Positive Reviews

Budget-friendly hotel option

While not necessarily found to offer value for money, guests do tend to find this hotel to be a budget-friendly choice. Rates are low - certainly lower that the average price of hotel rooms in nearby Jersey City and beyond in Manhattan.

Convenient location for airport

The location here won’t appeal to everyone but guests have found it a convenient option when taking a flight to or from Newark Liberty International Airport. Guests also note that there is shopping nearby.

Friendly staff

Previous guests have found the staff at this Clifton Hotel is friendly and welcoming. There are problems at this hotel but the staff does appear willing to help as much as they are able.

Negative Reviews

Guests may find area unsafe

Despite the convenience of being near the airport and shopping, guests haven’t been enthralled with the immediate surroundings of the property. Guests report catching sight of prostitutes and drug deals - sightings which make the fact that the exterior door locks are broken even worse.

Multiple disappointments with rooms

Guests rarely have many positive things to say about the room quality here, with most reporting multiple areas of concern. Overall, the accommodation is found to be dirty, especially the bathrooms where mold is a common issue. Rooms also appear to suffer from a lack of proper maintenance.

Noisy surroundings

Previous guests have frequently found this hotel noisy. The property seems very poorly soundproofed as guests have reported excessive noise levels from both inside and outside. Earplugs are a must.
