I had a wedding to go to in Staten Island and needed a room for me and my family for 5 days in the area. After reading bad reviews for every motel in Staten Island and NJ, I decided to try the Swan Motel. I have to say, they really are a “diamond in the rough”, with great service and clean rooms. We got 2 suites, really cheap, and they were huge! The patrons are great, most being contractors and families, quiet and respectful. Really close to 278, shopping and restaurants.

This place is a real gem. The staff treats you like family, rooms are newly renovated, and prices are reasonable. We needed a ride to the train when we were checking out. The property owner was right there and took us, personally, to the train. Now that’s service!!!


I recently stayed at the Swan Motel. I looked at the reviews and cant understand some of the negative comments. I dont know what the rooms used to look like but it appears that they have redone them. I had a basic room with what appeared to be new wallpaper, furniture and even a Flat panel TV. The carpet was new as well. They had a diner next door for a late night snack. The staff was very helpful with directions in the morning. I saw business people in the lobby having coffee. There were a number of pilots and flight attendants getting on their shuttle van. I will stay here again. it was a great experience.
