“Been at this hotel for many years.”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

Clean and basic stay. Wide variety of cable channels, and most rooms have newly upgrade flat screen TV's and decently fast Wi-Fi internet. The staff is knowledgeable and should be considered a valuable resource in their own right. They'll tell you the pitfalls and gems to discover and avoid in New York City. Free bagels, cereal and Danish breakfast with coffee/tea. The rooms are dated. This isn't a new Holiday Inn Express, but overall it's a good value.

Room Tip: Well, the hotels sits under a runway approach for JFK airport, so if that is going to bother you it...

Reviewed 27 December 2012

We stayed at the Five Towns in over the holiday season when we traveled to new-york to see some relatives. My overall impression of the hotel was that it is a reasonable hotel to stay in if you want to be in this part of town. The rooms were basic (TV, desk, alarm clock, bed, dresser, bathroom) and clean. I wouldn't describe the decor as 'modern' or sparkling new but our room and the hallways were in good condition and left me no reason to complain.The hotel staff run a shuttle and were happy to pick us up and drop us off at the airport. Later they gave us a ride to the train station where we were able to catch a train into the city. When we came back after 11pm at night the hotel staff sent the shuttle back to the train station to pick us up again. The hotel staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. The hotel didn't have a restaurant but served a coffee/cereal breakfast. There are a number of retail plazas within a 3-6 block distance. The hotel is a 5-10 minute drive from JFK, this part of town isn't the most happening place to be in nor is it in the middle of nowhere.
