Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Welshman2 Not what it seems
This was super for a stop over at JFK. Had a bit of a wait to check in
only one person on the desk at 7pm (but the guest in front of us did want a lot) after a while another member of staff joined we were then dealt with with great professionalism (hope Clarisa enjoyed her cruise). It was managers special evening so we had a few free beers what a great idea.
Breakfast we were unable to take up because of a 5am depart from hotel, but we were offered a breakfast bag.
2 Points (please remember I'm from the UK)
1) Hard to make tea in our room as we do not like coffee.
2) corridors a bit smelly (dated)
But this is a person opinion - we will rebook with this hotel as for us the staff with great - Well done all we came into contact with and those we did not

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cdudley Another great experience!!!
Totally enjoyed our stay. Used to live in Queens many many years ago and this time we were able to go back to my "hood"... tried last year but had to change plans due to "Sandy" The great time started when we arrived at the Hotel... our driver wasn't sure if we were at the right Holiday Inn, so i went inside to speak with the front desk to see if we had reservations there.... I was looked after immediately and so friendly, I would have changed my reservations to this Holiday Inn.... if we weren't booked there!!! Couldn't do enough for us.... calling us to see if we wanted a refrigerator, asking us if we needed them to call a cab....giving us ideas for evening dining establishments... even printing out directions for us to use to find my way back the old neighborhood. Not just the front staff (Thanks Amanda), but all the staff who looked after us... We totally enjoyed the "managers reception"... what a great way for travelers to meet other travelers as well as some of the hotel staff......and to actually speak openly to the manager.....We will definately be returning to this Holiday Inn, as we felt more than just welcomed, but almost like family......

Just what you need when you have only 1 night to sleep before another flight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FoggyT Convenient location with good staff
I took taxi from JFK. Just ten minutes and 12USD. Much easier than taking the train. Arrived before noon but the staff was friendly and efficient. Only ten minutes wait and the room was ready.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Albert35 Guest traffic flow
Although not directly inconvenienced, the traffic flow through the breakfast area at peak periods had my attention. Guests/luggage trundling between the elevators, mixing with breakfast patrons plus the occasional laundry delivery waggon and some tradesmen/equipment, creating bottlenecks. Food for thought.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HawaiiJP Perfect for day before flying out JFK
Front desk staff were extremely helpful, friendly and cheerful. Got a recommendation for a good Italian restaurant close by and it was fabulous. Room was clean, comfortable and surprisingly very quiet even though next to freeway. Included breakfast was not the usual one with hotel but better with hot entrees but still not quite restaurant quality. We will be staying again next time we fly out JFK.

Close to airport so we didn't have to fight on the NY freeways to get to the airport in the a.m. Room was quite other than hearing toilets flush. Did the job for the night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda09 Perfect for a short stay in NYC
I am so happy I decided to stay at the JFK holiday inn express. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming, they greeted me by name and checked in to make sure I was enjoying my stay. The room was large, and the bed felt amazing after a long flight. The morning shuttle to the airport was on time and made getting to the airport stress free. I'd definitely stay there again if I was passing through NYC!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tuna5 Clean & friendly
Cannot express what a nice experience we had. This hotel's staff is top-notch. They really make you feel at home and are there to help you with any needs. The hotel and room were immaculate. Having lived in the area previously was a little leery on what we would find but instead it was a beautifully decorated and clean place. Also the room was exceptionally quite for being near a big airport. Airpark next door makes it a great place to stay and leave your car while you are away.

accommodation is very basic but the great staff makes up for any lack of comfort. everyone was very courteous and really got out of their way to help. The hotel is recommended for anyone who needs to stay a night at the airport. Good value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beckysue Room was quiet and confortable
We arrived at JFK around 12:30AM and the shuttle was there in a very timely manner. The front desk staff was friendly and welcoming. We only stayed one night but the hotel was totally to our satisfaction.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by claireny116 excellent customer service, comfy room.
We stayed overnight as a cheap place to stay near airport.
Shuttle bus prompt and friendly, hotel staff very friendly happy, knowledgeable. Excellent customer service.
Room very comfortable. Small stains on the bed linen which was a shame and door to room didn't seem overly secure but there is deadbolt on the inside.
Guests were noisy in the night but not hotel fault.
Breakfast was good. Nice choice but very busy. Couldn't get a seat at first.
All in all very happy, would recommend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TechnoGality Looks are deceiving!
This location is in a scary, express highway surrounding. Easy to miss the road to go directly to the hotel, and get lost in the trailer truck parking lot.
The other cons are that this location is a bit dated and worn out. Eating area is strange, cafeteria-like with no privacy. Weird elevator set up to the rooms.
The pros are that the front desk staff are super friendly and helpful. And unbelievably, this location has the BEST pillows from any other hotel I've stayed in! Too bad I couldn't sleep in. :)

We arrived late and left very early for our flight. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They had breakfast to-go bags ready for us when we left in the morning. Close to JFK so very convenient, but iffy area if you plan to leave the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laligirl7 Outstanding overall service, highly recommend!
This hotel provided outstanding service. Cindie at the front desk was very sweet and helpful. She gave us excellent recommendations and made checking in and checking out fast and easy. Ron the driver for the shuttle had such a cheerful disposition making our travels to and from airport pleasant and less stressful. The room was spacious and had all the necessary amenities for a relaxing atmosphere. I also loved the goodie bag and welcoming letter, it added to my stay here. This hotel also has a small cafeteria on the first floor where they have complimentary hot tea, and coffee for their guests, which came in handy after a long flight! Thanks for everything, I highly recommend this place to anyone.

Great value for money, you never go wrong with holiday inn. Great location, access and service. On the night we arrived there were some noisy guest near our room, but that was for few minutes, which is not the hotel fault. A+++++ I would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nikkih123 Friendly staff and great service
The hotel is easy to get to from JFK, staff were very helpful and friendly, the hotel was very clean, lots of choice of breakfast, plenty of free food, nice welcome pack in the hotel room, and nice modern room. The only downfall was that we booked a queen bed for 3 of us, which we found too small so one of us had to sleep on the pull out sofa bed which wasn't very comfy. Other than that I would definitely recommend the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keith123 Comfortable bed ,great service and good facilities
This was our second stay. There is now much improved service all round from last year..we chose this hotel because it was so near JFK for a next day early flight with free transfers 24/7 every half an hour from early in the morning...so no worrying about getting to the airport on time..booked flights on line at the hotel and they had a printer to print out the boarding passes.....breakfast is now served very early to suit all tastes..our only complaint is that we weren't there long enough to enjoy the hotel comforts more..staff were all lovely and helpful..would definitely stay again...We did find our ny taxi drivers had difficulty this hotel is so a good idea to take a copy of the address so that the taxi driver can put it into their sat nav..All round an excellent experience
