Brilliant Experience

Having read a number of reviews on this hotel before we arrived I knew what to expect. The staff were as good as expected and the location to Times Square was ideal for our trip. The included breakfast was good and wifi was included. We asked the staff about finding a pub which showed the 6 nations rugby and within about an hour they were knocking our room door with a 3 page print out of the pubs that might show it with descriptions and contacts for each around Manhattan. The room was clean and functional and if you arrange your luggage well the small size of the room can be managed. This is the only reason I have scored a 4 for room comfort. The location to Times Square means that your not going to get the quietest night sleep due to horns and sirens going through the night. For me this added to the experience of staying in New York and as the bed was so comfortable it was easy to drift in and out of sleep when I wasn't going to the window to see what was going on. For me this offered an ideal location and excellent service. If you can overlook the small room and live with the noise at night then you can't go wrong, particularly at the excellent rates they charge. We will be staying here on our next trip to New York.

Good Location, Closet size room

This hotel is one of the cheaper hotels walking distance to Times Square. The rooms are super tiny however and really made for one person. Luckily I was with my husband so we made it work. I would have gave the review higher scores just because the continental breakfast was decent except there was a long hair on the tub and some on the comforter. The staff gave me a new blanket when I complained & the rest of the room appeared be clean but could have def looked better.

short stay

the room was adequate but very hot - had to turn on the ac to try to be comfortable. I didn't have much interaction with the staff but they were courteous when I did speak to them.

Econo Lodge Times Square

Location for Broadway and Times Square is very good, other than that there is really nothing great about this place. There is a bar across the street which is open until 4:00am, noise all night plus noise from constant traffic all night. The room is very tiny, it's good for people who are not more than 3 ft. tall. There are really no ammenities. Myself and the three other people I was with would never go back there.

Beware....you get what you pay for

This was by far the worst hotel stay I've had in NYC. When we checked in for a 3-night stay, the hotel overbooked and had to move us to another hotel for night 2 and back to Econo Lodge for night 3. The staff did not make accommodations in getting our luggage to the other hotel leaving us to haul our luggage 5 blocks away. We didn't get a credit for the inconvenience just a "We are sorry." The rooms are tiny and do not comfortably fit two people. I had to move aside so that a friend could get by in the room. The room and bathroom are stuffy, hot and not comfortable whatsoever. The price was cheap and I guess you get what you pay for. I will never stay at this place again.

Cheap, good location

The hotel was a few blocks away from Times Square, and there are many food places just downstairs. The room is really small (couldn't find space to open my luggage) but amenities are decent. There are safes provided in the cupboard, would appreciate if it was bigger (to place my laptop in it). I would also appreciate a more spacious area at least to open up our luggages. There's free breakfast provided (right in front of the counter). Food like croissants, tarts, yogurt, bread, hot tea/coffee, milk and orange juice. Saves you a meal. There's however only one table provided, and many other chairs. On a whole it was decent, I stayed there for 2 nights and was quite happy about it.

NYC in a long weekend

We arrived from the airport at 9 a.m. They allowed us to check in early. When we experienced a plumbing problem the second day, they fixed it IMMEDIATELY! The front desk as well as maintenance and cleaning ladies were all extremely helpful answering all our "I've never been to NYC" questions without making us feel stupid. Yes, the rooms are very small but all we did was sleep so it wasn't a problem!
