"The hotel was nicely decorated, and the 24-hour coffee bar was a life-saver. However, the neighborhood wasn't the best and the streets were filthy and dangerous. Not enough parking, and 7 AM cleaning restrictions for much of the street parking.2016-10-07"

"A comfortable, quiet hotel with spacious rooms. Close to the subway station. I felt safe in the immediate neighborhood. The staff was helpful and very nice. They could help guests get anywhere in the city using public transportation. Nice gym next door, but it didn't have a pool. On-site dining was limited to vending machines and a complimentary breakfast, but there was a wonderful Mexican restaurant within walking distance, called Xochimilco Family Restaurant. I loved staying at this hotel.2015-06-28"

"This hotel was better than I expected. It was close to LGA and had a shuttle service. The room and bathroom were clean, but the AC was so loud that it disturbed my sleep. The front desk clerks were kind and helpful, and the shuttle was safe and efficient. I'd certainly stay here again.2019-11-02"

"The front desk clerks provided great service. When I got lost on the way to the hotel, one clerk guided me by phone to the doorstep. He was extremely patient and incredibly helpful. Despite some errors on my part, the other clerk labored to print out my boarding pass. Pay to park in the parking lot; it's well worth the $20 fee.2021-05-25"

"Close to the airport and reasonably priced. The motel was outdated, and the carpet in my room smelled bad. The light by the bed didn't work, and there was nowhere to plug in my cell phone since I didn't have an adapter. Spend a little more to get a good night's sleep.2019-08-26"

"Close to LGA and Citi Field. The area was more industrial than I expected. The hotel was clean and reasonably priced, but it seemed a bit dated and worn. Limited cable channels. The staff was reasonably pleasant. Adequate free breakfast, but limited snack selection. A lot of the restaurants in the area were Asian.2019-09-12"
"The room and bathroom were clean, but the hotel clerk wouldn't provide a cot, saying she couldn't change the reservation. I wasn't able to get blankets and pillows for the sofa, either. The ice machine leaked on the carpet.2018-10-11"
"This hotel was in excellent condition; the interior looked new. The room was large by New York standards. All the employees were helpful. I had a minor problem with a taxi, and the manager took over and resolved the issue perfectly. Breakfast was adequate, but that was the only meal available on-site. A larger hotel with a nice dining room and bar was a short 3-block walk away.2015-09-14"

"Far from everything in the city. I didn't feel safe staying at this hotel alone. There was a sign saying no visitors were allowed after 10 PM. There was a loud argument in the room next to mine. My non-smoking room reeked of smoke masked by some awful fragrance. Housekeeping didn't come by until 5 PM. Don't recommend staying here.2015-08-12"

"Located in Chinatown near abandoned buildings. When I arrived, the hotel clerk said I'd have to pay a $250 deposit in case we smoked in the room. I asked for a room upgrade and view of the baseball field, which he agreed to. However, the room was dirty and dark and had a view of a brick wall. No fridge or microwave. We returned to the desk and asked for another room, and the clerk came with us to see it. We smelled marijuana as soon as we got off the elevator, but he didn't seem concerned. The room was clean, but the key card didn't work, so we had to return to the desk and get new keys. There was an outlet with no cover, and the baseboard was chipped. One of the desk drawers wouldn't stay closed. Don't stay at this hotel.2018-08-10"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
