Not only did we receive a decent rate on our 2 rooms, this hotel offered a shuttle service service to and from the airport (we flew into JFK), and they even dropped us off at the wedding hall we were attending. They would have sent the shuttle to pick us up if needed as well, but we had friends bring... More

I just return after spending the weekend. I have stayed here before and it was ok. The price this time was no way worth the stay. If you want a bed to crash in then fine, but to charge 250 a night it was not worth it and I will start looking at other hotels in the area on my... More

Thank you for your email. We always value feedback especially from return guests. Our rates do change throughout the course of the year depending on the season. In this particular case – the Belmont Stakes Triple Crowne was taking place less than 20 minutes from our hotel. As such all of the hotels in our area where priced higher than... More

Our room was smallish but very clean, beds were acceptable. Location is good, close to a good shopping area and 10 minutes away from the very cute town of Cedarhurst which has lots of restaurants, I recommend the Sunflower Cafe. The continental BF was fine and they have snacks and beverages all day long. The staff was friendly, I had... More

Very nice room, two big very comfortable twin beds, large modern updated bathroom, lots of electrical outlets for devices. Other guests are mostly airline crew so its safe and professional. Nice staff, near many restaurants and shopping.

First, the four stars (above) is for the value. All else considered it would be a 3 star. We stayed here because we had an early morning flight from Kennedy. How early? Too early, early enough that we needed to catch a ride to the airport at 5 am. So here’s the good news, they had a free airport shuttle... More

Firstly this is not a hotel, and it is what it is an inn, once you accept this your expectations will be fine. PROs Close to the airport, easy access to shopping within walking distance (10min). Easy access to food IHop, Applebees, Burger king etc. Note I did not say healthy food, so food for thought :-). This one is... More

I stay at the five towns inn frequently every year. Great staff and very clean. Given I work over nights I love the fact that they have 24 hour housekeeping so the room is cleaned daily while I am at work. Limited breakfast but fresh bagels, delicious muffins, and amazing cream cheese danish. Fridge in the rooms, community microwave, laundry... More

We stayed here for almost 2 weeks on business and loved it. It was walking distance to our job which was great. They have amazingly friendly staff. Free breakfast and snacks/ pastries and drinks throughout the day. Ample parking and a nice outdoor patio area to spend time out side. The offer free shuttle and local gym membership. 5★

We went to this hotel after the house we rented didn't meet our expectations. I went up to the reception and asked if they had two rooms available, and would the rate be. She gave me a rate that was over $40 from the listed price online, and when I mentioned it, she said in a rude answer that "I... More
