4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Travel Inn is not a fancy hotel and does not try to be one. The rooms are basic and it has are few amenities. We liked the location, near 42nd Street, and we loved the parking-it was very reasonably-priced with no extra charge for in and out of the lot. There was a pool which looked nice but we didn't...

The first time I stayed here I knew it would be the one for me. The staff are friendly, the rooms are big enough, clean, and comfortable, and it is in a great location. Also, the rooms come with both a small frig and microwave. The staff is quick to respond with help with anything in the rooms. It is... More

Have been staying at the Travel Inn since 1998. It is a short walk to Times Square and the Theater District. It is convenient to the subway stops at the bus station and Times Square. There are multiple restaurants, grocery store, and numerous tourist attractions within a short walk. Microwave and Frig in the room. Parking on site with in/out... More

We've stayed at the Travel Inn 4 times in the last 18 months. It's a great location if you're arriving by car via the Lincoln Tunnel with easy access and on site parking (for a reasonable $20/day charge). We've stayed in the older rooms and the newly renovated ones - for an additional $20/night the newer ones are great. The... More

Perfect location. Two blocks from the Hudson river where the Circle Line starts and the Intrepid is moored and approximately four blocks from Times Square and thus easy access to Central Park, Fifth Avenue and so on. The beds are good, the rooms are clean and it has a swimmingpool: very agreeable to relax and cool off after a -... More

We had a great time at this hotel. The location is perfect! You are about a 5-7 minute walk to Times Square. We found the front desk helpful and kind. Our room was clean. The pool was even staffed with a lifeguard. The rooms were plenty spacious for 3 of us. If you are looking for something fancy, don't stay... More

This snapshot was taken today from the Travel Inn website! It says the only FREE parking in NYC! They insisted that this wasn't the case. The manager called my mother a LIAR! She said the photo could have been taken at anytime. The manager said you can go park on the street! It was some of the WORST customer service... More

We had to travel from Belgium to New-York on August 1st but unfortunately our flight was cancelled (due to maintenance aircraft) and we only travelled from August 2nd.

We were very comfortable at the Travel Inn. Great pool area. Very friendly staff and deli on site and restaurant not far from hotel. Will definitely stay at the Travel Inn again on our next visit to NYC.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
