“Good hotel, little pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Clean and comfortable room, near JFK airport.
Nice staff at desk.
Free shuttle service from Federal Circle to hotel. Just called them and they picked us up.
Room appeared to be recently renovated. Bed was comfortable and clean. Bathroom with tub. Very clean.
Simple breakfast, but several food options. Space in breakfast room was small.
Neighborhood was little creepy.
There was a bus stop in front. Just bought a metro card in the shop next door and rode to Jamaica train station.

We missed our connection flight due to bad weather and had to stay in JFK one night at very short notice. I searched TripAdvisor very quickly and decided to go for Sleep Inn (please be careful - this is the Sleep Inn at Rockaway Blvd, NOT the one on Liberty Avenue - they are about 4 km away but lots were confused!!!).

What a good decision that was. Free 24 hour shuttle from/to airport, great service at reception, and really nice room. The room was so nice that I thought we could actually happily stay there for a few nights! It's modern and clean - while it's a bit tight, it really isn't an issue. Wifi worked perfectly.

All in all, I would highly recommend such a lovely hotel near the airport. If we ever find ourselves stuck again, I would go straight to this one for sure!

When we arrived we had an issue with getting on the shuttle for the Sleep Inn Jamaica, not the one we were booked into on Rockaway Blvd. We were less than thrilled with the original hotel or shuttle service (didn't drop of at the terminal, closed between 1-3) but quite relieved when we got to the correct hotel. That seems to be a common problem. Interestingly, a few reviews here were actually for the other hotel! The shuttle service was fabulous, ready whenever we needed it and the hotel is barely 10 minutes from the airport. The bus stopped right outside the hotel and took us to the subway which took us into Manhatten. If you are a nervous nellie you might not want to be here, it is a bit of a run down neighbourhood but we found it to be just fine for us. The breakfast was adequate, of good quality and well maintained. The room was small but spotless and well decorated. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They let us have a late check out because our plane didn't leave until late afternoon. I highly recommend this hotel, just be careful not to get on the wrong shuttle like we did. Look for the term Rockaway Blvd. on the side of the van.

Clean and still nice since pretty new. Rooms are small, but we just slept there between flights. Shuttle was perfect. Hotel arranged a ride for us into Manhattan. Car service so much better than taxi for same price. We didn't eat breakfast but some items were available.
All the hotels near JFK are pricey so this is a clean comfortable choice with reliable shuttle.

I have to say that this hotel exceeded my expectations for the price point. The hallway carpets are a bit stained, but I felt confident that my room was clean, so that's all that mattered to me. The hotel rooms are very tight space-wise, but very well decorated, comfortable, and clean. The TV is nice because it comes with tons of free movies of all genres. Also, there's a mini-fridge, and that was perfect for me as my husband and I were traveling with our toddler. The linens/towels are not perfectly white, but they are clean despite minor stains. They probably just don't bleach/get rid of worn linens as often as more highly priced chains. The staff is very nice and accomodating. When I mentioned the stained linens they promptly replaced them. The breakfast is good: waffles, hot breakfast meats and eggs, boiled eggs, muffins, danishes, toast, bagels, yogurt, oatmeal, coffee, hot chocolate, juice, and fresh fruit. It's plentiful too. The location is not very aesthetically pleasing, but I didn't feel unsafe. (I also was not out walking either, so maybe that's another reason I didn't feel unsafe.) Burger King and 7Eleven are within a safe walking distance.

Room Tip: I had a room with a view of the parking lot and surrounding neighborhood (family homes)...I'd ch...

Staff was very nice and room was comfortable but this hotel is located in a VERY unsafe neighborhood. When we arrived at the property, there was a group loitering around the property that appeared to be checking out all of the arriving guests for unsavory purposes. Some from that group actually entered the hotel while were were checking in without any protest from the staff. Unless this hotel starts providing strong security I would highly recommend staying elsewhere even if the price is higher. It would be worth the peace of mind.

I stayed over-night at Sleep Inn the night before my flight from JFK. The room was very clean and nice. It's a nice business hotel in my opinion. Free wifi connection in the rooms is a plus.
Would recommend for short stays. The neighborhood isn't so safe though at night, so won't recommend being out at night.
