We flew to LGA airport and called the hotel to verify directions. But, unfortunately, the directions they gave us turned out to be completely wrong so, finally we decided to go to JFK and get their FREE shuttle to pick us up. We called and the hotel staff told us the shuttle would be right there- having waited for an hour and called for 30 minutes non-stop (they never answered the phone again) we got a cab and finally made it to the hotel only to be met by an extremely RUDE front desk staff. What shocked me the most was that the hotel owner yelled at us and told us that whatever his staff told us didn't matter and he didn't care that we were just left at the airport. We tried to cancel our reservation (there are a lot of other better hotels around) but the owner refused to give us our money back. So we had to stay there.
Overall, the hotel is very old and not very well kept- falling off tile, stains on linen, not very clean, not enough hot water- it just turns ice cold in the middle of you taking a shower. It is very noisy too. Another big problem is that is EXTREMELY hard to get anywhere from it- it took us over 2 hours to get to any attractions. On the website they say that there are subway stops nearby which is a complete misrepresentation- it'll take you an hour just to get to the subway. So if you fly to JFK and do get picked up (which as you can see may not happen) and don't plan on going anywhere ( the area is not safe) - you might consider it (just remember- it's not a nice place to spend your time at). But if you actually plan to go and see NYC-definitely find something else not to ruin your trip!
