“Great hotel - Especially for the Price”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

There are many positive reviews, so it should be a no brainer that this is a good hotel. Other than a few cons; such as the rooms having a bit of an "old" look to them, and if you get a room in the back, you may hear a train passing by periodically. Also, the bathroom was small.

Other than that, this is a very solid hotel. First off, free parking. An extreme luxery in Manhattan. Very few hotels have that. You're about a 15 minute walk to Times Square, as well as the subway, meaning virtually anywhere in the city can be reached in decent time. In addition to being near Times Square, you also have the oppurtunity to have a more "New York" feel around the hotel itself, without the ritzy, touristy Times Square area. Also, all amenities worked great, the beds were comfortable and always a plus, the TV had great picture.

Obviously for the great price you can get this hotel for, don't expect a luxerious 5 star hotel, but I'd personally rather save big $ on a hotel and explore NYC, rather than sit around a plush hotel room. This place will not disappoint you.

This is my second time that I've booked at this hotel and I was still not disappointed. It's pretty hard to be disappointed for a well-priced hotel with free parking (parking can be 35$ a day in NYC). The thing is, is that you need to be a quad occ. to make it a good price. A would say that the hotel is basic and nothing was not good. I went to this hotel maybe 6 years ago and got a room that was with an entry outside (the room of the door was outside the main building, around the outside pool which makes the hotel look like a motel sort of. That room was a little damp and older, but maybe since then, they done renovations.

I even shipped a parcel to the hotel, and they received it (at first, the person from security didn't remember receiving it, but then confirmed the name of the person who had signed for it, and then remembered...).

You also need to book at this hotel in advance and with its 24hr cancellation policy, it's worth booking in advance and just cancelling if you're not leaving to NY finally. Last minute bookings at this hotel must be impossible. I always book directly on their website and get the best rate.

This hotel is literally 2-3 blocks from Times Square and maybe a block from the bus terminal. I couldn't ask for better for the same price.

To finish, I think it would of costed us the same price to stay in a hostel further so you really get the best price for a greatly located hotel in NY. Nothing luxurious, but the basic (anyways, do you stay in NY for the hotel or to be in the city?!!) Oh and there's a 7eleven and a Duane Right a block away!

Room Tip: Ask for a room inside the main building and not on the outside balconies around the pool area.

We went just before Christmas with a large group of friends and we stayed a full week at the Travel Inn. We all liked the hotel. Surely not a luxury venue, but we found all we needed: clean rooms, good heating, nice staff. The best thing is that the hotel is 5-10 min walking distance to Times Square, close to all transportation. We really enjoyes our stay and definitely would go back - I would recommend to anyone. The fact the hotel doesnt provide breakfast allowed us to discover the renown deli places serving yummy pancakes and delicious cappuccinos. And: room rates are lowest in Manhattan ;)

I spent 6 nights at the Travel Inn with my son in mid-December.

First impressions were great, very welcoming reception area, warm and festive looking, check-in was fast and efficient. Reception staff were helpful but not over friendly. After having read some negative comments regarding staff attitude I was expecting worse but it really was no problem at all.

We were directed to the lift and made our way up to our room where we encountered our first problem. I had emailed ahead to ask for a quiet-ish room to find we had been given a room facing 42nd street. It was very noisy and on being in the room for just 5 mins, I realised there was no way we would have had a peaceful sleep so back down to reception we went.

Our room was changed with no bother at all and our second room was in the 'older' part of the hotel - motel style rooms that surround the outdoor pool. We found it to be clean, well appointed, great fridge and microwave that we used most days but a very dated bathroom which could really do with updating. Two comfortable double beds and a lovely flat screen TV (could have done with a channel list though!). No real complaints - brilliant maid service too. One thing to note is that you had to run the shower for a good 10 minutes before you got any hot water out of it, might have been the time of year though??

After the first night we started to feel the cold in the room. This was probably down to the fact that the heating in these rooms is pretty ancient looking and that you actually have to exit the main hotel itself to reach your front door so you are not benefitting from the heat in the main hotel. I rang down to reception to be told that the heating was on an automated system and when it dropped below 40 degrees we would get heat!! Not ideal and we spent that evening watching TV under our bedding! Thankfully the following night the temperature dropped and we got heating!! Not ideal in winter but I can imagine that these rooms are lovely during the summer.

The next issue that we came across was the paper thin walls as mentioned by others. For the first couple of days we had two ladies who woke me up at 6am chatting. After that a family moved in with a young child who didn't stop talking/shouting from the hours of 7pm to 10pm - we were glad they left after just two nights!

During our stay we had need to use a few of the facilities namely the safety deposit box behind reception, the printer to get our attraction tickets and the wi-fi in our room. Absolutely no complaints at all - in fact the wi-fi worked brilliantly in our room and was a really great price, $6 for 24 hours. I can also recommend the little shop in reception which is like a Tardis!! Slightly overpriced but stocks pretty much anything you might need.

Most mornings we ate breakfast at the deli next to the hotel. Fantastic service, great prices and lovely food - highly recommended! Within 5 mins walk of the hotel there is also a liquer store and a small but well stocked supermarket if you wish to stock up your fridge - we found this invaluable after a long days sightseeing when all we wanted to do was crash out in our room.

Location was simply perfect, 10 mins walk to Times Square and subway. Many restaurants and fast food joints within 10 mins walk in any direction. Could not fault in that aspect.

Overall we had a pretty pleasant experience and I would probably recommend if on a budget.

Room Tip: Away from 42nd street, not by the pool in winter!

I thank you for your recent review and am happy that your overall stay with us was a success. I am happy that our staff was able to accomodate your change request immediately. We do our very best to accomodate every guest request but it is sometimes impossible to do. Our heat is on an automatic switch as most hotels according to the temparature outside of the property but if the room is ever so cold, please call our Management office and we will rectify the problem right away. I apologize also if the walls seemed a bit thin but unfortunately, there is really nothing we can do about this problem. We surely hope that you visit us again soon.
