Great Value Great Location Great Service

Our family did a weekend in the City to see a show and some sites. Easy to get and easy to get out of the city. ALL STAFF were very nice and very accomodating. We had three rooms and they got us all on the same floor very close. Parking is right there which made it simple. This is not a 5 star hotel, but the service is certainly 5 star. Hotel is located just blocks from Times Square and the Theater District. I will definitely stay here again.

so-so

It has a good location within walking distance of Times Square, but for the price, I think it left A LOT to be desired. There was no lobby to speak of other than a couple of chairs, and when we did approach the desk with a cup of Starbucks, they told us we would have to drink our beverages outside as no food or drinks were allowed inside. One good thing was, in spite of the noon check-out, they allowed us to leave our bags and packages in a secure room so we could spend more time in the City without having to lug our bags around. I think it's a good deal if you have a car, which we didn't.

It wasn't a bad stay afterall.

Location-wise, it's perfect if you wanted to stay close to the Port Authority bus terminal, however it's a little far away from the attractions in walking distance. The room we stayed, in general, it's clean except that we found a dead bug on the pillow cover. We were sure if that's bed bug but that just freaked us out. We did not try using the pool and we had not been seeing anyone using the pool. Hair dryer, fridge and a microwave are included. The hair dryer is a bit dirty though it's functional. Afterall, it wasn't a bad stay at all knowing the fact that this is a 3-star hotel and NYC hotels are all expensive.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

This hotel is close to the Port Authority Bus Terminal and it's a little away from the attractions and so in a way, it's comparatively quiet neighborhood.

Great downtown location. Not bad for the price. If you want fancy, you pay extra somewhere else...

The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly and the location was excelled - blocks (minutes) away from Times Square. Really only spent time in the room to shower and sleep, but for the money we saved it was worth the "down-grade" to a less "fancy" hotel in NYC. Not a bad experience at all, but if you want to really "enjoy" your hotel room - you'll have to pay a lot more and stay somewhere else.

Good value with free parking

Room was clean and relatively quiet in a great location, short walking distance to a lot of major attractions in Manhattan. The free parking garage is awesome and accessible at all times, that's a huge advantage.

Good Housekeeping

The hotel is well situated and close to Times Square (short walk away). The room was very clean, comfortable and well equiped with microwave, fridge, ironing board and iron, Ice bucket. There was a good ice machine on the 3rd floor. Towels changed daily. Would recommend to anyone for a good clean hotel. Not particularly modern, but the Staff were friendly and efficient at all times. A very enjoyable stay at the Travel Inn. The hotel recommended the 'Theatre Row Diner' and this was very pleasant, good homecooked food and well run, also very reasonable prices. Well worth a try. Best wishes to all at the 'Travel Inn'. Thank you for a lovely stay in New York. The Richards Family(4)

Yes, it was relatively inexpensive, but...

It is a bare-bones experience with some small details missing (no hook on bathroom doors) and bigger accidents (leaking AC unit resulted in a huge wet spot on the carpet, which was not remedied by the staff)

quick trip to nyc

good location and decent for the price. other than the mattresses being more like a sheet of plywood it wasn't too bad. A good nights sleep would've made the trip much better.
