I was looking for a hotel close to my work venue for the week and also was within walking distance to the subway. I read the poor reviews prior to booking but still thought I would try it. Very dirty, holes in sheet, lamp taped together with packing tape, and had to kick the AC to get it to work....

Stayed here overnight between flights as there were 5 of us and we wanted to keep costs down. We had two rooms, one of which smelt of smoke (even though they were meant to be non-smoking!). Both had stained sheets with some having rips in them. décor could have done with being refreshed as there were stains on the ceiling/walls...

Good points: not v expensive, room quite large, free parking, v close to subway, fairly large & comfortable bed, close to JFK, friendly staff. Bad points: bedding was old and ripped, not the best neighbourhood, no curtains/ blinds just nets, v close to freeway = noise, some lights in room + electrical sockets didn't work.

Everything is dirty and stained. The carpet, the walls, the curtains, the shower curtain, the bedding (yes the bedding), the headboard....I mean everything. The chair was broken, the lamp shade was broken, the wifi was slow, and the TV channels were fuzzy. The smoke detector had been removed, and it had a slight odor. It looks like something out of...

The hotel is about 20 mins from terminals. It´s just a basic hotel, don´t expect something more. But for one night between flights - no problem. The staff was nice and helpful. There are some fast foods around (Dunkin, MCD, Wendy´s). The room was ok, nice and big bed, bathroom was also ok. Breakfast was also basic.

I arrived after 10 pm. The hotel was easy to locate, near the local train and other public transportation. The lobby looked excellent, with double sliding doors, which helped keeping the place warm. Room seemed well equipped, with a small refrigerator, a coffee maker, a TV and an immaculate bathroom with clean towels. The bed was well done and mattress...

Looking for a room for long layover? This one might be suitable but don't expect much. Location is okay, near to subway , easy access to JFK airprt, so many choices of restaurants (subway, mcd etc). Just do not stay more than 1d, better go to the next choice of hotel. Noisy with loud music from neighborhood, broken shower, smelly...

My suggestion is that you not stay at this hotel. The front desk people were nice but the hallway was horrendous and the room not much better. The halls and rooms smelled. The other occupants were noisy. A broken towel rack laid on the floor. The sheets didn't even fit the bed. And the worst part was that it was...

Wasn't expecting much. I feel as though I got what I paid for, which wasn't much either. The coffee machine wasn't cleaned out. Luckily there are bodegas and McDonald's and a Wendy's in the area so I wasn't too upset. Otherwise, the only problem I had was that the cleaning staff barely spoke English so getting an extra washcloths turned...
