Room and kitchen are serviceable, basic, nothing fancy, some very minor defects like knobs missing from drawers and tiny bathroom. A/c is fine, cannot beat the location! Nice lobby, as long as it's not filled with Gymboree kids and their nannies.

Room tip: Ask for a high floor with a city view.

After reading these reviews, my partner and I called Priceline, and demanded another hotel (afraid of it being illegal/in poor repair/getting locked out). Priceline told us that we should try the hotel anyways, and to call them if we had any problems. Well, maybe they just made an extra effort to make us comfortable because we called, but the hotel was an AWESOME value for the money. It was clean, the room was great (the kitchenette was actually a mini-kitchen), the location was safe, and there is free street parking. It sucks you had to pay more for the internet, and to leave your bags, but we only paid $100 for what we thought was worth at least $160/night.

Either the other people who stayed here were snobs, or they gave us amazing treatment after the call in. Either way, check this out for yourself. Great value for the money. Only two bad things happened: we found an apple seed on the floor, and the towel bar in the bathroom fell down. If you're the type of person to be bothered by these things, don't stay here. But, if you're not, we had an amazing stay!

Room tip: If you're concerned by these reviews, call in.

Although cheaper than our other hotels in NYC this place is Spartan only stay here if you really can't afford elsewhere. Room a good size but giant old TV right next to our bed almost in the bed with us and no remote! Broken lamp broken blinds needs some desperate renos and the receptionist didn't even welcome us on arrival and didn't seem to know much about anything! No hairdryer and dryers for clothes cost $10 they also charged us $5 per bag to hold onto our bags the day we checked out which is normally for free! I strongly recommend paying $50-80 more a night coz this place is a hole.

Myself, my girlfriend and five of our friends stayed here in march. you get what you pay for in life.Our apt was warm, clean and its in a great location. We stayed in a three bed apt and we had plenty of room, I agree that service was only average but who cares its NYC, all you need is a place to put your head at night. I WILL BE BACK!!!!

Below is a list of problems (all documented with photos!) with the Woogo apartment we rented in Chelsea in Manhattan. It shows blatant disregard of the apartment's functionality, upkeep, and even potentially, resident safety:

* The tub filled up with putrid water and did not drain after use. In addition, there appeared to be no overflow cap at the rear of the tub, instead an unfinished and unattractive and vacant hole was present.
* The towel bar in the full bath appeared to have been broken off - the cleats were present, but no bar.
* The door to the bedroom nearest the front door was held on by only one of three sets of hinges. The other two sets of hinges were hanging loose and no longer attached to the door jam.
* The toilet seat in the half bath was cracked completely through. One person in our party received a painful pinch and was actually bruised when she sat on it, because her weight caused the gap in the wood to open, which then closed on her skin when she shifted her weight!
* Exposed electrical wires were dangling beneath the cabinetry at three different locations in the kitchen where under-counter lighting should have been or perhaps was intended for future installation. In two out of three instances the wires were capped, but the third had none. I am hopeful that these were not "live" wires, but I was not about to touch them to find out!
* Instead of an overhead light in the bedroom closest to the front door, there was a hole and more exposed and capped wires where a ceiling light should have been or perhaps once was.
* The apartment had areas of significant wear and tear beyond that which would be considered acceptable for an accommodation of this price. Paint was flaking off in large areas around pull areas of closet doors. Numerous scuff marks were present in every room and the place appeared to be in great need of fresh paint.
* The closet that contained the heating/cooling machinery was in a closet in a bedroom and not only was unlocked/accessible, but had the remnants of where a latch/lock formerly had been but had fallen or been broken off.

The accommodations were so unacceptable that we had to leave after 1 night because they did not even satisfy our very basic needs (i.e., functional shower), and furthermore the entire process usurped at least 4 hours of our first morning in NYC as we negotiated with staff and looked for last-minute accommodation elsewhere. Disastrous!

Insult to injury - they still charged us the full rate for our 1 nite stay AND are adding an additional cancellation fee equivalent to a 2nd nite stay (over $1200 total!). We are in the process of refuting this but have not had any success yet!!

These guys are crooks!

Room tip: don't stay here!
