This place was nasty. The mattress and sheets are stained, dirty with hair all over the bed. There's no way they were changed. It was as if these sheets were there from 5 previous customers. Yuck!!!
To my surprise the room was pretty large, with large windows and mirrors all around. Different but they had a full size refrigerator and a portable metal heater you turn on and off.

I stayed here once in the early 2000s and it wasn't so great but I had to take a trip to NYC and needed something in the area that wasn't too expensive and decided to give this place a shot again. It has improved so much. It is much cleaner and nice and updated. It still has a historical building feel but with flat screen TV's and updated furnishings and a comfortable bed I was very happy. The staff was very accommodating and allowed me to check out late for a small fee. For rooms around $100 in an area where the price is $500 I say it's definitely a great choice.

Room Tip: Aim for a suite, it's even better. Took my leftovers and stuck them in the fridge.

Yes it is older and interesting. Some rooms need help. Ask for the good room and you should be fine. I've stayed twice and got a decent renovated room with an updated clean bathroom. Colors are wild but... whatever. People running it were nice.

Room Tip: corner rooms are better.

Look, I was stuck in NYC overnight. I had heard about this place and realized it is in an "interesting" neighborhood but would try it anyway. Never saw a roach, never saw a bed bug. Never bitten by anything. No mice. No Nothing. Maybe it was a different room. When I first found this place online I decided to ask the staff. They told me there were problems with one or two rooms but those were fixed. The sheets were clean, the rooms were about as good as could be for what the place is. They were even painting the front entrance. Look at some of the reviews. YEARS ago. Would I stay there again? Yep. Pretty quiet, a room is a room! I slept fine.

Oh my goodness- this place was a disaster!!! I can't believe it still exists. I have travelled in 3rd world countries with bare lightbulbs and hole-in-floor toilets but they were better than this place!! I saw cockroaches everywhere- int the refrig, bathroom floor and walls, in the bed, one ran across my face!!! I sat up all night with the light on to try to keep them away and still remember the absurd choices on TV with porn activitiess that I have never seen in my life! (clowns, animals- you name it). It was a hell hole. The front desk said that they would fog for the roaches if I wanted, but then where were we supposed to sleep? You can't inhale that stuff. I agree about the very bizarre neighbors. If you stayed here, you would remember and regret it for the rest of your life. It IS that bad!!!!
