For one of, if not the cheapest JFK hotels you can't knock it. Basic but clean room, friendly staff and driver, decent albeit basic continental breakfast. Bus stops coming and going to Jamaica station right outside the hotel so convenient and easy for a day trip into Manhattan if you have time. Slightly un-nerving area and the reception behind glass makes you think it's not the safest of areas; wouldn't suggest strolling the neighborhood but felt fine and safe within.


Not a good place to stay. And watch out. The staff might want to rip you off!

Unfriendly shuttle-driver. Sticky floor in the elevator, dirty carpets everywhere. Weird smells everywhere (in room, bathroom, hallway, elevator, ...) . Hair in grumpily bathroom. Disgusting curtains. Reception staff was kind of helpful but not really friendly.
