Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Good place to stay
My wife and I stayed three nights for a weekend trip to New York. New Jersey Candlewood Suites are convenient to get across to New York on PATH and provide more spacious and lower cost accommodation than in Manhattan itself. Then you have the wonderful view of Manhattan - particularly spectacular at night. The room was set up for business visitors rather than couples. Indeed we needed to move the hefty easy chair in order to get into the vast double bed on one side. A two-seater sofa and slightly smaller bed would make the rooms more flexible. That said the bed and room were very comfortable and kitchen area well equipped. Soundproofing between room could be better, but was OK.
Overall a good and comfortable base for a New York trip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noah1960 Convenient location at a great price.
My wife and I have been attending the New York Burlesque Festival for the past few years, and have stayed at Candlewood Suites in Manhattan so we had access to a kitchen in our suite. However, because Manhattan hotel rates have risen so much, we decided to try the Candlewood Suites in Jersey City, which is only one light rail stop away from lower Manhattan.
The overall quality of the hotel was very good, and it was only about half a mile from the rail station, which runs 24 hours. The area was safe for walking, day or night (it's Jersey City's business district), and there are also sometimes taxis waiting. The hotel shuttle makes it easy to get to local stores, but I wish it ran a bit more often on weekdays.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay, enjoyed paying less than half the price of the same property in midtown Manhattan, and would probably stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharon/Dean Great value, clean and so easy to access New York City
Very nice front desk staff. The Suite was large and comfortable and it was just a short walk to the PATH station.Its not a big swanky hotel. but it is clean and updated and the Suite is fully equipped with what you would need. We felt very safe and the gated parking lot out front was very convenient .I would definitely recommend this hotel. NO tunnel to deal with and you can't beat the price!
