This, by far, was the WORST experience ever at a hotel. I had to move to a different nearby hotel so I could at least sleep and avoid the stench of weed! Bad weed at that! The Bed was extremely uncomfortable and the rooms were pretty much rented by the hour... Off the beaten track, cost me (100. 00 for Uber), NO breakfast included as stated and refunded only part of my money from cancelling. As quick as this place went up... it should come down. The staff was just alright (overwhelmed and not one bit of experience in customer service/hotel management). I should have known when I walked in the room and the remote had no batteries... If at all DON'T Do it! YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!

If you want safe and clean compared to the air B n Bs in the area, and you want lower than $150 price it's ok. There's no coffee pot or continental breakfast like they claim. The room is really tight with space so not recommended for kids. The towels aren't folded nicely, and they only have one tiny bar of soap .

When I saw the rate I should of know better. This hotel looks great from the pictures and even from outside. It’s in an semi residential/ industrial area which isn’t always a bad thing. But in this case it was lots of weird people not sure if there’s drug dealing going on but Lobby and elevators stunk of weed. I know this isn’t the property’s fault and with covid going on lowering the prices is the only thing to do but your brining the wrong crowd in. I hope to come back in a few months and see an improvement or I won’t be back.

This is a good choice of lodging if you are looking or a cheap option. The subway is about 10 minutes walking from the hotel, and it only takes 15 minutes to get to Manhattan. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was breakfast. If you are coming for 2 or 3 nights it is fine, but for a 7-day trip, it was boring and less tasting eating beagles every day. It would help if the hotel had more variety.
