NY City visit 8-21 for 3 nights

We are a family of 3 adults and 1 child looking to visit NYC and will be driving. Any suggestions on a place to stay that is budget conscious, has a kitchenette, free parking and if it is not near the city center, has free parking and easy access to downtown by bus/subway? Thanks everyone!

if you post specifics about your needs: # of beds/rooms and desired/maximum budget the hotel experts will be able to offer better help.

Also since you need parking, be aware many hotels do not have their own garages and their valet parking may not be the best value. Free parking is unknown in Manhattan. Look here to get an idea of garage locations, rates and coupons: http://nyc.bestparking.com/

A kitchenette will command a premium, do you really need one or would a fridge and microwave do?

We put the trip off for a month but would like to keep he cost down so we're willing to forgo the kitchenette and use 1 room with a couple of queen beds and a rollaway or sofa bed. Thanks for the parking tip!!

Thank you!

What are the exact dates and budget? Hotel costs in September and October will be a lot higher

If you're coming from Boston, staying in Tarrytown, NY is one possibility but you will need to take a commuter train (Metro North) which will eat up some of the savings. Here's a trip report (although old, still relevant) from someone who stayed in Tarrytown.

Closer to Manahattan, Homewood Suites in Edgewater, NJ or Home2 Suites in Long Island City are other options. Dont be so stringent about free parking. If the room rate is good, you can find decent nearby parking.

Are you talking about NEXT August? Dates in your title are 8-21.

The closest thing to free parking in NYC is the Skyline Hotel which has valet parking for $10/night - no in & out.
