"The hotel was nicer than I expected, and it was close to NYU. I loved the neighborhood around Waverly Place. The room and bathroom were spacious for NYC, and both were impeccably clean. No fridge in the room, so be sure to request one if you need it. Check-in and checkout were efficient, and the staff was courteous and helpful throughout my stay. I can't wait to come back.2019-07-13"
"Comfortable accommodations and luxurious linens. The hotel staff was courteous and promptly addressed my requests.2018-08-10"
"The room was tiny but nicely appointed. No microwave in the room, and there was no ice machine on my floor or in the lobby. The hotel clerk was nice and ran to the basement to get the items I needed. The bartender was friendly and provided recommendations about things to do.2017-03-02"
"The hotel was dingy, dark, and quite ugly. I will admit, the bed was extremely comfortable. As advised, I called for my car 45 minutes early, and it arrived 45 minutes late. I didn't get any help bringing my things to the car, even though I'm on oxygen. Don't stay here.2023-06-17"
"Nice, affordable hotel room. Park at the open lot one block east; it's monitored 24 hours a day.2017-06-02"
"The hotel was being remodeled when I stayed. One of the elevators was tied up all day, so I had to wait for elevator service.2016-02-10"
"The hotel was centrally located and close to good restaurants, activities, and the subway. There was a Whole Foods just around the corner, and a Trader Joe's a few blocks away. I walked everywhere. The customer service was really good, but the elevators were dirty.2020-09-29"
"We were satisfied with the service. I recommend this hotel.2018-06-11"
"This is a no-frills hotel. The room was small but clean, and the shower had good water pressure. The employees were helpful and friendly. Not a fantastic location, but there were restaurants within walking distance.2016-02-20"
"The housekeepers were changing bedding and moving the beds in the elevators, so it took forever for them to be free for guest use. The bed blanket was thin, and there were no extra blankets. Don't stay at this hotel.2023-04-28"
"Expect good customer service at this hotel.2017-01-14"
"The online photos were the most flattering view possible. The reality was a disappointment. The room was small, and the hotel staff wasn't particularly pleasant. I probably wouldn't opt to stay here again.2016-05-11"

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.
