"Located in a rough part of town, but it was close to JFK Airport, and there was a gas station a block away. The hotel was clean. I didn't like the temperature control; no outside air. 2 sensor lights in the room drove me crazy, and I could hear people talking and smoking near my window. Pleasant check-in. I appreciated the elevator. 2021-06-25"

"My 2nd floor room was excellent, but the street noise was loud. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the complimentary breakfast was really good. I definitely recommend this hotel, but ask for a room away from the street noise.2019-11-10"

"Nice, quiet hotel. Great shuttle to the airport in the morning, but it did not pick us up from the airport terminal; we had to take an inter-terminal train to the shuttle pick-up site. Great breakfast. Stay here.2022-02-05"

"The hotel clerk was pleasant and professional, and the evening shuttle driver was courteous, helpful, and professional. But the morning driver was curt and negative. 2021-07-14"
"The hotel room was pleasant, but the AC didn't cool the room as much as we'd have liked. We had a view of an industrial building, huge garbage cans, and scattered trash. The airport shuttle was prompt and quick, and were were able to have coffee and tea before we left.2019-05-18"
"The hotel clerk took care of airline personnel first, even though they arrived after I did. The hallway wasn't clean, but I was pleasantly surprised by the room. I had an extremely comfortable night. Decent breakfast.2016-03-18"

"The linens and bathroom were clean. The hotel staff was helpful. Breakfast was a little funkier than I was expecting, but it was good. The free shuttle took a while to pick us up; a short cab ride might be a better option if you get into JFK late and are tired.2015-10-23"
"The hotel staff was great, but the room was not. The backing-up beeps of trucks was awful. A street light shined right in the window, and we couldn't find a way to close the drapes; not conducive to a good night's rest.2020-02-23"
"The shuttle picked us up at the airport, and the driver was pleasant and took care of our luggage. The hotel lobby was dingy and not welcoming, but check-in was efficient. Our room was nice and quiet, and everything was clean. The bed had 2 pillow sets on the bed, one soft and one firm. Minimal toiletries provided. Checkout was quick, and the return shuttle to the airport was prompt; it ran every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day. Don't let the appearance of the lobby deter you from staying here.2019-08-28"

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.
