Easy access from Hwy 78. Beautiful setting and assured sense of security. Ask for room on front of building (even numbers).

We mostly enjoyed our stay at the Candlewood in Jersey City. We had a beautiful view of the Hudson River from our room and took a nice walk along the waterfront the next day. Accommodations were clean and updated. We even found something reasonable in the cupboard. The only problems arose when we went to leave. My one son and I left to load up our bags and I left one boy resting in the room. We came right back up within 5 minutes, I'd say and the room key wouldn't work. Only later, was I informed that the magnetic strip may deactivate if placed near a cell phone or something like that. Anyway, I became a little bit frantic, as my one boy who is 8 and has special needs was in the locked room. I asked the maid for assistance and she refused, saying she couldn't open the door. She said contact the front desk. While I understand the policy, I felt like she could have tried to help in some other way, even if she was not allowed to open the door. Especially, since young children were involved. I had my other 8 year old run down to the front desk where he was given a new card key without problem so that was good. Finally, I am still waiting for the "deposit" to released and it has been over a week. This is annoying and pointless in my eyes as I have already paid for my stay.
