A good place with adequate facilities. Decent Breakfast Good size double room. Quiet side of the building. About a mile from the closest MTA station. Hotel was full and they offer van service to the MTA station or LaGuardia. Problem only one 6 passanger van (Dodge Caravan size) Created a problem in getting to the station to go in town... More

What a fabulous hotel for the value minded traveller! Although a little different than most Best Westerns (property used to be a girls school, older building), this hotel has so many positives that I have difficulty reading some of the other posted reviews. Rooms were quite comfortable, clean and well furnished. The manager, Mohammed (spelling?) was very welcoming and had... More

We were very pleased with the hotel. A shuttle picked us up from the airport. It took awhile but the traffic was bad plus the rain had caused some problems. The room was nice. and big not like some we had looked into earlier. We were very surprised when we went down to breakfast the next morning. We were led... More

Needed a place near the Steiner Studios at the Brooklyn Navy Yard for Barry Manilow PBS taping. Did some research and saw that this one was 5 miles away and La Guardia was around 7 miles away. Took a chance but was nervous because of the great price...$138. Free shuttle to and from the airport. Called the hotel from airport... More

We were looking for an affordable NYC hotel for the U.S. Open. Had very low expectations of this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. It's an old school (the "Girls" entrance is still visible). Yes, the carpet is worn and the furniture a bit run down. But the bed was comfortable (the mattress was pretty new). The continental breakfast was MUCH... More

Well... this was our first time in NYC and thought that this hotel would have been a great find. However it was not. We had booked for 6 nights. Shuttle picked us up from the airport. The shuttle was a beat up rusted old van. We checked into the 5th floor. It was a little shocking. The layout of the... More

First, the hotel looked fine when we got in and the shuttle was good IF it picked you up. The hotel room was ok, but we found a comment card that wasn't collected and it said how dirty and disgusting our room was, and when we looked closer it was still kind of gross. The drain in the tub didn't... More

One of the hotel's sides faces an old cemetery, the other - had a view on midtown Manhattan (out third floor had it). There is free wireless Internet, free parking and a... More

We stayed over New Years '06-07. Hotel is a ways out from Manhatten, but like my fellow reviewers said, the free shuttle will drive you, or pick you up in about 15 minutes. If you choose to walk, it will take you about 15 minutes. The room was quite large with comfortable beds, a large television, personal exercise bike, updated... More
