Pod Times Square

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice efficient use of space. No complaints. Rooms were clean and I will mostly likely stay again.

Nice Hotel....the bed seem like a full size and not queen but it was a nice hotel

The location is wonderful. The views were fantastic ... not the brick wall often found in the city. The room was filled with sunlight. It has great shades that completely block the light. The room was not noisy which is surprising considering the location. I have stayed at both Pod 39 and 51 for years now. The rooms in all 3 are very similar. The Times Sq Pod appeared to be clean but I was not happy about a few items. When I checked in there were green globs on the ledge in the bathroom as well as in the sink. I am assuming they were toothpaste. After the maid cleaned my room on day 2 they were still there. The rug had not been vacuumed. The toilet was dirty. It looks like all she did was make the bed and change the towels. I didn’t let her in for the rest of the stay. I cleaned the bathroom myself. I realize this isn’t an expensive hotel but I think these are basic expectations. One thing that can be a plus or minus is that there is a motion sensor light in the bathroom. I didn’t care for it. I don’t want the light on if I get up in the middle of the night. Even worse it went on/off all night by itself. It woke me up all night. The bathroom is frosted glass so there’s no closing it off. They did send up maintenance who disabled it. There should be an on/off switch for it in the unit. The rest of the nights I slept peacefully on the comfy bed. If it wasn’t for the outstanding location I would have rated this hotel much lower.

We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again

Great location, cute and clean pod rooms with efficient use of space! I also love the Polynesian Lounge!

Easy access and great location. Modern and sleek look.

Good location, modern rooms, a bit impersonal, not comfortable beds.

Great, Allowed me early chckin in at 12pm, gave me free drink ticket. Only issue is that room had a little smoke smel. But other than that it is a good stay.

Trash was not emptied during our stay or fresh towels.

My stay was perfect, perfect location great view, just the staff are not so friendly and helpful, one time one girl was ignoring my questions, to speak with some one who got into the work. They shoul work on this point to be welcomed with customer!

Two blocks from Times Square, clean but small rooms, good value.

It's an alright hotel, only if you're staying for a few nights. We got the bunk pods and there isn't really any sort of kitchen area and there was no place for trash either. Other than that, it's okay to stay at, just don't stay in their bunk pods for long visits.

Great location near everything by walking distance. Excellent customer service

Excellent location, great services such as early luggage drop off or storage, a great concierge, and extremely helpful staff! My only suggestion would be a coffee service in the room or at least downstairs in the lobby! I loved have the restaurant right there under the hotel. The views of the river are super! Can't wait to go back!

Great support staff, etc... we liked the cozy rooms. Only issue was a fault in the fire alarm system...woke up the whole building at 5 am. Fortunately they found it wasnt critical so we didn't have to evacuate. But, very cool place.

Nice place and good staff, good service and great atmosphere
