The place is a good one to stay for business. Curteous staff, ride to subway and fair price for NY standard. However, you may experience cigarette or marijuana smell in the hallways that may comes into the room at times. The hotel is not new, but they have worked on it to keep it up. The elevator is an old... More

The hotel is clean and the staffers do their job. I was pleased with what I got for the price I paid. After 10PM you have to pay $10 for a ride to the train station. Taxi to LGA is $25 and you get there in 15min or less without traffic

Stay was good for myself and family! Just two suggestions, bed too soft and even though breakfast was great I would suggest some kind of breakfast meat bacon/sausage but overall stay was wonderful! If you are looking for a short stay, economical hotel by all means Best Western at City View Inn is wonderful!

The staff of a property is often what defines that property, and Bibi and her family do an INCREDIBLE job catering to the needs of guests. We made several specific requests that were honored without any trouble. We were upgraded to a room with a Jacuzzi when Bibi found out we were there to run the marathon. We were allowed... More

If you are coming to NYC for business or sight seeing, Best Western City View is a good place to stay. If you are driving to various parts of the aria for sales calls, you can park in the City View lot at the end of your day. If you are driving to NYC for sight seeing, park your car... More

The price was right, but the place was underwhelming. The outside of the building gave me hope that the old school building features would be preserved and used as a theme throughout. The moment you walk in though, you see it's just another Best Western. You wouldn't know if you were in Peoria or The Big Apple. The plexiglass-encased front... More

Our room was very clean but had quite dated decor/furniture etc. looked a bit worn out. Definitely need more working power outlets in the rooms too, or at least the one we were in. The included breakfast was very good. Some hotel staff were very helpful, others were not so much. Sometimes we would phone the hotel in the evening... More

This hotel smells like a cigarette ashtray. When I arrived the front desk clerk was standing in the doorway to the lobby smoking up a storm. The room was tattered, with one lamp without a switch, unplugged and standing like a lonely soldier. Carpet was soiled, bathroom was one step removed from awful. This did not represent my 1000 nights... More
