it was a poor experience to live in here. The facilities are old, the room are not looking good, and the lobby was full of hemp smell... Please dont ever try!

Minimal decor

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: Location and for the location, plenty of parking. Could use a tad more insulation to muffle Elevated Railroad noise.
Cons: Just a General Sprucing Up. Structurally, I couldn't see how to make access from one lever or even both end of hotel easier.
Location: Five Walkable blocks from The Bronx Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Easy walk to the New York City Subway.
The king sized bed had a skimpy, minimal, inadequate comforter. With the sheets, together provided a short sheeted night's covering. Each night had the bedding wadded on the bed as we could barely cover ourselves. For Two days their Ice Machine was inoperable. Snack vendor completely empty. Staff was nice but they have to work with what they were provided.

You get what you pay for.

The shower had no hot water. We stood in shower and used a wash cloth to bath with the Luke warm water from the sink. It was a non smoking room that was a smoking room at some point. We needed to change the lines the first night b/c there was pubic hair found when sheets were pulled back. It wasn't vacuumed. The 2nd night, yes we stayed 2!, the key wouldn't work. We had to wait 25-30min to have key reset. The guy couldn't muliti task. Positives.... Breakfast was fine and it was very close the subway to make it easy to get to mid-town.

I recommend another hotel!

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: Nothing!
Cons: The carpet, the beds, cleanliness, and the staff needs to be more professional!
Location: This was fine. Subway accessible!
The place is not clean! My belongings were removed from my room because they cleared out the wrong room. No apologies whatsoever! Also, they are simply rude! I cannot believe that this is a Howard Johnson facility! I've already emailed corporate and I never write reviews. This was just an appalling experience.

Place was OK, but charged more than the quality of the room warranted.

Hotel is located underneath multiple subway lines

Posted Feb 27, 2015
Pros: I really didn't like the hotel at all ...you get what you pay for.
Cons: Everything
It's incredibly noisy in the rooms - for what seems like all night long. It's impossible to get a cab to stop here. It's the same almost everywhere in the Bronx.

You get what you pay for (which is not a lot)

Posted Feb 19, 2015 on Hotels.com
Room was disturbingly dirty - stains and lint on the floor, cigarette burns on the sheets, numerous long, dark hairs in the bathroom, both on the sink and IN the towels. Additionally it is about 20 feet away from very active train tracks, with trains clunking by all throughout the night. Neighborhood is a bit sketchy. Overall, you get what you pay for. I was looking for the cheapest hotel nearest to my destination in the Bronx, and that's exactly what I got. Would not recommend it to others if other places are available and feasible.
