My family of four stayed at this hotel the week before Christmas and loved it. We also had friends traveling with us (they had their own room). I cannot stress enough that this is a BUDGET hotel. While I tried to explain to our friends (who are not usually a "budget" travelers) what to expect, at check-in I had felt like I failed them. This place is small. The lobby is cramped, the elevator is super slow and old. The rooms are tiny but clean. Our friends compared it to a "pay by the hour motel." I wouldn't quite take it that far but it is an old, out-dated building. If you enjoy hotel decor (sarcasm) do not stay here. Expect your shower to go from hot to cold to hot again during a 10 minute shower. Do not wake up and expect free coffee and stale pastries. There will be none of that.
What you will get is friendly, helpful staff who seem to enjoy conversing with excited tourists. You will get a great location and everything you need just a short walk away. Riverside Park right across the street is great for families who need a break from bus riding, subway catching, and other exhausting activities.
Our kids 6 and 8, had a blast and wanted to live there. We stayed in suite and the kids had their own room and loved the trundle bed (a novelty for them). Our friends ended up loving the hotel purely based on location and they have pledged to stay there when they visit NYC again. Bottom line, there is not a more affordable option in a better location in all of Manhattan. And if there is, we will never experience it.
