Room had no towels, upon check-in receptionist told us (myself and another guest who checked-in moments apart) that towels would be sent up when they arrive none was ever sent......walls are thin I was actually hearing the guests next door doing their business in the middle of the night, after traveling 15 + hours from Atlanta by bus I arrived tired, asked if it was possible to check-in early (an hour and a half before regular check-in time) I was told it would be $58 + taxes which I thought was absolutely ridiculous she said I couldn't even stay in a lobby area to wait so I went across the street bought a bubble tea just to sit in the shop to pass the time.....never again would I use this place. and it had no breakfast as advertised and one week later my deposit is not back on my card

Our room is spotless,cleaned every day with new complimentary toiletries. Generous breakfast and all day tea and coffee available. Charming, helpful, friendly, happy staff. It's been a pleasure and would definitely recommend.

Pro was location. You can see the subway one block away. I felt fairly safe in neighborhood walking around at night. Nice variety at breakfast but cafe only had 4 tables and were always full. Small breakfast area. Lobby was clean and updated but hallways and rooms are not. Toilet never flushed right. 2 out of 3 ice machines didnt work. No vending machines worked. The front doors dont ever lock so anyone can walk in and get to the elevator. Staff was friendly. Beds were comfortable and pillows. Quiet neighborhood. Alarm clock kept going off every morning at 5am even though I turned the alarm feature off everyday. I just unplugged it. Rooms and hallways need freshing up. They are dark and gloomy. Window air conditioner duct taped and leaking in the hallway. Several convenience stores and restaurants around the corner. Nice fresh juice shop too. Overall worth a lower price and would stay there again due to location and price. Only 20 minutes to many places.

The staff were helpful, friendly and the rooms clean but small. The location is not very close to times square, empire state building and the general downtown area of broadway New York. Their breakfast is good although the space is small. My bed wasn't stable, as if the base had broken when we checked in but we called them and they fixed it fast.

i would have gave this place 5 stars as i genuinely enjoyed my two nights at the hotel itself - great room, close to the subway, great fast food restaurants around, free breakfast which wasn't bad, only thing that made my stay at the hotel uncomfortable was one of the the female receptionists, she looked so miserable and dismissed a question i asked, so i asked her again and she just gave me a look and answered so rudely i felt so angry,. but i wasn't going to let a miserable person ruin my trip, funny thing is another guest said the same thing during breakfast like someone who makes the business look bad should either be re-trained or fired. anyway guys the hotel itself is great i highly recommend and oh the young female receptionists who sat next to the elevator was very helpful. just the one who sat next to her had VERY VERY POOR customer service skills.
