My first room had dirty sheets, in general the hotel was dirty but for $65/ night I guess you get what you pay for. The front desk seemed incompetent and generally did not care with my happiness or lack there of. When I asked for towels they told me I had to wait until the morning!

I've stayed at this hotel more than twenty times and I have never had any problems with it. One thing I had issues with this time, is that there is new ownership now! They were very welcoming, kind and knew what they had to do. My issue is that the language barrier with them isn't a 100%. Calling the front desk was hard to do because I can barely understand them. They should definitely hire someone who has better ( English ) speaking ability!! They should also think about having complimentary breakfast for theyre guests. The prices for the rooms are kind of high and nothing to offer us but the room!!! Other than that I like staying there! Venere thank you for your services! I will definitely be using you again.

It definitely wasn't one of my better stays. I was on the 4th floor and the only ice maker that worked was on the 1st floor.

The only negative comment I have is that the decor and furniture in the room were rather dark and gave a heavy feeling. Apart from that the place is really fine and the room has everything you could need. It is conveniently placed for La Guardia or Newark airports and close to Manhattan. It is much cheaper than a hotel in New York and I would definitely stay there again.

The front desk receptionist is very unfriendly. And the quote shows including breakfast, but actually it is not offered.
