Had another WONDERFUL stay at the Hotel Carter in NYC!!!! Each and every time I stay there, the manager and staff never fail to out-do themselves with their great hospitality and service! If you want to get in on NYC's best kept secret, book a room at the Hotel Carter. The spacious rooms are clean, and comfortable, PLUS you get... More

My two friends and I stayed at Hotel Carter from October 16th-October 20th. Upon arrival, it wasn't so bad. We didn't have high standards when we booked the room, really just looking for a place to crash after long days of sightseeing. That was all it was really good for to us. Some good things: Price, Location, maybe one or... More

This was my second time staying at this hotel and it really hard to find much fault with it when you look at the price you're paying. It's located right in the heart of midtown, a minutes walk from Time Square. The hotel itself is old and worn looking, carpets a little worn, the furniture in the rooms is very... More

Let's face it, if you come to Times Square it is to see as much as you can and sleep as little as possible. The Hotel is old but it had all the basics needed. When I booked the room, it said it was going to have a double bed but it had a King which was a nice surprise!... More

We stayed in the hotel for two nights. Carpets were really dirty. Bags with trash everywhere. No water pressure at all. When we opened the closet for first time, trash bags were there and it looked that it had been there for a while. They didn't even clean the room from one day to the other, they did not make... More

I prepared myself for the worst, thank gawd because the hotel is pretty bad. Bring shoes for the shower & prepare for a long shower with no water pressure. Room 1501 at least had a view (kinda) & flat screen tv (but cc wouldn't turn off & volume surged) It's all about LOCATION with this hotel, if you avoid the... More

I was worried. I read the reviews and saw pictures but the price and location were so intriguing, I went with it. New York is expensive. So fun but everything costs money. So I decided to stay in a bit of a cheaper hotel and have money for other things. The lobby could be helped a little. Make it more... More

I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. During the stay, an item of clothing went missing ( presumably with the bed sheets when they were being changed) which was also confirmed by the staff on duty in reception when it was reported that day. I was assured that they would retrieve it from the laundrette and it would be... More
