Welcome to BEST WESTERN Jamaica Inn! Guests at our Jamaica hotel enjoy being close to campuses including St. Johns University and Queens College, and we cater to a number of visitors to York College as well as NYC tourists. When you have proximity to airports like JFK and LaGuardia as well as public transportation to Manhattan (NYC), your trip to the City just got a little easier and more affordable. Whether youre here for an event at Citi Field, Jamaica and Queens General Hospitals, or to attend a lecture at one of the universities, the seemingly little things like free parking and friendly service can make all the difference. Take advantage of proximity to cities including NYC, Staten Island and Brooklyn, or rest assured that it wont take long to get to some of the local attractions from the Empire State Building to Central Park. Theres always something exciting happening at Arthur Ashe Stadium, and a day at the Belmont Racetrack cant be beat. Try your luck at the Resort World® Casino where world class entertainment can be found, or plan a romantic trip to Flushing Meadows Corona Park where ice skating in the winter, boating in the warmer months and biking year-round take place. Even those in town for business with the American Red Cross local office or who have an appointment at Queens County Court find it necessary to slip away for a little fun. There are many airline personnel and construction workers who also call our Jamaica hotel their home away from home. Close to Times Square and Midtown Manhattan, its easy to plan the NYC vacation of your dreams. Take in a Broadway show, stroll around Greenwich Village or head to Chelsea to try some of the best pastries in the country. Endless dining and shopping options are at your fingertips, and getting around the city affordably via public transportation has never been easier. Reserve your room at BEST WESTERN Jamaica Inn, close to the heart of NYC, right now!

Great hotel at wonderful rate!

Great room rate, excellent breakfast, first class room, FREE PARKING, worth going 5 miles further to get away from seedy Queens hotel neighborhoods. Hallway smelled weird (not musty or moldy) but the room did not smell at all.

Good Experience

The hotel was very close to the highway. So, we could hear noises in the night (not too bad though). Apart from that, everything including the location, breakfast, cleanliness etc were good. The subway was just 7 mins away. We went to Manhattan & 'US Open - Flushing Meadows', and we had connecting trains from there!

Nice place

This was a nice place to stay in Queens. Not far from the subway and you can walk to it. There is always someone at the desk to help you and guide you, the staff could be a bit more knowledgeable but, all in all good value

Great NYC vacation

This location is about a 40 minute metro ride to Rockefeller Center. To get to the metro you have about a .4 mile walk across a pedestrian bridge which can look a little shady at night, but there is a police station located in the metro stop and my husband and I never had any issues. We spent 3 days nights at the hotel and spent the days in the city. The hotel also accommodated us by allowing us to check in an hour and a half early. Our room was very clean, but for a non-smoking room it definitely had a mild smoke smell. The employees were very polite and did a nice job of cleaning. The morning breakfast was very good with many choices available, including a waffle maker. There wasn’t much to do at the hotel itself, but its proximity to the city is pretty good. The parking lot at the hotel was small, but we had no problem finding a parking space. Overall, it was a great trip and the hotel was a part of that.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The metro is definitely the way to go to get to the city. It is very easy to get to and around the city this way. We used the unlimited ride 7 day pass, even though we were going to be there for only 4 days. We definitely got our money's worth!

hotel Location

My experience was great, all the employees were great and very helpful. Great breakfast everyday. The rooms were very clean. The location of the hotel is great for access to freeways and subway. It's not the Hilton and neither are the rates. I plan on returning again.
