Large Comfortable Room, Tiny Bathroom, Noisy Location!

As you already know the price of hotels in NYC is absolutely ridiculous....accordingly this hotel offered a large comfortable room, but the bathroom was tiny! The sink basin area is so compact that it was difficult to even shave without my elbows hitting the wall! The hotel location is convenient but noisy from nearby construction and the train tracks running underneath the hotel. Through By NYC standards this place is a real palace! Convenient affordable restaurant next door with many excellent breakfast menu choices!

Central hotel for a good value

We were staying in Travel Inn for 3 nights, right near the Bus Authority, which was very convenient for us. Room was 368 on the 3rd floor facing the street but with the AC working we didn't hear any noise from the outside. The room is spacious with 2 double beds. Very clean, bathroom is big in size and clean as well. The only small thing that bothered us was the mattresses were very noisy (you couldn't move without making a squeaking sound, but it was very comfortable.# Times Square is just a 10 min walk from the hotel. You can get tickets for a Grey Line Bus Hop on Hop off. Some of the guides are very knowledgeable and funny. Right near the hotel is Madam Tussaud's wax museum #you MUST visit# and Ripley's Believe it or Not. It was so much fun. The hotel doesn't have a breakfast, but there are a million eateries around including Dunkin Donuts ,Subway, and BK. On top of that, there is a huge supermarket #Food Emporium) within a 3 min walk. Microwave and fridge was in the room. Do not expect 5-star hotel service from 2**. I don't understand people who are reading all the reviews before booking, leaving negative feedback because they are expecting something exceptional. For 152.00 per night near Manhattan, it's a good deal, but don't expect to be treated like you are staying at the Trump Tower. Nice,clean hotel with a perfect location. Hotel staff doesn't always go out of their way to help you. I'd recommend that if you have a question asking one of the people behind the desk in the morning and then wait at night, for example, to ask another person on duty. You may get two different answers. So beware. But I reiterate, for a $152 a night, don't expect employees to break their backs to help you. Surprisingly, differing from the stereotypes and rumors I have heard about New Yorkers, they aren't as rude, snobby, or ill-mannered as I once thought. When I was lost, and asked for directions, they were more than helpful. And this is coming from a Bostonian, so we know what rude is!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

In Manhattan, the further away from Times Square you are, the cheaper the food is. Also, Health Inspectors grade each eatery with a letter between 'A' to 'D' and 'Grade Pending', and this signifies how well maintained the shop and quality of the food is. It will be posted on the door or window of the eatery. So make SURE you are eating in a grade 'B' or above. You don't want to eat funny looking food or eating in a poorly cleaned place. You may be spending your vacation on a toilet otherwise #or worse, in the ER#.

NYC Birthday Trip

I stayed at the Travel Inn last week when I was in NYC for my birthday. I was a little nervous about the hotel considering I didn't pay much for it and it was in a great location near Times Square. The hotel was very safe (located near from police station) and clean! The staff was friendly and helpful. We asked for extra towels and they gave us a huge stack of towels. The assisted us in arrange for transportation to the airport at 3:30am. The elevator was a little poky and didn't seem to operate at 100%, but nothing major. The room was great especially for the price. It was also convenient to the subway system and Times Square.

Good overall

Good overall, could do with luggage stand in room, reception staff appear to be abrupt but may be a language problem. Be aware the tv reception at times can be poor and in our visit the wifi connection was hopeless unless used in the lobby area, also a daily charge is made. Car parking was a handy feature.
