Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jcastro805 Great value for visiting NYC on the cheap
I wanted to find a quality hotel on Staten Island for myself, my wife, and two cousins so that we could explore Manhattan on the cheap. This hotel was great for that purpose: hundreds less per night than a hotel on Manhattan, plus free shuttle service to the Staten Island Ferry, which provided great views of the Statue of Liberty and brought us to Downtown Manhattan (right off the Red Line subway) for free.
The front staff were extremely helpful, and the complementary breakfast offered a variety of choices (even an automatic pancake maker). The room was clean and comfortable, if not a little small for 4 adults, and provided excellent views from the 5th floor. I will definitely consider staying here again when traveling back to NYC.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shaw5612 Excellent place to stay
Everything is near perfect. The pancake maker had little problem when we used it. Bottom line is that if we come to the Staten Island, we will stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PlusTax Fine for a Stop Over
I stayed hear with my family just for one night as stop over on the way to cape cod. The hotel is going through refurbishment at the moment so it may explain why the room was a bit smelly and seemed to be in need of an update.
Staff and breakfast were very good and cant be faulted.
The local area is a bit on the rough side with not much around but easy to get on and off the interstate.
I'm sure the rooms will be fresher after the refurb is complete making it a worthwhile longer stop in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guest002 A Great Choice
I was very pleased with my stay at Holiday Inn Express Staten Island West. We drove up from Charlotte and when we first got off the interstate exit for the hotel, I was a little nervous about the choice. Nothing big- just cosmetically different neighborhood from where we normally stay. However, it turned out to be a real gem. The staff were great, the free shuttle to the Staten Island Ferry was fabulous and the free breakfast was really good. The room was clean and had nice décor. I think I made the best choice of places to stay when visiting NY city. Come, stay and enjoy!

Very quiet rooms, located to a 15 min to the ferry to NY city, help you to avoid all the trafic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jayvel What a treat!!!
We had a wonderful stay at this property July 26 and 27. The staff were very friendly, efficient, and really knew what they were doing. We were treated well as an IHG member. Breakfast had complete selection. The rooms smelled so fresh and were so clean. The beds, pillows, and sheets were the usual 'Holiday Inn' quality that I really treasure and always gives us a good nights rest after a long busy day in New York city. This property is so convenient if you are going to Manhattan using the free shuttle going to the free Staten Island Ferry Terminal. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family and will come back again knowing how we will be treated.

My family and I recently stayed at this hotel and our initial welcome by Maria was great , warm and inviting. She was very knowledgeable in providing us with where to eat and attractions. I think Liedel the manager provided us with 3 day passes for LA fitness. Overall the stay was excellent and rooms were very clean. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MSMomof2 Disabled mom will be prepared next time
I stayed there with my two young sons, and my mother overnight on 7/19. They swiped my card for incidentals at check in, and that's where the trouble started. All monies were removed from my card. When I went to the store, after the party we went to , to buy diapers and juice, my card was declined. I was on the phone nearly 2 hrs, after a desk clerk named Matt told me if I didn''t call the bank then, that I'd be out of luck with getting my money. I was 2 hrs from home, and carry little cash with me. I got the monies reversed, and ran out to get food, and diapers that night. I was so stressed I barely ate, or slept. Before check out, I noticed the 25.00 they're supposed to hold when you check in was removed. Why couldn't they do that to begin with? then to tell me I'd be out of luck? I was mortified to say the least. I had my husband come from home to follow me, and make sure I had no further issues with my card. Stress is not good for anyone, and this further aggravated my health issues. I'd have to be really enticed to even think about coming back here again. My advice,pay in cash, and have a back up emergency card for incidentals. Nobody should go through that.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lad23 Adequate hotel, near baseball fields
Maria at check-in was extremely helpful and personable. I asked numerous questions and she was very polite and informative while answering each one. I used the free shuttle to the Staten Island Ferry, as did much of our group, and spent Saturday in Manhattan, without having to drive there, which was a huge plus. Unfortunately, part of the reason we went into Manhattan Saturday, was because there really was no common area for our party to socialize and no pool in which the kids could expend energy. The lobby is small. I do believe that they have an agreement with LA Fitness across the way to use their facilities, but it was not that convenient , in m opinion. For our purposes, and short stay , it was adequate, but it would be a tough room/hotel in which to spend a lot of time. The rooms were on the small side, and rather dark.
The service during our stay could not have been better, though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FABSIS3 Small but fine
Although the rooms are on the small size, it was fine for sleeping. Stayed mainly for the complimentary shuttle to the ferry. It is a 25 min ride minimum to the ferry. There was some miscommunication between staff and shuttle driver, but we got there and back on both days....so it worked out.

I love FREE amenities. I have not used the shuttle, but its great knowing that it is available. I really appreciate being able to park the car in a safe lot where security checks the plates. This is all done gratis. You can use the internet in your room at no cost. I am Platinum. Just sign up for their IHG credit card. That too comes with numerous perks. Let's not forget the fabulous breakfast included in the cost of the room. The staff is wonderful. They always go out of their way to assist you and answer any questions. This is a wonderful hotel. I am so glad I found it. This will always be my go to hotel when on the Island.

Staff are great.
Hotel is clean.
Rooms are on the small side - but the furnishings are laid out well. I traveled with a family of four so it was a little more cramped than for most travelers (we have two teenage boys...)
Beds are not the most comfortable in the IHG group.

I stayed at this hotel from 30Jun-05July with my family. I loved the friendly staff comfortable room ( even though the rooms were bit small)not to mention the good breakfast and my favorite was the cinnamon melt. Children loved it too. I would stay at this hotel when ever I visit NYC .

We had a wonderful time at your hotel. We found the location easy and loved how we could park in the hotel parking lot. We spoke with the manager and she was very professional, extremely knowledgeable about her staff, her hotel services and her community. We definitely would love to stay at your hotel next time we visit NY!

My only regret about this hotel was the shuttle service to the ferry does not run on Mondays and Tuesdays. That's the only days we were there and driving to the Staten Island Ferry is challenging to say the least.

The staff at the Staten Island HIE are terrific. They alway take great care of me. They take a personal interest in my stay and always ask if they can do anything to make my stay more enjoyable. They know my preferences and always pay attention to the fiber details that make you feel welcome when you come.

I must say that not only is the Staff at the Staten Island Holiday Inn Express extremely friendly, professional and attentive but they are always accomodating of my needs. On this trip I mentioned at breakfast that my air conditioning was not as cool as usual. The staff member made a call up to maintenance and by the time I was done eating my room was chilly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sjexpress not room we reserved
We booked a non smoking room well in advance of our stay. We checked in and went to the room. There was an immediate smell of cigarette smoke in the room. It was terrible. Contacted front desk who said they could not change our room because the hotel was full. They sent up housekeeping who agreed the room had a definite odor and sprayed air freshner. That did really nothing to help!
We managed to stay the one night but even after we left, our clothes and other belongings that were not even taken out of the suitcase stunk like cigarette smoke. Everything had to be washed. Really disgusting.
We also asked for a discount due to the inconvenience and were told that since we booked thru a website, they could not help us.
Would not recommend a hotel to others if you are concerned about getting the room reserved. Apparently they don't care.

My mother was stranded at the Newark airport because she missed her connecting flight to London. I booked this hotel for my mother and the staff went above and beyond to help me in the situation !! I would specially recommend staff member names " Holly" , she set up a cab ride for my mom and made sure she was we'll taken care off. She also arranged for a late checkout so she wouldn't have to stay at the airport too long! This hotel has great service and next time I am Newark and defiantly going to stay at holiday day inn express!!
