Stayed here for the Zac Brown Band concert at Forest Hills. As a Priority Club member I was given a fifth floor room which was nice & comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly & even let me check in early. They called us a cab service which was very fast & friendly. Just used the hotel as a... More

I booked this hotel online via booking.com, and only ever having stayed at the JFK area a few times before, I was hesitant to stay at a different hotel. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I finally made it to the hotel after a long delayed flight from Toronto. The shuttle was on time at the airport, and it... More

We checked in around 10:30PM. The staff at the desk could not have been nicer or more helpful. The next morning we tried to take the shuttle to the airport. We had a lot of luggage, so even though we were first in line, when the shuttle arrived the other folks pushed past us and we missed it. When I... More

We booked because this was a Holiday Inn Express, but it was no where near the quality we expected. You have to take one elevator down to the breakfast area to get to the other elevators that go to the rooms. There were only two, and one was broken. We waited forever for the one remaining elevator; it turns out... More

Having read some of the negative reviews, I was ready for anything. What I realize is that some people stay here by necessity (flight cancellation) so they are not in a good mood. So the fact that the staff here is SO courteous and friendly is impressive, since they have to deal with some pretty angry people. I'm a Platinum... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times and I will use again and again. I'd say this is an average holiday inn express. Pros: - it's clean - it's a stone throw away from the airport - it's got free and ample parking facilities - staff is friendly and welcoming - free wi-fi - good and prompt problem solving (I... More

The stated policy on their website is to hold your room until check out time after your first night. Sounds great right? Well our flight was delayed due to rain and they canceled our reservation without notice excuse we were late. So we arrived to find ourselves without a room (and they were fully booked). I guess if you know... More

Front staff was very friendly, courteous and accommodating. It appears as though the rooms were recently updated, so they are very clean and beds super comfortable. Breakfast is so-so, but it does the trick. If you have to overnight near JFK, I would recommend as prices are reasonable, they offer free on-time shuttle service, rooms are spotless, and the staff...

It's a good option, if you have a long connection and wants to rest somewhere nice and cozy. Good rooms with comfortable beds. They have a transfer every 30min and the location it's like 5min away from the airport. Good service. Staff treated me nicely. Nothing to complain. Oh, and they have free wi fi as well.

We spent the night here on a recent trip back from Europe since it is close to JFK and they run a free airport shuttle.
