Days Inn Jamaica - Jfk Airport
Ranked #10 of 30 Hotels in Jamaica
Reviewed November 19, 2012

My daughter and I were literally stranded in NYC at 2 a.m. because of bad weather. Every hotel within 50 miles was booked, and our flight was scheduled to leave at 6 a.m. We tried dozing at the airport, but too many weird people came up to us. We clung to our luggage as I called as many hotels as I could find. Finally, after more than 50 phone calls, I got a sympathetic voice and his name was Shashi. He listened with concern and said to call back if we couldn't find any place else to stay. Did I say it was my daughter's birthday? What a way to start her big day! I finally decided to take a chance and grabbed a cab to Queens and we dragged our tired bodies, wan smiles and heavy luggage into the lobby. Shashi took one look at us, wished her happy birthday and merged two people into another room to make room for us. We will always be grateful. We were scared, the weather was awful, but Shashi left the lights on for us. We grabbed a hot breakfast and made it back to JFK on time. Shashi, I know I took longer to post this than I meant to, but it is just as heartfelt!

Went to Jamaica Queens Days Inn to stay the night leaving from JFK in the morning.
Thought it would be a good idea to get there the night before, sleep, and leave.

Paid extra for the disgusting, dirty, blackened jet tub.
The tub had the shower above it, so had to stand in the blackened tub to take a shower..

Paid for park and fly....they gave us directions to where to go bring our car a few miles down the road, then take a bus back...no valet, nothing.

The window didnt shut and was hanging on the track by tape, noise of the busy street and sirens etc right outside, making for no sleep at all..

Booked the night we were landing too, immediatly canceled the room, and just drove home after an 8 hour flight..

MISERABLE !

Staff barely spoke English, and couldnt understand what they were saying, or the directions they were giving to make us leave again to park, and eventually come back at 1am.

well my friend and i stayed at this hotel because he came to ny to see me for the weekend. so first off this place has a high flow of people so early check in might be difficult. we arrived at 11am and the room was not ready yet. That was ok because we are in nyc..... there are a lot of things to do to kill time. So upon checking in we went to the room and i was please to say it was really clean especially for days inn. The bathroom was newly model, so that was good. I was able to park on property which is good and it is free. The other nearby hotels want you to pay a daily fee so be mindful of that. But with everything that is good there are some disadvanages..................first off there is no fridge in the room and if you want one there is a fee of ten dollars a day. The selection of cable channels are not that much so that was bit disappointing since we stayed in one night due to bad weather. i cannot comment on breakfast or shuttle because we never used either, both are free so i guess that is a good thing. overall i will give this hotel 3.5 stars but that was not there. This hotel is a good place to shower, rest and go. However if you are required to be in nyc for more than 2days w having to spend sometime in door you maybe disappointed because it is not that comfortable.
