The good: comfy beds, clean sheets, clean bathrooms, refrigerator in room, free breakfast (no proteins, though) and free hourly shuttle to/from JFK (12 min in no traffic). Burger King next door. The bad: front-desk staff is rude, but manager is nice; hotel is on high-traffic road, so kind of loud; walls are very thin, with some stains on carpets. Can’t give more than 3 stars.

Rather than spending 23 hours in JFK we opted to get a room for the night. Five Towns was one of the least expensive with hotel pickup. Check in was quick. Our check in person was kind enough to extend our exit by two hours. Super clean, friendly staff. A pretty good breakfast buffet. I’d stay there again.

After sitting 13 hours in JFK on our way to Iceland, my friend and I swore we were NOT doing that again upon our return. I booked us into 5 Towns based primarily upon its proximity to the airport and that it offered a shuttle. We were pleasantly surprised to find a really comfortable and accommodating retreat. Upon learning that our flight was not leaving for the west coast until 4:30 p.m. the next day, the manager extended our check-out time to 1:00 p.m. Everything was spotless, the beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfast had a bit more variety than the usual hotel fare. This place is already in my contacts for future stops.

To clarify, if you're looking for a luxury 5 Star hotel. This isn't it. My 5 stars is for the experience, convenience to JFK, and what the hotel offers. I had a crappy morning at the airport and had booked this hotel only an 1.5 hours before arriving. Let's begin-this is one of the more cheaper hotels I found near JFK. Like many, their free airport shuttle had won me over. Good thing I had called because the 3rd party website doesn't say where the shuttle picks you up. (Well, they do provide it but they send it to your email once you book it) Don't know why, I thought it was run every half hour automatically. But it makes sense because it saves gas. (Duh) The front desk answered and (is it just me or do I find sarcasm in NYers charming?) Anyway, you have to request for pickup. For Terminal 5 they pick you up at Door 8 on the outside curb. Super convenient! When we got to the hotel it was such a nice surprise! The lobby was decorated, they have more than enough seats for customers to wait around. They also offer complimentary pound cake, cookies, chocolates, hot n cold beverages. And in the AM bagels, toast, muffins, and fruits! The hotel also has a snack and drink vending machine, coin laundry, a few books laid out for bookworms (spotted a Dan Brown), one PC in the lobby (print your boarding pass for👏 free👏!!! Useful, especially if the app for your airline is down 🙄) We got there at around 10:30 and understandablely they couldn't check us in. No luggage storage tho. But we got lucky, we waited in the lobby for an hour maybe? And, the guy at the front desk said there was a room ready! The room was pretty clean for this type of hotel. They offer plenty of channels on a flat screen, closet w/ iron AND ironing board, a (big) mini fridge, toiletries (shamp, cond, bar soap chicklets, even mouthwash!) I didn't catch any names of hotel staff because I was so impressed with Five Towns Inn the moment I got there! Front desk, housekeeping, and shuttle drivers were all very nice to us! I can see how it caters to biz travellers but also a very comfy place for an overnight stay. We stayed less than 24 hours. But, thank you so much for making our day better!!
