Five Towns Inn is a typical US-style motel located just 15mins drive away from JFK airport. It is a perfect place for a relax before your flight. Rooms are clean and well maintained. A light breakfast (coffee, juice, cereal and bagels) is served in the lobby next to reception. There are a few restaurants and fastfoods around, however the nearest... More

After a very long night, American Air sent my family from EWR to this hotel after another hotel they booked for us was full upon arrival. After a VERY long afternoon/night of negotiating our arrangements with AA, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to check in to this hotel with our AA voucher. The clerk pressed a... More

Delta delayed our flight by 12 hours and sent us to this hotel. First and foremost the hotel was not safe. A member of their staff use empty rooms to watch TV. The first room's sink was clogged. The second room's bathroom had prior guest hair on the shower stall and to top it off someone walked into our groom... More

I am sorry for the issues you experienced with your sink and during your stay. As you indicated in your review you had switched rooms. I believe the person that knocked on your door was there to fix the maintenance issue you described with the sink but went to the wrong room. I completely understand how unsettling this could be...

We took this hotel because it promises 24/7 shuttle from JFK, and we had a late evening flight to JFK from SF. The promised shuttle never arrived, although we called the hotel 3 times and the front desk said the shuttle is "on its way" The already late evening flight was delayed, so we found ourselves waiting outside for 90...

I am sorry for the issues you experienced with your airport pick up. Due to the high levels of airport security in JFK – our vans are unable to stop and wait inside the terminal for any length of time - unless we see our guests. Once we are forced to leave the terminal by security we have to circle... More

The staff here were great. The room itself was clean and adequate, nothing extravagant. The location was convenient for access to the tow where I was doing business (Hewlett, about two miles away). Good access to JFK. Don't expect anything great and you won't be disappointed.

Spent one night with family (wife, I, 4(!) kids). Clean room, bathroom. We judge rooms based on how tight it is to fit a queen air bed. This one was quite tough :-) But doable. The area is obviously near a major airport - so you can hear landings and take offs around the clock. Being next to shuls and... More
