Americana Inn is in a great location on 38th street and Ave. of the Americas, it is easy to walk to shopping in Manhattan and to Times Square. Subway is close. The hotel is very basic, not fancy at all, just simple beds and sink and mirrow, with a small t.v. But you are in New York, You don't need that room for anything other than sleep.
The maid service was good, bathrooms were clean (not in the room, but it worked out fine), staff is friendly, place seems safe.

Found the Americana Inn in Priceline, goid price, if going in May or after during the summer, bring a fan, as there us ni A/C or ceiling fan, shared bathrooms are very clean.
They are walking dustance away from Broadway, Empire State Building etc, subway , taxi or bus for the rest.

After booking the hotel i read the reviews and got scared.
How ever on arrival it seems like the place is in the final stages of a paint job and a bit of an over haul. Yes the amenities are very basic and yes you do share a bathroom but everything is fresh and clean. I had a single room which was very small with a sink and small flat screen tv but comeon your in the centre of manhatten you only need somewhere to sleep not spend time in. And for the price this is a bargain. Pretemanger next door for your healthy dinning options and i was able to pick up there free wifi in the room. Dont be scared this is a rare one.

Thas's all this place has. Small rooms, worn out beds, half broken venetian blinds, just one towel per person, noisy, no private bathroom, no internet, staff unfriendly. The only plus is its location in the heart of Manhattan. If this is not the last hotel available, shop for something else.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, ask for a room away from the street. The noise is unbearable.

The review on Tripadvisor really help. Since I have a small budget and I did not expect much from the hotel, honestly, I was prepared for the small room and shared bath room, as it is stated in the hotel description. The hotel though is very old but thanks to the room chamber maids, they are cleaned in the afternoon and evening, to avoid the congestion in using the bathroom, please avoid the rush hours.

Due to the room chamber maids are not on 24 hours, so the toilets could be messy after the morning peak hours.

The services levels for the chamber maids and the housekeeping man are good but no the front desk person, he was so unfriendly, I think he worked with his mood, and response to the person he likes.

The hotel advertisement on the website I used for finding it wasn't clear in regards of the shared bathroom, which was very annoying to me but I could cope with it since it was just an overnight stay. I wasn't satisfied at all, since they don't have Wi-Fi on the rooms, not even one of those you have to pay for.

The location is great, that it is. But you definetly don't get your money's worth for a $200 stay in something like that. It is definetly not worth it and if I knew it was so bad I would prefer paying more for a better hotel.

The room was very clean, though. You could smell it was very well kept and there was no dust around. I can't complain about that and even though I wasn't satisfied at all, I will remain fair.

The shared bathrooms were VERY clean, as well. I didn't feel too much of a discomfort to be honest and wasn't a hassle but for families, I don't advise it. It's better to pay more for privacy and comfort.

As far as I'm concerned they didn't provide breakfast.

The reception staff was quite distant and borderline rude. I didn't expect anything different, if you know...

The hallways had a noisy floor and you could clearly hear people walking and talking outside. The walls didn't seem to be very sound proof either.

Room Tip: I had a room facing the street on the 5th floor. The window was soundproof and worked very well at n...
