Just found out, the HUDSON PLAZA Motel, in Bayonne, NJ, no longer will allow you to park and leave your car, while on a cruise. 2 days ago, they did. Tried making reservations, today, they said they no longer allow. Parking at the port is now up to $15./day.
The Best Wester looks like it is not in a great area of town, hard to find, no restaurants in it or nearby, not an area to walk around at night anyway.They have a Park and Jet room price which is $60 more than the room.
We are staying at the Sheraton Newark Airport Hotel- but again, we are flying in and they have a free airport shuttle. We are taking a cab to the port ($40). I don't know if they have a parking thing for your car, but you could ask. 973-690-5500 (Helps if you have AAA also)
While BW does offer free parking and shuttle service - cousins is right about the area - pretty seedy and unless you plan to eat before you arrive or order Dominos pizza delivery - not much else around.
You may want to consider the Radisson or Country Inn and Suites at the Newark airport. Although they do not offer free shuttle service to the port (you'd have to take a taxi), they do offer free parking (Radisson - 14 days / Country Inn - 7 days).
Nancy- seems you know the area well???? We are at the Sheraton Newark Airport Hotel. do you know anything about this one? Also I believe we are 8 miles to Statue of Liberty and were told the cab fare to get there is $40- this sounds really expensive. Any help with this?
