Clean and quiet rooms. I was surprised how quiet the rooms are considering how busy the road in front of the hotel is and JFK Airport is right next door. Very friendly and courteous staff. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We were stranded at JFK during a recent snowstorm and the airlines placed us at the Five Towns Inn. We were greeted warmly and checked in within a minute. The room was clean, spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed the coffee and cakes in the lobby and the location next to a couple of restaurants made a late night dinner... More

The Five Towns offers clean, basic accommodations and friendly service close to JFK. There is always something available as a snack, but breakfast is limited to cereal, bagels, and pastry. There are several fast food outlets adjacent and better, sit-down restaurants in walking distance.

Stayed here during a class reunion. The place was really clean and and comfortable except for the plastic sheet in the mattress cover which is easily moved aside. Coffee and pastries available 24 hrs and real bagels in the morning for breakfast. The staff was welcoming and friendly.

I ended up here for one night after my flight was cancelled and the airline arranged a voucher for this hotel. After letting them know I was at the airport and needed to head their way, their van came by after a half hour or so to pick me and some other stranded folks up. It was a quick ride... More

The hotel is clean, the beds are quite comfortable, the staff is friendly and efficient. It's not fancy or luxurious, but certainly adequate. The breakfast is minimal: cereal, patry, bagels, coffee. We noticed several airline crews among the guests

Had read some negative reviews and already formed my own opinion on this property before stepping foot inside. Well, I do have to say I formed the wrong opinion. This is a nice property and I would definitely stay here again. It is a no frills place. The desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. They didnt put on a... More

Recent improvements did not include better mattresses, or better towels, furniture, etc., in the rooms. The mattresses they offer are extremely poor quality and the towels are small and barely absorbent enough to dry you off. For the price they charge, the rooms should not be an issue. The improvements were esthetics only and not comfort. The location is questionable... More

VMO9 - I am sorry we did not meet your expectations during your stay. We appreciate feedback both good and bad as it helps us improve our operation. I do wish your review would have been a little more objective: The way your review is written it sounds like we renovated the entire hotel but saved the old mattresses. It... More
