“We frequently stay here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This hotel is so convenient to everything we need. It is clean and well maintained, they have all the amenities we need, including parking and the staff is very kind and helpful. We have stayed here several times when visiting our son and his family and we've always been more than satisfied. It is just across the bridge from the Bronx where they live and it is just a short walk from the train to Manhattan. It also has free parking which is somewhat of a miracle in that area!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2014

It is clean, comfortable and decent hotel for the price we pay for if you don't mind that the location is about 45 mins of train ride from downtown Manhattan but is only 2 or 3 stops from JFK Airport via Stuphin Boulevard, Archer Avenue Station (the station that directly connects to the Air Train Station from JFK). Depending on which station you used; there are 2 subway stations that can gain access to this hotel - Jamaica, Van Wyck, Queens Boulevard - 2nd stop) or Briarwood, Van Wyck Boulevard, Main Street - 3rd stop) but the latter is the nearer and easier station that the hotel would always recommend.

However, please bear in mind that even the station that is nearer is about 3 blocks away including crossing over an expressway but the roads are proper and well-lit in a pretty nice neighborhood with shops and restaurants on the main street , the road behind the hotel, despite options are limited.

Getting to downtown is pretty easy as both stations are running along E and F line that have many transfer connections along the way to get us where we want to go and both lines will bring us directly to downtown Manhattan.

The staff were friendly and helpful, especially the staff that checked me in,Gani, but the only down side was that the room that I was allocated, the toilet was used and not flushed when I checked-in. Either than the first two nights that happened to be a weekend, the corridor was noisy with the movements and conversations of other guests who were not mindful of others who might have turned-in early, the remaining nights were fine and I stayed 5 nights.

Breakfast was simple with the same options on a daily basis but I am fine with it as I am light-eater for breakfast and not forgetting the room rate I paid.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the expressway.

An excellent hotel even with a low budget. Very warm reception and noise level is close to zero such that you enjoy a good night"s sleep. It is also close to a train station, jfk airport and within a quiet neighborhood

We had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was more than helpful and the breakfast was one of the better cont. breakfast I have ever had. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in NYC. It is 2 blocks from the subway which makes it really easy to get around.

We chose the Jamaica inn for an overnight stay having arrived at JFK. Only about 6 miles from the airport the hotel has ample parking and rooms are good value for money. Worth noting that restaurants in the area are limited.

The hotel Best Western Jamaica Inn was a very good value for what we paid. We stayed 4 nights the first week of October. The room was more than comfortable, have seen far worse on my travels and we enjoyed the free breakfast. I would most certainly stay here again and will tell others to do the same. Nothing fancy but real close (2 blocks) away from subway. Neighborhood wasn't the greatest but no one bother us.

When checking in, I requested a 6:00am wake-up call (so I could catch a morning flight to Africa). Of course they forgot to call me! It was an extremely tiny room....with no place (except the bed) to open my suitcase. There was no trash can in the room or bathroom. The hot breakfast this morning did not offer eggs....not hard boiled, scrambled....nothing! No bananas either. And this is not a chep hotel!!! Terrible!
