Coming to the rescue

Posted Oct 16, 2014
Pros: It provided just what we needed
Cons: Perhaps a plant or two in the entrance and lobby
Location: We simply stayed the night
We were flying from Bogota to London via New York (JFK) and needed a bed between arrival at JFK at 22.30 and departure for London at 8.15 the next morning. The hotel gave us comfort, cleanliness, welcome and a very efficient shuttle bus service to the terminal.

Waited close to an hour to get picked up. Room was ready and decent, but elevator was out of service. Very noisy with trucks running engine all night. Disruptive,arguing guests a few doors away at 4am;had to call desk after guest wanted to fight with me. Breakfast and ride to airport were good.

Overnight stay

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: Free airport shuttle Good value
Cons: Clean/replace the linens/mattress/chairs
Location: Location is in a bad part of town, but we had no issues during our stay. Not much food nearby, nor activities, aside from a nearby park.
Area looked "iffy" but we had no issues. Checked in without problem. Room was tidy, but mattress was badly stained, along with all of the chairs. Took the airport shuttle, it runs several times a day, roughly once an hour. Staff were helpful and curteous.

Room on a budget

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: The staff was polite and very helpful to our needs.
Cons: equipment maintenance on the furniture of the rooms
The room had all the basic needs. the bed was large and comfy, though the the sheets were a bit starchy. The water was hot and the tv had cable so we were content. There were some issues with the room such as the fridge in our room was really loud when it ran it would wake us throughout the night. The location was a bit on the shady time and my fiance wouldn't step out of the hotel unless there was a cab already waiting.

Not bad for the price per night

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: Large room, clean bathroom and bed
Cons: carpets and floor cleaning in room. Some of the front desk staff weren't very interested in helping you with enquiries.
Location: Burger King and 7/11 nearby. Bus stop very close to get to Subway station, apart from that nothing to do.
Have to get a bus for 15mins to take you to the Subway station and then it's another 45mins to get into Manhattan. Area round hotel hasn't got any bars or restaurants so nothing much to do. Room was large enough, tv and fridge worked fine. Floor wasn't as clean as I would have liked and the carpets in hallway require replacing.

Stay at Motel

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Pros: Close to airport, shuttle to airport, breakfast available.
Cons: Not a good part of town. Elevator broken. Should have someone to help those with disabilities.
Location: Not a safe neighborhood to go to eat.
Area did not seem very safe. Elevator into the building as not working. That is an ADA problem. Very close to the airport. Shuttle to airport very convenient.

Convenient Location

Posted Sep 30, 2014
Pros: Clean hotel & decent amenities
Cons: Add more items to breakfast such as cheese slices & chocolate flavoured breakfast cereal
Location: Best for arriving late at JFK and sleeping overnight before hitting the city
HO JO JFK is really close to the airport & I found it a pleasant experience to stay there. The breakfast includes a waffle maker which is unique. Clean and the airconditioning works just fine.
