We stayed for 5 nights (April 2014). Although the room wasn't very big, it was clean, comfortable, had air conditioning, coffee making facilities and had a powerful shower.
We were on the 8th floor and did not experience any road noise, which was good.
The bathroom was very clean, but did have a urine smell coming from somewhere in there. We did not have a safety deposit box and though they were willing to move us next day to a room which did, by the time we'd unpacked, we decided to stay put and used our lockable suitcase as our 'safe'.
We paid $58 (set taxi fare) from JFK Airport to the hotel (don't forget you have to add 15% tip). When you arrive at JKF, they advise you to use only use yellow registered taxi's. When we were leaving the Best Western hotel, the doorman recommended the hotel's at $60 - only an extra $2 + tip again, but if money is tight at the end of your holiday, be ready for this suggestion. We didn't like to say no and paid the extra.
Overall, very satisfied.
