Great Location nice room amazing price

You can't beat the location and the price. The room was small but nicely appointed. Just a few feet from Time Square, Broadway, and Restuarant Row. Walking distance to many other attractions and for those that are a little further away you have both North South and East West subway stations coincidently located. Will stay here again on our next NYC trip.

Great Location

Great location just around the corner of Time Square! Other than that, front desk wasn't friendly nor professional. Room is tiny, the bathroom door doesn't even close properly. There's rubbish in the bin when we arrived.

Great location

The room was larger than we expected for New York. We got a room on the first floor which enabled us to avoid the elevator, which was always busy. Really close to TimesSq and all the theatres. Lots of delis nearby for 24hr food. Easy walk to trains and buses. Would stay there again.

great localtion

this hotel is in a great location right near Times Square. Only down side to this hotel was that the room was not cleaned properly daily as we stayed there a week and the floor was not vacuumed the whole time we were there. The bathroom was not that clean either. Otherwise the location made up for these annoyances

Good for family, perfect location

The hotel is a little worn but it's clean and if they redecorate you're not going to get it at anywhere near the current price! Lots of cheaper places in NY, but I don't know any, anywhere near Times Sq. We had virtually a two room suite for three adults (me, wife and adult son) so it was perfect from that point of view. Fridge and coffee maker and iron and 2 TVs. Just around from Times Square, our 11th floor front room quiet, location perfect. Breakfast OK but relatively expensive - better options outside. Nice staff. Would book again.

Price and location-don't expect more

I always stay here for the price and the location, but there's nothing else that's attractive about this place. Most rooms are rather small, some over-heated and the cleanliness of the bathrooms could improve a tad. Best Western Hotels can be a bit tacky, but this one is the only hotel I've encountered in over 30 years of extensive travel that actually charges money to hold bags on check-out. Considering the price of other NYC hotels and the prime location of this place, I wouldn't make much of a fuss about this, but it's still rather tacky.

The room was extremely small with barely enough room to fit luggage on the floor when there are 2 people. The central heating was way hot and this made the room unconfortable. Breakfast was quite good for a continental.

Great location, a block and a half off Broadway, easy walk to Times Square, a few door up from 2 off Broadway Theatres, and a walk to a lot of the New York attractions. Yes the room is a bit small as other reviews have noted, but isn't as tiny as they would have you believe. The hotel and rooms have been recently refurbished and are comfortable. Room a bit pricey, but would stay again
