“A real surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Arrived very late. Processed immediately. Although not friendly they were efficient. When we asked about food they immediately gave us a selection of take away menus.

Our room was great. Very modern in design, clean, and comfortable. A good place to put your head down for the night. The shuttle to the airport in the morning was good.

Its worth noting that we got a taxi from Jamaica Station. Be aware as you come out that there are unlicenced operators touting for your business. For the record it cost $10 for the ride, the licenced cabbie was helpful too!

Now about that take-away. We chose indian. Wow the curry was great by the best standards. Fresh spices and herbs had obviously been used.

Note: the area is run down but if you are just there for the night and going to the airport then it really is not an issue.

I stayed at Sleep Inn , after JFK Inn refused to accommodate me and my friends (even though we had a reservation- claimed they were overbooked )
Not having much of a choice , we decided to contact Sleep Inn to ask for last minute rooms and we received a big yes and a surprisingly low price ($129 per double room) considering the fact that it was last minute reservation
It was arranged by phone and the shuttle came and picked us up from Federal circle.
The rooms were spotlessly clean , cozy , very modern and full of amenities.
We received a room with 2 queen beds, a large bathroom and a huge plasma T.V
People at the front desk were extremely kind ,made our overnight stay there so relaxing.
Breakfast was a surprise as well .
Although the shuttle bus drives from and to the airport , one of the staff members was kind enough to arrange and give us a ride to the subway station in order to catch the train back to Manhattan.
I will definitely return to Sleep Inn , and I strongly recommend it ( look no further if you have an early flight and need to stay close to the airport )
These people are ultra professionals !!

I stayed at Sleep Inn, Jamaica, NY, in May 2012. The front desk staff and shuttle bus drivers were friendly and helpful! Especially Wendy, their manager, was incredible - friendly, jovial, helpful, and professional. She made me felt so at home! The room size was just cosy enough for me. The little notes found in the bathroom (which read that we can always approach the front desk in case we forget to bring our toiletries) assured me that I will always be well taken care of at Sleep Inn.

Though they do not have cafes or restaurants within the hotel, they had menus in the room or at their front desk from local restaurants that delivered your orders to your room. There is simple complimentary breakfast provided every morning. Though not a great neighborhood nor does it have facilities that most typical hotels offer such as swimming pool, it is compensated by having such great staff. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

What a wonderful place to stay! Clean and new! GREAT front desk staff!! I agree with another reviewer that Wendy was incredible - friendly, helpful and profesional. I will definitely stay here again on future trips through JFK. The neighborhood may not be the greatest but I felt safe and comfortable. The front desk had menus from local restaurants that delivered since there are no places to eat near the hotel. There is a free breakfast in the morning - waffles, sausage, etc. - a very nice offering.

I ended up staying here due to flight snafus and an unexpectedly late 1:00 am arrival at JFK. I arrived at 1:30 a.m. only to face a 20 minute wait for the single front desk person on duty to check me in, though to be fair she was very friendly and simply inundated with checking in other guests while taking phone calls. Note to hotel: you desperately need to hire a second front desk person if it is typically this busy at 1 am.

The hotel is not in a great neighborhood nor does it have much in the way of amenities, but the rooms are reasonably clean and modern and it has a free JFK shuttle, at least during limited hours. (It's several miles away from JFK but still one of the closest affordable options). OK as a layover hotel but not sure anyone has much other reason to stay here.

We got to the hotel much later than expected at about 2 AM. The manager on duty was so friendly and helpful. He even came outside to help us find a parking space since the hotel lot was full. I also noticed they had a security guard outside where the cars are parked. The room was average size for this price range in NYC but nice and newly decorated. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was small but also very nicely decorated. Breakfast was included with our room and in addition to continental breakfast items there was sausage and fresh waffles. Since we had turned in our rental car we took advantage of the free shuttle service to/from JFK. They also took us to Jamaica Station - also free. Highly recommended if you need to stay near the airport.

Wendy the manager was so nice and professional, she should be the owner. She is the role model for all hotel managers and clerks.
