Stayed over the summer. Keep your expectations low and you'll be happy. The property caters to those in the "late night service" industry who are more than willing to pay the overpriced rate for a room at this establishment knowing they can pretty much go about their business without any trouble from the staff. I've worked in the hospitality industry for the majority of my life so dont think im just making assumptions here. The reason the staff seems largely unconcerned when presented with a complaint is because they know regardless of how poorly the rooms present, they'll always be able to sell it to a working girl or her booking agent (aka:pimp) for rack rate! If your looking for a quality accommodation, I suggest you stay at one of the many Marriott properties in the area. However, If your looking for a place to further a nefarious agenda- You've found it!

This hotel is priced within your reach for New York. Public transportation is within 5 minutes close by to the city. Lots of good restaurants within the neighborhood. JFK airport is 10 minutes away. Strategically located.

WARNING: STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE. There’s a couple of other hotels to stay in literally a mile radius of this place. I really do hate leaving bad reviews I’ve worked in customer service forever and I understand things can happen that are out of ones control that customers can misunderstand but there was way too much that happened in my 3 night stay at this hotel. First night we walked into the wrong workin TWICE not once twice! We were kept being assigned to the the wrong room. Finally they realized they didn’t have space for us and split the 4 of us into single rooms on different floors. Totally not what we asked for but being out of state and already have been paid in the beginning we had no choice. You’d think they would be more careful right? I totally understand mistakes but you look at what you did wrong and you don’t do it again. I’m the middle of the night I had someone WALK INTO MY ROOM WHILE I WAS SLEEPING. Someone else had been assigned the wrong room. At this point I’m concerned for my safety. This is all in less than 12 hours of being at this place that wants to be called a hotel. Next morning my friends that I had to be split up with gets a call about checking out, we weren’t supposed to check out for another 2 days. To make this looooong story semi-short they needed our rooms for the people that were checking in that day and the room that was supposed to be ours happened to be now ready. I did not want to move I felt for the inconvenience I had received the staff should’ve figured it out but I was offered a LATE CHECK OUT AND A REFUND. Not a full refund but a partial he didn’t have authority to tell me how much and a manager was going to contact me and I understood that and we went to pack out things to move rooms for the convenience of the hotel. This was on Saturday October 12 at around 11am. I wish I would’ve grabbed the guy at the front desks name because it has been a week since I checked out and I have not once spoken with this so-called manager. Every time I call they tell me they’ll let him know and take my name and number and nothing has been done. To make things worst the person who picked up today at 2:13pm on October 21st was rude when I told him my situation JUST STAY AWAY. The rooms aren’t terrible for area and price but the management and inconveniences I was out through just wasn’t worth it.

If you rent this room, do not expect a free shuttle ride. You have to pay a $22 taxi from jfk to be transported into this hotel location. The location is not very safe. Sometimes in the middle of the night you hear people having sex and people arguing. Price is decent but its very close to the near subway station.

This is the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. First, we paid for a queen bed and clearly got a full and that wasn't even the worst part. The toilet seat had multiple spots of DRY BLOOD. The housekeepers came and told us that it was stained( it wasn’t as you can see from the pictures below). I was told they would contact the manager and he would call to speak to me; he never did. The front desk receptionist told us that they would not allow 3 people to stay in the room although it was clearly booked for 3 individuals and as a result of this we would have to vacate the room for the night. Didn’t mention the incident, or apologize. WORST EXPERIENCE.
