Our double room at BW Fort Lee was clean and comfortable, at a regular online price with free parking that is a bargain for NYC. It is a quick run across the George Washington Bridge from northern Manhattan and the Bronx. I have not stayed at its main competitor, the slightly more expensive Holiday Inn across the highway, but the BW Fort Lee seems a good choice for the budget conscious.
The room and the two beds are large. The TV and internet worked fine. The bathroom was clean and had a nice large mirror circled by lights that worked well for my wife putting on makeup. The fan kept it from fogging when we took showers. The layout of the bathroom is a little awkward, with the towel rack more than ten feet from the shower at the end of a little nook with the toilet, and the water is more warm than hot. But it all worked.
The breakfast is chain motel in variety, but it seems this BW does not use the BW for its food supplies. Some of the pastries were excellent, some not so much, and the tater tots were taste-inedible. Scrambled eggs and sausage links were standard microwave fare, and the waffles were batter-pour normal. Better coffee than usual.
For less confident drivers, its roughly 60-degree right turn and narrow entrance directly off a busy highway might be challenging. The hotel layout is a lengthy one-way street, making it a long walk to breakfast and checking out. Staff was very friendly. less
