This hotel deserves the title of the durtiest hotel in the world. It was a great hotel 250 years ago, but nowadays it is a avoid -hotel. It has a great location, near times square and other important places, but it does not worthwhile.

We were so lucky to find this hotel. I found it on the AARP site and the room rate was only $117.00. We stayed 4 nights and got an additional discount! The hotel is located in the HEART of Manhattan on 43rd and 8th, right next door to the Lyric theatre. When we left the theater we walked 30 steps... More

Let's start with the positive...the list is short. The location is wonderful, walk out of the hotel lobby make a right your in the heart of Time Square, make a left and your right in the Hells Kitchen district. The staff is ok, with the exception of Christian the bell hop, he was friendly. Now for the cons.....this list can... More

my wife and I went to the the hotel knowing the reviews but the position were very tantalizing!! unfortunately hotel was absolutely horrible and every evening we were scared to come to the room. I can't believe that in one week there was no housekeeper round the floor..

I scored a pretty good price for Hotel Carter via Hotwire, and I was fully aware of its bad reputation when I made the booking. "Dirtiest hotel in America" so it was described to be. But given the price and location, I decided to give it a go (booked it for 3 out of my 8 nights in NYC). I... More

This hotel provides a bed, a bathroom and a roof. It's warm and it's dry. Considering it's only a few yards from Times Square it's good value. On the downside, it's rather faded and grubby, you have to pay to check your luggage, you have to pay for wifi and the lifts are very slow. Our door lock stopped working... More

Got a classic room,2 double beds. Old looking room, dirty carpet, dirty bathroom . Had a great view of a brick wall, was very close to times square however not worth it. Would have felt cleaner sleeping on the street, I slept on top of the sheets with my sweater as a blanket. Worst hotel ever and such a waste... More

My husband and I brought kids into ny for two days whilst visiting family in Philadelphia. The beds were comfortable enough with clean bedding. Plenty clean towels and hot water at what would be a busy time in morning so nice it didn't cut to cold. Shower had decent enough pressure too. Dated yes but for price and amazing location... More

Pros and cons of this place. Pros..it is literally a step away from Times Square and good eateries nearby. That is where it ends. The hotel needs to be demolished and a new one built. When you enter the hotel, it looks so dodgy and smells like disinfectant poured in its hallway. Carpets are worn out. Our room was okay... More
