“Not as bad as they claim.”
Reviewed 15 November 2010

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!!!!

Utter most disgust!!! Do not stay here! Bed looks like its never been washed, the restroom even worse! Literally disgusting! Used paint bin as trash can, mold and mildew all over shower including clogs of hair. I had to shower with heels! Tv is just bunch of porn, what a disgrace! Smells really ugly! Fridge and telephone are there just to trick you, cus they dont even work! I had to leave a day earlier because i refused to stay there any longer. DONT STAY HERE!!!! SPEND THOSE EXTRAT $60-$80 AND BOOK ELSE WHERE. YOUR HEALTH LITERALLY RELIES ON THIS HOTEL!!!

I stayed here with my boyfriend who was in town and we were going to head to a party that night nearby. And him and i are on a budget and i needed someplace to sleep that i wouldnt be broke from. So we chose Senton. Yeah the Sheets were stained but at least the toilet worked and there was a refridgerator that we were able to put some water in. But the only bad thing was that you only can pay in Cash no cred cards or anything, and i loove how they told me that over the phone, NOT!. But the worst was the mouse that was in our room and freaked me out and couldn't sleep because of it uggh. I dont think i will stay here again but it sure is cheap and convienently located near all the happening spots. So i reccomend it for the price not the quality.

It ruined my whole New York experience. It was my first time to New York, I stayed at the Broadway Plaza the first 3 nights but also paid the price. So my husband and I thought for our last night we would switch hotels and stay at something less expensive. Boy was that a mistake!!! We walked in to the lobby and i swear i heard that eerie horror music start to play in the background. My husband assured me it would be okay so we proceeded on to our "hotel suite". We walked in the creaking door and there were about 50 smoked cigarettes in the ass tray an unmade bed with cruppled, stained sheets. Luckily a maid was on her way to clean up. So we left to get the necesities- candle and air freshener (to cover the smell), a blanket,shouldve got our own cleaning spray... what a nightmare... anyway...we didnt even stay in the room we left out to get the hell out. when we did come back i needed to use the restroom- klinda embarrsing but i clogged the toliet and no one came to fix it the toliet water flowed out like a waterfall---they Offered us MORE TOWELS....?? we put towels down in the shower and on the floor and i took a "shower" in the sink and my husband with the shower curtain open because the back of the shower had a nasty greenish brown mold growing on it. My husband used the rest room and swore he say [--] on the wall but didnt tell me because he knew it would freak me out. we covered the bed and while sitting on the bed i noticed RAT/COCKROACH/whatever else poison in the bag next to the bed and almost fainted but somehow we finally fell asleep to some hardcore porn playing in the room next to us. We slept in our clothes. I used my t-shirt to cover my body up, never took off my shoes...god it was a nightmare...WE WILL NEVER GO BACK and hope that you don't either!
