Location is perfect!! But I would like to pay a little more for a clean room, clean A/C and a clean bath tub. The room was a mess. The mattresses are cheap. May be I will book again for a solo business trip but never with my family.

The hotel is a good option for low-budget trips. If you are expecting to receive a 5 stars quality, do not stay in this hotel. This hotel is good for its location. It is near Times Square. It is affordable and a quiet place to rest in the night, but not be be away the good night life of the... More

My Partner and i stayed here from 6th May 2014 to 12th May 2014, the location of this hotel is what sold it for us, located just a 30 second walk away from time square this was everything we were looking for, although the hotel had a few small defect such as bits of plaster missing off the walls in...

The location could've been any better, walk distance to Times Square...the hote itself is OK, for one night! The downside of it (for someone with kids) there is a gentleman's club(cheetah)annexed to the hotel lobby, which is very uncomfortable! The room and the bathroom are very small, but it's clean, you get what you paid for I guess!

I've been to NYC before and know how expensive it is so when we found this at $150 Aussie a night we though why not. Very basic but that's all we needed. Less than two minutes and your staring at the bright lights of Times Square. Yes the staff are average (one male receptionist was lovely but the rest weren't)... More

The hotel itself is a two-star but it has an incredible location and is about half the price of other hotels in the area. It's a place to sleep and not much else. We were here for new years eve and it was safe, convenient, clean and warm. The staff aren't as bad as they say in some of the... More

We stayed here for a week in October 2014 and new from previous reviews that it could possibly be the worst hotel ever but from the moment we stepped out the taxi we loved it. We were helped with our bags up the stairs and then greeted by the hotel staff who were polite and friendly. Yes the hotel looks... More

This place is not real pretty, however for the price we aren't complaining. We were actually expecting worse going from the reviews on here. If you are chasing somewhere cheap that is centrally located, this place may suit. Don't be expecting any bells and whistles though, for us it was fine because we were out all day and only using...

You get what you pay for remember that. But even though the price was on the cheaper side the location (right near all the broadway plays, Times Square, and Rockafella center) this is where u want to be. The rooms are nothing special but like I mentioned before if all u need is a place to rest your head and... More

Hotel Carter is a solid no-nonsense hotel which offers an excellent location & a great value to those on a budget. The staff were helpful and efficient. The rooms were neat and orderly. For the money one could not expect more. Job well done.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
