I think I have stayed here 7 times in a year. My mother lives a block and a half away but as an adult and her apt not accommodating for guests, I couldn't ask for a better location. Everyone at the desk is polite and answers emails promptly.
I only gave it a 4 for cleanliness tho have never had a "dirty" room because it is old and the rooms small so I find myself wondering how they can even clean the carpet well. It must be difficult to vacuum under the bed etc. But I have never felt the room is dirty. Bathrooms have been upgraded, walls painted and sheets are always clean.
I really hope they don't upgrade it too much or the affordability will go out the window! After all if you are coming to NYC to see the city, eat and shop, who wants to spend all their money on a room?
The single rooms all face the back. Suites face the street (80th street) and doubles face the front, Riverside Park. I have been in all. I think a suite is too small for 4 people as they are trundle beds to accommodate 4 but when traveling to NYC on a budget you have to have an open mind. Ac works fine and higher floors will have less noise (as will the singles that face inward and away from the street).
It's close to the 1/2/3 trains at 79th and 72nd streets and a mere 2 blocks walk gets you to Broadway.
I'll continue to stay here as long as it remains affordable!!
