I stayed at this Days Inn the first weekend in June '08. I came to New York to go to the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park.
It is a no frills type of place but this hotel provided just what I needed. A safe, secure, clean place to sleep.
The area felt safe to me. I took a little walk down the road. It appeared to me that the hotel is located in a small business type area.
There were fast food places about a half mile down the road in either direction. I'm not really into lounges so I didn't check out the one attached to the hotel.
They have a pool. I didn't use it, but it looked okay to me. Nothing special, but nothing bad either. The people in the room next to us had kids and they used the pool. They seemed to enjoy it.
The continental breakfast left a little to be desired. The donuts looked unappealing to me. I was expecting a better variety of pastries and stuff. All they had out were some tired looking donuts. I did see some dry cereal containers and oatmeal. All I really wanted was a cup of coffee so I was o.k. with the lack of food. A danish might have been nice, but no big deal.
The only ice machine is in the lobby. A little inconvenient.
I found the desk help friendly and helpfull. I had no issues with them.
The room itself was pretty standard. I didn't find it too small (goodness knows I've been in smaller). I didn't use the hotel pillows as I ALWAYS bring my own from home. I also bring extra blankets.
The bathroom was fine. Decent water pressure in the shower. I'm big on the water pressure thing. I hate taking a shower and the water pressure is so dreadfull that I can't get the shampoo rinsed out of my hair. I thought the tile in the shower was actually very pretty.
Plenty of free parking available. Also free internet service.
All and all I had no complaints. If there is ever another Triple Crown on the line and I return to New York I would have no problem staying at this Days Inn again.
Please exucse the messy room in the photos. I forgot to take pictures until after we had spread out in the room, and all our stuff was scattered about.
