This was my first time staying at Pod. The inside of the building had modern decor yet simple. Very different from. Your usual hotel. The front desk staff was wonderfully pleasant and accommodating. The room was small and immaculately clean. It’s all we needed in a home base while tooling around NYC. It’s refreshing to have affordable accommodations in the convenient heart of Times Square without killing you financially. I will definitely stay here again.

I loved it here. Been to New York many times and this was my best stay. However, room alone. Do not room with someone. There’s not enough space. Very low maintenance hotel for people on the go in New York. Location was fantastic. There’s no bells and whistles. Room was clean, air worked, great location easy check in check out. Not noisy. Beds comfortable. Really didn’t need much more. If you’re looking for a fancy hotel don’t stay here. If you’re looking for a place to rest your head for a great price in a great location this is the place for you.

I couldn´t stay at the hotel and had to cancel last minute onsite. Made the reservation through Booking.com which made it more complicated. Reenie on front desk stood up. Superb AAA Reenie! She made it happen and got refunded, cant wait to go back and stay at Pod Times Square.

This was a great hotel for the purpose of our trip. I can see how people would be disappointed if they're expecting lots of "extras"-- there is no refrigerator or microwave, the rooms are very small, housekeeping had to be called due to the pandemic-- but these things are clearly advertised online, so guests shouldn't be surprised. The room was pretty quiet despite the downtown location. The private bathroom was a nice plus. We'd definitely recommend to others who are planning to be out and about most of the day and just want a simple place to crash overnight.

Room is perfect small but has a good bathroom and comfortable bed, it is clean but it was not clean any day but I was ok with it. I was in room 1420 which has a nice view of the city if I could get a higher floor I would. Noise is the city noise but I was able to rest very well with no issue. Good location. Friendly and attentive staff. I will stay here again
