I stayed at this hotel and the location is the only good thing in this hotel. The room was awful: the bed, the bathroom and the closet was totally old. The elevator is to slow and it takes too long to go up or down (specially at the check out time). They didn't do the cleaning of the room. They... More

If you want to be in the heart of manhattan on a budget and dont mind about no niceities then this is for you. No breakfast, no free wifi and drab rooms in need of decoration. However bed was comfortable and big and shower adequate and clean. We had a back room so was reasonably quiet. Housekeeping is every other... More

I stayed here with my husband for the 4th of july. And I was scared for all the bad reviews of this hotel. But no! The hotel was really clean, clean bed, clean bathroom. The basic needs were fullfill. And one of the most important, near Timesquare. Obviously you wouldn't find luxury or nicely place like staying in a Hilton... More

This is by far the absolutely Worst hotel I have stayed in ALL my life. I beg the reader to stay away from it or run, run to another place. Hotel Carter is a dated, smelly rundown. It is a shame to the tourist industry that this joint gets away with such blatant violations just because is walking distance to... More

This hotel is in a great location..at a great price. But this place is very tired and needs some TLC. I have low standards and have stayed in some bad places...this is one of them. I had fun and slept well while I was in New York...so I should not complain.

So to clarify from the start, if you are after luxury and high end comforts, this is NOT the place for you. The hotel Carter is a 1.5 star hotel. If you are however after a cheap hotel where you will only come to rest your head, with a great location (right on time square) and that is extremely well... More

I stayed at the Carter Hotel during September 2014 on a room only basis. This hotel is situated in Central Manhattan, just a two minute taxi ride from Pennsylvania station, my point of arrival. I was checked in by a friendly and helpful receptionist and allocated a room on the seventeenth floor. The room had a comfortable double bed, a... More

My husband and myself spent three nights in Hotel Carter. Yes the hotel is worn and could do with updating however our room was scrupulously clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. There was a problem with the bathroom light which was sorted by a very efficient maintenance man within 10 minutes. The hotel is extremely good... More
