The Best Western was not our first choice-- we had actually booked a room for 2 nights at the Red Roof Inn through Priceline, but a mistake was made and they sold our room to someone else. The front desk at RRI re-booked us (a party of 4) at the Best Western. When we arrived, we were first given a... More

There is a reason there are not more pics of this property. When the taxi pulled up I thought it was a mistake. It's a decaying Victorian building right across from Greenwood Cemetery that bears no trace of it's original use inside. It is in a dead zone between many major highways, no shops or food with in a few... More

City View is a great place to stay. If you are coming to NYC to sightsee it is perfect. The subway will get you to Manhattan in minutes. If you are driving to NYC it is especially good because you can park on their property go to NYC and not have to worry about tickets etc. Good value.

My room was so small. Lots of wasted space. I was given a rate over the phone and when I arrived they charged me 30 dollars more. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Towels were good and shower was nice. The only problem I had was the staff and the fact my rate changed when I got there.

This hotel is in a good location. It has an old-fashioned look of a stately hotel However, the rooms are a disappointment. The furniture is old, the mattress is uncomfortable, the atmosphere is dismal. The bathroom was not properly cleaned. The elevator broke down - however, it was fixed in good timing. I wish that this hotel was updated. It... More

You have to cross the river to reach Manhattan but the rate us half of what a comparable hotel there would be. Located in a former school, the changeover to a hotel must have happened many decades ago, and the public areas are quite neglected, with the ancient elevator taking forever between the five floors. Rooms however were clean and... More

No hot water (beyond their control?), peeling wall paper, ancient sandpaper like blanket, minimum of rough and thin towels, filthy coffee maker, dingy looking room and mismatched/broken furniture. Industrial location across from graveyard but parking lot was ok. Cheapest Best Western in NYC for a reason. Go at your own risk.

The elevator smelled of marijuana, the toilet tank and trash cans were very dirty, the bath tub stopper appeared to have black mold, the room had not been vacuumed . . . I cannot believe that the Best Western insignia is anywhere related to this hotel.

The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. I got there too early to check in, but I was invited to leave my bags in a storage closet, so I could move about easily, and even invited into the dining room to eat breakfast, even though I wasn't officially a guest there yet. In fact, the gentleman at the desk... More

the location is perfect if you want to stay outside Manhattan. The "inn" itself is really relaxed and the people working there are friendly and outgoing. Breakfast is always free. Some rooms are rooms where smoking is allowed. We had one of those as non-smokers - not the greatest but hey it worked. we had a room facing the city... More
