Arrived on 7/11, departed 7/15. Hotel is located just off of highway and convenient to local attractions and NY City. Advertisements on line seemed to indicate rooms come with refrigerator/microwave, for the daily average price of $134, it does not, that would require an upgrade to a suite. Breakfast first morning was okay, no fruit available, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, bagels, english muffins, cold cinnamon buns, assorted cereals, coffee and juice. Breakfast changed the next couple of days when bacon was replaced by French toast sticks. Just an average "free" breakfast with the usual toaster that barely toasts even after 5 minutes. Hallways of hotel on floors one and three all smelled of a body odor type smell. WI FI was hit or miss in room on second and third day of stay. Room was good size with king size bed, sitting area with chair and desk, flat screen TV. Air conditioner worked well, but a device installed on top of the AC unit directed the air directly toward the bed which kept us very cold, had to use a chair to block the air away from the direction of the bed. One piece of furniture in room was stained (picture). Bathroom was good size and had the normal amenities, a few observations, tub missing a chunk (picture), tile in bathroom leaning on wall, not glued (pic), stain on bathroom ceiling (picture) and the exhaust fan either didn't work, wasn't supposed to work or the switch to turn it on was in another location we couldn't find. This HIE showed the desire to reduce their footprint on the planet by recycling and provided a bin for such items. Picture I have posted shows that our aluminum cans from the recycle bin were put into the same bag as all of the trash from ours and other rooms. Pool and hot tub were utilized and were acceptable. Only one ice machine available in the hotel, it is located on the first floor and often was out of ice. Last day of visit, elevator was hot as a sauna as was the hallway on the third floor. This was a last minute visit and the hotel accommodated our need for a place to sleep, but if you are looking for clean and a well kept hotel, you will need to look elsewhere.
