3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Hotel Carter is a budget hotel right in Times Square. This was the second time we stayed there, and it is okay for just crashing there one night after a day in the city. Check in was quick and easy, the room was small, but about average for NYC. We had four adults in the room and it wasn’t... More

We (a 3-generation family) stayed for several days and were pleasantly surprised after some of the reviews we had read. The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms very clean. The hotel is literally a block from Times Square and close to public transportation stations. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the young Moroccan man at the night desk. The... More

The location of this "hotel" is amazing - turn right out the front door and you're in Time Square almost immediately. But this hotel is not for the weak stomach - trash in the halls, dirty rooms, dirty bathrooms, bizarre noises coming from other rooms, etc. I wanted to go out in NYC for the night - got this room...

Please please don't stay here. There are so many other hotels in New York. Find somewhere else - anywhere else!! The first room we were offered had water literally pouring on to the bed. The second room whilst dryer wasn't much better. There was mould across the bathroom and cockroaches in the hall. The first night we stayed here I... More

This is a well-located hotel; the lobby looks like a good hotel but the rooms... are horrible! The room was little, there were two beds with old sheets. We spent two nights, nobody came to make the room. Can you imagine that?

This was my second time staying at the Hotel Carter. My 1st time was approx. 30 years ago when I made a trip with my Mother. I remember then it was a great price hotel for being near Times Square and it still is. The only negative thing I remember from long ago was the ½ block walk on 43rd... More

Great value on hotel, $149 per night., but parking for my SUV was $55 per night almost next door to hotel. No ice,coffee maker,microwave, and no refrigerator. Small room big dresser takes up a lot of space You have to pay for wifi, per device to use in your room.

Hands down, the grossest hotel I've ever stayed at. The halls smell disgusting, the carpets look like they've never been washed, all of the furniture in the room was broken and there wasn't even a place to hang the toilet paper in the bathroom and the floor looked too sketchy. The only good thing about this hotel was the fact... More
