To make matters worse my daughter and I was given 2 separate rooms 404 and 403 due to renovation. We wasn't informed of this by yourselves or... More

The most vulgar disgusting place I have ever stayed. I have stayed at some 1 star hotels/motels that were cleaner and nicer than this place. They should be 1/2 star motel at most. The only reason I would give it a half star would be location. Its within 4 blocks of NY Subway system and many fast food choices within... More

This place is a Hell Hole the dirtiest grossest place I've ever seen. They couldn't pay me to stay there. Room looked like a bad horror movie. Should be turned into health department. Don't waste your time stay away.

I've stayed in some seriously low end motels before, I am not a high maintenance person...but this place was horrible! The cigarette butts and garbage lining the stairwell up to the room were just the beginning. Room was dirty...I mean really dirty. Burn holes in the bed blanket, yellow pillowcases(supposed to be white), holes in the walls, clear tape and... More

I can tell you for a fact having worked near the area.I though since it was new it might be a nice place to take my girlfriend for the night. Boy was I wrong !!! The major clientele that frequents this place are Hookers and their Johns. Don't believe the hype!!! You'd probably be safer sleeping on a park bench... More

The bed smelled. The room was not clean at all. We booked it from priceline and the location turned out to be pretty awful within the area we selected, and creepy. The room did not have a proper lock.

“bring foot coverings.....bring your own linen, bring foot coverings for the shower....get a tetanus shot before you enter the room.....bring enough money so that if you cant get a refund, you have money to drive or pay a cab to take you to stay somewhere else!”
