Business Trip

The hotel is close by the airport so it makes it great if you just want to rush to rest after a long flight or to get to the airport quickly to make a flight. Overall it was a great experience the only thing I would say negatively would just be that some of the rooms have no working remotes for the TVs. Other than that, awesome across the board!

Decent place for the price!

They always say you get what you pay for right? Well, that's exactly the case for this hotel. Not that that's a bad thing at all. Booked this hotel because it was on the cheaper side, and close to Manhattan pier. Upon arrival unfortunately no one was at the desk to greet us. After waiting for 5 to 10 minutes the desk clerk had come back and informed us we were early to check in and they had NO rooms available. Granted this was our fault because our flight had landed a few hours before their check in time listed on the site, so he let us keep out luggage in the closed off breakfast room while we went to grab a bite to eat. I will say, had he perhaps offered us some towels or something to hang in the pool until a room was available it would have made me feel as tho he actually cared we were booking our rooms there. So had to rate a 2 for staff/service. When we did get a room it had a strong odor at first. Smelt a bit like cleaning products and maybe the carpets got we from moisture from the pool. No big deal....turned the AC on high and left for a couple hours to check out the pier. Was A-ok when we got back. With that said the room was pretty clean, and VERY SPACIOUS! Nice big comfy bed, desk to use if need be, table off to the side, mini fridge and lots of space for hanging clothing if needed. Only problems we had with the room was the shower head being pretty low. If your over 5'7 you most likely will have a few complaints as well. TV wasn't the greatest....but that doesn't matter much if your out and about a lot. Overall I'd say this would be a great hotel to book if your trying to save some cash and want to be close to Manhattan pier and plan to be out most the time. Used uber to book a car to the pier which ended up costing about 6 bucks round trip. Theres a target walking distance (5 minute walk) that also sells wine, beer, and liquor. As well as a couple of fast food spots very short walking distance, and a bar about a 5 minute walk away.

hip hotel in safe area near beach and airport

there is underground parking and everyone is very nice. Room was clean, however, you could clearly see that the flooring needed repair (rust, cracks)...you know a has been hotel. Breakfast was watered down juice and toast, so I passed. Hotel was 70 bucks, but was worth about 45
