Hotel is good for a quick stay loved the location very close to the subway . room was clean but extremely small What I hated the most is that our room was on the first floor right next to the lobby i felt like we had no privacy !!! On top of that I heard everything breakfast starts at 6:30 so therefor I heard that cause guess what breakfast lobby was right next to our room so I heard ppl talking and the elevator bell all morning !!!

Hotel good - Location terrible

I booked this hotel as it shows near the airport (within 15 minutes). However, the location is extremely scary. It is not in a great part of town. The picture of the hotel with lack of surroundings tricks you into thinking it is okay. The hotel was pretty good. The parking lot was well lit, which was great considering the area. This location is not somewhere I would've booked had I known. Definitely creepy. Room was clean. The bathroom could be a bit cleaner but was okay. Beds were fine. As I said, the hotel itself was okay, but the location was not.

Best deal for New York Trip

Staff was nice, room was clean. Shuttle takes you to the airport and the subway stop. It was my daughter and I first trip to New York to see the sights and this place was great.

clean cheap and comfortable,.

the hotel was clean. the receptionist was very friendly. the breakfast was plentiful and hot. beds are comfortable but the rooms are a bit stuffy. you will want to crack a window or run the ac. access to the trains and other transports are fairly close. all in all i would reccommend for the average person who does not want the big swanky hotel and just wants what they are paying for just outside of manhattan.

cheaper but not worth it

Stayed here on a family trip. I am not going to mince words here. This place - although it does have several good points like easy parking and a good breakfeast - is basically a dump. The one person servicing the front was very unfriendly. They put us (incl. 2 small kids) next to a group who was partying. The walls are really thin so the noise was quite loud. The room was small, had no view (particularly not a ""City View""), had handicapped equipment which should have been removed for us, and the bathroom was not particularly clean. My wife and I noticed that there were several women hanging around and sitting in the lobby during the evening. She mentioned that they are ""working girls"". This is probably correct but they also could have been vacationers waiting to go to the city. Anyway, the location is not great, on a desolate street across from a cemetary, and we did not feel safe there. This place is completely unsuitalbe for a family - actually do not know who it would be suitable for. I would not stay here again, even if for real cheap...

great value for the money.

me and my family had a great time in nyc. shuttle drivers introduced us to the fast lane and fast pace of nyc. open our eyes to life in the big city. shuttle drivers were very friendly at pick up and answered all of or questions about locations of pickups and what to see and what to do. front dest was just as friendly answered all of questions at check in and when we called operators later at night. rooms were clean and kepted up. hotel staff and housekeeper were always smiling. breakfast was very filling. we were almost the first ones down to eat breatfast and everything was ready for the taking. we picked this hotel for the price and the location, if we stayed closer to times square we would have spent * but we used this money to wander all over nyc. if you pick this hotel say hello from the family from texas to all of the staff and mostly to the shuttle drivers. GO TEXAS RANGERS.
