I usually don't write reviews but felt that people should know about the poor quality of the hotel. I thought I found a great deal online and based on the reviews, I expected to find clean rooms. I found hairs and a few small bugs on the bed which made me wonder if they even replaced the sheets. The towels... More

Not hardly a 5 star resort, but it was convenient (and cheap)while we were passing thru NJ earlier this month. Is the property old?-Sure. We were looking for a place only to sleep that was close to our destination (the Caldwells). The Rockaway was a perfect fit. The room was clean, the staff was accommodating. We were looking for a...

This hotel is undergoing renovation. Among those that would need change are the pillows and beds to make sleep more comfortable. The carpet of the corridors also need immediate change, as the bulges are tripping hazards and can cause falls, especially to seniors. The rooms are kept clean, though there is a smell of cigarette smoke in the corridors, although... More

I made reservations for the Best Western Rockaway Hotel on Hotels.com. I wound up driving right past this hotel, missing it entirely. The blue sign reads "The Rockaway Hotel". There is noting about it being a Best Western. I saw later in the room that a few thing said Best Western. The hotel is a little rundown and could use... More

While I was a bit concerned that this location is no longer Best Western associated, everything was perfect for my needs. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean, warm, comfortable, and affordable.

I booked my (accessible) room after checking TripAdvisor for the website with the best rate. The hotel is now independent and no longer part of the Best Western chain. No big loss. The staff was very nice on the phone and accommodated my request for early check-in. They were just as nice in person. The outside renovation is almost completely... More

We stayed here on a bus tour of New York. The hotel was 'meh'.... not overly good but not the worst hotel I've stayed in. Here are the pros and cons... Cons: There were stains on the carpet and valance about the curtains.( looked like dried blood). The toilet was broken and my husband fixed it twice. The clogger for... More

Lots of weird things about this hotel. First, I found this hotel on the BW website, but for the first time ever the website said that the hotel does not accept online bookings and I had to call. Weird. Also cost me 1000 bonus points because I couldn't use the new iPhone app to book it. Called and talked to... More
