Free on-site self laundry, proximity to transit station makes it easy to access to NYC. Very reasonable onsite parking.

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.

My family and I (five adult and one toddler) stayed in two suites over the weekend (14-16 Aug 2015). We were well pleased with the entire facility and staff. The only reason I did not rate the experience excellent was the AC unit was directly next to the sleeper sofa where my daughter and grandson slept and the fan had a plastic device over it which directed the air onto the sofa; and it was loud.

I would recommend this hotel based on the location, staff and overall condition of the hotel. I gave a low score on the quality of sleep due to the fact that the air conditioning unit cycles on and off and is quite loud. BUT, I am a very light sleeper. You can't beat the view of Manhattan along the nearby walkway. Very easy access to the PATH stations which get you to NYC in about 10 minutes. The boat to NYC is also about a 10 minute walk.

Please upgrade the rooms and the A/C. I want to be able to control the AC, and the room seemed outdated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NYCTravel15 Nice place to stay, cheaper than the Manhattan
Overall a nice option to staying in Manhattan. About a half mile walk or so to either of two PATH stations to take the train into the City so it's an easy commute. A bigger lobby with more seating would have been nice since our flight arrived earlier than check-in and we wanted to relax awhile before heading to the City. A continental breakfast would also be a nice addition. Perhaps one area could serve both purposes. Room cleaning services are once per week here, which is fine because we don't like to be bothered, but maybe just clean towels dropped off and trash picked up daily would be better.
