“One advantage is not enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

I spent almost one week in this hostel, as a word hotel does not fit hear at all, in June 2013. We were on our honeymoon trip with my husband. I must admit, that the location of the facility is great, but this is the only thing, which is advantageous. Rooms are small and noisy, bathrooms are shared (!). The air conditioning in our room was so loud, that when we started it, we could not hear our thoughts. Room service is OK, but the floor of the room was never clean and one of the bath tubs was stuffed for three days, before anyone fixed it. My overall opinion about this place is poor, it is my worst “hotel” experience ever.

Room Tip: There is no such thing, as a good room in this facility. Choose the one with the quiet AC, if you ma...

Americana Inn is in a great location on 38th street and Ave. of the Americas, it is easy to walk to shopping in Manhattan and to Times Square. Subway is close. The hotel is very basic, not fancy at all, just simple beds and sink and mirrow, with a small t.v. But you are in New York, You don't need that room for anything other than sleep.
The maid service was good, bathrooms were clean (not in the room, but it worked out fine), staff is friendly, place seems safe.

Found the Americana Inn in Priceline, goid price, if going in May or after during the summer, bring a fan, as there us ni A/C or ceiling fan, shared bathrooms are very clean.
They are walking dustance away from Broadway, Empire State Building etc, subway , taxi or bus for the rest.

After booking the hotel i read the reviews and got scared.
How ever on arrival it seems like the place is in the final stages of a paint job and a bit of an over haul. Yes the amenities are very basic and yes you do share a bathroom but everything is fresh and clean. I had a single room which was very small with a sink and small flat screen tv but comeon your in the centre of manhatten you only need somewhere to sleep not spend time in. And for the price this is a bargain. Pretemanger next door for your healthy dinning options and i was able to pick up there free wifi in the room. Dont be scared this is a rare one.

Thas's all this place has. Small rooms, worn out beds, half broken venetian blinds, just one towel per person, noisy, no private bathroom, no internet, staff unfriendly. The only plus is its location in the heart of Manhattan. If this is not the last hotel available, shop for something else.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, ask for a room away from the street. The noise is unbearable.

The review on Tripadvisor really help. Since I have a small budget and I did not expect much from the hotel, honestly, I was prepared for the small room and shared bath room, as it is stated in the hotel description. The hotel though is very old but thanks to the room chamber maids, they are cleaned in the afternoon and evening, to avoid the congestion in using the bathroom, please avoid the rush hours.

Due to the room chamber maids are not on 24 hours, so the toilets could be messy after the morning peak hours.

The services levels for the chamber maids and the housekeeping man are good but no the front desk person, he was so unfriendly, I think he worked with his mood, and response to the person he likes.
