The room was small, but comfortable-- the bed was heavenly! Nice shower, adequate breakfast, nice staff. Efficient airport shuttle.

The personnel in reception paid no attention to me when I walked in, not even a smile. The dates for my stay were wrong which I pointed out but he didn't seem to care & told me it didn't matter(?) I'm I wrong to think that s odd? The elevator was only for handicap & could not be used to... More

The Hotel is located very near JFK and has a free shuttle transportation. Otherwise it's a $15-20 cab fare from-to JFK. There's a bus which takes you to the Jamaica station to get the fast train to Manhattan, in about an hour you can be in the City from the Hotel which is really good. You can also take a... More

Hotel close to the JFK airport , near Jamaica station where Air Train stops and bring you very fast to all terminals. Rooms are OK, a little bit noisy due to train station near by. The breakfast served was realy worst. All cutlery and plates were plastic ones, and food was realy poor. We were also surprised to find that... More

This hotel is far from its description. It is a run down old grotty accommodation that is far from a hotel in our opinion. The room and particularly the bathroom smelt of dirty mop. It is outrageously priced for what you get. The only good thing was the proximity to the airport, the wifi connection was good and the free... More

The customer service here is the worst I've ever seen in any hotel. Our room feels and sounds like it's right on the freeway. In requesting a quieter different room I was told very clearly I'm sorry it's Sunday night there's nothing we can do about any of this. This was after I called them and they told me that... More

I had the unfortunate experience however , of getting a strong scent of marijuana in the bathroom in the wee hours of the morning. Of course, there is no accounting for the tastes of those occupying the neighbouring suite. We took the subway , then the Q6 bus and were comfortable with the efficiency of the front desk staff and... More

Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bed and a good night's sleep. More complete breakfast available at nearby Burger King. Caveat: Free airport shuttle is actually only available TO the airport, not FROM the airport: Port Authority does not allow hotel/motel shuttles to pick up passengers, only to drop off. If you have more than carry-on luggage, taking the air train... More
