The Holiday Inn Saddle Brook would be my best guess for this one.

I am very familiar with this area, if you'd like a second option if this offer or zone is the best option for your plans, let me know your needs, budget, etc. for this trip and i'll advise accordingly.

Thanks for the help!  Really appreciate it.  We have an event to go to in Teaneck on Sunday(10th) then were thinking of hopping on a bus into NYC on Monday and then driving back to VA Monday evening.  Would like to stay under $100 with taxes and of course not stay in a dump....

 

Thanks again!

How much time will you have between your arrival to the area and the event in Teaneck that nite? Are you like to arrive to the area in the early afternoon and the event is at nite... or will you not arrive until late evening and it will be a 'rush' to get dressed and out the door to make it to the event on time? (or were you intending to drive right to the event?)

My goal of the above would be to see if staying further south would be helpful to minimize the drive a little as well as staying close to NYC for the trip there on Monday (as well as the possibility of checking-out of the hotel on Monday, driving south to a PATH station or Park N Ride, then start your journey home from there)

Let us know the info above and i'll review some options.

The 'issue' with the Holiday Inn Saddle Brook (besides the reviews which are not that good) is that it's a bit out of your way... assuming you will take I-95 (NJ Turnpike to/from) you will be passing that and traveling further west from Teaneck... not terrible, but not ideal, but on the other hand the price is right.

If you could expand your budget to $128 all-in there is a 3.5* on PRICELINE EXPRESS for $104/nite (Indoor Pool, Restaurant, Free Internet in room, Free Parking, Business Center, Fitness Center) which would like be a bit more convenient to your event. In the morning if there is a bus stop near the hotel you could take that into the city, although you more likely would want to head to Port Authority in NYC (42nd St and Eighth Ave) which would not be the quickest of strips (fast trip would be taking to the GW Bridge Port Authority but then you still need to head south to midtown)... i would sooner drive south to a Park N Ride, PATH train, or NY Waterway Ferry (this last option is expensive but an 'oh so nice' way to travel to the city) and commute from there... which would then make your trip back to VA a bit shorter.

If you need to stay within budget there is a 2.5* offered on PRICELINE EXPRESS for $85 ($105 all-in)... and a 2* in Paramus which would only be slightly less convenient (easy trip to Teaneck, likely Rte 17-->Rte 4) for $65/nite ($83/nite all-in... for this one i'd guess one of the Extended Stay properties)

Of course since your location seems a bit flexible (especially if you think driving to a Park N Ride or PATH train in the morning works for your needs since you then don't necessarily need to be walkable to a bus stop) you could also try bidding on PRICELINE for a little lower rate for any of these zones/star ratings.

Let us know your thoughts and we'll take it from there.

Thanks for all the info.  I had tried PRICELINE, I looked over in the priceline forum but there wasn't anything recent for that area, so not sure how much those are going for.  I'll have to take a look into the options you laid out and see what works best.

 

Thanks again

I generally try to stick with the 3 or 3.5* priceline's, I've gotten 1 or 2 dumps with the 2-2.5 stars.  Location really isn't important to me as long as I can keep it say 20 minutes or so from Teaneck and in the direction of VA would be even better(usually take I-78 to/from), and then if it can be 15-20 minutes from somehwere to pickup a train or bus into the city(with free parking if possible).

 

Any suggestions on hotwire vs priceline and what regions to select?

 

Thanks!

I generally try to stick with the 3 or 3.5* priceline's, I've gotten 1 or 2 dumps with the 2-2.5 stars.

The issue is that everything i'm seeing thru PRICELINE EXPRESS or HOTWIRE at the 3* or higher level is over $100 all-in.

If you want to try bidding on PRICELINE i would first look at the Teaneck at the 3.5* level up to $80 bid price (comes to $100 all-in). In this region you have THREE re-bid zones at the 3 star level. If you're not familiar with re-bidding please read Priceline Re-Bidding Explained and feel free to ask questions and/or confirm your re-bid zones with the board before proceeding.

Select 3.5* Teaneck...

Bid $65, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $70, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $80

If the above is rejected, i would then try the 3* level for both Teaneck and Hackensack, where you have ONE re-bid zone.

(you'll need to close the previous browser if that is still open and use this link to re-access PRICELINE)

Select 3* Teaneck...

Bid $65, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $70, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE...

Select 3* Hackensack...

Bid $65, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $70, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE...

Select 3* Teaneck and Hackensack...

Bid $75, if rejected add re-bid zone...

Bid $80

Let us know how the above goes and if rejected we'll take it from there.
