6/10 Good

The sheets were stained and covered in tears, under the bed was a thick layer of dust and remnants of tenants’ stays. The bathroom could’ve been worse but the shower curtain was covered in mold and there wasn’t any hand soap by the sink. You’re definitely getting what you pay for and nothing more.

Not great, but got the job done
Needed a place after a bunch of flights were cancelled. Staff was courteous, but the room floor was a bit dirty, toilet flush didn't work so well and there were no towels in the room by default. Could be due to tat day's rush though. The nearby restaurant was nice enough

I wish there was a 2 1/2 star choice. Walking from Jamaica Station to the hotel was not a pleasant experience. It is in a very rough area. Even the desk clerk was behind bulletproof glass. If you need to stay a night close to JFK, this place is an inexpensive choice (walking to and from the Air Train in daylight). But, on to the room. Small room, but very bright and clean. You can tell the place isn't that old. Google street view even shows the old building before it was torn down. But wait! No towels in the bathroom. It took 2 calls an hour apart to finally get towels delivered to the room. I put the towels on the towel rack and the rack came off the wall. Someone didn't install it correctly. The refrigerator was placed next to the bed so close that the door would only open a few inches. Who designed this room? We'll, my bright idea was to move the bed over so we could get our drinks and food in. It worked. But, the headboard didn't move with the bed because it was attached to the wall. Who designed this place? Anyway if you have no choice but to spend the night by the Jamaica Station and you want to save a few bucks (Holiday Inn is a little farther down the block at more than double the price), this would be an "OK" choice. The front desk people were nice and polite and apologized for the towel rack when we checked out.
