I stayed at Lexington Inn at JFK Airport when a line of severe thunderstorms hit NYC area making many flights cancelled. My flight was among them, and the airline couldn't book me for any other flight on the same day. On my way home from London, I was destined to be stuck in JFK. So I quickly turned to my... More

It's close to the JFK Airport and that's the main reason we booked here for a night. The room was ok. Nothing fancy. Clean. A bit worn and old. Beds were comfortable. It was ok for us compared to the price.

First, checking in was one of the most embarrassing thing that ever happen to me the person checking in did not had a clue of what he was doing. After I got my keys of my room I went to check it out by surprise I found someone else inside the bathroom taking a shower. Second, after telling the front... More

We needed a room for the night because of a late JFK to early morning LGA connection. This hotel's rate was reasonable, was between the 2 airports, and provided a bed, breakfast, and internet access. My only complaint was that the air conditioning was not particularly cold. Other than that, passable in all ways.

Hotel is dirty and smells as soon as you walk through the front door. Room was no better. Entire room smelled like mildew and mold. Bathroom was dirty and smelled like sweaty socks. Horrible experience. Would not stay here even if it was free.

This hotel is not as bad as I thought it might be from reading trip. We got it as a mystery hotel deal on a discount site and were nervous, but it was fine. Jamaica itself is tough, but I love the international diversity. There are rough edges on the hotel (phones and AC were quirky) and there was not... More

It was not a pleasant stay. Our room was dirty and you can find hair on the bed and in the bathroom. The hole at the top of the sink was covered with yellow and brown stain- disgusting! Breakfast area is very very small and there're only a few tables. Hotel is about 1 hour away from Manhattan which we... More

This is possibly one of the worst places thatwe have been at (and we have stayed in some serious dumps over the years). I will list what was wrong with it: 1) they put us in the basement where it was really noisy. The walls are paper thin and you can hear all the foot traffic and guests in the... More

Hotel wasnt the worse but attention to detail was not there.. Rooms were not cleaned well.. Dust in high to reach areas and even low areas youd expect to be clean.. Not good. Maid service was decent but laundry bag in the room was misleading since they dont do guest laundry. Nevertheless I had fun since I spent a few... More

I landed at JFK later than planned and booked this hotel as it was nearby. The neighborhood is not pleasant at night and I do not recommend walking around after 8pm. The person in the lobby is talking in very short sentences giving you the feeling that you are bothering him. Once I went into the room on the fifth... More
