I could not stay there at all! It very dirty and unkept. I had to look for another hotel!

Great Location, low price

OK for a B & B. If you expect a large hotel room, this isn't the place for you.

Elegant City Respite

The Gracie Inn was an oasis of gentility. Perfectly complimented a memorable trip to New York City.

Quaint and fun

Posted Jun 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
My husband and I took our three children to NYC for the first time. Gracie Inn was perfect for us. The location was ideal - a relatively quiet, residential neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, easy access to the subway, and just blocks from Central Park and the Met. We loved eating meals on the rooftop patio (penthouse suite). The kids were captivated by the narrow staircase to the master bedroom with the greenhouse windows - fun in a thunderstorm! The kitchenette helped make meal expenses more manageable. Nice, personalized breakfast delivered to the door at requested hour. Staff happy to help, but only onsite during the day. Rustic feel - exposed pipes, wood floors, aging fixtures,but absolutely adequate.

Total Disappointment

Posted Jun 12, 2014
Pros: Quiet street, cafe on the corner
Cons: See above.
This place looked cute on the website, but my room (409) was not. Shabby and wobbly furniture, no attempt at decoration, mold beginning to grow in the shower, an oddly stocked kitchenette (no spoons), no bathmat. Not good. Don't go.

An absolute dump

Posted Jun 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
The price was right but the conditions were awful. Old run-down facilities. Has the look of a tenement. Television didn't work. Bed mattress was lumpy. Just an awful place. Even at a reasonable price one expects more than this. Even on a tight budget, I wouldn't stay there again. Ever.

overall a great little place--staff is great, and unobtrusive. The mattresses could use replacing. I will definitely stay there again

Flea pit on 81st

Posted May 29, 2014
We lived for years on this street so I thought it would be nice to stay there after an absence of four years. I was encouraged because there is a nice cafe and restaurant with the same name in the street and I assumed (wrongly) they were under same ownership at the hotel. What a blunder! It's hard to know where to start telling so I won't and advise you DON'T

Quiet area

Hotel was very old in need of new beds. Bath and sitting area adequate. Television and air conditioner difficult to operate need clear instructions. Overall I liked it for short term stay of two nights.

Upper East Side Hotel

Posted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
Basically the hotel is in a nice location with a 15 minute walk to the subway or to central park. The area is quite silent in the wee of the evening/night which is great if you need to get rest from the bustling city during daytime. The state of the room, however, was not really that great, but nothing to scare you away, either. The rooms were dark but I guess if you visit NYC you would not want to spend time in your room but experience the city. Breakfast is included but if you want something of quality, then you should just find something else.
