Good points: not v expensive, room quite large, free parking, v close to subway, fairly large & comfortable bed, close to JFK, friendly staff. Bad points: bedding was old and ripped, not the best neighbourhood, no curtains/ blinds just nets, v close to freeway = noise, some lights in room + electrical sockets didn't work.

Everything is dirty and stained. The carpet, the walls, the curtains, the shower curtain, the bedding (yes the bedding), the headboard....I mean everything. The chair was broken, the lamp shade was broken, the wifi was slow, and the TV channels were fuzzy. The smoke detector had been removed, and it had a slight odor. It looks like something out of...

The hotel is about 20 mins from terminals. It´s just a basic hotel, don´t expect something more. But for one night between flights - no problem. The staff was nice and helpful. There are some fast foods around (Dunkin, MCD, Wendy´s). The room was ok, nice and big bed, bathroom was also ok. Breakfast was also basic.

I arrived after 10 pm. The hotel was easy to locate, near the local train and other public transportation. The lobby looked excellent, with double sliding doors, which helped keeping the place warm. Room seemed well equipped, with a small refrigerator, a coffee maker, a TV and an immaculate bathroom with clean towels. The bed was well done and mattress... More

Looking for a room for long layover? This one might be suitable but don't expect much. Location is okay, near to subway , easy access to JFK airprt, so many choices of restaurants (subway, mcd etc). Just do not stay more than 1d, better go to the next choice of hotel. Noisy with loud music from neighborhood, broken shower, smelly... More

My suggestion is that you not stay at this hotel. The front desk people were nice but the hallway was horrendous and the room not much better. The halls and rooms smelled. The other occupants were noisy. A broken towel rack laid on the floor. The sheets didn't even fit the bed. And the worst part was that it was... More

Wasn't expecting much. I feel as though I got what I paid for, which wasn't much either. The coffee machine wasn't cleaned out. Luckily there are bodegas and McDonald's and a Wendy's in the area so I wasn't too upset. Otherwise, the only problem I had was that the cleaning staff barely spoke English so getting an extra washcloths turned... More

When I stayed at the Lexington hotel I stayed over night. It was a peaceful quiet place. The room was nice clean, the shower was very nice and different. I especially enjoyed the heater in the bathroom that warmed the bathroom. My thanks to Mr. Kumar great hospitality. I will go again.

Ok it's near the airport. Yay. The desk clerk did not know the answer to the basic question about whether we could park on this side of the street. The only bed cover is a thin blanket. The bath towel had hair woven through it. Disgusting. The curtains cannot be closed, so it doesn't feel private enough with just the... More

We only stayed there 2 nights over the weekend since it was one of the cheapest hotels we found in the New York area. First of all, the parking lot is tiny and we ended up parking on top of the sidewalk right next to the entrance but at least we had one. The room was ok but a bit... More
