"The hotel didn't have a shuttle or complimentary breakfast. No parking. I was disappointed; it wasn't as online photos depicted.2021-09-17"
"Decent location, with a 7-Eleven and Burger King nearby. The hotel room was clean and quiet, but the electrical outlets wouldn't hold a plug. The chair was broken and felt like it would flip over backwards. Easy check-in. No shuttle service. Overall, a perfectly adequate place for a long layover.2021-04-19"
"Not a bad hotel. We really enjoyed the breakfast.2022-03-03"

"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"
"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"
"I had a really good hotel stay.2020-09-06"
"The hotel was clean and quiet, and the price was right. The employees were friendly. This is a wonderful place to stay; I didn't want to leave.2020-04-11"
"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"
"The location seemed a bit dodgy, but one in the hotel, I was quite pleased. The lobby was under renovation, but the rest of the building was clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast service. The airport shuttle was quick and prompt.2019-03-20"
"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 room was clean, and the employees were extremely friendly. There was a free shuttle to JFK that ran every 30 minutes.2017-09-27"
"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 wasn't in a good part of town. We didn't feel safe and decided not to stay.2018-06-11"
"This was a nice hotel. Weird neighborhood, though. The room was small but clean, and the staff was extra friendly. I didn't like that the check-in clerk made a photo copy of my credit card. No on-site dining, so plan ahead.2016-10-06"
"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"
"Good location. The hotel clerk was kind and thoughtful, and provided exceptional customer service. This is a great choice.2021-11-24"
"Someone tried to open our room door and kept knocking at 7 AM, which woke us up. No ice machine on our floor; we had to go back down to the hotel lobby to get ice. We didn't realize that parking was valet-only, and drove around the block for 20 minutes trying to find on-street parking.2019-10-01"
"Good rates. The room and hallways were nice, clean, and updated, and the staff was helpful. Good breakfast. I was able to park for free on the street; valet parking at the hotel was $32 per night. There were some restaurants within easy walking distance, including a number of Mediterranean places.2019-09-01"
"The hotel room was clean, and the employees were pleasant and professional. I'll stay here again.2018-07-25"
"The room was clean, but the carpet wasn't. The TV didn't work, and it took the clerk almost an hour to connect it. Some guy in the lobby was yelling and swearing at 5 AM, which woke me up. The shower water was lukewarm at best. Don't stay at this hotel.2022-01-10"
"There was a terrible draft from our room window during the night, but that was the only problem with our hotel stay. Breakfast and the airport shuttle were suspended because of Covid.2021-11-25"
"I've stayed at this hotel many times before and loved everything about it, but the heat was turned up every day despite our setting the AC to our preferred temperature. The heater came back on at night and woke us up. Everything else was terrific, and we recommend staying here.2019-09-06"
"The room was comfortable and well-furnished, and the mattress was in good condition. The complimentary breakfast was generous and tasty. The free shuttle to the airport and Billie Jean King Tennis Center was prompt, efficient, and a money-saver. You'll be pleasantly surprised if you stay at this hotel.2018-09-01"
"Convenient to Citi Field and the tennis center. Easy access to the subway and dining options. The hotel was clean, and the staff was helpful and polite. There was an attached Starbucks. If you want decent Italian food, go to Dee's in Forest Hills.2019-09-02"
"The hotel was great and convenient, and I enjoyed the bar. I recommend staying here.2019-08-25"
"The hotel was easy to find, but we had to call for directions to the parking lot since it was on the 2nd level of the building. Our room was quiet but very small, and the queen beds were more like full-sized beds. The bathroom was so small it was hard to close the door; the sink was located outside the bathroom, and there wasn't enough counter space. On a positive note, the continental breakfast was good and there were lots of restaurants nearby. Coffee was always available in the lobby.2018-11-13"
"The hotel was great, but the beds were full-sized, not queen-sized.2018-08-23"

"The hotel staff was friendly. Nice hot breakfast.2016-07-07"
"I didn't have a good experience at this hotel. The room was small, and the cot had springs poking through the mattress. The shower wouldn't turn on; when the worker came to fix it, he said I just had to be strong. Find another place to stay.2016-07-01"
"Excellent service. This hotel is worth a stay.2016-03-28"
"The hotel was clean and quiet. Loved the staff; they were super nice, professional, and friendly. Sharp turn to the parking area in back.2022-03-30"
"The location wasn't easy to find. The room was smaller than I expected, but the view was good. The hotel staff was helpful. Not a great experience.2021-09-09"
"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"

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.
