    Nicely Upgraded La Quinta

    Clean, modern, large, and pet friendly Wyndam hotel with courteous staff. And a plus is the attached Red Robin restaurant! Conveniently located near the Garden State Parkway! Recommended!

    Great staff and amenities

    The staff is very responsive to all requests, including quickly getting a microwave and refrigerator for the room. The room was generally quiet and comfortable.

    Needs improvement

    Staff was great. Very nice, professional. But bathroom had hair in the tub 🤢. Room was meh at best. But bed was comfortable. Dog friendly hotel with no grassy area with poop bags and trash bin.

    Perfect for what we needed

    Quiet and clean. We were all comfortable here (including the pup). Good breakfast. Not far from NYC and Liberty State Park in NJ. Expensive for La Quinta however everything in the area is pricey.

    Great location!

    What drew us to this hotel was the fact that they didn’t charge a pet fee! Other places (that are not as clean) charge upwards of $200 per stay. This hotel was in the best location! Next to and across from a plethora of stores, anything you can think of. Loved that the pet friendly rooms were on the first floor, for easy access for my older boy. Clean rooms, and lobby was stocked with drinks, snacks, and toiletries (a bit expensive, but super convenient if in a pinch). Will definitely stay again.

    One of the best La Quintas we stayed at

    Very clean, big room, and our golden retriever loved it as well. We would stay again. Wished all La Quintas offered this kind of standard.

    We had a great time!

    This La Quinta lets dogs stay on any floor (some only do 1st floor). The hotel staff was really nice.

    Clean & Convenient

    Stopped here on a road trip just to sleep for the night. Would return if I needed to. Pros: room was clean, plenty free parking in the lot, lots of open space to walk the dog, wasn’t crowded at all, no issues with check in, vending machines in the lobby. Cons: toilet seat was loose/sliding, minor cosmetic issues, lots of external noises due to busy road & thin walls. My dog is reactive to sounds so he was on high alert at first but we turned the TV on to drown the sounds out, which worked & he chilled out.

    Ok hotel, did the job

    Decently nice hotel that seemed to be in the middle of renovations. No issue with the puppy and found a few spots around the building to take her our. Room never really cooled off, and she (a Samoyed) struggled a little bit. Probably won't stay here again, but did the job.

    Quiet & Clean, Great Location!

    Located between the Garden Stare Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike, this was an easy off/on halfway through my 2-day driving trip. The lobby, hallways, and room were clean and smelled fresh. Overall it was quiet and relaxing - exactly what was needed after a day of driving. The room was large enough to not feel cramped. Red Robin restaurant is located next door. The dog relief area was nearly 100% clean of unscooped poop - a first in my travels this summer.

    This was my pup’s and my first stay there; if all La Quinta’s are like this, the brand will be my go-to wherever possible! Interaction with hotel staff was limited (as was the presumably pandemic-influenced[?] breakfast offerings), however, other than the front desk person when we departed (who was efficient yet not too friendly), staff were pleasant and welcoming. As a diabetic, the breakfast offerings were too carb-laden to be healthy, appropriate choices. That was a disappointment but not a dealbreaker in my pup’s and my overall positive experience at this La Quinta.

    Okay stay, needs upgrading

    The staff was nice and helpful. Our first room smelled of cigarette smoke, but they gave us another immediately and apologized for the issue. The facilities needed care and updating. The grass was very high which made it difficult to pick up dog waste and we were unsure what was in the grass. There was overflowing garbage and cigarette butts on the grounds. The bathroom was very small and the entire room needed updating.

    This was a very nice Hotel

    This was a very nice Hotel. The staff was friendly. The room was excellent. Everything was very clean. The hotel is located in a very busy congested area and traffic noise outside was very loud, however, there was no noise at all in the hotel from the traffic outside. We were very happy with the room and we were given a bag breakfast to take with us when we left. There was not a lot of space to walk the dog but it was adequate for our needs. The signs in the parking lot declining responsibility for vandalism gave some pause for concern, but we had no problems at all along that line. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    LaQuinta Inn & Suites, Clifton NJ

    The place was fine but the staff running the hotel seem a bit overwhelmed. A few not so friendly. The garbage on the outside of the hotel and in the lobby area was continuously overflowing. In the back parking lot several times while I was walking my dog I came in contact with people smoking pot. I did tell a staff member and they said they are trying to control it. The room seemed very clean.

    Comfortable and clean

    This was our second stay here. Very comfortable and clean., pet friendly. The room I had was ideally located on the first floor right by the back exit for easy access to walk the dog. I would definitely recommend. We will be back!!

    Terrible stay

    Very noisy all night long; people trooping up and down the hallway. Nauseating perfumed cleaning smell was n room. No way to dispel, because windows do not open.
