Any NY City Outskirts hotel close to train station and accessible to Penn Station NY City?
I am planning to visit NY city as a tourist for 3 days.
I have checked the hotel rates in times square and other locations in NY city and they are little bit expensive.
Now to cut down hotel costs, I was thinking if there are any hotels in suburbs (no too far) but close to train stations. And from that train station I can catch a train and go to Penn Station, NY city pretty quick.
I have seen a Long Island Rail road train, which connects to Long Island to NY city.
I am looking at a hotels which are nearby train stations, and from that train station I can go to Penn Station NY city within 30 minutes or so.
Let me know
Thanks in advance

Try the Woodbridge Hilton in New Jersey. It's an easy 10 minute walk to the New Jersey Transit Metropark train station, from where you can catch a train to Penn Station.
If you want somewhat cheaper, there's a Hampton Inn nearby, although you'll have to drive 10 minutes to get to the Metropark train station (parking is about $10 a day at the station).
Both are nice hotels (the Hampton Inn throws in free breakfast), in a safe suburban area. Parking is plentiful and free, and there are the usual stores and restaurants along nearby US 1.

You can try Jersey City, NJ, which is right across the Hudson River from New York City. You can take the PATH train, which is a commuter train system, simular to the LIRR, into and out of the City.
The link below will be very helpful with your information.

NYC, N.Y is made up of 5 parts 1-Brooklyn, 2- Manhattan (Harlem is in Manhattan but is often mentioned separately), 3-Queens 4- Bronx 5- Staten Island. Most are connected yet very very big. Many many trains go with in these boroughs. A ferry goes to Staten Island, then they have a bus system there.
