This hotel was the closest one to the New York JFK Airtrain that I could find and I stayed here twice when flying in and out of JFK. The hotel is about 200 meters from Jamaica station down a reasonably well lit street, certainly better than the nearby alternatives that I investigated. The hotel itself is lit up at night like a multi-colour christmas tree, so its easy to see where you are aiming for if walking at night, as I happened to be on both occasions. Also, there is a police station right at the Jamaica train station. Anyway, Jamaica station is not only an Airtrain station but it is also a NYC Subway station plus a Long Island Rail Road station so it also allows for easy to-and-fro into NYC, though if looking to spend a lot of time in Manhatten you would be better off finding a hotel closer in (but more $ of course). I was happy with the accommodation, the rooms were clean and well maintained and this hotel seemed like pretty good value based on my limited travelling around america. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and looked after my luggage for me without charge when I took a side trip.
