Located on 38th St, between 10th and 11th Av. - The staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel offers a continental breakfast which was ok. The hotel is a few blocks away from the subway, but we didn't mind the walk. Taxi's were easy to catch at the corner, and the bus terminal is 6 blocks away also. We flew into Newark airport and took the bus to the Port Authority Bus terminal on 42nd St and walked to the hotel - easy and very inexpensive.
There is a great liquor store on the corner of 10th Ave/38th St with a fantastic selection of wines. There is also a 24 hr Duane Read drugstore right on the same corner.
Our room was decent - typical size for new york (small!), but at least we had a king sized bed. The room was clean, and the air conditioning worked well.
Overall, the hotel isn't anything special, but for the price and location being only a few blocks away from the subway/times square ... it worked for us.
