If you are looking for a great spot in the heart of NYC, and you're on a budget, look no further. I can't say enough good things about our stay. The staff was friendly (Shetima at the desk helped us before we booked and when we arrived), the rooms were clean and well appointed, the bed was comfy and you could not possibly be in a better location. Times Square is a block away, Rockefeller Center is just a few blocks, and you are well within walking distance of just about every theater. The breakfast was substantial and there was coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the lobby all day. Carve (pizza) is right across the street, as well as the double decker tour bus stops for the downtown and uptown loops. The rooms are small and basic, but the friendly and helpful staff truly shine. Shout out to Kathy and Alex, too. Everyone on staff went out of their way to help with directions, recommendations, anything we needed. This is not an upscale 5-star hotel, but you're not paying those kind of prices, either. This place is worth every cent, and then some. Stay in this convenient, comfy and friendly spot and save your money for an extra show or two!

An excellent hotel for a reasonable price with a good breakfast in a central location close to Time Square and Broadway. The rooms are clean, the staff are friendly and very helpful. Nothing is to much trouble for them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor as it can be noisy due to the street traffic.

This is a wonderful little hotel in a superb location. Just 5 minutes walk to Times Square. The staff here are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, modern and with excellent facilities. Breakfast is varied and vast. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough, especially for the price we paid. Great value for money.

The most memorable thing about this hotel is how cordial, helpful and pleasant all the staff are. I have not encountered this level of friendliness in any other hotel -- and I travel a lot. The location was perfect for us since we were only 3 blocks from our conference. However, the room was amazingly small with nowhere to put anything that didn't block access to the bathroom or the door. It is also a little rundown. The location makes it VERY noisy due to all the street traffic, which goes on all night. Bring your headphones and some soothing sleeping music!

The only reason I'd stay here again is because of the staff.

My experience at the EconoLodge Times Square was exceptional. Although the hotel is modest and the rooms are basic, it is clean and comfortable and well-maintained. For anyone interested in Broadway theatre, the location could not be better. The staff was amazingly friendly and competent. And, for the price, it is unbeatable. The best deal in NYC!

Ok! YES the rooms are teeny tiny (no more than 2 MAYBE 3 people can fit comfortably)! My husband bumped his head on the TV at least twice lol but whatever its NEW YORK we weren't there to sit in our room. We went to sleep, shower, and nap. For the location, cleanliness, & amazing customer service you cannot beat the price in Times Square. Every employee in the building, during our stay, were SO nice! They were accommodating and knowledgeable...Honestly it made all the difference! Needless to say I was very happy with my stay. My ONLY complaint was when we got back to our room one day around 4, our room was barely being cleaned and we were EXHAUSTED but that was it! Would definitely recommend this place.
