I needed a place to stay in the city for one night, and this was substantially cheaper than anything else I found (especially as a single traveler -- it was helpful that they had smaller rooms with single beds). I understand the concept of the "budget" hotel, and I'm not one to complain about the amenities being accordingly basic of even a little drab. If it's safe and clean, I'm happy.
What disappointed me about Larchmont was the fact that the hall bathrooms didn't have sinks. They just had hand sanitizers, presumably since you can go actually wash your hands in your bedroom (which has a sink). I was nevertheless a little surprised and mildly disgusted by this, as I did not think it was the most sanitary arrangement. Maybe this is normal in New York (?), but I have not observed this shortcut elsewhere. I've always just assumed that bathrooms came with sinks....
That said, it was fine, especially for a night. Given my needs, I'm not sure I would have chosen to stay somewhere else instead for surely another $30-50+.
Pluses: Excellent, central location. Free continental breakfast included. Friendly and accommodating staff. Wifi.
Cons: No sink in hall bathrooms. Relatively thin walls.
