We are so thankful that we found the Pelham Garden Motel. Every two weeks we fly in to the Bronx for treatment at the Eastchester Cancer Center. Before discovering the Pelham Garden Motel, we stayed at a national chain hotel that was more expensive--it also required reservations and a taxi ride twice a day. Now we just stroll over to the Pelham Garden Motel. It is in a very nice neighborhood less than a mile from the cancer center. It offers the additional convenience of a diner right next door that is open 24/7 and a grocery store within walking distance. We like it that Pelham Garden does not take reservations because it is large enough that they always have a room for us; in addition, we often have last minute medical emergencies and not having to cancel or change reservations gives us one less thing to worry about. The hotel managers have always been very personable and accommodating. If you are high maintenance, then this may not be the place for you. It is clean and comfortable, but the shower mats are paper and the amenities are minimalistic...to say the least. For example, the red dresser drawers are 'faux' and you only get two thin towels. If you are like us and can do without red neon lighting and mirrored ceilings, all you have to do is let the desk know when you check in. However, if you are more adventurous, we understand they even have a room with a round bed that they rent out for around $80 for three hours--the Pelham Garden Motel just may be the honeymoon destination of the Bronx!
