My friend and I stayed here for 10 nights and loved it. Perfect location, staff were friendly, felt very safe. Room was very clean. I think we may have had a renovated room because everything was lovely. The bathroom is small and outdated but all we needed it for was to shower so didn't need to be fancy. The only... More

This hotel is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be! My 2 friends and I stayed here for 5 days to tour New York City and the location was amazing. Times Square, restaurants, bars and the theatre district (even central park) are all within walking distance. The rooms are satisfactory and great for sleeping so if... More

Carter Hotel was a decent place to stay. It was clean and comfortable even though it was a bit older. I felt safe at the hotel and you could not beat the location. If you are a student travelling on a budget, this is a good place to stay.

Very good location, close to subway station. 1 Min walk to Time Square. Room is very old. Creepy elevator. Room cleaning once every 2 days, that's include your new towels. Blanket with smell. Old air conditioner system. Cleanliness are from average to below average. I found a lot of hairs at shower room. You get what you pay for ;)
