I almost hesitate to recommend this hotel, as others will discover its value and charms, and then it might be booked the next time we want to go! But I will anyway...
What first attracted us to the Travel Inn were its great rates and that free parking. The parking alone (self-parking, your car is always available to you, in/ out privileges) is worth booking a room here! Our room (4th floor overlooking the pool and patio) was perfect-- large (a king room), spotlessly clean, with fridge, microwave and a very comfortable bed. Although air-conditioned, it was such a pleasure also being able to open the window and let in the cool night air (I won't say "fresh air", since this is, after all, New York City!). The bed offered a delightful night's sleep and the bathroom was also just fine (don't know what some people are doing complaining about its size-- not huge by any means, but more than adequate) and the toiletries provided were great. Although we didn't make that much use of it, the pool and the patio in downtown Manhattan were a delight.
The hotel's location is excellent: walking anywhere in Manhattan is a breeze, and the Times Square and theatre district are a very easy walk. Starbuck's is just around the corner, a CVS pharmacy across the street, The Food Emporium (great supermarket) a block away and a 24 hr 7-11 just down the street. The police station across from the hotel gives a nice sense of security and the neighborhood felt completely safe and secure no matter what time of day or night we were outside. Many many great restaurants within a ten minute walk (check out Restaurant Row along 9th Avenue!) and we found the Theatre Row Diner diagonally across the street (at Dyer Avenue) a great value with excellent food and service (we breakfasted there every day).
We found some of the negative reviews on TripAdvisor totally bizarre--- who ARE these people? Do they expect five star ambiance and service at these prices? If so, they are delusional. The Travel Inn offers excellent value and very comfortable surroundings; if you want plush bathrobes and chocolates on your pillow, then go pay $500 a night elsewhere! No, the front desk service isn't the friendliest (who cares?), but our chambermaid's friendliness and efficiency more than made up for that. City noise at night? Get real, people--- this is Manhattan!
In summary, we LOVED the Travel Inn and we WILL be back on our next trip to NYC.
