This is a very nice hotel. It is old, but a great hotel. The first impression was not so good to be honest, the house looked like the home from the Adams family ha-ha, and around the hotel there was a cemetery, but don´t be scared by that. When we got in we were greeted by the fantastic friendly staff.... More

The front desk guys were very friendly and helpful. The building is older and I like the charm of it. Our room had a good view of the city and it was clean. The building itself has a bit of a smoke smell, but I know that NY doesn't have the same laws as SC and FL with indoor smoking.... More

OK, when you see the hotel rating and reviews, you know not to expect much for the bargain rate that you are paying. So, you should not be surprised at the rundown condition of the hotel, the distance from transportation and dining or be surprised when you cannot connect to the wireless network outside of the hotel lobby. However, you... More

Nice hotel. Yes, it's a little older but the staff was super friendly, and the free breakfast was great. Room was nice---it was in the 90s out whole stay but our room was nice and frosty. Our plans changed and we ended up leaving a day early, and the staff was kind enough to speak to Hotwire on our behalf... More

This is not a pleasant place to be. The price is low for a reason. Originally a school, this property has undergone several transformations. There is free parking, WiFi, and breakfast. Rooms have a fridge and microwave. But they also have broken down furniture, defunct appliances and mold. Linens are tired and stained. I can see why Best Western will... More

The staff was most helpful prior to our stay and especially at reception. We arrived early to prepare for an evening wedding and they found us a room. The bed was fine and the AC was great. The infrastructure was in need of repair/replacement. All the electrical receptacles were so loose that the plugs for my electronic devices wouldn't stay... More

While staying at City View Inn, you will surely have rich experience through:- 1) fantastic customer service from all staff members, in particular at the Reception 2) hard-to-miss breakfast (6-10am) 3) free shuttle sending you to or picking you up from a local Subway Station (but it takes you 10-15 minutes to walk there if you don't mind some exercise...

We went to this place on a very short notice, since we needed to make a trip to New York and did not want to spend too much money. The hotel feels a bit run down, but it seems that for the price this is to be expected in New York. We paid around $120/night during a long weekend, so... More

I travelled in 2014 - There is mold in the bathroom and I dont recall there being an elevator (I may be wrong on that). It was quite noisy and it smelled bad. Will not return. I stayed at another Best Western in Canada and it had mold too. I cannot believe that Best Westerns are such dumps.
