Hotel is also a low income and/homeless shelter

Late shuttle. Front desk did not communicate about type of car/van to look for during pickup airport thus missed pickup. Lights in rooom need maintenance. Breakfast was limited and small selections. Furnitures are old. Late contracted van departing to airport.

Kind of dumpy

I want to start saying that the staff made no mistakes and no problems. They picked me up at airport, had a room for me, breakfast, and brought me back to hotel in the morning. So they met the minimal agreement. But the hotel appears quite run down. Brass and mirrors in the lobby might have been nice a long time ago. The thermostat had instructions to set to 85 (!!) if not warm enough and room got quite toasty before I noticed that. The breakfast was miserable. In New York everything is expensive, and though this price was not cheap, one should not be too choosy when getting the lowest price on the list.

Wouldn't stay here again

Pros: The room was very clean.
The price and location of this hotel was tempting - we only needed a one night stay for our flight out the next day. However, we were disappointed. Shuttle from airport was very sketchy; driver was asleep and another shuttle driver told us where to find him. Complementary breakfast was inedible.

Convenient stop over

Pros: Location and price
Cons: Greater variety at the breakfast buffet
I arrived late in the evening and the hotel van was almost full up, but the excellent driver found a way to get us all in and delivered us safely.

Great Place To Crash Before Flying

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
I stayed at the Garden Inn JFK while on layover due to bad weather, my overall stay was great the only issue I had was that the staff could be a bit more polite.

There was a problem with my room and tbd staff was quick to correct the problem

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
The staff was courteous and helpful. When my room was given to someone else they had no reservation about how to make it right and get me into a quality room. The breakfast was okay for a continental breakfast, they ran short of items that would have been an asset to eating such as butter for the waffles. Over all, I was satisfied with my stay. It made preparing for a funeral less taxing.
