“Freaky from the outside; fine on the inside”
Reviewed November 10, 2006

When I arrived at this hotel, it was a bit foreboding from the outside. The neighborhood is dicey and the building is attached to a gas station. There is a police precinct right there, so the presence of a dozen police cars is both reassuring and unnerving.
BUT, when I got in my room I was very happy. We were put in the back, which was quiet. The size of the room is small, but not tiny. The furniture, TV, king bed and bathroom are all brand new and very nice. Granite countertops in the bathroom.There are three chairs in the room, which is great. They give shampoo and moisturizer, which I did not expect in a budget motel. The parking is inside under the building and given the heavy police presence I was not worried in the least about security.
The room turned out to be quiet. By the way, there is no elevator. Only stairs. We ordered pizza from a local place and then saw the delivery guy again every time we went back to the lobby, so it is a popular option. I would not recommend walking in the neighborhood.

A relatively new hotel. Very difficult for us to find, but of course, we were from out of town. Hotel can be seen from Exit 7 off Major Deegan Expressway (north of Yankee Stadium).
Rooms were clean and of adequate size. Nice TV and beds.
Continental breakfast consisted of rock hard mini-bagels, mini-muffins, and assorted small pastries. OJ, Apple juice, and coffee. Skip it. Did not see any restaurants nearby.
Right beside a police precinct. Indoor parking (Free).
A bit Overpriced, but only a mile from Yankee Stadium

  • Liked — Proximity to Yankee Stadium
  • Disliked — Finding the place
  • Tips/Secrets — Not too bad if you can get a good rate.

A medical emergency while driving through the Bronx forced us to find a hotel for the night and boy did we luck out with this one! It is located beneath Yankee Stadium and right next to a police station. Tons of police and vehicles are all around the hotel, which has FREE, well-lit, covered parking right at the hotel entrance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. (It is 2 floors and I don't think they have an elevator, so check about that before going.) The hotel just opened a few months ago and is immaculate. The rooms are beautifully appointed with a huge TV, free cable, refrigerator and free internet wireless which was a lifesaver. A/C worked great. Bed was VERY comfortable. Sheets nice and soft, as were the towels. Bathroom was great - shower hot and lots of pressure. Nice granite counters and slate floors. Vending with snacks, drinks and ice available. Free continental breakfast is included. We paid $109 just walking in off the street, but you can get some internet deals. Since it's only a short subway ride to Manhattan, I will keep this one in mind as a base for NYC visits. Although the area is a little intimidating, there really is a lot of parks and things to see and do in the Bronx (Zoo, Botanical Gardens, baseball game, parks, historic sites, beach, etc) itself and has some interesting views of the Harlem River and Bridges. I have a new found respect for the Bronx!
