Reviewed 3 July 2014

Stayed at this hotel when coming with an overseas flight as I didn't want to pick up the rental car and drive to the destination in the night after such a long flight. The good thing about this place is its close proximity to JFK, the free shuttle service and the relatively budget price. The shuttle service will also take you for free to the rental car area upon request. The standard of the hotel is not particularly high, but again, it's the above points that talk to its advantage. Also, do not expect the same standard of breakfast as you would expect from an equivalent place in Europe (it is not even on par with a youth hostel in Western Europe). One thing not so good with the room we got was that it did not have any closets for hanging clothes. Hopefully, other rooms do have closets. Despite certain weaknesses, the place gets a 4-star rating for the three strong points above.

Great inn if you're stuck at JFK. They have an efficient and free shuttle to transport you to the hotel and back.

The staff was nice and friendly and the free breakfast totally ok.

The rooms were comfortable and very clean. Overall a great place to stay if you need to stay the night because your flight is cancelled or delayed.

Perfect for a layover between flights.

Staff is so nice - they treat each other and their guests like family.

In walking distance is a Burger King, iHop, Kmart, Subway deli, Applebees and panera.

Area is a little dicey. Would walk out at night alone, but shuttle will drive you.

24 hours continental breakfast in lobby.

Non-stop shuttle service to JFK.

The hotel was great for the price. Near many places to get food and shop. Everyone at the desk was extremely nice. We had no issues with our room. We had 2 doubles and were traveling with our boys. It's nice to go into a hotel also and see smiles on the housekeeping stuff.

Clean and quiet rooms. I was surprised how quiet the rooms are considering how busy the road in front of the hotel is and JFK Airport is right next door. Very friendly and courteous staff. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Perusing online leads for a place near JFK. What a find. Personal service a few miles from the usual airport options. Great shuttle service to the hotel and local restaurant to pick up food as we arrived late at night. Steve the shuttle driver terrific as was Frankie at the desk. Room just fine and met our needs for the shirt stay . We will return we we have layover again. Definitely give this hotel consideration..close to shops small town so able to do things beside being captive at a large hotel next to runways !

We were stranded at JFK during a recent snowstorm and the airlines placed us at the Five Towns Inn. We were greeted warmly and checked in within a minute. The room was clean, spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed the coffee and cakes in the lobby and the location next to a couple of restaurants made a late night dinner convenient. The room towels were very thin and there were a couple of housekeeping carts in the hallway at 10 pm. It seems they clean rooms 24/7 due to the high turnover from flight crews and such. We did not enjoy the morning breakfast due to an early flight or any other on-site amenities. Overall a nice place to stay.
