Hotel with great location for Broadway access

Excellent location with free parking. Very anonymous service and problems with the bath. The facilities seem distinctly old. Overall adequate experience.

Travel Inn Review

Was happy to find an affordable, safe, clean, and nice room for my son and I on our short trip to NYC. The free parking caught my eye and was a big factor in why we chose Travel Inn. It was easy to find, and located near what we wanted to visit. Thanks to the staff for helping us use public transportation,

Great Location - little Tired

The very friendly staff were ready for our arrival and no forms to fill in, just a signature. The room was clean but very dated. It was ready for renovation, some wallpaper was peeling off, the shower head was hanging out the wall, two bulbs did not work and the heating was too noisy to keep on for long. Nevertheless we enjoyed our three night stay as it was clean an comfortable. The location on 42nd Street could not have been better. Turn a blind eye to these little imperfections and you will have a great time.

Phish and more

Travel Inn was not only a great location for both Broadway show but also for Madison Square Garden! Free parking was a bonus and plan to stay there often.

Great location, hard bed!

For the value, this was hands down worth every penny. Right off the Lincoln Tunnel and a skip to Times Square, with easy access to the Subway and well, everything in NYC. For all the walking you have to do in NYC, it's still important to get a good night's rest, and that was close to impossible on the double size rock hard mattress the hotel provides. Small room, small bathroom - no problem - but I am still massaging my back from the bed. I'd stay again, but bring extra pillows and a comforter for body comfort.

OK place to stay

Initially they gave me a room for smokers although I had requested one (even calling them by phone) for non smokers. They promptly changed my room. The stuff was courteous.
