My husband and I just returned from a 3 night - 4 day visit to the Big Apple. Our stay at the Best Western City Inn View was very pleasant. I had read the reviews ahead of time and was not disappointed by anything we experienced there - the hotel is old, the elevator is slow, the breakfast was adequate... More

I was a little a little unsure when I bookd this hotel.......when we pulled into the parking lot my wife was less than excited. It is a very old girls school house but once you go inside you see very modern and tastefully decorated lobby. The front desk help was friendly and professional. Sometimes you have to wait for the...

Just OK. Clean, quiet. Not new. Cheap mattress - if another person moves, you will jump. Hard pillow - neck hurts in the morning. Location - you don't want to walk around: noisy, unpleasant area. Breakfast is OK - standard.

I chose this hotel because of the affordable price that also included breakfast and had a jacuzzi in the room. Upon my arrival the lady at the reception was very grumpy and could not be bothered with anything. At the same time there were some works being done on the elevators so the rooms could only be reached by staircase.... More

We are presently staying at this property. We are so very pleased with their service that I thought I should write a review Immediately. Except the location ( they make up for this by providing FREE pickup and drop once a day to the nearest Metro station ), I cant think of any shortfalls with this hotel. The staff (... More

Maybe this hotel was recently renovated, but I had one of the cleanest rooms I have experienced in this area. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom spotless. Very good accomodations for the $$ in NY city area.

We were stranded in New York during the recent volcanic ash fiasco and ended up in the City View Inn. We were a party of 7 in two rooms for one week. What could have been a very unpleasant stay turned out to be much more pleasant mostly due to the treatment we received at the City View Inn. The... More

I have been to this hotel several times in the last three years, because they pick you up at the Laguardia Airport and take you back, take and pick you at the Metro station and had a hot breakfast. Now the hotel has no van, got rid of the drivers while we were there and try to make you walk... More
