Arrived at the hotel, supposed to get free parking and she tell me that's $21... After that she told me that's dangerous To get parked in another street, that's why it seem like a jail... Pee on thé bathroom floor, bugs and dirty spots, walls were dirty... There was a big spot light directly on the window, every person who's getting out to the parking is smashing the spot... unable To sleep Well, windows aren't well isolated, cold wind is passing tru the glass... The most disgusting hotel I ever seen. Talked with other people in the hotel, first time each other were coming at this hotel. Nothing positif to est about this place, unable to know if our cars will be there after one night. Weird people are always entering the hotel, asking coffee at the desk. Wifi isn't working well, no breakfast, not a safety place To stay

Good price for New York area. Hotel needs modernising. Rooms very clean, but I did find 2 ants and a cockroach in the bathroom. Not a bad area though, looks like there are a few homeless staying at the hotel/hanging around in the lobby but they didn't cause any problems. Quite noisy if you have a room facing the front but nothing that bothered me too much. Penn station for subway to New York only 15 minute walk away. Would stay again and use as a budget hotel. Less than half the price of other hotels in the area.

My rating is a one because it would not let me do nothing. Not worth the one even. When we arrived there were people hanging out right at the door...partying. In the lobby the next night was a guy slumped over on a couch. Did not feel safe. Security at McDonald's a block away and at the family dollar store. The security guy told me to be very careful here. Would not recommend to anyone.
