We knew this was not the place when we pulled up

Reviewed 15 october, 2021

My BFF and I arrived at this hotel and knew this was not the place to be but we found parking anyway on the dirtiest garbage-ridden street ever. My friend took pictures so her boyfriend would believe her. We are from Long Island but are in the city frequently and we were like you cannot be serious!. We ventured past some looking shady-looking characters and went inside only to have the girl behind the front desk look dead in our faces and kept doing whatever. Finally, after 5 minutes when her highness gets up from the seat she tells us it was not time to check-in. Thank you!!! we left and never returned. Still working on getting a refund. We are not snobs by any stretch but come on guys you must do better


Buyer Beware, dirty, sketchy place

Reviewed 23 june, 2021

Where do I start? With the needle syringe on the floor of the lobby or the first room having dirty sheets under a made bed? Both are true statements. The first room had dirty sheets, even though the bed was made, and still had potato chips sprinkled on the floor. The front desk gave us a new room without any hassle. The second room was clean, but didn't have any pillow cases. The 2nd room also had a balcony but its door did not have a latch so it wouldn't completely shut or lock. Glad we were high enough, 7th floor, to not be too concerned with break-in. This hotel rents by the hour for "airport layovers" (and is close to the airport), but my money is betting that the hotel is mainly for a different kind of hourly lay. Be sure to scroll past all the marketing pictures and see the images added by actual hotel guests (lots of dirty rooms).

This establishment houses the less fortunate and people on government assistance. Which is fine! But they should not be aloud to advertise as just a hotel and allow customer to book here. I booked a room over a week ago and it’s in the middle of the hood. Which also is fine. However. When you walk in you will smell the following: WEED, URIN,CIGARETTES! The rooms are not clean. Dirty sheets, tables, and pillows. And worst of all ROACHES! If you are on a major budget and just need a place to sleep for a night then I get it. But beware.


Awful experience

Reviewed 23 march, 2020

We felt like we were in a small box when in our room, first of all. When booking the room, we were told that there was a shuttle to and from JFK. This did not happen, and it turned into Expedia and the hotel blaming each other. My wife and I had to walk through a very sketchy and run-down area from the train station (which is what we had to take). It was about 3-4 blocks, dragging our luggage with us. This was late at night, and was quite unnerving.


If I could post this with 0 stars, I would have.

We were booked this hotel by an airline, after we missed a connecting flight, due to earlier delays. I contacted that airline to ensure they never book this hotel for a customer in the future, as it was a truly alarming experience that caused us to pack up and leave in the middle of the night. To summarize the experience: --- We could find no staff working at the hotel in the first 20 minutes after we arrived and therefore could not check in. There was no note indicating staff would be returning soon, no bell to ring, and no one answering the phone when we called. --- The hotel room was not at all clean, with the curtains spotted with stains, sticky residue on many of the fixtures, toothpaste splatters on the faucet and mirror, and dried nail polish on the bathroom counter top and in the tub. The sheets seemed clean, and we were so exhausted by that time (40 hours of traveling with almost no sleep), we decided to sleep and touch absolutely nothing else. --- While we were sleeping, someone attempted to enter our room around 2:00 am and were only stopped by the latch on the door. It is clear they were able to open the door, as light entered the room, despite it being dead bolted. --- After that, we packed up and went downstairs to check out. Again, there was no staff person there. We tried calling again - no answer - and walked around, knocking on all doors that indicated they were for the public or staff - bathrooms, mechanical rooms, janitorial closets, etc.. We waited/looked for someone for 30 minutes before I called the non-emergency police department number to determine what to do, since I needed my $100 refund and no one seemed to be working. --- While I was on the phone, several people came into the hotel and went immediately up the elevator. We noticed the card scanning device on the door was broken and the elevator did not require a key card. With no staff person at the desk, there was truly no security for the building. --- My sister ran to the hotel next door to ask if they knew any contact information for the hotel we were at. The person next door called the manager, who soon showed to check us out. He was the person who was missing before when we checked in. When we told him we came down to check out 50 minutes prior, he did not acknowledge an issue or apologize. --- While refunding my money, he made a copy of my credit card. When I asked him what it was for, he said, "Don't worry about it." When I pressed him on the issue, he told me it was company policy, but could not articulate the policy, After the waiting/searching and back and forth during check out, we ended up finally leaving the building at 4:00 am. I have stayed at hotels and hostels all over the world and have never had an experience like this. I do not recommend staying here...ever.
