My husband and I wanted to stay near Manhattan without the Manhattan price. Great hotel, rooms are basic but the internet worked great so we could plan our days. Free parking which was also a plus so we could park our rental there when we were not using it. It is a 15 minute walk to the #7 line or... More

I can't give this place more than what it actually is - a two star hotel. LOCATION: First of all, in its defence it is NOT FAR from Manhattan. It's 10 minutes on the subway which is a 10 minute walk away (33rd St - Rawson St) although you have to walk through some empty factories for that. I recommend... More

I have stayed at this hotel 5/5 times that I've been to NYC in the past 7 years. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a cheap/clean/convenient location to the city. The hotel isn't fancy, but has everything that you need. I love the free parking and free wifi, and the free breakfast helps save some... More

My kids and I got here from june 10 until june 13 and the first thing I noticed is the covered Best Western sign in front. The elevator could wake up the dead. I could hardly think with the noise it's making in the lobby. The only saving grace is the free breakfast. I will think twice about coming to... More

So, I stayed at this hotel because I was going to a job-site for work and this was one of the closest hotels that was in the company's budget. I was always told "you get what you pay for" but figured "it's a name-brand, so it can't be TOO bad." Also, I've stayed at BW in Atlantic City and it... More

The motel is too distant for site seeing in Manhattan. It takes an hour regardless of the time of day. Air conditioner in room didn't adequately cool the room, and while there were two fridges, neither worked. Staff was friendly and helpful, allowing us to check in early and leave our car there a few hours after we checked out.

My husband and I booked through Priceline's "Name your own price", which was our first mistake. This is the hotel we ended up with through Priceline. Unfortunately, once booked you can't cancel. The price seemed very reasonable compare to other hotel's that we had seen, even though the reviews for this hotel were mixed, we crossed our fingers and hoped... More

The city view offers a convenient location near the hustle of Manhattan. The hotel is an older well kept building that offers a wonderful view of Manhattan. The near by subway has you into Times Square in 10 minutes. The hotel provides a shuttles to the closest subway stop. Only downer is that it stops at 10pm. Cab fare from... More
