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

I booked 2 rooms for 3 adults and 2 children through Hotwire. I thought it was a good deal. Big mistake. When I arrived, I inquired to make sure I had double beds as specified. The receptionist said Hotwire only books rooms with single beds, no matter how many people you specify. How are 3 people supposed to sleep on... More

I was stranded at JFK and booked this hotel. The price was very reasonable for the location. As other reviewers say, the room cleaning was less than perfect - several long hair on the blanket, the floor not well vacuumed, the bathtub not perfectly cleaned so I did not soak. The hotel was short-staffed and the front desk at night... More
