the shuttle into new york
hotel room was dirty and noisy
staff were nice, breakfast was good, very quite
i thought it was a bit way out to visit ny if you did not have own transport,but the shuttle bus was ok ,but a bit expensive on a budget
The free breakfast was very good.
The water pipes were very loud during the night, making it hard to sleep. The only ice machine was in the lobby, which is at the bottom of the hill.
My trip was during the weekend before Labor-Day (6th September), so you can't get any really cheap hotel in New York City. There was no free room in Manhattan either (in that price-category). So I decided to take a room at the Howard Johnson, because it was very cheap compared to the room-rates somwhere else in the area around nyc. The staff was friendly and I had no problems to talk to them (I'm German). The transportation to Manhattan: I took the bus all the time, it's about 10 minutes up to the hill and costs 2,50 $. It's not a problem for younger people, but for older people I would recommend the bus direct from the hotel (about 6$). But come back before 1 am, because there's no bus after that time coming back to the area near the hotel
You must not be squeamish, because there was a long black hair in my shower- towel. But otherwise there was not much to complain, I had no bedbugs!
it was a simple and safe place to sleep.
the regular bus to NYC is much cheaper, than the shuttle. there is no shuttle to newark airport.
yes both disabled had to climb hill to room, it was like climbing mount igor
i lived in this hotle 14 days my my telephone was not work i reported them untilt i my 2 weeks in there they not fit it they
This hotel was disgusting-It has changed my opinion of Howard Johnson and I will probably never stay at one again. It smelled, had bugs, carpet was filthy. The overall experience at that hotel was unbearable and I tried to find another one so we could move but everything was booked. I think Howard Johnson should refund my money and that way I would consider staying at one of their hotels in another city but never that one again. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to voice my dissatifaction.
We haven't got a lot to say...
We had to change our room 2 times in 5 nights: The first was dirty and smelly, and we found mice in the second. In the third room the air conditioning didn't work very well
In general the service was quite ggod. As what I expected for
I think the shuttle fare was a bit excessive. Info as for email contact and general info contact number was invalid. i got off from shuttle bus at Port Authority and not far from where the hotel shuttle bus terminats. i paid $ 58 to get to hotel. This could have been saved if the right info was posted . I paid only $ 15 from PA to JFK via Express bus.
