Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lw59 Excellent in every way - except for the noisy air conditioning
Really excellent for the price point, and incredibly conveniently located. There is no spot on Manhattan that is easier to get to by cab from JFK, being right by the bridge. Essentially "no frills", but very comfortable, and in many way the "basic" facilities are superior to those in many more NYC hotels, in which your room would be half the size and the location appalling. There are also a number of great bars and restaurants in the area, including Schillers which is open until 3am on Friday and Saturday nights, meaning you can get food and a drink when you arrive even if you land in JFK at midnight!
The only issue is the incredibly noisy heaters/air conditioners, which (in my latest room at least) can't be entirely disabled. This is a major issue with this hotel (and I have stayed here several times, in a number of different rooms, always with the same problem). If/when this issue is fixed, it will once again become my favourite bargain hotel in NYC.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by weloveNY Excellent service and comfort
This hotel is clearly designed to provide excellent accommodation at an affordable price. The rooms are small but are comfortable and well designed, with excellent electric and electronic fittings. The bathrooms are impressively good. The hotel will provide a mini-fridge at a small extra cost. All in all, great value for money. The staff were very friendly and efficient and were happy to go out of their way to be helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert816 Best Holiday inn in NYC
The room looked like it was new. The bed was beyond words. The bed was so good, that I had to take pictures of the tag because my wife wants that same setup at home.
Linens and towels were fresh and soft. internet just worked and was included which is always a plus. Everything about this place just worked. Oh and the subway is one block away. what else can you ask for.
