We've stayed here a few times only because the price is right and it's in a great location - a short walk to Grand Central. The employees are very rude/the service is slow but I have gotten used to it and just understand that you get what you pay for. The bathrooms are fairly clean. The rooms are dark and... More

Stayed there recently month for the eighth time, and, once again, got exactly what I bargained for. I have a hard time reading "terrible" reviews for this place. Wake up, folks! You're paying ridiculously low rates for a place in the heart of Manhattan!! I've always found it clean and never had a problem with anything. Yeah, they aren't great... More

We were very disappointed in this place. We stayed for 2 nights during the winter and we had to have the window air conditioner on because they could not adjust the heat which blasted. They used a flat sheet for the bottom which was too small and could not be tucked into the sides. Therefore, when you moved during the... More

I took my family on their first trip to New York City. My wife and I have been many times together and separately, and realized that the cost for regular hotel rooms for a family of five would average $400-$600 per night. The Soldiers Sailors Marine Club has family rooms for up to six people. We spent $175 per night,... More

I knew that the hotel was not going to be nice and that the rooms were affordable. However, it was much worse than I anticipated. The lady at the front desk was extremely rude when we got there, she barely looked at us and seemed annoyed. There are no elevators, so you have to go up flights of stairs to... More

We have been around, in the U.S. and in Europe and we've stayed in many military lodging facilities, but this takes the cake. It is poorly kept up (i.e.: duct tape on the air conditioner attempting to hold it in the window), an air conditioner that doesn't blow out cool air. It also it is need of a good cleaning.... More

It was my first time in New York City and I have to say that staying at this place could not have been a better experience. The room was sparse, but I was only staying there to sleep. The rooms, bathrooms, and showers were immaculate. I really have nothing but good things to say about my stay at the Soldier,... More

This hotel is a good value if you're just looking for a place to crash. It is not fancy by any stretch of the imagination, but decent. It is available only to military folks and the living conditions are dorm-like. You are sharing a room with strangers (unless you are lucky to have enough people in your party to get... More

Totally cool place to stay! The old building is nearly 100 years old and is open to members of military, or public service (ie firemen, policemen), reserves, retired, etc. A real gem - tons of character & charm with all the old military pix on the walls, architecture, etc. We were two couples - Gunny & Me, my daughter &...

This hotel is for military and their families, as well as police and firefighters. The rooms are substantially cheaper then other hotels in NYC. The rate per person and it is based on rank and age. This hotel does not have an elevator and the family rooms are on the fourth floor. Our family room had six twin beds in... More
