We stayed at the Ramada Eastside for six nights in July and can highly recommend the hotel. We found its location to be perfect: Not in the middle of the craziness of midtown Manhattan, but still close enough to major attractions. We could easily walk to most places in Midtown, and two subway stations are located conveniently close to the hotel, and there is a bus stop right in front of it. There are a number of shops and restaurants in the area, too (try Curry in a Hurry for a quick but very good meal, there's also a 7/11 and Starbucks nearby).
We stayed in a double queen room on the 6th floor, and the room was spacious enough for the four of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers). Everything including the bathroom was very clean and housekeeping did a very good job every day. The beds were really comfortable, too. The air conditioning is a bit noisy, yes, and there is a little noise from the street, but with ear plugs we really slept very well and were not bothered at all. There even was a fridge and a microwave which we had not requested.
Some people seem to complain about the elevators, we did not experience any difficulties with them at all and never had to wait long for one.
The free wifi did not work properly in our room, but it did in the lobby and in the breakfast room, so this didn't bother us.
The free breakfast is a real bonus. Although the choices are limited, the quality is fine and it's enough to keep you going for the morning. We liked that we didn't have to leave the hotel and look for somewhere (affordable, too) to have breakfast every morning. Much appreciated!
Staff were friendly and helpful.
We paid about $170 per night (excl. tax) for the four of us, so this is really a bargain considering the excellent location, the cleanliness and size of the room and the free breakfast. We booked our room on the Ramada website, as Ramada does not charge for children older than 12, while there is an extra fee if you book through the Applecore website. So if you're traveling with teenagers, go for the Ramada website.
We would certainly return to the Ramada Eastside should we travel to NYC again.
