"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 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"

"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.

"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 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"

"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"

"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"

"Nice hotel, but I didn't like having to pay to park. My kids enjoyed the stay.2015-11-17"
"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"

"The Internet connection didn't work the entire 48 hours of my hotel stay. There was a sign to that effect, and management seemed to think that was good enough. The TV reception was terrible. The linens were clean but stained, and the bedspread had cigarette burns. The bed moved away from the wall every time I sat up or moved. There were no lampshades on lamps with eco-friendly lightbulbs.2015-05-21"

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.
