I checked into this hotel during the 4th Of July Holiday in New York City. It is a good hotel to stay at in the very crowded, and busy city. Give them a try over the week-end. I was very satisfied with the quiet location. The Sleep quality of the hotel is excellent to rest after fighting with the busy... More

Room was small but OK. A/C noisy and not fixed. This can't have been a new problem. The free shuttle service can take you to the airport for dinner. Otherwise you need a car or need to go into NYC. Wish you a good trip

Great Value for Price! No extra cost to & from airport on Shuttle & AirTrain. Breakfast & Internet were included in price. Friendly, helpful staff. Just didn't care too much for look of area, NYC Dept. of Sanitation Trucks right up the road, nearby . Other than that, it was a pleasant one night stay.

You have to start by accepting that this isn't a 4-star facility, isn't a new building, isn't in the greatest of neighborhoods, and likely gets most of its customers from the convenient proximity to JFK. But given those constraints, you can see the leadership of a great manager inspiring the staff to deliver a great hospitality experience everywhere. Our room... More

Ride from Federal Circle JFK to hotel is about 10 minutes however once an hour. Rooms were good however doors need to be adjusted as other guests entering/leaving their rooms sounds like doors slamming. Wasn't good at 5am when guests were leaving. Otherwise, staff is friendly and professsional, complimentary breakfast had good choices, and overall experience was good. Not much... More

the ventilation system was extremely loud, and was blowing in very foul and moldy air making it impossible to sleep prior to long international flight. The early departure breakfast was not worth eating and unappetizing.

We ended up staying here for one night so we can fly out of JFK the following morning because they seemed to have the best prices for any decent hotels near the airport. Overall, I am very happy with our stay there. If you're staying here, you're obviously not staying at a Ritz-Carlton or anything but given we needed a... More

The hotel is sub-mediocre in just about every category, except by the appalling standards surrounding JFK. We booked here for three reasons: proximity to the airport, included hot breakfast, and available jacuzzi to relieve thrombotic pain... The room (101) was small, stank of mildew, and dark - lit only by one basement-style window. The room jacuzzi didn't work (although we... More

Needed a place to stay the night before air flight from JFK. This Best Western fit the bill! My room, tho small, was clean and comfortable; afforded me what I needed (a refrigerator and radio/alarm clock and a very comfortable King bed. Also had a jacuzzi bathtub! The breakfast, tho nothing fancy, was fine for me (selections were good) -... More

We stayed overnight at this hotel. Upon arrival, the staff were unfriendly and the elevator out of service. This was tricky as our room was on the fourth floor and we had lots of luggage. One of the staff, did, however help with the bags but it was still difficult for us. The room was not very clean and the... More
