This is the second time I have stayed here. I chose a bunkbed room as I was solo for two nights and my daughter joined me the last night. We love the beds with their own TVs. The shower is excellent and especially good for tall people! The only thing I miss is a coffee pot but Starbucks and Dunkin are very close so it is not a big deal. It reminds me of a cruise ship stateroom but with a bigger shower.

I’ve had good stays here but this was not one of them. The elevator floor pad is confusing. As the floor buttons do not work- just cover them. I saw it was confusing for many people.

We were very happy with our stay at Pod TS. The staff was quite friendly. We were able to check in early as our room was ready. The 12pm checkout worked out perfectly for us also. I was surprised that the room was relatively quiet and I didn't hear a lot of street nor hotel noise on a Mon morning. The location was great for getting to Rockefeller Plaza, TS, and the airport or basically anymore. Super convenient. It was very clean also and the bed was comfortable. A great price for a great location when you don't need a lot of space.

This was an excellent stay! Me and one other family member stayed in the Bunk Bed room, which was amazing. The ladder was metal and very sturdily and reliably attached to the bed. The room had a breathtaking view with a chair. You could look at the view for hours and still not get enough of it! There was a safe and a coat rack, which were both very useful forms of storage. When I first saw the room, I noticed that both bunks had their own mini-shelf and TV. The TVs had lots of different channels and they even had their own alarm and sleep timers, which were extremely helpful. The mini-shelves on each bunk contained a charging station, TV remote, and a flashlight built into the wall. We didn't use the flashlight much because it was very bright, but it seemed to be helpful. The room itself was very clean and professional. The sheets and blankets were free of any bugs, insects, or pests. The floors were spotless and it seemed as if nobody had stayed prior to our visit. The bathroom was separated by a blurred sliding door, which was fun to slide back and forth. The rainfall shower was very good, and the two trashcans in both the bedroom and bathroom were a big plus. My favorite part about the Pod Times Square hotel was the location. It was super close to Times Square, smack dab between the upper and lower parts of Manhattan, and it was walking distance from almost everything. Countless restaurants were near us, and they were all delicious and fun to have nearby. The hotel was also off the beaten path, so it was a bit hard to find. Overall, I highly recommend the Pod Times Square hotel and it was a fun experience!

after another hotel stay fell through I was very happy to find Pod Hotels. For NY, the room was relatively inexpensive and had everything needed for a great place to lay my head after a full time in Manhattan

Ideal location for events at Javits. Rooms were clean. Shower was normal sized, which is a plus in these pod hotels. Bed was rock hard and not comfortable. Downstairs bar and lounge was beautiful.

First off, Sahar, who was my first point of contact was stellar! This is the exact type of hotel I will always stay in from here on out, it's no frills but it provides me with everything I need for a stay in a big city. Besides it has a bar that serves food in the lobby. I mean it didn't have any fancy bougie artwork in the rooms, but who needs that? I'm here to see the city not see some really decorated Hotel room. I loved it!

Ok, I have stayed at many places in and around Time Square, and this is my new favorite place. Hear me out, This may be the smallest room I have ever stayed in in the area, but it had everything I needed, was comfortable and there was a beautiful simplicity to the room, bathroom,and desk area. My son and I stayed here for 7 nights during a spring break trip to the city. For a boys trip the bunk bed layout was perfect. Location is also a big plus. You are two blocks from Time Square, Subway, and great restaurants. Over the years I have come to find that every place I stayed at in Time Square is overpriced, rundown, and not very hospitable. The Pod Time square has changed this for me, they are affordable, have a great staff (let us check in early), and the rooms are clean, bedding in comfortable, and was the right balance of everything we needed and nothing we did not. Will stay there again if given the chance!

Juan Carlos the receptionist was very nice all the rest of reception staff were not very friendly. My room was cleaned ONCE in 7 days. They charged a tax at the beginning of the trip which is basically a deposit which is refunded after your stay. BUT there is a chargeable facility tax which comes out of your account which they do not tell you about. There no GYM in the hotel or pool so I’m not sure what facilities they are charging you for. Also the fact they cleaned the room once in 7 days why am I paying a facility tax??

Response from Shanna Soares, Marketing at Pod Times Square
Responded 1 week ago
Thank you for your feedback. While our direct rates are fully inclusive of all taxes and fees, certain third parties break out part of the cost to be collected at arrival. We always recommend guests book directly with us to receive the best rate with no confusion. I hope you enjoyed your time in NYC.

Friendly, helpful staff. Felt safe and secure. Very quick resolution to request for room maintenance. I have stayed at the Pod before, always satisfied. The common areas are great, plenty of room to spread out, work remotely, visit with friends/family.
