The location is very concenience to access to train, bus, hop on hop off bus. In front of Penn Station.
The hotel is so old. Everything is out of date and look very old and dirty. The toilet is so old, small, broken sink,...which make me feel not want to enter in... The room has no any facility: no refregirator, no sketle or coffee making device. No tea, coffee or water comprimentary. All of wall, door, curtain, carpet are old and look dirty! Not air conditioner, just an old model of heating device which run very loudly.... When we book on booking.com, it shown that breakfast included for 4 peoples per Room of 4 single beds. But when we check in, we just receive only 02 complimentary breakfast vouchers for only 02 persons. And if using such voucher, we just get only one of sweet cake, a bottle of fruilt jeuce and tea or coffer.... And not enough place for you to sit down for breakfast. You nearly have to stand up for beakfast!!! No any resroom for guest in lobby! If you check out on 11 am and want to leave your luggage in couple of hours in the lobby, you have to pay for 5$/ pcs!!! I cannot imagine why there is an old hotel with poor facility, unfriendly services like this hotel still exist in center of New York now, in the year of 2019! Totally disappointed!

Location, although the hotel is clean ,it could use some updating . Maybe bring it into the 90"s at least
The decor is early 70's "the Shining"esque.

Full of dust in the room. Cracked bathroom tubs and moldy tiles. Rusty faucets. Carpets seems never steam cleaned. Stained and stinky. This is pet allowed hotel. So you should hear barking and dog noises. They never separate pet floor. So you don't know your room has been pet's room in previous stays. Staffs are extremely unkind. I visit 4 time in a night to open the room, because hotel from room key did not working properly. They double locked my room. Never say sorry or appologies for 4 times back and forth to front and room. It is bit cheaper than other manhattan hotels, but this hotel will ruin your entire NYC trips. Pay little more to choose other hotel. This is true!! Don't take your change to stay this hotel. Oh I forgot. When you drop off your family and luggage for few minutes in the front of hotel with your car. Valet parking guys yelled pull out your cars and scared you to get ticket. Taxi also block cars to drop off. No proper drop off zone. I traveled a lot. but this is the worst Horrible hotel I ever stayed.

Free breakfast was good as we weren’t expecting it and perfect for us as we don’t eat a big breakfast that early in the morning so a muffin/coffee was perfect
Rat traps in the rooms, plug sockets hanging off the walls, carpet looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in 30 years! No duvet on beds just a thin sheet which looked like it came from the 70’s. Bathroom disgusting, taps mouldy, bath plug broken and dangerous if stood on. Front desk staff rude and queues to see a member of staff over an hour long!

Wonderful location! The Manhattan mall is around the corner, Penn Station (with a wonderful variety of food) is across the street and Times Square is a few short blocks uptown! All in all, you're in the middle of everything important in midtown.
There aren't any smoking rooms and I'm not crazy about this "resort fee" that essentially makes the per-night cost look WAY more competitive than it really is. One room I stayed in (I've spent about 8 out of the last 10 nights in this hotel) didn't have heat and there wasn't an outlet by the bed to charge my phone, and two of the rooms have the old style TVs, opposed to the flat panel type.

Disappointing
Everything was old and no updates. Walls were dirty, carpets dingy, hallways were dreary, broken lamps, dust in the room should be celebrating anniversaries. If you have allergies and are a clean person, this is not the place for you.

Free breakfast. Free token for nearby bar.
Unhelpful staff. Long queues check in and check out. Dirty room. Broken remote took five hours to get changed.

Overpriced! I expected the room to be clean, cozy and bigger for the price and where it is located but I was so disappointed. First time in New York and it's sad to say but worst hotel I ever stayed at. I really wanted a refund after entering the room but I was to exhausted and short on money to spend on booking another one. Plus the deposit was $100 but it doesn't go back automatically after checking out, you have to wait 7-10 business days which is absurd. Free breakfast? Ha, not even worth it either.

My room was changed twice due to the poor conditions of the rooms. The room we ended up in had mole and there was no heat. Taking $50 off was not good enough for the level of discomfort. I can say so much more.
Sorry I reversed the comments. But I like nothing about the hotel. It was the single most horrific hotel experience I have ever had. And I travel a lot.

My flight arrangements were diverted from Washington to JFK so I needed a convenient place to stay beside the Pennsylvania station. This hotel was thus certainly very convenient, just beside the station in the centre of Manhattan. There was also an iron and board in the room, so it was easy to prepare for the day without the usual hassle of requesting room services to bring an iron round.
The key problem was that the blankets on the bed was were very thin and the window was drafty. Given that it was freezing outside, I therefore felt very cold. Overall the hotel looks like it hasn't had new carpets or a paint job since the 1980's.. I.e. it clearly has had better days. But to be fair the rate is $65 + $50 taxes, so you can't expect much at that price in the US.

Okay
The bed was comfortable.
My in room phone didnt work. The room is in dire need of updating, peeling paint and the bathroom needs updating. It wasn't dirty but it appears that way from being old.

Only the place that was nearby everything!
Too much noise, some guests seemed using drugs or alcohol at night, they run through the hall in front of my door. My family and I were afraid of it. It scared us all night. Moreover, suddenly a mouse appeared in our room. Tough stay! Nothing clean, the carpet smelled bad!
