Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bizmark Excellent Location and Value
My business colleagues and I stayed at this location for a total of over 100 nights over the past year and a half. We needed a place with parking and easy access to public transportation. Candlewood Suites, Jersey City was perfect for us. An easy walk to two different PATH stations got us in and out of the city fast each day without having to pay Manhattan rates. The rooms were a little small, but were clean and comfortable. Hall carpets and bath mirrors were all replaced during our stay even though most didn't really appear to need it. The housekeeping and front desk staff were great, always cheerful and pleasant to deal with. Occasionally the internet was a little slow and sometimes the TV programming would go out due to snow on the satellite dish, but for the most part these minor inconveniences were short-lived. The rooms on the entrance side offer a better view and are a little quieter if a choice is available. If I need an extended stay location for business in Manhattan again, Candlewood Suites Jersey City will be my first choice!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pkalpu Everything but Internet was great
I have been at Candlewood for more times over the past 5 years than I can think of and always enjoyed the stay.
This time was no different with courteous staff, attentive front desk etc but I had the worst internet service of all. Neither cell phones nor laptops connected strongly over the course of my stay. They would get disconnected every few mins only forcing to reconnect on my own. Also the a/c seemed to make loud noise that I couldnt hear any outside noise. Apart from that, all good! all good!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LEMIS Gateway to Manhattan
We were visiting a relative who lives in midtown Manhattan. We looked for a hotel from which we could travel quickly and inexpensively across the Hudson, and this was it. A five minute walk to the PATH station and ten minutes by rail to a meeting near the WTC station.
Arrival was easy and the front staff was cheerful, helpful and PROUD of their hotel. Self-parking was inexpensive and secure. The suite was large and comfortable.
The only problem was an AC unit that wouldn't go below 77 degrees. Unfortunately, since we got back to the hotel late, we didn't report it until check out, so I can't comment on a maintenance response.

We have stayed at this hotel several times since 2008. Great location for visiting NYC. It's also convenient to Port Liberty Cruise Port terminal in Bayonne for anyone taking a cruise like we were.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bearrrrrr Nice staff at the front desk; great value
adjacent to PATH station to midtown and downtown Manhattan. The front desk, Ruth, is very nice and willing to help. Overall, you pay what you get. In terms of this, Candlewood suites did a great job.

Stayed here one night to catch ferry in morning to visit Statue of LIberty. Requested a room with a view of city and was upgraded to a one bedroom suite with a great view. Rooms were very modern and clean. This is a nice safe, quiet location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grad School Student Mom Excellent Customer Service and Accomodations
~My recent stay at your hotel was most enjoyable. My only regret is that I only stayed one night! The staff was very attentive to all our needs immediately outlining details about travel to/from NYC. The staff arranged a taxi the day of departure once they knew it was needed! The suite was very nicely furnished, very comfortable. It was clean and 'clean feeling'. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling and wishing to stay close to The City without paying the costs of The City. However, be prepared to ride the train or pay City costs for taxi commute! I loved my stay at Candlewood Suites and shall return there to stay again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kimmie757 Enjoyed my stay
Stayed here when I picked my son up from NJCU and enjoyed my stay. Its location was a convienant commute to the school and other attractions in the area. Went to the local mall in Newport where they only charge 3% throughout the entire mall. The hotel is also a few minutes away from Carlo's Bakery (The Cake Boss) in Hoboken. The view of the Sunday morning sunrise over the New York skyline from my room was breathtaking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent Value
This is a very practical set up for those who are willing to settle for common sense hospitality over plush and luxury. Been there...done that visiting the area from Baltimore/DC two or three times a year over the last 36 months staying at some of the 'upper level' places in the city and out. After all is said and done, this makes more sense for us by far AND THE WIFE LOVED IT!! The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed from the word go. And I was pleasantly surprised at the NO LOUD PARTYING sheet I was asked to sign at check in...My wife and I work hard, love quiet and have had problems with boisterousness outside our rooms at higher priced places both in the city and out. The quietness in the room and the general presence of the hotel was awesome, and that by itself will draw us back next time we get a nudge for some much needed 'R&R'. QUIET+PRACTICAL+COMMON SENSE = EXCELLENT VALUE

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Perfect for family break in New York
I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. We were given a very friendly welcome at the front desk, and all staff were friendly when passing in the hallways. The suite was clean and contemporary and perfect for a family of four with the separate bedroom and fully equipped kitchen. Complimentary hot drinks and newspapers were a nice touch, and the kids were able to borrow a DVD from reception to watch. The hotel is a very short walk from the Exchange Place PATH station; you're in New York City in minutes, at a fraction of the cost of staying in Manhattan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smokey's mommy Convinient, comfortable, caring
We needed to vacate our apartment due to public utilities shutting off service for major repairs. I needed a pet friendly hotel, close proximity to trains and quick access to main thoroughfares. This property was perfect! Not only did it fit the bill, but the staff could not have been nicer! Their attentiveness certainly added to the overall positive Candlewood hotel experience!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ltorio Convenient & Helpful Staff
The front desk staff was extremely helpful both at check in and check out. Our 2nd stay at this Jersey City Candlewood, chosen specifically for closeness of reaching the Exchange Place PATH station into Manhattan. Staff made sure I knew that PATH schedule changes on weekends closed Exchange Place...upon almost panic, they calmed me down and gave me full information on using the Newport PATH station, which was actually a better option for us this time. HUGE Help!. At checkout, we left a charging cable behind, staff retrieved it and we were able to pick it up before leaving the city. Room was pretty clean but feeling a bit dated...was much nicer when we last stayed 2 years ago. Sofa bed & recliner chair were very worn and uncomfortable. Kitchen/Bath/Main Bedroom were fine. Hallways were dirty and baseboard trim ripped out, kind of unpleasing. We'll stay here again largely for the convenience and awesome staff, but rooms need some maintenance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happy60th Comfortable and Clean
My husband, son and I were there to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday in NYC for one night. We were on a real budget and chose this hotel because of the price and location near NYC. We were very pleased with our room. It was comfortable and very clean. The overall apparence in the hallways (there was tape covering holes in the rug# could use some updating. The staff did not offer us a courtesy ride to the path train #a little disappointing) but, when checking out the next day, I did notice they offered other guest this priviledge. I would recommend this hotel to others.

My experience with the Candelwood Suites was the best ever. It is a secret piece of hide away in the heart of downtown JC. Close to restaurants transportation and activities it was a joy and pleasure for my family to stay. Rooms are comfortable and gives an appearance of being at home. And more importantly the staff was friendly and helpful. Can't wait for my next stay!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Big Bang Wood Never again
This hotel was advertised as recently renovated. It was worn out, and badly in need of refurbishing. It had the feel of a low class residential hotel. Several floors had sickening food cooking odors. No hot water on two separate days. Shower faucet came off in my hands with the water running. Commuter train runs along back side of hotel and is disruptive during the night. Furniture in room was worn out, including mattress. NO MAID SERVICE! Rooms were not cleaned daily, which is a big problem with the condition of the property. Guests had to present dirty towels at front desk for replacement. Hotel had a higher rate than adjacent 3 and 4 star properties, but offered in room amenities the others did not, such as microwave and refrigerator. I will not make the mistake of staying in this hotel again, as I travel to Jersey City several times a year for business. The Westin, Courtyard Marriott or Doubletree will get my business.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FirstTimer46 Great place...great price
I have nothing but positive comments for my stay at Candlewood Suites in Jersey City. The hotel was conveniently located downtown. The room was well equipped with a kitchenette - including paper towels, dish detergent, pots/pans plates, cups, eating utensils, etc. It even came with complimentary popcorn :-) We only stayed for one night, but the rooms are obviously equipped for extended stay. I previously stayed at a nearby hotel in Jersey City for a couple hundred dollars more. Staff was friendly and helpful. Plus, they're pet friendly! Not a lot of extra frills, but I wasn't looking for a 5 star hotel -- just something, clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, convenient and safe. Candlewood Suites in Jersey City fit the bill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GregorioOH Overall Nice Stay, Great Value for Price
The room was modern and the hotel was clean. Great furniture and TV. The desk staff were extremely friendly. I couldn't believe how great the price was considering it's great location. Easy walk to two different PATH stops in to NYC. The only downside was we woke up our last morning there to NO warm water, otherwise I would have given this a 5 star review for a great room for the price. The staff was already aware and extended everyone's checkouts until 2pm. They also knocked off 1/3 of the price of the room Things break and we understood that, so we were happy to see they took care of us the best they could. I would absolutely stay here again if ever back in the area and would definitely recommend it to a friend visiting.

This hotel is 1/2 block from riverside, panoramic view of downtown. Manhattan across the river. Despite its modest lobby, the rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. Ours had a lovely modern and fully outfitted kitchen with a large business center, good wifi and nice sitting area with large screen tv. Separate bedroom with a really comfortable bed. The bedroom is small, but the sitting area is a nice size. Lovely clean bathroom with great water pressure and super towels. I would put curtains you can close on the bedroom windows to block out th light, but otherwise I was very happy with the room. Convenient location and helpful staff.

Excellent choice of hotel with superb views of Manhattan skyline. Room was pleasant with good amenities. Only gripe for us were the paper thin walls so you can hear everything from room next door.
Shopping mall and Target are within walking distance. Tram runs in front of hotel to Hoboken. Path train about 15mins walk will get you into WTC within minutes and is very convenient. No housekeeping for stays under a week however this was not an issue as only needed clean towels from front desk. No shampoos available in bathroom, only soaps. Powerful hairdryer in bottom drawer in bathroom unit. Excellent choice of TV channels including BBC America, HBO and Cartoon network, PBS and Nicklodeon. They will gladly keep your luggage if you check out and have a later flight to catch which was nice.
Front desk very helpful and accomodating.
Overall highly recommend this property.

Great place to stay if you want a reasonable, clean ,friendly hotel . Our trip was for shopping in New York and the location of the hotel was only 2 blocks to the PATH station. It was very easy to travel the PATH to Manhattan to shop . Would definitely stay here again and recommend for weekend shopping trips.
