Best Western Jamaica Inn
Ranked #8 of 30 Hotels in Jamaica
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2012

average, comfortable rooms at this hotel situated at the outskirts of NY, near the JFK airport.
The breakfast served has a good variety, cozy dining room. The staff is warm and affectionate.
Located right on the expressway highway so probably better to go for a room located at the back. The neighborhood doesn't look very safe so be cautious if venturing out late at night. The subway is also approachable. Overall adequately priced.

Room Tip: rooms are clean.
Stayed: June 2012, travelled as a couple

Only reason we stayed here for one night was we need to catch an early morning flight out of JFK. It is located along a service road next to a busy expressway between 2 subway stations. Didn't feel safe with the neighbourhood when checked in late at night, as even the front desk staff was behind some glass window for obvious reason.

The room with a King bed was quite small but clean generally. The rate for this Best Western is comparable to other better located places that I have stayed in Queens so I have no reason to stay here again given other choices.

We got this hotel for a great deal on a name your own price website. I couldn't have been happier! The rooms were updated and very clean - I was very pleasantly surprised at what I got for the price that I paid!!!! I would have expected to pay much more for this type of room. Even though this property is located beside the expressway, we could not hear any traffic noise at all. All of the front desk staff were extremely kind and very helpful with information. They were professional and courteous - much more than I expected for the price and the star rating!!! It is an easy walk to the subway and on a very convenient route for getting to the city. It was only $17.80 from the airport to the hotel by taxi and once there, we purchased a 7 day unlimited subway/bus Metro card for $29. This was an excellent place to stay in New York with convenience to everything we needed as well as great amenities and service.

On our trip to the USA/Canada I was looking for a hotel close to JFK and with good transport options (e.g. the subway). The Best Western Jamaica Inn fitted this well - USD$15.00 by taxi. The Briarwood Van Wyck subway was about five minutes walk away, about thirty minute average ride to mid town Manhattan. We purchased a seven day Metro (subway) card for USD$29.00. we were staying for five days and four nights. The breakfast was more than we expected or had read about. Plenty of options - waffles (made yourself so very fresh and hot!), cereals, and fresh fruit, and toast, bagels - this breakfast was great to get us going for the day and all for FREE!!! We mostly were in Manhattan all days so only dined locally at the diner around the corner - what a great place that was as well - great food and service. All I can say is we had a great time and have nothing but praise for the Best Western Jamaica Inn and its staff. we were even able to check out at 1.00 pm as we had some last minute shopping to complete. I would recommend this everyone and would gladly stay there again. Return taxi cab ride was USD$20.00. I cannot believe some of the poor reviews her? Well done Best Western Jamaica Inn!!!

My girlfriend and I were looking for someplace reasonably priced with easy access to the sights of NYC. We were both flying into JFK but at different times, and after researching many options, I chose this hotel based on its proximity to both the airport and subway access as well as price and surroundings. The price through hotels.com was excellent, and the ease of access to both the airport and subway was very good. The surrounding area seemed better/nicer than the other options near this location and we felt safe walking the 5 minutes north to the subway station at Queens Blvd and Van Wyck. The staff was friendly and helpfull with all of our questions and our request for extra pillows and at checkout, a cab to the airport. They went above and beyond by letting my girlfriend check in several hours early from her flight. The room was comfortable and nicely equiped but a little noisey from traffic on Van Wyck and the carpet really needed to be cleaned or replaced. Perhaps an upper floor room toward the back would have been better. I would have no problem staying there again.

Good location and near to subways. Small grocer and deli within three minute walk. Very near to JFK Airport. Rooms are small, good for overnight stays and worth the price.

Room Tip: Continental Breakfast includes waffles, freshly made.
