For free I take

I use this hotel as it is reasonably close to the theater district, is fairly inexpensive & has free park yourself parking. However, I find that there is an odor in the place & I have a bit of difficulty with the steep step at the front & even the ramps by the garage. However, it is an OK value for the money.

Normal Manhattan Booking

Free Parking is good. But wifi is not free and payable only in cash. I forget to bring enough cash so I stayed with no internet. This is not convenience.

Great price and free parking !

Very basic hotel.....only toiletries were shampoo, soap and body lotion.....no shower cap, body wash,etc.. Nothing in the lobby, but, in terms of being near the theatre district and restaurant row on 9th Ave., it was a great location. Bring earplugs because it is directly across the street from the Police Station and just a half block from a youth hotel/club, where tons of young people stay outside and talk very loudly until 3 or 4 in the AM.

Free parking and close to Times Square

We stayed for one night here as a family getaway. Free parking at the hotel! Usually nonexistent in NYC. The pool was superb. Warm temperature, clean and right next to our room. There is a small diner next door that we ate at for breakfast. Decent price and good food. Definitely will stay again if traveling to the city.

Large Comfortable Room, Tiny Bathroom, Noisy Location!

As you already know the price of hotels in NYC is absolutely ridiculous....accordingly this hotel offered a large comfortable room, but the bathroom was tiny! The sink basin area is so compact that it was difficult to even shave without my elbows hitting the wall! The hotel location is convenient but noisy from nearby construction and the train tracks running underneath the hotel. Through By NYC standards this place is a real palace! Convenient affordable restaurant next door with many excellent breakfast menu choices!

Location! Location! Location!

We live in Staten Island. We wanted to stay in the hotel by Times Sq because we had a special dinner for valentine's day in that area and we didn't want to go back all the way to Staten Island lol but also we didn't want to spend a lot of money on hotel so we decided w decent one by Times Sq. The room was nice and clean, the kids liked the bath tub. It was nice stay w the price. And the Location is Great!! CVS was across the street from the hotel so it was very convenient.

Great weekend

This Hotel might not be a 5 five star but for the price we paid, It sure is a 5 star. Free parking, clean room, friendly staff and 4 blocks away from Time square is all we needed. I will recommend this place to friends and family and will be back. Thank you.

location and value- GREAT DEAL!

This hotel has a pool, a limited gym but a gym nonetheless, microwaves and refrigerators in the room. If you smoke(I dont but my spouse does), they have smoking rooms. They have internet access but the downside is that they bill $6 from 12 noon to noon the next day, They bill the same if you ask at 8am and only get 4 hours from the day before...but it is only 6 bucks. The staff is efficient but some seem more robotic than human. BUT THE VALUE AND LOCATION IS GREAT. Just a block from Theater Row on 42nd ST.
