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...

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.

This was a last minute booking for us and we were looking for cheap motels to stay for 2 nights in NYC. We had to change our room because the bed was too small and they accommodated us pretty quickly which was nice. Location wise, It is across the cemetery so it's kind of spooky at night but it didn't...

Warning... You will need a few minutes to read this post! My family and I checked in on the evening of Christmas and were told that the one room with double beds was not available. We were given two rooms with one being "no charge". While offering the second room was a nice gesture, we were never told why our...

I got the hotel from Priceline - Name Your Own Price and had been very nervous seeing all the negative comments. Hence, I tried to smile more and say many "thank you" to the receptionist who checked us in; and fortunately she gave us a spacious, clean room with everything working well (including bathroom) on level 2. The corridor and...

We booked this hotel during our trip to NYC during the Christmas eve. Due to last minute planing we had to settle with this hotel even though there were a few negative reviews.The free parking service was a huge advantage for us since parking lots were highly expensive because of the Christmas eve. The staffs are very cordial and friendly....

We were in NYC for a weekend to see the Christmas Lights and we stayed in City View Inn. Overall our experience was very pleasant. The cemetery across the street was not a deal breaker for us. They offer free breakfast ( which has everything you need), free parking, free shuttle to the train station (once a day per room),...

I booked to stay in the City VIew Inn via Booking.com during the Halloween period. I picked the non-refundable option i.e. if I cancel I lose my money and was informed on booking that by providing my card details my booking was guaranteed. 24 hours before I was due to fly out Booking.com inform me that the hotel cannot honour...

Room stank of smoke on arrival, other guests were shouting and generally being intimidating, overall quality of stay wasn't pleasant. Thankfully the room itself was clean and spacious. Free taxi shuttle to and from the closest metro station was a nice touch, but it was also necessary as the hotel is so far from anything - even yellow cab drivers...

The reviews for this hotel were all one extreme to the other; half saying it was absolutely fine and the other half advising people not to stay there. Luckily, after taking the gamble we experienced the former! Although the walk to the hotel was long and through an industrial neighbourhood (I would highly recommend taking a taxi from the subway/airport...
