This hotel was easy to get to during our stay in NYC area. One block from subway station. There was a police surveillance on the block day and night. Clean and comfortable rooms. Bus stop right across the street. Breakfast room was always full and if you are not one for carbs or are gluten free, very limited choices. Elevator was painfully slow. All in all, would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This hotel has everything you need for a visit to new york. We saved a lot by coming here and the subway station to bring you right into manhattan is only a 5 min walk. We were standing at times sq 10 mins after we left our room! The area is not the best (mostly industrial and some apartment blocks) but we had no problems walking to and from the subway day or night. Breakfast was self service with disposable plates and cutlery but we could overlook this due to the clean and comfortable rooms and good service.

We stayed at this hotel as it was close to Manhattan and had good transport links. The hotel itself is more like a motel and offered a continental breakfast which wasn't really continental as there was no protein on offer. It was a bit of a scramble at breakfast as the restaurant was more like a staff canteen and very limited on covers. Scrambled egg was of the powdered variety and not edible.
There was no room service nor was there a bar. However the room was a good size and gave a great view of Manhattan.
The carpet was vacuumed once during our 9 day stay.
Not the greatest place to stay but having said that the bed was very comfortable.

Room Tip: High rooms on the north east side will give you great views of Manhattan

The hotel is in a bad industrial location with a rather large low income housing project in the next block. We were advised not to walk in the area after dark. Pretty tough when the subway train drops you off in the heart of the Projects. Decent restaurants are over a mile away. Cab fare is $9 from the restaurants. Not too many cabs in the area and you get hassled by the Russian private cabs, without a meter. Don't take them.

Due to the government shutdown, everything is closed. My family & I had to cancel our trip, there's no point in going if all the attractions we were planning on attending are closed. We called to cancel our reservations and were told that we couldn't do that. They were going to charge us either way for ALL the nights, while we won't be even making use of them. If they charged us a penalty, I'd understand. But for ALL the nights? That's a lot of money. We already had to pay $200 on each of our flight tickets and it cost my parents plently of money. We don't live in the States, we live pretty far and we had to cancel because we had no choice. Not because we wanted to. I emailed the hotel and still haven't even gotten an answer. Very unprofessional. I'm disappointed that things had to go this way. This was our first and last time booking at ANY Best Western hotel.
