I didn't think hotels like this still existed!

Pros: Location to JFK airport and free shuttle pickup and drop off.
Cons: Redo the lobby, replace the carpets and paint the walls and give the place a good clean
Location: Looked seedy outside - I just stayed in my room until check out.
So I was expecting something low key and basic for the money I paid but not this substandard. The lobby and corridors are dirty and very tired, and the place smells. Really shabby. The room was not as bad as the lobby areas but old and tired. Fridge would not plug in as plug dodgy. On check in the two people continued to discuss other issues ignoring me initially. Breakfast was basic but acceptable, but room it was served in had dirty floors. Not nice.

For the price it was a horrible hotel

Pros: Close to the airport.
For the price of 120 dollars it was a horrible hotel. Only two towels, musty room, toilet seats had stains. Not worth it

Cons: the place needs a total makeover.
Ants in the bathroom. Broken fixtures. Toilet clogged. No blanket, only a sheet and the bedspread.

The right price close to the airport.

Pros: not much
The ride from the hotel back to the airport was one of the most frightening and uncomfortable in my life. Loud radio, overheated, too fast - at one point our driver actually backed up on a busy on ramp. I don't know when I have been so glad to get out of a vehicle. The hotel was clean enough but the sheets were not tucked in and everything squeaked. I don't think I have ever been in a hotel where they did not tuck in the lower sheet. Made me wonder whether the sheets needed to be changed several times a day. The breakfast was okay with really good pastries.

Visit to NYC

Pros: Car parking free and available inside a courtyard. Morning breakfast was OK.
Cons: If there are more rooms like the one we had - they should do a remodel. There is no comfort in a room like we had.
Location: Not located close to eating places. Most people order food to be delivered. Most guests appear to be traveling in or out of JFK. Which is close by.
After arriving in late afternoon we checked in and went to the room. No elevator. No windows to the outside in the room. Everything about the room was old and outdated except the tv. Pulled down the bed covers and found the linen to be soiled and many body hairs. I went outside to see the maid that we noticed as we got to the second floor. Called her to the room. She apologized and immediately changed the linen. Notice in the bathroom the we had only two towels. No face cloths. Next day they replaced our linen again, and provided extra towels and some face cloths. The rooms is always light - never dark because in the ceiling there is a sky light with rags around various parts of the glass. It is 5'x10'. At night the only window in the room was to an inside stairwell. The window housed the a/c unit for our room which was very noisey and at night the stairwell is brightly lighted. Consequently our room was full of light day and night. Parking was available and free. It was not conveniently located to a rail or bus service.

Cons: rude staff
The hotel refused to honor my prepaid reservation because the rate was too low and they were sold out. Stay away.
