Staff at check in was stellar although process was slow! Lobby area tight and with few seats :( Great airport shuttle, timely and efficient with pleasant driver... Breakfast could be improved with better cereal selections. Corner room with Jacuzzi was awesome,although sure used a lot of my reward points to stay there. Convenient overall.

My stay was pleasant. My room was clean and smelled soooo good. I have stayed in other hotels in the area and I think this one is my favorite thus far. Staff was very nice and the breakfast was not bad at all. No complaints for me.

Located very near airport in a somewhat "sketchy" industrial neighborhood, but with good access to surrounding roadways. Rooms were small, but updated and VERY clean. good parking in back. The real treasure at this hotel was ALL the staff we encountered from 3 desk agents, housekeeping staff and 2 shuttle van drivers.Staff was very friendly, professional and efficient. We would...

This particular Best Western was a pleasant surprise. One of the cheapest options for being so close to JFK, the service at the front desk was super friendly and very accommodative. (Thanks Lewis, Avinash and Kenneth!). They accommodated my needs to have refrigerator and were really prompt in their response. Its close to the airport and clean, well-furnished hotel. Looking...

This is a nice clean remodeled place to stay extremely close to the airport. I had a 10 hr layover and wanted to clean up and rest my eyes somewhere close, this place was perfect. They run multiple complementary shuttles so your wait time is almost none. Very friendly staff will get you in a room very fast. Complementary breakfast... More

This was just the place we were looking for after coming in on a late flight from LA. We stayed one night before moving to our bed and breakfast in Brooklyn and stayed here - exactly what wanted. The room was small but it had a clean bathroom and a good bath. Comfortable bed. Staff were very good and while... More

The room was small but it met my needs. The mattress was firm but comfortable. I stayed one night near the airport for an early am flight - things worked out well. The front desk staff was efficient and helpful, both on the phone and in person. FYI - the airport shuttle does run 24 hours but...it only runs once/hour,... More

Staff and room and breakfast all good. Great place for a stop over if you are flying out of Kennedy Airport. Not much to do in area. Be sure to book early, because booking the day of will cost you 30-50 dollars more. But I recommend it and will stay there again, if flying out of JFK.

I am glad you were able to take advantage of our free shuttle service! It is true that the restaurants within walking distance are probably not worth walking to! We do have several great options for delivery that are above and beyond just pizza! You can get fantastic Italian, Indian, Chinese, or almost any other kind of food you can... More

I booked this hotel because we expected a terrible snowstorm on 2/13 and had to fly out of JFK in the PM. Not expecting much from a JFK A/P Hotel, we checked in, got our room and felt well cared for, especially since we got a deal with them for airport parking, close by. The room was clean and warm...
