Oke, so there are old & dirty rooms. But honestly great location and price. Directly at timessquare. ( great to hang out during night time) You pay for what you get.. If you are used to hostels, you Will have no problems staying here. However, Don't go here if you expect cleanliness and luxury.

Yes, when location is all you need this hotel is for you. Forget all the other features, you wont think in that because Carter Hotel is in the center of everything, the best stores and restaurants are one or two blocks away.

I was not thrilled with the pote d'creme. It was a bit on the salty side, and was tepid by the time it was delivered. The kids, however, loved the surprises the staff left and playing "Law & Orde: SVU".

Location, location, location. Don't be disturbed by the lobby, you'll quickly come to realize it is a part of the charm but it may make you a little nervous before you get to your room, ha ha. The rooms are worn but more than adequate if you are in NY to see NY. If you want to know exactly what...

Very basic but very clean and spacious. Fantastic location and would certainly return. Bathroom was very big and kept clean. Lobby has lots of information and staff very helpful. Times square is yards away but the hotel remains quiet on a night.

Its been eons since I've been at this location but I didn't have a problem that I could think of the staff I remember was pretty decent at the time. Id most likely go back hoping to see any upgrades. The only real complaint that I have is the there really wasn't much of a view to look out from...

This hotel is old, needs renovation. The price is reasonable as its Just within walking distance to Times Square.for a short visit I do recommend this place for its convenience. But yes it does need renovation if the hotel wants to attract more tourists.

My boyfriend and I we're ecstatic when we found this hotel basically in the heart of Times Square, or at least a few steps away. We didn't care much for an over the top fancy hotel, as our main reason for out visit was to tour NY. The price was really good ($109/night) to be so close to Times Square....

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
