My family and friends and I stayed at this hotel before and after our cruise trip. We were just looking for some place affordable and comfortable, the hotel seemed decent considering the lower price in comparison to other hotels located a short distance from Manhattan. My first stay there before I left for my trip was pleasant, however the guy with glasses at front desk was quite rude. We had requested to change to non-smoking rooms when discovering that we had mistakenly booked smoking rooms. He was hesitant to change the rooms stating that he was unable to make the switch, and later finally changed our rooms after we explained that our kids could not stay in those rooms with a thick scent of smoke. This hotel was great considering the low price, and we were thinking that we would definitely considering coming back to this hotel next time we were in visiting New York. However, after my second stay after my trip, both of the rooms that my friends and my family stayed in last week, were infested with bed bugs. All of us woke up with red spots lined up on our bodies. We scoured the beds and found multiple bugs in the bed sheets. We cleaned every corner of our luggages, clothing, bags, etc. because we were afraid of letting those critters into our home as soon as we got home.
