“Decent Hotel, close to airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

Very good Holiday Inn, nice location, easy of access with free shuttle. Staff was friendly, wether room was paid by cash, or points. The breakfast was average, special mention with the service "to-go" for the ones leaving the hotel very early.

Had a layover here for a night and hotel was good. Rooms are a bit small but very clean.

Decent mall 15 mins down the road as well and they offered a decent breakfast and airport shuttle.

Free wifi Internet was a good advantage. Getting bags up to the room was a bit difficult but manageable with a trolly.

Stayed October 2013, travelled solo

I have stayed in this property on 3 occasions in the past 6 months. The rooms are compact, clean and has no frills. The front desk staff are courteous especially, Cindy!
They have a safe closet to keep your baggage after your check-out and until you actually leave from hotel for your flight. This option makes it convenient for those odd flight timings. The corridor on the 2nd and 3rd floors smells of dirty carpet. I hope they have fixed it by now. The 5th floor was much better though..

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the 2nd floor

Close to airport. Helpful staff. Many restaurants that deliver to your room. Better if traveling alone or with one other person. Rooms were too tight for the four of us and our 4 suitcases. Tried to get a larger room but was told at the desk that all the rooms are the same size. 2 ft. width closet with ironing board and iron. Desk. TV. Dresser. Welcome gift/bag for IHG Members which included Sun Chips and a couple of bottles of water and some candies. Thank you. A few vending machines with sodas and snacks. People on other reviews have complained about the amount of parking spaces but wasn't an issue for us finding a spot.

Julie R,

Thank you for writing a review on Tripadvisor! The rooms in New York City are smaller than hotel rooms found in other parts of the country but we are a great value as we include a full hot complimentary buffet breakfast, complimentary Wi-Fi, and parking for one vehicle. In addition to the vending machines we have a market that features healthy snack options and make ready meals.

We appreciate the time you took to write a review and we look forward to your next visit.

Regards,

The location next to JFK is very convenient and the shuttle service quick and efficient. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, the hotel is clean but in need of of a little TLC. Reasonable choice at breakfast but it was a bit chaotic as the breakfast room is a bit small and also serves as the access route to the hotel reception.

I had a reservation for an overnight layover at JFK. I called several times to ask about the hotel and to send some Amazon packages over, and they were extremely helpful. Even more, when I lost my connecting flight to JFK and had to cancel the reservation, I was still able to pick up my packages the next day, and they were the nicest you could think of. If I were staying at JFK again, I would certainly stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

I'm not a casual hotel visitor, I spend over 250 days a year in various hotels throughout the world (mostly in the Americas but approx. 2% overseas). Primarily Hilton & Hampton brands.

Convenience: easy access to the interstate. pretty convenient for travel but need car to get anywhere interesting
Length of stay: 1 week
RM Size: moderate
Price: reasonable for the area
Service: outstanding. everyone i ran into were just outstanding. friendly and very accommodating
Clean: I'm pretty picky.. i notice things like curtains, both shower and windows. behind stuff, corners.. this crew is meticulous. Room was spotless
Bathroom: avg to small size but decent
Lobby: a bit cumbersome with the multi levels but pretty nice. updated decor.
Pool/amenities: I don't use no comment
Parking: okay... free.. if you have odd hours you might a bit of trouble. but neighborhood is all hotels and appears pretty safe.
Internet: pretty fast, even in corner room off beaten path. have to sign on a few time within 24 hours.
Rewards/Perks: chocolates and water. Don't believe i got a room upgrade.

I would stay again with no issues.. only negative is the walls are paper thin and house keeping came way too early for my liking.

Room Tip: I stayed in rm 501

jeannibeanie,

Thank you for your straightforward review of my property. It is always great when an experienced traveler recommends my property. I was thrilled that you found the service from my team of associates to be “outstanding.” My housekeepers do pride themselves on the cleanliness of our rooms and I was glad to read that you found your room to be “spotless.”

We all look forward to your next visit.
