Hi, I stayed at the La Quinta Inn in Clifton and it was literally a scary place. It may have just been the circumstances because it took me a long while to find and the hotel, and the room that I ended up getting (at close to 3am) was an older unit that had an old campground/run-down motel feeling to it. Besides feeling like something was going to jump out of the next room, and the next morning some people looking slightly sketchy, the breakfast was decent and the area was not all that bad. I think if I had got one of the renovated units it would have been fine, but I wanted to keep away from hotel on this trip. As for the Secaucus location, I've just read some sub-par reviews and I read some great reviews for the Hyatt place, which was being got for the same price or cheaper. But La Quinta's offer free breakfast and free parking, and as I just discovered, from thereuare, they have a bus that goes into NYC, not bad.
