Ok it's near the airport. Yay. The desk clerk did not know the answer to the basic question about whether we could park on this side of the street. The only bed cover is a thin blanket. The bath towel had hair woven through it. Disgusting. The curtains cannot be closed, so it doesn't feel private enough with just the... More

We only stayed there 2 nights over the weekend since it was one of the cheapest hotels we found in the New York area. First of all, the parking lot is tiny and we ended up parking on top of the sidewalk right next to the entrance but at least we had one. The room was ok but a bit... More

I smelled smoke in the lobby. I asked about it and was told that the hotel was smoke free. So I asked to see a room before our party paid for the room. We were shown a clean room. When we went back downstairs, we were given the keys to two different rooms next door to each other. When I... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel for one week. The hotel is conveniently located near the subway, which was great. The hotel was very quiet. Check in was efficient and the lobby area was very clean at all times. The room was very dated, but not all that clean. Housekeeping staff were very congenial, but these people need... More

I stayed here a night with my sister based on the review online which is saying the hotel location is near to the subway and 10-15 mins drive to JFK as the next day we had early morning flight to Chicago! Honestly, I don't recommend to stay here unless you are going to travel with group of friends or family.... More

I should have stayed at the airport. Apparently, 2 1/2 stars in NY is not the same as 2 1/2 stars elsewhere. Dirty. Walked in the room air conditioning was shut off and window opened about 2 inches. This wouldn't have been a issue if the room was pretty much on the ground level. Toiletry bottles were half full. WIFI... More
