My friend and I were storm stayed overnight at JFK airport and called to book this room from the airport. The free shuttle picked us up and we checked in right away. The hotel is a little shabby but clean and the price was right! Breakfast was simple, toast, apples, oranges and muffins. The coffee was decent and juice as... More

We stayed here three nights during a snowstorm because our flight was canceled twice to Puerto Rico. The room had a broken chair and a light without a bulb. The bathroom light went out on the last night. We had to get new sheets and extra towels the first night because one bed had dirty sheets. The staff was friendly... More

The hotel was very seedy. Myself and my grandson were bitten by bed bugs. Not a place I would return to. This hotel is near to the airport but is not suitable for children. The staff did their job but we're not welcoming, but that was no doubt because it was used for all kinds of clientele. Beds were not... More

I decided to stay here to be close to JFK for an early morning flight. That worked well as even though T7 was the last drop the 0645 shuttle from the hotel got me to the Terminal by 0715. Downside is that it's not ideal to get to by public transport. I took an all stations E train from 53rd... More

An employee named Tiffany really helped me out a lot in my stay over there! She was courteous and very helpful. The shuttle we got only picks you up from jfk! Which we originally didn't know but luckily once we got a taxi there the shuttle didn't take too long. The room door looked a little loose on the hinges... More

We pop in and out of NY 2-3 times a year and Howard Johnson has been our favorite go to spot so far...friendly,courteous staff, clean comfortable rooms,and the location is just perfect for us. Near enough and far enough for everything else we do in the city, be it business,pleasure or pausing from the hustle of NYC.

First, let me apologize for the inconvenience you experienced as a guest of our hotel. Our shuttle runs from 5am to 10:45PM. We are only allowed to pick up the guest at the FEDERAL CIRCLE. The guest needs to call from FEDERAL CIRCLE for pick up as Port Authority do not allow us to wait at the FEDERAL CIRCLE. We... More

Thank you for taking time to write your concerns during your last stay with our hotel. The guest needs to take AIR TRAIN to FEDERAL CIRCLE. Call us from the free hotel shuttle phone for pick up. We can only pick up guest from the FEDERAL CIRCLE and not from the terminals. All windows are double paned. More

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, BUT the dilapidated shuttle, lack of elevator, and below-ground room were less than appealing. The screaming and shouting in the hallways (accompanied by foul language) left a bad taste in my mouth. It is hard to see the good points when (for the first time), I wasn't sure I was safe... More
