Bed was comfortable however floor has both bumps and dips in it. It was like they had laid a new surface down without tearing the under surface. Breakfast is minimal at best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very Polite and friendly staff. Clean room!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very close to the airport - also the free hotel shuttle made it soo much more easier - there is a bus stop right out side the hotel - sub way station 5 mns bus ride - close to most things - I loved itGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a good night's sleep"
The shuttle driver made an extra trip over to pick us up at JFK--very pleasant and helpful! The new mattresses were very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It a very nice hotel see you next yearGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Dirty carpets. Rooms need renovating. Good parking. Glad it Was just one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel close to jfk, with free shuttle"
3 star hotel. has mini frig. & microwave. comfortable beds. med. size t.v. with good reception. HOWEVER do not put your room # down on the shuttle sign-up sheet that is kept on the reception desk for all to see - had my room broken into while down at breakfast, 30 min. before shuttle pickup.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Not happy at all"
This motel and that is what it is . Is not clean at all . My room was not comfortable it was old and dirty . The only thing was new was the TV . I will not be staying there at all . I had to change room because the sheets was dirty .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Too much noise. People coming and going all night chatting loudGenuine Expedia guest review
"Room cleaners were fair. Was told to call from Ver"
Verazono bridge for directions. When i called no one could assist me. Thank goodness for GPS. Handicap parking sucked. Hotel van parked in it and they were reluctant to move. People bringing out bread for breakfast were not wearing gloves. Ebowli. Too expensive for what it was.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Satisfactory pet friendly airport hotel"
Located on a highway in Jamaica Queens, this isn't a luxury location, but it is near the airport and pet friendly. I sometimes travel with my cats, and like to take them out of the carriers when there is a layover stop. This hotel and location are good for such a thing. I didn't stay for the breakfast, but it looked as though it was probably the toast […] and coffee kind. There is no restaurant attached. I went to the Burger King across the street, which was convenient but could be uncomfortable for someone not used to New York City. It's close to the airport so you can use the free hotel hourly van or hire a taxi with the help of the kind staff. If you opt to stay here I recommend you buy some sodas and take out food or snacks before leaving the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A bit noisy Maybe due to closeness of street."
Spent 7 nights . adequate accommodation for price. Within bus route&easy access to Manhattan and shopping areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to JFK, very basic but has all you may need"
We stayed overnight just between two flights to/from JFK; did not have time to enjoy a complimentary breakfast. The receptionist was very kind and had printed the boarding passes for us with no charge.Genuine Expedia guest review
Last minute stay at this hotel due to missing our flight. Shuttle bus to and from airport is available. They leave every hour. Bus stop is also located within a few feet of the hotel that takes you to the subway station. 7-11 and Burger King are located nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have never had a bad experience like this ... Unclean & bad smell .. I paid for 2 days ,but i stay only 1 hour and more to a better hotel Not rekommended for family with kidsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not very nice"
Our intent was to find a place close to JFK for a short overnight between flights. OK, this is close. But the hotel a) has almost no lobby, and the receptionist sits behind bulletproof glass (perhaps all hotels near JFK airport are like this?), b) hotel overall pretty tired looking and c) our room's AC wouldn't turn on....and we wanted to do that to […] mask the noise in the hallway, d) while the sink's hot water was fine, the shower never got hotter than lukewarm.

"Good very affordable JFK last minute booking"
Usual JFK and delays=cancellation and a last minute overnight booking. Hotel is exactly as advertised-simple, clean and well worth the low price.Genuine Expedia guest review
The facilities need updating. They made me wait in the lobby for 30 minutes before I was given a room, because expedia paid them the wrong amount even though they charged my card the correct amount...... I was extrememly tired after a 12 hour flight . Overall my stay was okGenuine Expedia guest review
"limited airport shuttle, poor online communication"
Booked online and noted that I would be bringing my family in during the night via airport shuttle -- the hotel is listed as providing one. They provide shuttle only hourly between 7:45 and 22:45, and you need to sign up. Nobody bothered to reply to the booking to let me know this, so we waited for 30 min at the shuttle stop, called hotel to be told […] it was our own fault for not booking with them directly, then had to call a cab (25 dollars from the airport flat fee) to go only about 8 blocks. Hotel is otherwise just about OK: sheets were not tucked in but no bedbugs, friendly staff, room cleanish but not sparkling, few electrical outlets, breakfast adequate but less varied than comparably priced hotels. I would not stay at a HoJo again after this experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay here!"
This hotel is in a very bad area. We also had a situation and the staff pushed us off and did nothing to help. We talked to one of the employees asking if we could get out of our 5 day reservation and only pay for the one night we stayed, and he said yes. We then booked a different hotel. When we went to check out a different person said we couldn't […] get out of paying for all 5 nights. We got 2 different stories from different people and the manager did not help at all. They should have given us a refund for the nights we did not stay, but he took no accountability for his employee telling us it was ok . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Only if you're forced"
Not good, room smelled and bad neighborhood. Try anything else, it would probably be better. This is the last choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel need to improve, no internet when needed, no help during breakfast when items are needed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very near JFK Airport"
The hotel is good for an overnight stay when you have an early flight from JFK. We stayed twice on our way to and from Paris. The shuttle service from JFK to the hotel was terrible and we, and other guests, had to wait more than 45 minutes on a rainy night. We learned our lesson and on our return trip we took a taxi to the hotel, which was about $12. […] Good decision! The shuttle service from the hotel to the airport was good and on time on both stays. Hotel room was clean, with a good big bed and air conditioning and served its purpose for our needs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to JFK and Economical."
This is a no thrills hotel that is located within a 5 minute trip to JFK terminal 1. Overall assessment: a smart choice if you wish to save money, are cool with just the basics, and want to ensure you arrive on time to the airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Does the job"
The hotel room wasn't the cleanest i've ever stayed in but it was convenient for the airport. The hotel offers a pick up and drop off service for the airport at no extra cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean rooms but a little outdated. Good breakfast and nice decor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to JFK with a shuttle!"
Excellent choice for a layover from JFK. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Shuttle from the airport came promptly and ran every hour in the AM.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Poor hotel in a bad location."
The hotel is very shabby looking inside and outside. The "lobby" is tiny and you then have to carry your luggage down 5-6 steps and along a short corridor before reaching the elevator. The rooms are very small and the floor uneven, and there is much traffic noise. We would never stay there again regardless of the price. The women we dealt with at reception […] were good and helpful but the man who drove the shuttle was sullen and unhelpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I travel a lot for work and this is by far the worse hotel I've stayed at. The rooms are so old. There is a no smoking sign on the door but the room is so old that I couldn't tell if the smell were from cigarettes or from the room. They offer free breakfast from 6:30 to 10 but don't expect much. It's just cereal, oatmeal, toast or waffles. They offer […] free shuttle service to the airport til 11pm but the shuttle is soo old, that I'm surprised that it hasn't broken down. I didn't feel safe at this hotel. I would spend more to feel comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location very convenient"
The room could have been a little cleaner. Overall there were no problemsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Shuttle to airport"
I stayed here because it offers shuttle bus service to/from the airport. The shuttle starts early in the morning, which helped me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Glad I Only Needed to Stay There Seven Hours"
In fairness I was coming off a trip to Peru where I stayed at two of the most incredible hotels I've ever had the pleasure to stay at….but I was getting into JFK at 10 p.m. with a bus home the following morning so I needed a place to crash, and this hotel was the cheapest one I found. It was ok for the purpose it served but I've never seen a check in […] area so small, the clerk was in an enclosed area the size of the booth a person sells you movie tickets from. But he was pleasant enough. My key didn't work but an employee happened to be right there and opened my door for me. I just felt cramped everywhere from the minute I walked in the door. The room was sparse with amenities but clean and I suppose comfortable enough. There's a Burger King across the street which was great since I was starving and needed a beverage too. My wake up call and request for taxi were honored, no complaints there. Would I stay there as base for a vacation? No way, but it was fine for what I needed it for.

"Only positive was that it was close to JFK"
We found the driver/porter on duty exemplary, polite, efficient in all respects. The standard of the room was really disappointing, it was poky and gloomy and not worth the money or up to the standard of hotels/motels that we are used to in the USA. Although the linen was clean the room was dirty. The towels were no more than postage stamps. We had […] to leave at 5.45 a.m. someone could have at least turned on the coffee machine. We wont stay there again it was not worth the money $75 max should have been the price Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Review of Hotel"
Place was noisy, under renovation . Parking lot was very tiny and I was worried about my car being damaged.Genuine Expedia guest review
very clean , pretty bathrooms excellent maid service but front desk service was horrible they had to much going in at one time and took a long time to check us in. Near a few stores 7eleven and burger king the closest beds were very comfortbale and each room has a heater and air conditionGenuine Expedia guest review
"good for a qick over night stay"
location to airport and car rentalGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We waited for over an hour and made 5 phone calls before we got picked up at JFK. The van that finally came was a Super 8 van that we had seen before but didn't know it was also for Howard Johnson. The neighborhood was scary. The clerk was behind glass in a booth. The room was dirty. We'll never stay at Howard Johnson's again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Basic room, clean, no frills. Close To JFK, 2 miles. Shuttle. Breakfast. Sketchy neighborhood, noisy Clientele. Price only redeeming Factor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hallways and nearby common area of this hotel was noisy the entire night. It didn't feel safe there. I don't recommend staying there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to JFK, ok value, but nothing special"
title pretty much says it all. One thing I didn't realize is the free hotel shuttle stops operating at 11 PM. So if you arrive later be prepared to spend 15 bucks getting from the airport to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would not stay here again unless it was dirt cheap"
Only there for one night. The people were nice and friendly and helpful. The location is just ok. The condition of the property is very bad and in real need for an updating/repair. Not good for the brand at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
terrible!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to JFK airport"
This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. It sounded more like an hourly rate hotel judging by the amount of door opening and slamming (every few minutes). Place was filthy and staff not very helpful. Do yourself a favor and stay at one of the other hotels in the area. The other hotels also have near constant shuttle service from what I saw.Genuine Expedia guest review
