“A good place to stay and reflect!”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

We'd travelled down from Connecticut and were looking for a cheap hotel before flying out of La Guardia early the next morning and the Pelham Garden came up on our SatNav.

A bit strange to talk to a concierge behind a glass screen but he gave us the keys to a room and we went to have a look - well, you can imagine our surprise when the main light switch flooded the room with red light but our surprise turned to shock and gales of laughter when we realised how well the room was equipped with large mirrors - on walls and celing!

When we mentioned these unexpected features to the concierge, he shrugged, smiled and said that was what his customers preferred!

Anyway, the room was otherwise in a good state of repair and very clean so we took it, enjoyed some good food and service at the Pelham Bay Diner next door and paused for a moment or two in amazement as couples checked in, grabbed their buckets of ice from the machine in reception and ran, giggling, to their rooms before adjourning to ours.

What a happy place!

Room Tip: Safe, clean and half the price of anything close to La Guardia - but no good at all if you're pu...

We were looking for a fun date night, something out of the usual. So why not try meeting at a hotel like we were dating. Saturday Night at the Pelham Garden Motel is hopping!!! Took a room for a short stay ($50 for 4 hours) - A perfect fantasy motel with mirror everywhere, red lights, etc. Room was very clean. Amenities are fine for what you need. Paper bath mat, 2 towels, basic toiletries, etc. Staff was friendly. Security guard in parking lot on duty. Felt perfectly safe. Loved the diner next door. I will be back. Maybe try a Jacuzzi room or round king bed room next time. Great value for the money. Not the trump taj mahal, but much better!

We are so thankful that we found the Pelham Garden Motel. Every two weeks we fly in to the Bronx for treatment at the Eastchester Cancer Center. Before discovering the Pelham Garden Motel, we stayed at a national chain hotel that was more expensive--it also required reservations and a taxi ride twice a day. Now we just stroll over to the Pelham Garden Motel. It is in a very nice neighborhood less than a mile from the cancer center. It offers the additional convenience of a diner right next door that is open 24/7 and a grocery store within walking distance. We like it that Pelham Garden does not take reservations because it is large enough that they always have a room for us; in addition, we often have last minute medical emergencies and not having to cancel or change reservations gives us one less thing to worry about. The hotel managers have always been very personable and accommodating. If you are high maintenance, then this may not be the place for you. It is clean and comfortable, but the shower mats are paper and the amenities are minimalistic...to say the least. For example, the red dresser drawers are 'faux' and you only get two thin towels. If you are like us and can do without red neon lighting and mirrored ceilings, all you have to do is let the desk know when you check in. However, if you are more adventurous, we understand they even have a room with a round bed that they rent out for around $80 for three hours--the Pelham Garden Motel just may be the honeymoon destination of the Bronx!

Room Tip: All rooms comparable for quietness--quiet neighborhood
