Not at all what we expected

The bed was terrible, there are communal bathrooms, and staff is not friendly or efficient. Don’t waste your money here, you can get a much better hotel for a similar price.

B&B not a Hotel

Pros: ?
Cons: Just tear it down and start over.
Location: Location good
Was not ready...Communal bathrooms, a small bed in a room so small that you need to be a contortionist to get by. Think futon, linoleum and 50's standards then you might be happy. Other than that I did survive. Did not see any bed bugs.

Great 'European style' budget hotel

Hotel is walking distance(pulling suitcase) to Penn Station(Amtrak). Short walk to Times Square. Can walk to High-Line Park. Multiple subway lines close by.

Mother Daughter Trip

Pros: The location, price, quiet and access to transportation, dining, shopping and activities.
Cons: It would be nice to have some hooks on the wall or on the back of doors to hang towels, purses etc.
Location: There is a major subway station right there, and we walked to Battery Park, Grand Central Station, Times Sq., the Empire State Building and 5th Ave.
The Americana was as represented. We loved the price, location and relative quiet. We might not have considered this hotel if we hadn't been referred by friends; it is a hidden gem. There was a sink and mirror in our room and plenty of bathroom/shower facilities on our floor. The hotel is perfect for visitors who plan to be out and about all day. Other guests were pretty quiet and respectful, and even the neighborhood was relatively quiet at night.

Hate to do this

I get rooms for last minute visit to Times Square NYE are not going to be cheap. But, there's no mention of the communal shower and bathroom "per floor"! Then as I get back from watching the Ball drop, I find out a psycho broke into the hotel and attacked the front desk help. Then attempted to break into MY room! There's a BLOOD stained hand print next to my door. After bringing this to the managers attention in the morning he tries to "help" me by cutting my fare from $300 to $150(running rates are usually $75 by the way) . After being asked why I didn't just just leave at 1am on New Years night and then my threats of a lawsuit I was finally reimbursed fully

Had better experienc s less expensive places

Pros: Location
Cons: Everything
Location: Very centrally located and easy walk to a lot of prime NYC activities
First there are NOT private bathrooms. This fact was buried in the description and would have been a non starter for me. The communal bathroom was not clean and there were not enough for the number of people using them. The room was not clean (trash on the floor, hair in a bed and in the sink). When I arrived the one desk agent continued a phone conversation for five minutes and did not acknowledge my presence. The room networked only once and had to be redone. Overall was not happy.

My Stay at Americana Inn

Pros: Its central location near Times Square
Cons: Windows to mitigate outside noise. Very difficult to sleep
I booked the hotel aware of details pertaining to facilities/amenities of the hotel, however there were several things that really made me regret my choice. First, there was renovation going on in the hotel, and specifically on my floor, with heavy noise from 9am to 6pm 2 days long. Second, construction work also caused dust and odors that my friend and I inhaled and got coughing. Third, there was acknowledgement whatsoever from the personnel regarding the unpleasant nature of noise, work and low standard of services provided to patrons or any drive to resolve it.

Typical Affordable Hotel

Pros: Affordable Midtown location (comparative to Midtown)
Cons: Free Wi-Fi
My experience at the hotel was reasonably satisfying. My only quarrel is that I paid $130 a night and did not receive free wi-fi in a building that resembled more of a college dorm than a Midtown hotel. I guess I should just count my blessings...

Location, location, location

Pros: Great location.
Cons: Warn in advance that you don't get your own bathroom. Put a chair in the room.
Location: Times Square.
For $175 (including tax), what you are getting is mid-town Manhattan location. Eas walk to Times Square, excellent subway connections, etc. What you don't get is a private bathroom. There was a full bathroom right across the hall and on a one-night stay, it served the purpose. I did not have to compete with other people for it. No chair in the room. When I asked at the desk, I was told that this was normal. But a hotel staffer heard my question and kindly delivered a chair to the room. The room and bed seemed clean and the bed was firm. Would I recommend this hotel: I HATE this question. I don't make it my business to run around recommending or not recommending. My circumstances are my circumstances. Other people have entirely different considerations. So on recommend or not recommend, I always check "no" but what I'm really saying is "abstain."
