Historical Traveler Reviews Candlewood Suites Jersey City
Wonderful Place to Stay
I visited New York City for a dance workshop but arranged to stay here because of good reviews and the reasonable price. The place is very convenient from the Pavonia PATH station. The city itself looks so clean compared to New York City. It reminded me more of Century City in CA or Crystal City in VA. Check-in was very easy. I presented my Priority Club card and they oriented me with the facilities, amenities, etc.
When I went inside the suite...wow! It was spacious, it had a nice long table in the middle, like in a conference room. The kitchenette was complete with stovetop, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, fridge. The TV had a VCR, and since I bought some choreography tapes, I was able to view them immediately. The clock in the living room had a CD player, so it also helped me to practice the choreography that I was learning in the workshop. Bathroom is also nice and spacious, and the room had a great view of the harbor.
The Candlewood Cupboard is also a valuable part of this place. I was able to save a lot on food just by accessing this feature. It is done on an honor system. If you don't have the exact change, just go over to the front desk and they will help you; otherwise, charge it to your room.
For anyone going to New York City, stay at this hotel. It's nice and quiet, has a nice view, is convenient to the Pavonia PATH Station, and it costs less than the expensive New York hotels, but is more spacious and clean.
If you're driving to NYC, this is the place to stay!
Only able to stay 2 days and 1 night but wished we could have stayed longer! Very easy to get to NYC. The ferry is one block in front of the hotel. The PATH trains are about 2 or 3 blocks away - a pleasant walk along the river. The PATH train to World Financial Center arrives through the bottom of the WTC site. It provided an unique prospective. At night, we felt completely safe walking from the PATH station back to the hotel. Even though we checked out the next morning, we were permitted to leave our car in the hotel's secure lot for the entire day without any additional charges while we explored the Big Apple. Would definitely stay here again (and hopefully longer)!
During a visit to Jersey City to see my relatives I chose to stay at Candlewood Suites. It was by far the best away from home stay ever!! The staff was professional and knowledgable, FREE SECURED PARKING, complimentary movies, popcorn and cd's to play in your VCR or CD player. They offer a huge clean, modern, cozy and comfy suite. HIghly recommend!!!
Home base for a great NYC trip
New hotel, great location, free parking, close to the water taxi's that go into Manhattan and close to the Path train station that can take you as far as 38th and 6th (Macys) for $1.50. You can even cook your meals and save even more $$. Shuttle can take you to the Path station if you don't feel like walking a few blocks!!
What a deal!
Great stay.The staff is friendly, the rooms are big, the kitchennetes are stocked with everything you will need to make dinner or lunch. They even have free videos and a little grocery on the honor system. Perfect alternative to staying in an expensive, tiny manhattan hotel
have stayed at candlewood suites 3x. Very easy to get to manhatten via path train or water ferry. also light rail that runs to hoboken is just outside the door. Rooms nice, hotel is very close to hudson river. walking path along the river is very close. Am going to stay there again. candlewood suite people know many of their customers names, because some people stay there long term.. close to grocery store a&p and major shopping center has food court within walking distance or short ride on light rail. CLEAN, QUIET AND COMFORTABLE. rj
Great fitness center
I stayed at Candlewood during a plumbing disaster at my nearby apartment, and I felt more at home in my temporary suite than I do in my apartment. The fitness center on the first floor is the best I've seen in a hotel: the cardiovascular equipment was well-maintained and the space was ample.
THE Place to Stay!
Spent the wkend (2 nights) at the Candlewood Suites Jersey City Nov.
2003 and were extremely pleased! Check out the wkend 2 nites for 1 offer using Visa to reserve - can't be beat! 1bdrm suite is very large - beds comfortable - and the entire place is very nice and appears to be new. If you stay there, eat at Darrian's Pub & Restaurant on Washington Blvd!
Great Place to Stay near Manhattan!
Great service, excellent room w/full size kitchen for long-term stays.
Take path train to Manhattan - grat alternative to pricey NYC hotels.
Found it on expedia.
Wonderful Place to Stay
I have no complaints about this hotel. The customer service was flawless, the room was in excellent shape, it was convenient to public transportation, and the price was even pretty reasonable (for the NYC area). I highly recommend it.

The mosquito bites I have been collecting like refrigerator magnets since Memphis woke me up with their incessant itching a few minutes before six o'clock in the morning. I got up and started coffee, then paid some bills and watched TV until about eight o'clock, when I woke Cindy up. Because we had packed up the trailer the day before, it was an easy job to secure the few things that were out and hitch up. By ten ...
WE DID: - caught bus to NYC - made our way across town to our hotel to dump our stuff - decided to keep hold of our valuables after seeing the area we're staying in! - walked towards Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to grab some lunch - walked to Brooklyn Bridge Park to take in the skyline - settled down in the park with a picnic to enjoy a free opera concert courtesy of The Met - perfect way to end the trip! WE LOVED: - free ...
... across the street to catch our train. To top it off, she tannoys us through the subway sound system and guides us to the best place to stand to get on the subway and get off right by the escalator at the other end! She is our person of the day! So helpful!
So that’s where we are at now, riding the train to New York Penn station due to arrive at 3:19. Fingers crossed it’s a nice easy transaction getting into the apartment there!
... to Queens¨as I entered...it brought a smile to my face. The bridges here eh not so much a fan (5 bridges in whole race, 2 in Queens entering and leaving..brr). Although the Queensboro did/does have the most surprising and spectacular views of the city. The Bronx was also short, about a mile and had very winding streets, it was my first time stepping foot there, and the city center we ran through was pure greatness, not as wide of streets, tree lined, filled, I mean filled with ...
