The whole travel on a whim and change up the route whenever we feel the urge, is harder than we anticipated. We secured a room in Baltimore the night before leaving Washington, based on Lonely Planets recommendation, but we are thinking we might write to them advising an update. America's Best Inn was our resting place, and it was okay given that …
... Lick Barbecue and I had a slice of pizza from Mangia.
With my points I was able to score us first class and business class tickets to and from Brazil, so there was a meal served on the way to JFK, but none of us ate it. The food is so terrible tasting to us that we just prefer to wait for arrival. We arrived without incident and quickly claimed our bags. After baggage claim we scouted out a path to the subway. We first had ...
... s going to happen! Take it or leave it baby this was my New York City!.................
So as you already know I left Ireland to head for the states to meet up with my cousin Jen to start our USA trip. NYC was our first destination. I flew out of Dublin, back to Frankfurt spent the night at the Frankfurt airport (I don't recommend! It's nothing like Bangkok, KL or Singapore!) I then flew into JFK about six hours before Jen, so I went into the city, picked up ...
... Brooklyn but until I walked around I had no idea if I'd find a good view or not. This one is pretty good, all things considered.
The rest are fairly self-explanatory, except the last one; it's looking through one of the windows in the library at the bow of the ship. Not much to see, of course, but the idea is pretty cool, I think.
... ready to fly off, there were lots of planes ready to fly off so we had to wait at the end of the line to fly off. We started flying and we went through a bit of unexpected turbulence. So it was a bit of a bumpy ride. Finally we are at LA we are all very tired. We collected our bags found our bus and went to our hotel named: Ménage Hotel. We were in our rooms and got ready for bed. What a big day, and there is heaps more to come!! :) Madeleine ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Secaucus / Meadowlands
I just stayed here for two days on business, and while I agree that the location isn't the easiest, (follow Hilton's directions, NOT mapquest's!), it's a great hotel for the price.
I stayed at the Hilton just last week. The hotel is clean & safe & I found the service overall to be acceptable. However, I can't emphasize enough (as others have mentioned) the walking distance from the bus stop drop off to the hotel. If you are not in good walking health or have young children, you may want to consider another hotel as crossing the main street to get to the hotel often involves jogging between traffic. If either is the case I would suggest renting a car & driving to & from the PATH station or staying at a hotel that provides a shuttle to & from the PATH subway.
Great Hotel Great Price
I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this hotel, considering our low price - just over a hundred dollars for a Saturday night. Our room was spotless, the linens were great, the bathroom was nice, and the service was excellent.
Nice hotel, bad location
This is a very nice, clean hotel. Overall, I found management eager to please and staff friendly and helpful.
Free parking is a major plus.
The hotel can be difficult to get to by car. There is a bus stop just outside making it easy to get into NYC, but note that the return bus stop is somewhat far and the return walk is along and across very busy streets.
The area around the hotel is commercial and not very attractive.
We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Secacus 4 nights for the July 4th Holiday. The hotel was clean, the furnishings were well mantained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Although they do not have a free breakfast we were given coupons for the breakfast and the cost of the full buffett was only a couple of dollars per person when using the coupons or if you only wanted continental then it was free with the coupons. The pool was nice as well as the hot tub. The hotel is close to the city and public transportation was easy to use and picked up right in front of the hotel. We booked a day bus tour and they picked us up and dropped us off at the front of the hotel. The staff was good to give directions and help with tours and local information.
Stayed one night in process of retreiving my daughter from college in Manhattan. Room and premises were cleaner and brighter than the more expensive Hampton Inn I had stayed at previously (on other side of freeway). Bathroom had upscale fixtures, counter, tile etc that I didn't expect at this price point. I would recommend that one become knowledegable about the road system around the hotel as it is indeed confusing. There are numerous good eating spots and stores nearby on Route 3 but you will need a car to get to these.
I wish I'd paid attention to the guy who said it was difficult to get to
The staff was friendly and the hotel was clean and comfortable. However, we felt like we'd been sold a bill of goods about it being conveniently located. Once we got off the Turnpike, we were snarled in a maze of service roads and on and off ramps for another hour before we actually made it into the hotel -- we could see it, but we couldn't get to it. Plus the bus that takes you into NY picks you up right in front of the hotel but on the return trip it drops you off across about eight lanes of freeway and down the street -- not too swell when you're 8 months pregnant in June. We ended up going home a day early because we didn't want the hassle of getting to and from NYC again.
Very nice hotel, loved it
We stayed in this hotel on April 2005, for two nights. The hotel looks new or newly renovated, our room, kingsize bed non-smoking, was spacious and very pleasant. We had our breakfast at the hotel which is not complimentary but rich and very reasonably priced. There is a bus in front of the hotel that goes to Manhattan, on the way back though, it leaves you a few minutes walk away. If you come by car, be sure to have your directions rights, the hotel (although easily seen from the main roads) is very easy to miss.
We'd love to stay there again.
Family of 5 stayed here in two rooms in July, 2004 as last stop on cross-country trip. What is most memorable about this hotel is how hard it was to get to it. There are frontage roads and lots of merging and splitting. It's one of those situations where you can see the hotel, but you can't get to it. And there is the very reasonable fear that if you don't pay attention, you will end up on the New Jersey Turnpike or in the Lincoln Tunnel heading to NYC! Once you finally make it to the hotel somehow, and park in the parking garage, you can relax and enjoy what it a very nice place to stay. Part of my family was attending a sporting event at the Meadowlands, and we found that this hotel was very conveniently located for that. The staff was very friendly and made an excellent suggestion for a local pizza restaurant that delivered true, New Jersey pizza to our room (we decided not to try to drive anywhere, in case we couldn't find our way back!). The free high-speed Internet worked very well. My only complaint with Hilton Garden Inns in general is that the breakfast is not complimentary, as it is with Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites, Springhill Suites and other similar "entry-level luxury" business hotels. I also was surprised that there was no express check-out, even though I'm a HiltonHonors member. Finally, I noticed that the pool seemed mostly populated by people who did not appear to be hotel guests (they let each other in since they didn't have rooms keys) and I wondered if they were friends of the hotel employees. As I was checking out, I overheard another guest discussing a security problem in the pool area the previous night. The hotel management might want to take some steps to insure that the hotel's facilities are used only by hotel guests. I hope not to spend much time in the future in New Jersey, but if I do, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
For a relatively small hotel and the lowest price, I found the Hilton Garden "Inn" a class higher than "2-stars" for two main reasons. First, this place includes almost all the amenities one can think of--swimming pool, jacuzzi, whirlpool, 24-hour pantry to buy food for the frig and microwave included in the room, small office with computer, printer, copier, and fax (everything except fax is free I think). The free high-speed internet and ability to print right from the room is a definitely plus. There is a good Caribbean restaurant right next door. The NJ Transit Bus is ideal for those without a car because it runs frequently and late and reaches the Port Authority Terminal within 15-20 minutes.
