This hotel is located 5 minutes from the subway, making it easy to get around. The cleanliness and modern look of the rooms is very good for the rating of the hotel. Only downside is the price - however all of NY is like this so you don't have an option. Lady in front desk was very helpful and professional.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The hotel was really clean, cleanest hotel I've been in that wasn't an arm and a leg and your first born which was great. Staff were friendly. Elevator went out one night we were there but it was fixed promptly by the next morning. It's about 2 blocks from the subway which is close but the area is questionable. While I didn't feel 'unsafe' I didn't exactly feel 'safe' either. It's not a neighborhood you dilly dally in...you go to the hotel you sleep, you go directly to the subway into the city and at night when you get back you go directly home.

One reviewer mentioned drug dealers and homeless people everywhere, this I did not see. Our first night (after 1am) walking to the hotel we passed a small park where a couple were sitting and chatting. Saw some men hanging out in the park during the day. The neighborhood is more industrial where the hotel is--so it's more deserted at night than anything else. I was with my husband so felt fine walking to and from the hotel even at late hours, but I know I would probably be uncomfortable at night if I were staying there alone.

The hotel is a good value though, friendly staff, close to subway about 30 min from the city.

Room Tip: Fairly quiet in rooms as long as you make sure your window is closed.

The cleanliness of the bathrooms is about the best thing that stands out in my mind. The place is great if you are on a tight budget, but the location is not very desirable.
The other reviews about the neighborhood are not entirely true, but hold some merit.
My wife and I returned to the hotel every night after 10pm, sometimes after 1am and let's just say it was a very brisk walk back as you don't feel safe. We did see cops around the area and there were no bums in the small park at all and of the nights or mornings we were there.
I would not let my wife stay at this motel alone given the walk from the subway to the motel.

The staff working the front were nice and helpful, some more than others.
