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!

Conveniently located and very decent price for NY

The best thing I liked about this hotel was very cordial staff who were always ready to help, be it providing local information or booking a taxi to the airport early in the morning. Rooms were clean, but there was cigarette smoke odor coming from one of the neighboring rooms which was slightly irritating at times as I am a non-smoker. The hotel is conveniently located near subway station with access to trains that take you directly to downtown Manhattan which is a huge plus. The area looked pretty safe.

Clean, quiet, safe

We stayed here and found it to be clean and quiet. It was a typical Best Western and met our standards of a nice, inexpensive place to sleep. We spent most of the time in Manhatten and the subway was only a 10 minute walk and then another 40 minutes or so to the heart of NYC. We spent the entire days there and walked back late at night and felt very safe. Close by is a grocery store and a few fast food places to eat. They did provide a typical breakfast that was more than adequate for our stay: cereal, muffins, bagels, danish, hard boiled eggs. toast, waffles, juice, coffee, fruit.

Not recommended

Old aminities, poor quality breakfast (nothing to eat). No even eggs.... Very frustrated. Almost unreachable if you do not use your own transportation. Cigarette smell was all around this place, even in non-smoking rooms. Do NOT recommend to a friend.

Greatest location near the Airport

Very nice stay, not far from the public transportation to go to Manhattan and near the JFK. Loved it! The stuff is nice. Good breakfast. Clean. Had a good time.

Hello! Waffles

The hotel is good. It's convenient to all, most especially subway w/in walking distance. I have a comment to one of the staff who works from the breakfast room. I believed that manners is the key to customer service. She needs to learn how to talk good language to the guest. If a guest make a mistake in making waffles, Do you say, "you don't what you're doing"! I felt you're insulted from making waffles! It's a shame!, however, when my sister in-law gave her $5 as a tip, she immediately changed her attitude. WOW! As I said attitude is the key to long lasting relationship.

Fair at best

The hotel was okay over all. The only thing is the room smells. The room smells damp. The hall way and passage way was narrow. I like their breakfast items, but the room is small too. There was 4 people in our party, it was very crowded on account of the room isn't very big. The area around the hotel does not have a lot of choices of restaurant or shops.

Best Western Jamica Inn is ok

Rooms are a little bit small but acceptable. The front desk stuff is friendly. However, the house keeper threw up my mom's cosmetic pack which she put in the bathroom counter(I hope it's just accidentally happened), did bother my mom for a while. The front desk stuff is kind to offer toothbrush, tooth paste etc but my mom has more than that in her cosmetic pack. The location is not bad but still takes 15 minutes walk to subway. Q60 bus (the one close to hotel) is available but not frequently available.
