Very good 8.0
Overall good
Great location everything more or less on your door step. The room is quiet small but it’s perfect for two people since you don’t spend much time in it. The room is very clean! Road works throughout the night so the room is as very loud.

Poor 2.0
although a small size of rooms expected, I feel like this would be a jail if I got into. Hard to feel comfortable in the room. Had to get out of the room as soon as sunrise.

Good 6.0
Room was so small (could barely open a suitcase) and warm. It is fine if you are looking for cheap accommodation in New York, it’s clean, just very basic. Location is good!
Kim, ie2 night trip
Good 6.0
Clean but too small
I booked this hotel based on the reviews. We stayed for 4 nights, the room was so small there was barely room for our suitcase. The hotel is clean and the staff were very nice and helpful but with the room being so small it was not very comfortable. The heater was extremely noisy also, there was an air conditioning unit right outside our window which meant there was a constant loud noise from it also. The bed was too small for 2 adults and the bedclothes also too small which left you cold in the middle of the night. I had to get up and put my jumper on. It is not as close to times square as i had thought either.

Good 6.0
Our experience at this location was OK. The POD on 39th street is better; it has better service and a better accommodation and style. Upon arrival at this location, we found out that there was an issue with our reservation. The front desk was not helpful in trying to rectify the problem. We ended up solving the problem amongst family members. The room was clean. I would not return to this location.
