Price wise , you have savings. We found the rooms to be very worn and outdated. The bed linen was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was kept clean. There is no doubt the Hotel needs some upgrades. The area is in an industrial location. It is very close to New York for access which is about 15 minutes.


The staff was courteous. The continental breakfast was fresh and decent.

Gotta walk up a crazy hill to get to mass transit. Front desk does not give a crap about you. Room mildewy. Do not go here unless nothing else is available.

Cheap, very bad motel. Rooms are small, bit dirty, noisy, located near the bussy highway. Breakfast is served in foam cups/ plates. Only factory croissants, bagels and cupcakes. All bad. Sometimes banana. Overcrowded hot space. Bathroom is very basic, but ok. The location really sucks and is only to reach by taxi. The shuttle service at 0915, 1015 and 1100 hours is ok and costst 5 dollars, return 11 dollars at 8, 9, 10 and 11 hours at the red lobster near 41 street. Let's say that in the bus and hotel you'll meet the worlds lower class people, wich can be quite entertaining !
A normal taxi costs 56 dollars to Manhattan, due to tolls. I checked this with many cab drivers. You can also take one of many ferries, like weehawken or at 39 streetcin manhattan. Taxi to newark is about 47 dollars. But near the port authorities at 41 street busses go every 15 minutes to newark at 16 dollars per person. You can store your bags at 37 355 w street between 8 and 9 avenue for about 20 dollars for a day.

So: the hotel and staff suck. But it's cheap. Use the shuttle service.

dirty rooms, staff unhelpful - there are much better places to stay and if you can afford to pay just a bit more than this rock bottom hotel on a busy street in the industrial part of town with indifferent and unhelpful staff it would be well worth the extra cost.....

Its average in terms of amenities. We stayed there because the parking was free and it was close to most attractions in New York. Most hotels in NY charge a lot for parking and this one offered free parking.
