We used to stay in this hotel 4-6 times a year, every year, for the past many years. Will not be staying there again. Hotel is currently closed. They will tell you it is because of covid but I walked by it last week on a trip to the city. We stayed about a half mile from the Best Western. As I suspected, it is being used as a homeless men's shelter. The place, which was once a decent, lovely little hotel, was TRASHED. The windows are all broken out in the front (I was told due to many incidents with the residents.) I stepped into the lobby. So sad to see what has become of this place. They are getting paid good money by the city to do this but when they end that, this hotel owner is screwed. This place will need to be totally gutted to ever come close to being a nice hotel again. They dont want you to know this, Im sure, but I would never want to stay there again without knowing what has been going on there. Im so sad to see this, as my family and I have spent many lovely, memorable trips here. All good things must end, I guess. What a mess.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights during our visit to New York City. One big advantage is that breakfast is included in the hotel price and it was so delicious, great american food with lots of options. One thing I really liked is that the rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. One bad point is the location. The hotel is outside Manhattan, the neighborhood is a little strange but the good point is that it is only two blocks from the subway station. I highly recommend staying at this hotel because it is the best value for money you can get in New York City.”

1)damaged my bumper trying to get in a blocked drive way to best western hotel visitors parking.it was blocked by big black pick up truck. I informed front desk ,she said she will call them to move but then change the subject to being where i parked because parking is reserved. Which later that spot (#1) i did not see anyone parked there).then told me my spot would be #6 which was blocked by another vehicle which was so practically in both spots .was told she coukd get them to move after she asked me if i can fit,there was no way i could so i had to move my car a 2nd time to park in the underground lot.2) the room was not to best western expectations of cleanliness. The table was dusty ,the remote was in a slip cover that stated fresh remote,but had dry food on it with finger prints on it. The toilet had a poop stain in it and dry poop on the seat. We are in a world wide pandemic with covid-19 this was truly unexpected and unprofessional. Also half used toilet paper in bathroom and the tissue box on counter was used tissue stuffed back into the box.No complimentary breakfast at all,not even pre wrapped for grave and go due to safety reasons of covid-19.3) i got 2 full size beds not queen size beds as i requested and required.I was also charge $25 a night to park my vehicle on property which is total of $50 on top of my bill but was not included in my receipt. Why should i be charged to park on property if im a paying customer that is staying for 2 nights 3 days.4)there was a disturbance in next room with very loud guest that woke me up at 2am first night.5) the second night that same room was another disturbance which the cops was on scene at 4am which is the time i was woken up the 2nd night.i called the front desk very upset and told me that he can change my room tomorrow.there is much more i can't fit here.
