“Comfortable budget option for visit to New York”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Easy walk a couple of blocks from the 40th Street / Lowery Station on the number 7 line of the subway (this line also goes to Grand Central Station and Times Square). If you are travelling from Manhattan, you can see the hotel (and the MacDonalds next door) on the right hand side just before the station.
Chose to stay here as when I stayed in Manhattan I had a tiny room, no window, and a shared bathroom down the Hallway. Here, the bed was enormous and the room perfectly comfortable. Had own bathroom and window! Free wi-fi in the room and free continental breakfast (cereal, toast, hot and cold drinks, colourful doughnuts), self service in a room adjacent to reception. Receptionists friendly. When I asked how to get the water to come out of the shower instead of the bath tap (not as obvious as usual) the receptionist took a bath tap out of a drawer to demonstrate so was glad to know I was not the first one!
If you stay here and are using the subway, note that there will either be a circle or a diamond in lights on the outside of each car of the train. If there is a circle, this is a local stopping service. If there is a diamond (happens when travelling during peak-time), this is an express service and the train will not stop at 40th Street / Lowery Station (although you just need to get off at the next station stopped at and cross over to the opposite platform to get where you want to go).

Although not in Manhattan this hotel was the perfect place for us for our trip to New York. Just 15 minutes from Times Square by subway. Good neighbourhood, friendly staff, clean rooms with free internet for everyone, breakfast a little bit sober but ok and otherwise Pete's Grill (or McDonalds) is just around the corner. In Manhattan a hotel like this would cost you double the money so I can recommend this hotel to everyone !

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back side of the hotel, bacause the Subway (7) train rides very close by and m...

If you are really in a budget stay there. Not recommended for senior citizens. No internet on fifth floor. Had to go to the lobby to check emails. Very inconvenient.

Few blocks from subway station. Bank of America 6 blocks away. Mcdonalds across the street.

Subway takes you quite fast to Manhattan. $2.5 per person, one way trip.

The guy on the front desk suggested that I should remove my GPS from the minivan I rented. So you can expect a non friendly neighboorhood. I did walked at night with my kids with no problem.

Room Tip: No internet on fifth floor. Quiet floor though.

The hotel gets 4 stars (well I guess technically 4 circles) for its location and value for the money. The subway, which will take you to grand central, bryant park, and times square in 15-20 minutes, is 2 blocks from the hotel. You can see the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building when you're walking back to the hotel from the subway. There are also a bunch of restaurants nearby, a CVS, and the area is very safe. I felt confident and secure as a petite woman walking back from the subway at night. Even though the hotel is by the elevated subway tracks, I didn't notice much train noise or street noise. For a price that's lower than anything you'll find in Manhattan, you get a clean room with a refrigerator, that's a decent size in a quiet location.

The negatives: the wifi was a little slow, especially at night. There was a mediocre selection at breakfast. Both of these amenities were free, and they definitely sufficed, so I can't really complain too much. There was also an awkward setup in the lobby. You will have to drag your luggage up some stairs to get to the elevator. The A/C unit in the room was pretty loud. Luckily I didn't have to use it too often during my trip.

The positives definitely outweighed the negatives. This hotel is good for people who are looking for a no frills hotel that will provide you with a clean and safe place to stay while you're exploring New York, and it won't completely empty out your wallet.

This is a very reasonably priced hotel with good sized clean rooms & friendly staff. Our room had a large TV and refridgerator.

The location is quiet and next to the No. 7 (Local) subway - use either 33rd Street or 40th Street. There is a shop in the garage next door & a diner and takeaway close by.

We will definately use this hotel again.

This place did have in its favor the price, a good continental breakfast and are very close to a Subway stop. And those are about the only good things I can say about the place.
We are still waiting on an extra pillow since they went with a mini version of a pillow. We calling to make the reservation and requesting a roll away cot, calling to confirm the reservation we requested a roll away cot, called day of the reservation to say we’d check in late we requested a roll away cot; when we checked in we did not get a roll away cot. The operators/staff will talk to each other in a foreign language right in front of you, when they both speak English.
Over all, I would never recommend this place to anyone. I’d suggest finding another motel.

Room Tip: Choose one somewhere else.
