“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This hotel, which is just being rebranded into River Inn, exceeded our expectation in everything!
Reception staff is very helpful and quick in dealing with issues; rooms are spacious, clean and quiet; breakfast is buffet style and food offered is delicious!
The bus to NY is across the street and the neighborhood is very quiet and safe. There is a huge Walmart at the end of the road and several restaurants nearby.
I will definitely return to this place next time I'm in NY and I thank all the staff for making our stay really enjoyable.

Great location. Walked across street to use computer since it was inoperational for guests at this time. Needed to access for an emergency business problem. Clerk called ahead for us to use at the Hilton across the street. No courtesy vans at this hotel, had to walk to amenities, but not too far even though I had foot problems.

My sincere apologies about your experience, while we were in transition from Hampton to the New Brand. Those seven days were quite unique to us and the guest, we had many obstacles in the transfer. I can see from your review that you still said" Nice Stay" I am humbled by that. Please come again, we will make sure all your needs are met to your satisfaction. Once more I am sorry for the difficulties you faced.

Hotel was very nice and the staff was friendly. I had an issue with the TV not working and they wanted to send a cable signal thru to get it to work, which it did not. After checking it out myself, found the TV in cable had been disconnected and fell behind the wall unit. Alittle struggle to move out, but was able to reconnect the cable and the TV worked fine.

This was a clean quiet place to stay while we visited NYC for 3 days and nights. It's location is very convenient. It was a 2 minute walk to the bus stop and an easy 15-20 minute bus ride from there to NYC. Also within easy walking distance was a small outdoor mall with shops, restaurants and a movie theater.
Overall the staff were friendly and helpful, though 3 stops at the front desk for one extra pillow yielded no results.
Free breakfast was pretty good: fresh fruit and pastries, cereal and waffles, coffee, juices and milk. All tasted great, a super value.
Would have rated the place a 5, but the lack of a pool and the fact that they couldn't find us one pillow kept it a 4.

This hotel is looking a bit tired, bed was comfortable, but the hotel itself needs a refresh, breakfast was also very basic. The fitness suite was disappointing and showed its age alone in saying that horseplay was not allowed in its rules.

This hotel is well maintained.Had a nice room with a decent view. Staff was knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions about the area. Restaurants and stores were within easy walking of the hotel. They were ALL chain stores. The staff was able to recommend a local restaurant that I opted for. There is an express bus 320 to Times Square (20 min). I will try this option the next time I am in the area.

Thank you for staying with us and expressing your satisfaction with 5 stars. The hotel location is ideal for the New York traveler or the business traveler. Express bus to Times Square, walking distance to about 15 restaurants and all this is in a nice quiet are. Thank you for staying at this Hampton Inn, this hotel will rename itself on October 15th as “The Inn at Harmon Meadows”, same great staff, same excellent service only with a brand new name. Thank you and come again

Very clean and nice hotel with easy bus access into NYC. Also, if looking for a local bar Try Charlies Corner not far from the hotel. Very good food and people. nice safe place. Hampton hotels are consistantly nice and take CLC for business travel.

I am happy to hear that you took a side trip to Charlie’s Corner, great little local bar.
