Howard Johnson Jamaica NY Near Airtrain JFK
Ranked #16 of 29 Hotels in Jamaica
Reviewed 27 March 2014

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.

This hotel was obviously very newly opened and everything was fresh and clean! The room was fairly large as was the bathroom! The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. We were able to leave our suitcases in reception after check out whilst we went out. Easy access to and from JFK airport with the air train which is across the road, also easy to take the LIRR into the centre of New York in about 15 minutes. Hotel is nicely lit up at nighttime so is easy to spot!
Would stay here again for convenience.

A group of 24 of us stayed for a night before and after our mission trip to Ecuador. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating to our every need! The hotel in new and nice. Breakfast is simple, but enough is there and the meeting rooms and fitness center are small, but functional. The rooms are nice, but not very sound proof. I hope to use this hotel again in the future.

The rooms are very nice, the beds are great, the TV is huge and the shower/toilet is good. The location for getting to/from JFK with the AirTrain is excellent. Reaching downtown Manhattan is simple with the E subway. The hotel is quiet and the staff are great. The price is fair, you get good value for your money.
The WiFi was slow sometimes and disconnected a few times. There is only one elevator so you need to wait sometimes.

Room Tip: Try a high floor facing the rear, you get a nice view (for the area)

Inn was very good for the price and would recommend it for a short stay. I received what I asked for and was pleasantly surprised that the noise level was minimal considering there were trains nearby. The only drawback was no on-sight parking.
