Melva Inn, an Ideal Place
My stay at Melva Inn was excellent! I was not sure about what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best decision I made. The location is ideal for getting around. My daughter and I felt safe and the distant to Columbia University and back is ideal. The location provided access to public transportation, lots of great restaurants & family friendly activities. Wished there was a microwave.

Simple, Affordable, Comfortable
This is an affordable, SIMPLE, comfortable place to stay. This is not a four start hotel or B & B. But I found it to be just as it is advertised. It was very clean. The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom had everything we all need. The room was spacious. The innkeeper was very quick to respond when I had a question. It is quiet (rare for NYC). I felt safe and walked so some great restaurants. I was there on business and my conference was a one mile walk so it was convenient for me. I love Harlem!

Very Good8.0
The room is not worth the money, sorry no photos.
I was not informed as how to get in to the building and since there is NO innkeeper you may end up on the steps of the building waiting....and who wants to be waiting for a key to get in to your room in the rain and in the cold?!

Will not be returning here.
The room i was in had ants on the foot rails, comforter and pillows. It’s was a little cold so i used the heater they provide. They had to change my room. The next room was clear of ants and bigger as well as clean.

Ah h-LL no.
Not clean enough, and I have low standards. No wi-fi or cable. Poor communication as far as accessing the room. (Was told the key would be on the second floor. Disturbed another guest, thinking it might be the proprietor. Finally figured out the room was on the third floor). I contacted the proprietor a week before sending this review, and received no response.
