Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were in Tenafly for a family event. Otherwise, there is no reason to be in Tenafly and no reason to stay and the Clinton Inn. The room smelt of smoke. It was large; the bathroom passed the throne test with flying colors. Bathroom shelf space was adequate. The shower had a dial head, which was inadequate at any setting and dated the last redecoration to long, long ago. My daughter was also staying at Clinton and said water pressure was non-existent, it was adequate in our room.

The staff was very helpful. There was a water leak in the bathroom. As it turned out, the leak was from a pipe behind a wall. All the visible plumbing joints were tight and dry. It took several visits from the maintenance staff to figure out what was going on. The maintenance staff was prompt, courteous, and very helpful. They offered to change the room, but it was quiet (there was a large group of noisy kids staying) and we decided to stay put.

Location was very good. Walk to sunny down-town Tenafly for breakfast and dinner.

The pandemic has hit many hotels heavily. People did not travel or if they did, then they did not spend as much as before. The pandemic is over but the full power of the travel dollar has not reached the Clinton yet.
Baseboards peel up in the elevators. Staffing is short and even if you ask for your room to be service, you are told that not is only every two days. The staff is friendly and tries to be helpful, but the front desk may sit unwatched for ten minutes or more while the clerk helps a guest, letting one believe that security is not number one in their book of service ideas.
The rooms are clean and just adequate. It is centered in the heart of Tenafly-if you have a need to be in the heart of Tenafly. If the rooms are this meager then their events and conference service must be even worse.

We stayed here for 2 nights for a school reunion. The room was very spacious. However, in the room, the TV wasn't working, the toilet had issues flushing, the hook on the back of the bathroom door was broken, the bathroom skink was cracked, and the cooling/heating system sounded like a jet engine on takeoff. In terms of public areas, all ice machines on the property were broken; the restaurant is closed. Overall, everything just looked tired and a bit uncared for. The desk staff were great, though, and issues that could be were fixed. We picked this property because of its convenient location and would likely do so again for the same reason.

Our stay at the Clinton Inn was amazing. In the midst of these trying times, we felt safe and the room was extremely sanitized. The hotel is well maintained and clean. The General Manager, Robert, is extremely welcoming and accommodating. If you are going to northern Bergen County, the Clinton Inn is your best bet!

I recently stayed 1 night in this hotel. It did not meet my expectations. I had reserved a room with two Queen beds. The room was not in good condition. It smelled badly and was extremely stuffy despite the A/C unit running non-stop (it was on and on the coolest setting when I arrived…so, it’s not like it was off for an extended period of time prior to my arrival). The bathroom sink faucet was missing part of the handle for the cold water…something that housekeeping should have noticed and alerted management and/or the maintenance staff of so that it could be addressed before guests arrived. There also appeared to be mold in one corner of our ceiling.

The hallway was also NOT in good shape. The wallpaper around two adjacent rooms was secured to the wall by blue painter’s tape… not sure if those rooms were being renovated? Or, the wall paper was just peeling off due to age and excess humidity in the hallway? Bottom line, it felt like the A/C was NOT on in the hallway (at least of the 2nd floor, where our room was located). It appeared to be on in the hallway of the 1st floor. Given how dated The in-room air conditioning units are, management HAS to have the hallway A/C as the in-room units just cannot cool down the room appropriately.

Given the stuffiness of the room and potential mold issue, we requested a new room. Betsie the front desk agent was very nice and upgraded us to the Alpine suite, which was much better. That room had TWO A/C units in it so the air was not as stuffy, and the bathroom actually had two functioning faucet handles!

I’ll also note that the restaurant, Palmer’s Crossing, is closed. While this IS noted on their website when you click on “Dining”, the confirmation email I received for the reservation, indicates that the restaurant IS open. I hadn’t clicked on every link on their website, and assumed that the communication with my reservation was accurate, so I was rather disappointed to find that the restaurant was closed.

Hotel price matched Hotwire which helped to economize emergent stay. Staff was very helpful with repeated help with making copies, printing and faxing documents. Housekeeping staff worked very hard in keeping stock supplies and environment clean. Thank you for the coffee packets-on-demand which were surprisingly tasteful for coffee packets. The building itself has the charm and decor of an older hotel which gives it more soul.

I stayed at the Clinton in 5 days a week for 2 months for a temporary work assignment. It was a perfect experience the facility was conveniently located, a good value for the cost, clean, staff was always very friendly and accomodating. I had a favorite room and staff always reserved that particular room for me each and every week. Everyone was so very nice! I would stay there again and I would highly recommend the hotel. The guest laundry was conveniently located and free of charge. My stay was during the COVID pandemic so gym and restaurant were closed.

Stayed two nights and the first night we switched rooms twice. No matter how many times we spoke to the front desk they completely ignored our concerns. The air conditioner in our room did not work, they said the controls in all rooms did not work and it was centrally controlled but there was no cool air. Their answer was to give us a fan, The refrigerator did not cool so we used ice from the ice machine to cool it. They did not clean our room and said they only clean the rooms every other day but never told us that when we checked in. In the first room we had the TV did not work and they also had a fan in that room because the air conditioner did not work. Please save yourself a lot of inconvenience and do not stay in this hotel. In fairness, The bed was very comfortable and we Would’ve had a good nights sleep if it wasn’t for the fact we had air conditioning

I was pleasantly surprised at how big my room was. It was very clean and all of the lines and towels were new and bright white. The hotel is away from traffic and I was able to get a great night's sleep. I stayed during a huge snowstorm and the underground parking saved me from digging out my car. It's walking distance from a diner and restaurants which was a plus as well.

I booked on the net and I did not communicate with them by email. You can call them directly, the number mentioned on the Web is +1 201-871-3200. I had a rented car, so I cannot comment about availability of a shutle, other than that I did not see any during the five days I stayed there. The bus mentioned by the other answers has a stop just in front of the hotel and takes you to Port Authority in Manhattan.
