Avoid this Hotel

Hotel is a bit "seedy" and we did not feel safe. Has reservation for rooms with queen beds but the room we were given only had double beds and smelled. They quickly corrected the error and we changed rooms. 2nd room smelled better but still not fresh Got NO sleep, as all nite long there were drag races in front of the hotel. What a disaster. I would NEVER stay at this hotel again

Convenient, clean and accommodating.

Pros: Kind employees, location, quiet area, free shuttle to/from airport, and free breakfast.
Cons: I liked everything about this experience and will come back in the future.
Location: Not much in the nearby area, but food can be ordered for delivery. I chose this hotel for it's nearby location to JFK, and not for tourist reasons.
I randomly chose this hotel because of it's location to JFK, the free shuttle and breakfast. We stayed here at the first and last nights of a 16 day trip out of the country. Coming in to JFK after 10 PM each time, we did not know if we had to call for the shuttle, but it was right there. I had earlier called the hotel to find out where to find their shuttle at JFK, and they were perfect. Coming back in with big time jet lag, the young woman at the desk was kind, gracious and understanding. And this was at midnight. The next morning at 5:30 AM she was there still working, happy and very nice. The lady attending the breakfast buffet at 6 AM was also kind and sweet, making sure we had everything we needed. I definitely recommend this hotel for any travel in/out of JFK. The area of the hotel is not somewhere you'd necessarily walk around in at night, but that was not our intention. It was clean, had everything we needed and was very quiet. I highly recommend this hotel and especially commend the sweet front desk lady.

Good basic hotel near JFK airport

Pros: Great beds & good breakfast
Cons: Can't think of anything
Location: Just wanted a bed for the night and be near an airport with shuttle bus.
Arrived early evening and went straight to bed after a long travel day. We needed a hotel near JFK as we came in late and had to leave early. Had a good night sleep in great beds, had breakfast and got the complimentary shuttle in the morning back to the airport. Breakfast spread was pretty extensive.

A good value at a convenient location

We needed a hotel near JFK Airport, but did not want to spent a lot of money. My minimum criteria: comfortable beds, clean rooms, hot water for showers, considerate staff. This hotel gave us those plus a nice and free breakfast before we left to catch a morning flight.
