“Not all it's cracked up to be, Jamaica Super 8”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2005

I stayed at the Jamaica Super8 Motel, September 18-22, 2005. I give it a thumbs down for misrepresenting its amenties and for inadequate customer service. Prospective guests should be advised that it no longer offers some of the amenities listed online and in its brochure.

There is no plasma TV and computer work station in the lobby
No limo service
No free newspaper
No iron and ironing board in the room

Although the front desk clerks were all pleasant, only one really provided good customer service. I arrived on a red-eye and the clerk told me no room was ready and I should come back at noon. I went to the breakfast room and one hour later the clerk on the next shift immediately asked housekeeping staff to prepare a room for me. That was unexpected and great service!

However, no other clerks responded to my requests to replace a burned out bedside lamp light bulb, replace a broken hairdryer, and locate a tv remote control misssing from the room.

this hotel is fairly new in the jamaica area. its far from jfk. unless u take the airtrain. because this wasnt for vacational purposes i was pleased. otherwise as a tourist i would not stay there unless i know new york. from jfk u can take the airtrain to jamaica center/sutfin($5) or whatever street and its a 15-20 minute walk down the street, not bad. there are fast food restaurants down the street and a bar that services west indian food in very short walking distance. there are chinese restaurants that delivers there. the location is bad. nothing else is nearby. u have to walk like 20 blocks down jamaica ave to the subway if u want to go manhattan. but it is only 2 bucks compared to 60 in a car. the rooms at this hotel are nice and clean. what u would expect at a budget hotel. this hotel didnt have any unpleasant odors that were out of ordinary. the non smoking rooms didnt smell like smoke. the continental breakfast was awful, of course. i was surprised the milk was fresh. this is super8 not embassy suites.
