“Great Location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The hotel location is brilliant and I guess that is what you are paying for. Staff are very helpful. Room was so small we were unable to walk round the bed, no sound insulation so it is like sleeping in the street. Breakfast was fine but served in the lobby with one table and chairs and two sofas which are so filthy they need a health warning on them, difficult to even take it to your room as you only have one chair. One lift which is very slow. Wouldn't stay here again

Stayed at this hotel for one night on 10/24. I stay in a lot of Manhattan hotels in this price range and this one is right up there. Great staff at the front desk, clean public areas, nice crisp white linens, and a clean bathroom. Pair that with a great central location, free bottled water and a nice TV selection and I'm a happy traveler.

Nice neighborhood, FREE BFAST, 7 minute walk to Time Square and very AFFORDABLE! My first impression after checking in then taking the elevator to our room was the SMELL..............it was CLEAN in the hallways!!! We stayed in Room 416; clean, clean and clean!! The room was small with a queen size bed, good for two people; but you don't go to NYC to stay in your room. The guest agent that we encountered (Trinita Meade) was AWESOME!!!!! She answered all our questions, provided us with directions, etc.; she went out of her way to welcome us and to make sure our stay was a good one. I took my daughter to see Taylor Swift at Good Morning America, she ended up camping outside for a good spot; she was exhausted and while helping me pack she made the mistake of taking a coverlet from the bottom of the bed with the blanket we brought and one that I purchased! OMG when I found it that night; I called the next day and spoke to Trinita and told her that I would mail it back to them on Friday as I didn't want to be charged for it; she was so nice and said not a problem just send it back. I am sooooooooooooooo going to stay at this hotel the next time we head back to NYC.

My wife and I go to New York about once a year to see a Broadway Show and spend lots of money. This was our fourth time staying at the Econo Lodge Times Square. Always very clean, with a wonderful staff. Rooms are small (but...you don't go to NYC to stay in your room!). Can't beat the location - 1 block from Times Square, easy walking distance to a multitude of subway lines, shops and restaurants. Rates are less than half the cost of a hotel just one block away.

Stayed four nights at this hotel and was so pleased with every aspect of our visit. Location, price, cleanliness and especially the the front desk employees. Natasha and Trinita were extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the Econo Lodge.

Jim and I had a wonderful time in NYC and certainly the comfort and service that Econo Lodge provided made this first part of our trip fabulous. The breakfasts were very healthy and delicious. Trinita and her colleagues provided excellent service--above and beyond the call of duty. Always a smile from all the staff. This hotel is meant for people who enjoy comfort and down to earth pleasures.

The location of this hotel was perfect! Travelling as a single female, I felt safe no matter what time of day or night. The price included a continental breakfast that was not extensive, but quite sufficient. The breakfast was held in the reception/lobby area and not conducive, but they’ve done their best. The staff was at all times attentive, charming and helpful. The hotel and rooms were spotlessly clean - always a very important factor. When in New York you don't spend much time in your room so it being very small was not an issue for me. The street noise levels were quite high. For those light sleepers I'd suggest earplugs. :-) I found the Econo Lodge Times Square a welcome haven after a hectic day's sightseeing and walking. Lovely! Thank you all. You are stars!
