This is the second of three hotel reviews in our three-day tour of JFK hotels: The Holiday Inn Express.
Dingy hotel. Dingy lobby. Dingy room. A big, hostel-like dining area by the vending machines for families with take-out. No restaurant. No pool.
On the plus side: the front desk staff was very nice and attentive. And they packed us free snacks for breakfast to take to the airport. Bonus!
I hope to never set foot in this hotel again but it served its purpose: shelter in a storm.
