Best Western Jamaica Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was a nice option. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was close to freeways, the airport, and the subway which made it easy for me to use public transportation as well as Lyft. The hotel staff was courteous and extremely helpful.

Got asked to leave because of my daughters PTSD and we left. But they refused to refund the day we did not use. There was a special friend of the manager that stays there for 50 dollars a night and they give him special treatment. They favor males over females.

My experience to the hotel is good lm recommend to my friend yesp

We spent one night here after having arrived on an evening international flight and before heading down to Manhattan the following morning. The hotel is situated near several train stations, with good connections. There are several restaurants nearby within easy walking distance. The room was clean and comfortable with free wifi. Breakfast was excellent I must agree with previous comments praising Ms Uma, she did a wonderful job. Everything was well stocked and fresh, no issue with the coffee machine either. Overall a great stay, we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Clean efficient good sized rooms less than 5 mikes from JFK. Nice staff. Not the Ritz but perfect stayover hotel and best bargain near JFK I found. Only thing is the noise, as you're very close to the Van Wyck Expressway. But you get used to it.

The only thing good about this hotel is the staff. The hotel smelled morning and night of marijuana and mold. The room was dirty, dirty enough where I looked for bed bugs (there were none). Sheets smelled moldy. Location is sketchy and I didn't feel safe outside

Very good and helpful staff. Hotel has all the basic qualities for a business trip.

Special thanks to Andrew for helping with my situation. Uma was great and attentive during breakfast when I was there and very friendly. The place is great to sleep at from a long day in Manhattan and subway E is very convient and close by like a 10 min walk.

Staff friendly & nice - good breakfast. Hotel very old - carpet OLD & very wavy on floor. Worst of all the graffiti noise made it impossible to sleep!!

Very polite and accomodating staff. I would stay there again when I visit family.

pleasant experience, clean hotel and above average breakfast included. Overall very satisfied with the hotel for the time of stay.

It has been a good experience. Even though I did not expend to much time in hotel. Staff was always willing to help and give directions to move in the city.

Very nice service and good timing for free breakfe

Clean, basic room for a short stay. Easy check-in and check-out. Free wifi was a plus. Overall pleased with this hotel.

Staff is very nice, helpful, and professional. We enjoyed the room, and love the continental breakfast. We have stayed 2 times so far, and looking forward to returning soon...

Clean room with friendly staff. Was a great value and we were happy with everything.

We stayed in the jacuzzi suite which was in the basement. There was a pool nearby (I believe on the same floor) which left the rooms/corridor musty. It's a pretty old hotel so if you are use to modern, boutique hotels, this is so not for you.

Not bad hotel.. Probably wouldn't go again. Room was dated-- nothing new. Tiny tv-- probably a 32 inch or smaller. Just for sleep, it was okay. Don't know why seemed like people (families) in the lobby all hours of the night. Service was very good though, and that's important

Friendly staff and clean rooms. Also big plus that it is right off the highway.
