Great Location and Great Staff
Eileen, us1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Great location, but the listing on is not accurate. The listing states that there is an in-room safe and that there is in-room climate control (air-conditioning), neither of which are accurate. I also scalded my hip when I got out of the shower because the hot water pipe that runs from the ground floor all the way up to I presume the top floor, is right beside the shower as you get out and it's a narrow bathroom. It is in a great neighborhood and well priced for NY, but I was disappointed that I had to be sure to carry my iPad and valuables with me instead of being able to lock them in a room safe.

Not so good. Too small rooms, no coffee

The hotel is in a nice neighborhood, and I picked it for its proximity to where I was going and it’s very reasonable price. But it was run down inside. Still, it was clean. The guys at the desk were just as nice as they could be.

Excellent Value
This hotel is an excellent value. The staff is great. We left behind a pair of glasses. They found them and quickly shipped them to us. The location is great. We stayed here for a Beacon Theater show, and many restaurants and bars are within a short walk. Subway station is close by for the 1 train that connects to Penn Station. The small rooms are crammed with furniture, but the space works just fine.

Small but clean room with comfortable twin bed. Basically just a place to sleep, but quiet location and perfectly fine for the price.

Poor 2.0
Small and not so cozy
The room is incredible tiny with no sound proof. you can hear every thing that is being said in the halls as though you're right next to them. The shower pressure is good but the water temp isn't consistent. Good location, would only recommend if you can not find anything else.Photos online are deceiving of what the place is really like.

Stay #2 for a Yankee Vacation
This is my 2nd trip to this property. 2 adults, 1 - 10 year old, and 1 - 15 year old who is an adult in his size. We had 2 rooms with a connecting bathroom. 4 twin beds total - trundle beds! We were in NYC for 2 baseball games and some good food, so a room fit for a king was not needed. However, there was a small table, 2 chairs, a fridge, and microwave - this came in handy when we were too tired to go out and had food from Zabars in the room for a meal - 2 short blocks from hotel. The rooms are small, the beds are small, the rooms are old, the hotel is old, but I did find it clean. Window unit A/C worked well for us. The WIFI was more miss than hit, but the TV was working very well if we needed to be entertained or to check the weather and news. The staff was great. This property has 2 main selling points - location & price. A third, for me, would be 4 twin beds - great for our party. Location - Upper West Side, in a nice quiet neighborhood. 79th St 1 train is a 3 block walk. Yankee Stadium was a 30 minute subway trip and Penn Station was a 10 minute trip. Natural History Museum is an easy walk and Central Park as well. Across the street from the hotel is Riverside Park - a hidden gem to walk. And the my deciding factor - the price. NYC - 4 people, 4 beds, 2 very small rooms, Upper West Side. I would rather spend my money on activities and food and find a cheap, clean, ideally situated hotel, and that is what I have found in this property.

Very good 8.0
I liked the small room. It had the basic things I needed. My only problem was three days that I had smelly sheets placed on my bed. The first night it happened I ignored it because I thought it was just my imagination. The second night I took the sheet off my bed and wrapped up with a towel. The third night I called the front desk in the middle of the night to complain, and they sent me some clean sheets. I had the guy to smell the sheets so he could see that I was not being difficult. My stay was for two weeks, so I had not had this smelly sheet problem before. The first few nights of my stay I did wake up with a few bug bites. The staff was very nice, and the location was excellent. The M5 bus stops right in front of the building on Riverside Drive, and it can take you to Harlem and Downtown Manhattan. That was a plus for me when the trains were unbearable. The air conditioner was a life saver because of the heat wave. It gave me life! They say that this is not a good place for kids, well take it from me, it’s not. There was a baby on my floor that cried a lot. The walls are thin, so the cries of a baby will keep you up at night. Please don’t bring babies here. The elevators are very tiny and slow. I took the stairs a few times because I was just on the 8th floor. The elevators does not look wide enough to fit a wheelchair or those big bulky baby strollers. Overall, I enjoyed my stay. I hope to stay here again in the future.
