Reviewed 5 July 2014

The location is excellent just 4 blocks from our Broadway show, then the front desk was accommodating and held our bag before and after we checked out. Breakfast was free and that was a surprise. The room is very small but perfect, clean, flat screen TV, Desk and even a bathtub. With all of the expensive hotels in NYC you cannot go wrong with this spot. Would definitely stay again.

You just can't beat this place as far as location. You can walk to any Broadway show. Central Park less then a mile away. One block over on 9th Ave, any kind of restaurant you want. Close to subways, and Hop On Hop Off Bus pick up stops. The staff is great, very helpful and pleasant to chat with. The rooms are small, but perfect when all you need is a place to sleep and shower.
You can grab breakfast and coffee in the morning and out the door you go.

Small, friendly hotel. Excellent location at an affordable price. OK the room was small but then we didn't intend to spend time in the room other than sleeping, so that was fine. Breakfast provision was more than adequate. All the staff were rally helpful but a particular mention to Jessica who went the extra mile.

Room Tip: Higher up the better because of street noise, but if you use the earplugs provided, as we did, then...

We booked this Econo Lodge kind of last minute after deciding to stay in the city for a short trip instead of outside. The rate was affordable and the reviews are mostly positive so we decided to give it a chance.

The staff at this location are all very friendly and eager to help with directions, advice on things to do, recommendations, or anything that you might need. We were greeted every time we came through the door.

The location is amazing - especially given the rate. Only about 1 1/2 blocks from Times Square and of course tons of shops, restaurants, and things to do within easy walking distance. We only used the subway once our entire trip as we were able to walk to almost everything we wanted to do.

Breakfast is small but definitely adequate. Based on the level of service provided here, I expect that there would be even more options if they had the space because they do seem to want to take care of their guests - they are just very limited on the space available for items. Even on just the two mornings we were there, there was at least a little variety in what was offered (though if you want something above just a continental breakfast, there are plenty of great places to eat nearby).

The rooms were clean and well-kept. The only issue is, as many reviewers have noted, the size. That is obviously nothing that the hotel or the staff can do anything about and they make good use of what space they have available. However, I cannot imagine staying here for an entire week as I think I would become claustrophobic. Just a couple of days was great though. With two people in the room, one basically had to take turns sitting on the bed while the other moved around and then switch. It can also get a little loud as the rooms are street-side, but the hotel does provide ear plugs in the rooms if you need them.

If you need somewhere clean, friendly, and excellently located and do not have hundreds of dollars to spend each night on the room, this Econo Lodge is a great option. I would definitely not hesitate to stay again.

Staff was friendly and polite. Room was very clean. Got a refrigerator requested. Breakfast could be bigger, but limited space. Only complaint is that high speed internet wasn't very "high speed". But I'll be back. Great location for my theater purposes. And they accepted my SED rate, not a lot of NYC places would. I could not afford the trip without it. Thanks. OOPS< down below, I should not have rated restaurant and pool, because they did not have, and I certainly did not need.

This hotel is absolutely fantastic. The location is first rate. The breakfast was fantastic and 7/24 coffee at the lobby. The room was clean and comfortable.Upon leaving you can also leave your bags in secure storage for free. But the absolute best thing about the hotel are the staff specially Daisy Santiago and Jessica Lapidez. If you want the location without the price then this hotel is a must in my opinion. Should we every go back we'll be using this hotel

Perfect location, right in the heart of times square! The staff were really helpful and gave us a some lovely complimentary honeymoon treats too which my wife loved! The rooms are quite tight but then again, everywhere is in NY. They were clean and had working air-con which was really useful. The breakfasts were varied and really filling and the hotel offers complimentary hot drinks / water 24/7 which is perfect when you roll in after a day of sightseeing!
