I don't totally disagree with other reviewers of this hotel. It is definitely an older hotel that needs a face lift. We have stayed here 3 years in a row when my husband and I come up for a race he does at Citi Field. It's close enough for a 5 minute bus ride. Every year I research other hotels nearby or even in the city and we just keep coming back to this one. Basically, you get what you pay for is how I see it. This is by far the cheapest and closest hotel to the airport. For us, we'd rather not spend the extra money sine we are really not in the room much at all. We spend all day in Manhattan, and just come back to sleep so why pay more? The bus stops are within walking distance (M60) so we hopped on that to get to the subway for Manhattan. You can also catch the bus at the airport. They do have a free shuttle to and from the airport so that's nice. It's so close we actually walked though.
I found the front desk clerks to be very friendly and helpful. They have a free breakfast but it is pretty lame. Coffee, tea, juice, cereal, bagels, muffins. There is no restaurant for dinner. Our room was decent enough. Clean. Comfy bed. Small bathroom. Hot water.The tv is old school. I don't think you could even buy that kind of tv anymore! Reception wasn't great and not a lot of channels available, but again, we were never really in the room so it didn't matter. Decent size. A/C & heat worked fine (we used both). Like I said, the whole hotel needs to be updated. I heard it was bought out and a new management was starting an upgrade, but I did not see any evidence of this. I think we paid $129/nt, which was probably even too much considering what you get. I didn't see a lot of other guests so hopefully business will pick up more if they do an overhaul. I would still stay there again for the convenience/price.
