“Find a Park Bench instead! !!!”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

I can tell you for a fact having worked near the area.I though since it was new it might be a nice place to take my girlfriend for the night. Boy was I wrong !!! The major clientele that frequents this place are Hookers and their Johns. Don't believe the hype!!! You'd probably be safer sleeping on a park bench somewhere!! SMH

The bed smelled. The room was not clean at all. We booked it from priceline and the location turned out to be pretty awful within the area we selected, and creepy. The room did not have a proper lock.

So I am a 24 year old guy that has stayed in a lot of hotels so pulling into the parking lot I thought I could handle it.. Boy was I wrong! The rooms were not clean, rooms down the hall had just been bug bombed. There were two signs hanging on the bulletproof glass that I remember very well. They stated that there are no refunds along with a letter about prostitution. All in all, if you're not a rat I would advise you to look elsewhere

Ive never had an issue with galaxy or their staff the Staff could work on the clealiness more spider webs and mysterious stains aren't appealing .But It's not that bad for the price you pay and food and transportation is nearby. My main concern were the bedbugs the last time .I stayed decent prices but what you see is what you get and then some.

I base my rating of 4 out of 5 based on the fact, that I knew the kind of place we were going to. It's a low budget hotel, and yes they do rent rooms by the hour if requested.

But surprisingly, my stay there was a morning and afternoon, and it met all my expectations. Courteous quick staff, the room was of average size with a king, clean and well kept and well cooled. Bathroom was clean, had a leaky faucet, but big deal. TV with lots of channels worked, wi-fi worked, and the room was clean.

Seriously, for the price, I cannot complain in the least. I will def stay there again the next time I need a place to hang my hat for a while.

Anyone who complains about this hotel is just being picky. Honestly it's not that bad and what do you expect for such a cheap price? It's not going to be a 5 star haha. As long as you're not expecting many frills or a super lush environment, you're set. It's got all the amenities you'll need: a bed, tv, fridge, microwave, clean bathroom & heater/ ac.

Pros:
-The room is simple & very clean, so is the bathroom
-The heater in the room is amazing
-The tv is flat screen & nice & big
-Theres a microwave
-It's very close to a lot of places to eat (fast food etc.)
-The front desk & staff is pretty friendly
-The price you can't beat for new york

Cons:
-The taxi services they provide you with will rip you off! Use the yellow cabs with an actual meter, the ones they try and give you dont have meters & charged us $30 for 8 miles!
-The beds are fairly hard
-Lots of porn on tv (This wasn't nesassarily a bad thing since we are a young, fun couple, but I could imagine this being a con to anyone with kids.)
-The area is sorta rough looking, but we never had any problems
-They supposedly have wifi but its very slow at times
