This past December me and the wife stayed at this hotel for the 2nd year in a row. The reason why we picked this hotel was because of the free airport shuttle as well as the shuttle takes you back and forth from the Subway station at all times. Well I guess in the last year the owners changed and...

I've stayed here a couple of times when visiting Manhattan. For about $100 less than you'd spend in the city, you get a clean, secure hotel room in a decent part of town and it's only a 20-30 minute subway ride to get into town. In the past they had a 24-hour FREE shuttle from the hotel to the 40th...

I called before I booked at this hotel and was assured it was pet-friendly. When I arrived, they informed me that I could not stay there with my dog. The man at the front desk then yelled at me for about 10 minutes, refused to give me a refund (even though I could not and did not stay the night...

We arrived at the hotel @ 7 am after a 15 hour flight from India. Check in is at 3 pm, but the very kind reception got us into a room by 9 am (at no additional cost). They even advised that we could wait in the breakfast room, and to help ourselves to coffee/breakfast. Breakfast was very good, with...

We stayed at this hotel from Sept 16-18 (2 Nights). When we arrived at the hotel we were told by the front staff that our room was available however when we went to the room cleaning staff were still inside so we had to wait in the hall. The bed was comfortable. The bathtub in the room was dirty (hair...

I chose the hotel due to the free parking and cost, which was a tad high (US129) but acceptable since it was the long labor day weekend. Service seemed cold when I arrived early (busy day maybe?), but improved tremendously after lunch when I was allowed to check in early and got a room change to a twin double room...

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...

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.
