This place was a dive!The room was dirty, cigarette ashes all over the bathroom! The room smelled awful! They showed us a second room but it was the same and the beds were slanted! We tried to call you to cancel the room but I had given the paperwork at checkin and they did not give it back. When I... More

Oh lord, where to begin? Every bad review here is true. This place is (by far) the WORST place my wife and I have ever stayed. We stayed here because it was walking distance from a performance we were attending. I could tell at check in that it was going to be bad. The smell in the lobby alone was... More

OMG- Stay AWAY--this place is horrendous. It must be some kind of welfare hotel throwback to the 1970's 42nd street. It appears that drug deals and prostitution are going on. Characters are walking back and forth all night. A woman banged on our door after midnight yelling "let me in, it's me". We were stuck there due to Hurricane Irene... More

I'm generally not fussy about motel rooms but clean is a MUST!! Room #38 was an absolute disgrace. If I hadn't paid $173 in FULL at the time of booking I would have RUN out of there. We only stayed one night because we were attending a wedding in the area. I don't know where the rooms are that are... More

Can't complain. It was what you'd expect for the money. The pros are it is walking distance from a strip mall and the ferry. Plus you can catch the bus if you want to get into the city. For a few nights it was fine. Like the person below me said, it can get kind of noisy outside but for... More

Very ordinary, small room - pretty much what you would expect for this chain. The motel is located between a garden apartment complex and a strip mall, but it was fairly quiet at night except for some idiot who banged loudly on the door of one of the nearby rooms. Definitely not a place that I'd want to plan a... More

Please do not stay here. We live in NYC and was heading to long island for our friend's bbq. At the last minute, we decided to stay overnight so we could head to Robert Moses Beach in Long Island. This place had a room. Ok, its Econolodge so we didnt expect anything fancy and we were ok with that. However,... More
