More About Jersey City, NJ Hotels...

Stay for a Weekend for the Cheapest Rates

Jersey City hotels tend to fill quickly because of the influx of tourists and business travelers, so reserve early to make sure you get a room at your desired location. It's especially difficult to find a room around major holidays. Visitors usually find the cheapest prices on weekends (due to fewer business travelers) and out of holiday season.

Cheap Hotels Near the Airport

Newark Liberty International Airport serves Jersey City and has several affordable hotels nearby, including the Holiday Inn Newark Airport and Hampton Inn Newark Airport. 

A taxi from the airport to Jersey City proper costs $40, and the train costs around $12 and takes 45 minutes. An uberX ride will only set you back $18-25. Zipcar serves Jersey City, and you will find most available cars along the waterfront. 

Stay on the Waterfront for the Best Location

If you're visiting Liberty State Park, the Statue of Liberty, or the Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial, then the waterfront is the most convenient place to stay. Unfortunately, hotel prices along the Hudson River with views of Manhattan Island tend to be high (in the $300-plus range), although they're still a bargain compared to Manhattan. Candlewood Suites Jersey City is highly rated and one of the more affordable hotels along the waterfront.

You'll find cheap motels, such as the Red Carpet Inn Jersey City (called the Rodeway Inn), along Tonnelle Avenue (US 1-9) heading to Union City, but this area might not be as safe.

The Ramada Inn Jersey City is a comfortable, solid budget pick. The hotel is three miles from the Liberty State Park and the Statue of Liberty. It's only a five-minute walk to the PATH station, making it one of the cheap hotels in Jersey City near the PATH train.

Airbnb is a Cheap Alternative for Solo Travelers

With over 811 listings in Jersey City, Airbnb is an affordable alternative to staying in a hotel. If you're a single traveler, you can pick up a private room along the Hudson for under $100 a night. Airbnb listings for apartments on the waterfront are generally half to two-thirds the price of a hotel room, plus you'll get more private space and a place to cook. As expected, you can snag cheaper prices farther away from the waterfront, where there are many studio or one-bedroom apartments for under $120 a night.

Resources to Help You Stay on Budget

UberX (https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/uber/id368677368), Zipcar (http://www.zipcar.ca/mobile), and the iTrans NJT apps (http://www.itrans.info/landing/NJT/) will make getting around Jersey City easier.

Affordable Ways to See Jersey City Attractions

Jersey City's biggest tourists draws are Liberty State Park (and the Statue of Liberty), the Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial, and the waterfront. For $18, Statue Cruises will take you to Ellis Island, but tickets to climb to the statue's crown cost $24 per adult. A more affordable alternative is to take the free Staten Island Ferry, which offers great views from the water, but you don't set foot on Ellis Island. Admission to the Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial is free for all, as is walking along the waterfront. 

 



Budget-Friendly Comfort in Jersey City

The area around Newark Liberty International Airport is full of great American memories. The closest hotels that won't break the bank are Wyndham Garden Hotel Newark Airport and Best Western Plus Newark Airport West.

Plenty of Fun for a Low Price

To experience a piece of the USA's history, check out Liberty State Park or ride the ferry for free at Statue Cruises. Bring families to the Liberty Science Center, with IMAX movie theaters and many exhibits. To stay close to these attractions consider the affordable Econo Lodge.

Ensuring a Convenient Arrival

Once you arrive in Newark Liberty International Airport, avoid the airtrain and take a shuttle to one of the car rental sites, including Enterprise, Hertz, Budget Rent-A-Car and others. For more relaxed trips, take a shuttle to reach your hotel or hail a cab.

Like Never Leaving Home

One definite option for comfort and savings is the variety of Airbnbs for under $100 a night, all just north of the airport. Keep in mind the length of your stay, however, because some Airbnbs require a minimum number of nights to book. Consider sticking to a hotel if you're just passing through Jersey City for one or two days.
