Comfort Inn Times Square South
Ranked #319 of 471 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Our trip was Feb 28-Mar 2 (Fri-Sun) and we wanted to stay near Times Square but not pay crazy prices. This hotel fit the bill. The beds were comfy, lots of pillows! The room was clean and quiet. The showerhead was the kind that you could spin to choose your water flow--that was a pleasant surprise. The beds had nightstands next to them, lights and electrical outlets were above the night stand--both very much appreciated. The room is small but big enough for 2 adults. You could easily fit 4 adults in the rooms with two beds (which we had, but you would have to get creative about where to put 4 suitcases. That being said, I think it would still be manageable. The complimentary breakfast was in the basement and the area was also better than I expected--nice furnishings, tv, soda and snack machines and for breakfast a variety of cereals (in boxes), fruits, yogurts, breads, and a hot dish. There were two elevators, we were on the 15th floor and never waited to long for one. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful.

Times Square/Broadway is a short L-shaped walk away...maybe two or three blocks. There's also a Walgreen's drugstore right around the corner from the hotel. There are many places to eat nearby and a subway stop nearby. We took a cab from Penn Station to the hotel--it cost $5. The hotel is next to a male strip club. Do not be alarmed, we wouldn't have even known what it was had we not been curious about the red carpet laid out at night. One night we came back around midnight and the carpet and velvet rope were both gone. We saw no lines, no one going in or out, and heard no noise. The rest of the block is equally as quiet.

I paid about $400 for a weekend stay including taxes, all things considered, I'd stay here again. (Note: we were also able to walk to the Javits convention center from here and one member of our travel party was in a walking boot).

We stayed at the 44th St location during the last big snowstorm and found the staff to be super friendly, very accommodating, the room was very clean and we would love to stay there again because it is super close to all the major tourist spots in Midtown Manhattan.

I had a great experience staying here for my birthday. In great walking distance to Time Square, dining and entertainment and transportation. Very central and easy to get to. Staff was very professional and helpful with pointing out places of interest.

Booked 4 last minute rooms at an excellent price within walking distance of many tourist locations, 2 blocks from Times Square, 20 blocks Central Park. Rooms a little small but fine. Clean. Decent shower. Complimentary breakfast pretty good too, cereals, bread, omelette, sausages, yogurts, muffins. Gets you set up for a busy day! Breakfast room very small and does get v busy at peak time. Bit noisy being so close to Times Square but you get used to it! Staff we met were friendly. Comfortable beds. Would recommend and would stay again.

We went to NYC for Labor Day weekend. The room is great, with a fridge, nice TV, comfortable beds. The continental breakfast was good, but the AC was broken, so it was a 100 degrees down there, that was the only bad part. Everyone was just sweating and it was hard to bring the breakfast back to the room. We were able to check our bags early too. The man at the front desk was awesome, he was so helpful and so nice, and every time we came in and out of hotel, he would greet us by name. I would recommend this hotel.

I made the rsv online for a valentine's getaway for myself and my partner. I also planned to for us to see a Valentine's Day concert at B.B.King's given by "Tamia". The serveice at the hotel was excellent from the moment we arrived. The staff made every effort to satisfy any request we made and the location was perfect. It is within three locks of the venue. We had a great night /late and the staff even went so far as to offer us a late check out!

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during the last week in January 2014 (the week before the super bowl). This was amazing because they had tons of events going on daily in times square such as autographs, free pizza courtesy of papa johns, free bowl ticket raffles courtesy of GMC, field goal kicking practice, drill runs with a football giveaway, photos, and many more. It is VERY CONVENIENT (location wise). It's on W 39th St which is only 3 blocks away from Times Square. You can easily go back and forth from the hotel on foot. There are also plenty of restaurants in the area, and stores for shopping. If you want to travel elsewhere, the subway is only a couple blocks away (every line runs through Times Square).
The breakfast at the hotel is delicious, however, it would be nice if they changed it up a few times during the week. Sausage, waffles, eggs, fruit, cereal, etc everyday. Hotel Staff is SUPER FRIENDLY! They will help you with anything you need (directions, events, linens...basically any request you have, they're always willing to help you).
The room is a decent size for the price, and felt very cozy. The only complaint I had about the room is the bathroom. The bathroom is Super Cold! We had to prop the door open with a towel, so that the heat from the room can go into the bathroom. Now, when you do that, you cannot leave the room. Sound strange? Yes I know...Let me explain...The bathroom is right there as soon as you walk in the room, so once you open the bathroom door, it blocks the room door lol. Tight fit, but I still loved this hotel. Based on location, service, and price, this is the perfect hotel to stay at.
