Continental bfst was excellent, shuttle service was terrific (to the subway and to LGA), rates were reasonable (compared to others in the city!), and area was quiet - nice restaurant down the street for lunch before heading to the airport, and very picturesque cemetary across the street! If you are lucky enough to get a 'view' room, you can see... More

This could be a great hotel for the price and location IF they put more attention into cleanliness. The room was large, the bed comfortable, but the bathroom was nothing short of filthy. I had to buy bathroom cleaner and spray the walls, tub and shower doors before I would even think of putting my body in it. The ledge... More

It was a mistake to book this hotel but next time I`ll be wiser. Staff was rude and not helpful at all. Breakfast was a joke for anyone from (northern) Europe. Rooms were dirty and cold and the neighbourghood was scary.. Location was difficult for someone who wants to spend days in Manhattan.

We checked in and checked out. There were several people lounging around in the front lobby that did nothing for the reputation of the hotel and we felt terribly uneasy. The room was not ready, the decor was tacky and it was a shock given the AAA rating and the Best Western affiliation. I wish I'd read the reviews more... More

Shuttle arrived at airport within 10-15 minutes of call; easily accessible; clean rooms with small refrigerator; comfy beds & hot water; continental breakfast included eggs cooked to order. Great Irish pub a couple doors down! Shuttle driver friendly and great source for nearby restaurants. 24 hour shuttle service anywhere within a 2 mile radius. Shuttle to subway very easy. Have...

We checked in around 5 p.m. and apparently all the other rooms were already taken. We had three people in ONE double bed. However, after calling the front desk, they brought up a rollaway within a few minutes. We are not the type to care much about room space, but it would definitely be too cramped for others. Front desk... More

On 4/9/06 we stayed at the Best Western City View Inn. The web site was very deceiving, as it stated: Only 2 miles from midtown Manhattan, the Best Western City View Inn is a wonderful spot for your next stay in New York City. Rooms at the Best Western City View Inn include air-conditioning, in-room movies, and exercise bikes. What... More

I espected much more from a Best Western hotel! A couple of years ago I spent a few days in a BW in Instanbul: it was a high standard hotel, with very good confort and services. I don't want to say that the Motor Inn is awful at all. The hotel staff was kind, the breakfast was good, the shuttle... More

This hotel is relatively clean and the breakfast is actually quite good as far as continental breakfasts go. It offers a shuttle service to and from the airport and the subway station. The subway ride will take roughly 10-15min into the city. Its a great way to go to NYC without paying the big manhattan prices. You can simply buy... More

After reading the other reviews, I really expected more from this hotel. From the start, there were problems. It's very hard to get through to the front desk, especially around 1:00 when people are checking out. We were waiting at the subway stop, trying to call just to get directions to walk to the hotel, but we could not get... More
