    « Good value in Queens area of NYC »

    We use this hotel whenever we visit our daughter in Queens. Not that convenient to get into Manhattan but the free off street parking is a real plus. Not a fancy hotel but a good safe place if you are staying in the Queens or Brooklyn area.

    « Clean »

    Overall it was a comfortable stay. Fresh breakfast, enough parking, right next to subway station (5-6 min walk). Lady in the breakfast area, Uma was more than helpful and provided us with the best breakfast.

    « FINE for a night or two. »

    Good location, neighborhood is fine. LOTS of restaurants of great variety - Italian, Indian, Chinese, Peruvian, fish, Spanish & American, a diner around the corner...& they all deliver. Will be using the JFK shuttle in the am. Room is a good size, yeah there are some street sounds, but hat is what I expect in NYC. It is not too bad. Staff very friendly. Clean. Cabs come quickly, but if you are not hauling tons of stuff, there are lots of busses & the subway, of course. I would stay here again.

    « Awful »

    Upon check in was Told they have no veins or pack n plays. So simply put nowhere for my baby to sleep! The room was dirty. Crumbs all over the floor. Shower pressure was awful. Front desk was no help. Told us to park below and we and t to go but cones were in the way so we had to call. He came out and moved the cones. He probably shouldn't have because the parking garage was like a dungeon. Anyone could walk in there, hijack your car or disassemble it for parts and no one would even know. So we came up and parked outside the hotel where there were actual lights. The hotel smells overall and is a dingy mess. Can't believe I spent $150 on this dump. Stay away.

    « Perfect hotel for the last night New York »

    The hotel is very convenient for when you want to spend your last day in New York. The airport is very close, around 15 min by car (if there is not too much traffic ;-). The hotel staff is very helpful! The rooms are clean and the breakfast is good enough to start the day. We enjoyed staying here!

    We always stay at this hotel. The location is perfect for us. we like the breakfast which is good, and the staff there is helpful. Also we like there because there is a frig and microwave in the room.

    « Best Choice Ever »

    This hotel is warm, comfortable, has friendly and accommodating staff. Fourty of us stayed for a 3 day business weekend without complaints. I would love to stay here again. Clean rooms, issues addressed promptly, no making of excuses. Very family and youth friendly.

    « good overall experience »

    good overall experience......proximity to the JFK airport, location, commute to other places, room service, staff friendly,room cleanliness and on top of everything reasonable rates. It's recommended for late night halts to catch up early morning flights

    « Needs improvement »

    Bring a mattress pad here... I could feel the springs through it like an old couch. NOT what I have come to expect at the Best Western chain! Had I been able to locate another room nearby at the time I would have switched hotels!

    « reasonable for new york »

    room was clean, staff friendly. close to jfk airport about 15-20 min by taxi. 5 min walk to subway and about an hour on subway to manhattan. breakfast was reasonable. the hotel have so good eating places close by. seemed a safe area

    « Good location for an early-morning flight »

    Good hotel, decent accommodations. The rooms are a good size for a NY hotel, and the prices tend to be lower than other nearby hotels. Our room was quiet, and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well-appointed. There was plenty of space to store clothing. The hotel offers free breakfast, but our flight was very early in the morning so we weren't able to stay for the 7:00 breakfast start time.

    « Decent but overpriced »

    We stayed for 8 nights in October for our NYC vacation, and overall it was a very good stay. 130$ per night is way too much for a 2* hotel in Queens, which is 30-50 mins by subway from the city, depends on where you go on Manhattan. Real price is more around 70-80 per night. 15 mins from subway, the area is a bit sketchy in the evening since there is no light on part of the road around subway station. Room itself is very comfortable, very nice bed and bathroom with a bath tub. After walking 20+ km every day it is nice for relaxation. Room was very clean and well cleaned. Staff is nice, especially Andrew and Uma. Breakfast is very nice, very filling. We would come back again if do not find better deal closer to the city.

    « A good place to stay in Jamaica, NY on a short business trip »

    Nice hotel at a reasonable rate in NYC. Almost equal distance from LGA and JFK airports.Friendly staff and hot breakfast . Free Wifi and a fitness room for standard exercises.Recommend this Hotel for a short business trip near the area.

    « Good location.. BUT... »

    I stayed here on my trips to NYC over the past 5 years. I am a NY'er so I know the good, bad and ugly parts of Queens. I do like the microwave and fridge in the room. The parking is not great at all especially if the SHORT STAY MOTEL JETS INN is having a busy night. They try to split the parking between the two, but very hard to do. Street Parking is not great either as there is a large apartment building across the street from the hotel. There is a good Diner - Flag ship and to get a NY Bodega Breakfast a place called Spiros ( they deliver ) is also down the block. If you are not use to the noise of street cars/horns honking or just the hustle n bustle of NY bring ear plugs.

    « very good staff »

    « My favorite place to stay in NY »

    Excellent location and great service. Whenever we travel to New York we choose to stay at Best Western in Jamaica, NY. It is right in our comfort zone and we are so familiar with the area. It backs up to Queens blvd with easy access to the subway, busses, restaurants and shopping. For the last 12 years we have always stayed there whenever in New York. The only time I was not able to stay with them was after Sandy.

    « My hotel of choice when visiting NYC »

    I love this hotel! Its clean, easily accessible from both major NYC airports, walking distance from public transportation, offers free parking, decent complimentary breakfast and most of all, quite affordable.

    « Clean Rooms, Friendly staff, Great on a budget »

    I have nothing bad to say about this hotel (except maybe the cold scrambled eggs and sausage, but then again nobody's perfect, that's what the microwave is for). My room was clean, housekeeping was friendly; sorry i couldn't tip more. The only downside to staying here is that not much shopping around, so having a car is vital. There's a lovely Christian store around the corner, a diner within walking distance and basic needs shops - like a pharmacy and a so-called 99c and up store. There is no airport shuttle however, so be prepared to pay for a cab if you need to get to the airport.

    « Great Stay at Best Western Jamaica Inn »

    The staff was very helpful and kind. Made us feel comfortable and welcomed. Assisted in printing a document my daughter needed for moving into her University. Assisted us with question pertaining to the area since it was our first time in New York.

    « Bad staff and authorities »

    The room service staff is very friendly, however, the higher authorities are very rude and nosy. The rooms were clean, they provide nice breakfast and the breakfast lady was also very nice. It's just the management people were rude, it's very bothering. Otherwise it's a nice hotel for a week stay.

    « great staff, nice rooms »

    Awesome staff at the hotel, very good internet, nice rooms size, very clean, close to two subways line , 35 minutes away from Manhattan , nice parking area inside and outside, very good breakfast , very close to two main airports but the most important, was the service provided by the general manager Mr. rey A. Torres taking very good care of all guests during our stay !!!! Thank you again !!!!

    « My New York stay »

    Hotel is in great need of renovation but the rooms were clean, good size and comfortable. Breakfast was good, just recommending some potatoes, but I had a great stay and will do it again on my next NY trip.

    « Clean, comfortable, value for money »

    Nice efficient hotel; very good location; very good breakfast; great room; friendly and helpful staff; professional and error-free handling of reservation and check-in/check-out; very good value for money. Appreciate free parking. Will recommend to friends/family. Force of water in shower and A/C unit noise level could have been improved.

    « Friendly People; Clean Rooms near JFK »

    After 30 hours of international travel and the Delta computer crisis, Uma was the best part of our stay. She was in charge of breakfast. She was friendly and helpful. In fact, the entire staff could not have done more to make our staff (while brief) comfortable and enjoyable.

    5
    « Great Staff - Highly Recommend »

    The Hotel was very clean, the A/C worked very well and the pillows and beds were great! Being away from home is hard sometimes when you don't have the comfort of home. We enjoyed the breakfast, loved the staff and the beds, pillows and room were very clean and comfortable. A+ for this location! Briarwood Cafe was great, Key Foods was across the street if we needed anything and Dominos was right there for pickup. Great coffee and breakfast was a bonus!

    4
    « Nice and clean »

    It is a simple but well taken care of hotel with everything you need without being fancy. There was a variety of selections for breakfast, but what we liked best was the waffles and Umas' friendly smile. It is close to the subway (5 min walk) but the ride to Manhattan takes 30-45 min, depending on if you get an express train or not.

    5
    « Great hotel near F & E lines in Queens »

    I stayed here for a week while visiting for work and was very pleased with my stay. The hotel had free parking, a huge surprise to me, and also had several good breakfast options in the morning. It's a short walk to the F and E lines, convenient for getting to Manhattan and the other boroughs and is nearby some pretty good food options. This hotel was a huge treat for the cheap price I paid for my stay. I would definitely recommend it, and will likely stay here again if and when I return to NYC for work.

    « Group visit »

    Perfect place to stay with a group. Free WI FI, Free parking, free breakfast. Location is close to subway, restaurants, groceries, gas station, staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms are a little small but clean and neat, beds are comfortable. We stayed 5 nights and had good service the whole time.

    « Stay here without hesitation! »

    My church group & I stayed here for a full week & were extremely pleased. No problems. The staff does go out of their way for you. I spoke to Alfie several times before arriving & he was always accommodating & helpful. Sonny was there when we checked in & through our first weekend there & again top notch staff. The beds are comfy, the a/c is a great relief when coming back from a full hot day out! It is about 10 mins walking away from train or bus. Breakfast is great: scrambled eggs, sausage, cinnamon or regular waffles, sliced american cheese, yogurt, bagels & cream cheese, toast & jelly, OJ, apple juice, special hot coffee beverages, fruit, & more. The breakfast lady is also so very nice & will do whatever she can to make your breakfast time just what you need to start your day. Entire building is very clean. There is enough parking. Just a very enjoyable time & we thank God we had such a super place to come back to after sharing Jesus Christ through our missions trip there. Super great!

    « Enough parking lot and very loud street noise »

    This motel was moderate for NYC travel because metro station is nearby and parking lot is very spacious and around this motel was very safe. However, I didn't sleep because of very loud highway noise. If you are sensitive about noise, Avoid this motel. But, I could sleep from the second night since I was so much tired of hard travel in NYC. This motel is very good unless you have noise problem.

    « OK for a overnight »

    stayed at this hotel multiple times when traveling, it's about 10 mins from JFK airport. The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly, they offered free parking which is a plus. try to get the rooms in the back as the hotel is facing a major highway.

    « Great Stay »

    The room is small, but overall it was clean, close to subways, breakfast was good. I will definitely stay here again. Free Parking, Free Breakfast that's hard to find in NY. Lady name Uma, was great keeping on top of the breakfast area, she is a caring person. A hard working lady.

    « Ok for sleep »

    Wifi free and good. Room size small for three. Toilet looks clean, towels without smell. Amenities available. Shower with water flow good. Pillow, mattress and blanket ok. Air conditioner functioning well. Location good. breakfast ok. Housekeeping ok. Hotel staffs' attitude are good. Free parking.

    « Room Deposit? »

    This is my first experience of having to leave a room deposit placed on my credit card before checking in. I was quite uncomfortable with this especially without prior notice from Best Western when making this reservation. What would have happen if I only had enough $ to cover the room and not the deposit? For me, this adds up to poor customer service and a lack of consideration for people who travel.

    5
    « Excellent accommodation »

    From checkin to checkout I was extrememly satisfied with the staff and conditions during my stay. I will certainly be staying here again on my next stay in Queens. The breakfast offering is great - the fruit was fresh and the coffee tasty.

    « Good Value »

    Great value, location was good, room was clean and adequate. Breakfast and free on site parking are a bonus especially in New York City area.Staff was courteous and helpful.Only draw back was some nearby expressway road noise filtering into room.

    « Not Bad »

    Staying two nights here. Overall, I have no complaint. Two thumps up for letting me check in early. My flight arrived early at 10:00 AM and I smoothly checked in. Free breakfast is not really fantastic but what you pay is what you get. Room is okay. Overall, it's a okay hotel.

    « Nothing special about this hotel. It's air condition is so old that it makes such big noise. »

    The staff was helpful. The room was not as spacious as the description, I think the tripadvisor description is not true. The air condition is really old and make tremendous noise, but I had to use it because if you open the window the traffic noise is even worse. But the bath is super clean and the bed is very big and comfortable. I probably won't stay there again though as there is no JFK airport shuttle comes nearby. You have to spend extra 20 USD to get there. I arrive very late at night due to the fly. There is no grocery store to get food. Only a small petro shop that sell crisps. The hotel didn't provide drinking water. You have to get your water from machine. I think it is not very nice at such late night.

    « Great location and staff »

    The staff here is amazing!! They make you feel like family. The hotel is located right off the highway or a short walk from the subway. Great Location!! Great Price!! This was our first time in New York and I am glad we stayed here. They made our stay more pleasant. Would definitely stay here again!!

    « BEST WESTERN of New York »

    While my family and I were visiting New York City, we stayed at BEST WESTERN - Jamaica Inn. The room provided for us was comfortable and had everything we needed. They also had a breakfast bar, which was well stocked and had a wide variety as well as maps and brochures that provided helpful suggestions for where to go. The staff there are pleasant and polite like Mr. Alfie of the Front Desk. Not only was he pleasant and polite, he was helpful, friendly, and accommodating.

    « good hotel for the price »

    friendly and clean hotel, close to JFK airport and few steps to subway E - 30 minutes to city centre. Rooms are usual, clean bathrooms. Only thing is they do not provide baby cots... Breakfast is sufficient, the woman there treated our 1-year old boy like her own, he got what he wanted and what was not on the table usualy. Thank you for that!

    5
    « Pleasant Stay / Convenient Location »

    I have stayed at this hotel in the past, and have found the location convenient. The subway is within walking distance and close to restaurants. Alfie checked me in and out this time and I found him to be friendly, efficient and very helpful. The room was small but clean and adequate, the internet worked well, and the breakfast was very good, The attendant (I didn't get her name) was friendly and efficient and attentive to keep filling items when near empty. The housekeeping staff were also friendly. If you are looking for a hotel that is convenient and the prices are lower than a hotel in New York, and a friendly atmosphere, this would be the place to stay in Queens.

    4
    « Good value for money in Queens »

    It's a pretty good room and bed for what you pay, and even if it's in Queens, if you want to visit Manhattan you'll get there in a 30-40 min subway ride. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. Basic gym appreciated. Breakfast was felt as low-quality and could be improved.

    « Good deal but sound-proof windows needed »

    Everything was good compare to the paid price. I would definetly go back to the hotel more often if the windows were better and blocked the noise coming from the highway. People were great and helpfull. The hotel is a little far from the city but if you know your way using the subway, you are max 30-45 min to Manhattan... not bad in NYC. Close to JFK was also a good deal for us.

    « Comfortable quiet rooms and a great breakfast »

    The staff of this hotel are exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and the bed mattress was of good quality - made for a great night sleep. Ample shower pressure and nice bathroom. The best part though I have to admit is the breakfast where I enjoyed my homemade waffle, yummy eggs, surprisingly good coffee, yogurt (they even had the good Greek kind) and a nice variety of cereal, juice, and fruits. The location is convenient and easy to find and get to. I will definitely stay here again.

    « First Visit to New York »

    This was our first visit to New York and we chose this hotel as it was fairly close to JFK and had convenient surroundings. The drive from the airport to the hotel was about 15 minutes and once we got there, we were greeted by a friendly hotel clerk who checked us in very swiftly. We stayed on the fourth and highest floor of the hotel and once we got in the room, there was indeed a slight smell of smoke but as time went on, this was no longer noticeable. The bathroom was a decent size, the beds were pretty comfortable and the layout of the room was nice. The microwave that was available was really convenient. The electrical sockets seem like they need replacing as they are pretty loose. One moment you're charging your phone, the next moment the charger is on the floor. The channel selection for the TV could have been better but this wasn't a big deal as this was pretty much just a place to sleep. Housekeeping was good and the rooms were always kept clean. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good as it had a good bit to choose from which ranged from juices, coffee, tee, eggs, sausages, different types of bread, bagels, pastries, different types of cereals and a good selection of fruits and yogurts. It was pretty much everything you need from a continental breakfast. Uma, the breakfast room staff member was really friendly and kind. She was always willing to help in any way possible. This hotel has a really good location with regards to the subway station, shopping, and restaurants. Queens Center Mall is a 20 minute drive away and that mall is really nice. The Briarwood Van Wyck subway station is a 5 minute walk away and so are restaurants like the Flagship Diner, Subway, Domino's, McDonalds, KFC, Wendy's, and Dunkin' Donuts. There were also a variety of grocery stores nearby. Heading into NYC was fairly easy as well due to this nearby subway station. Through communicating with MTA representatives, getting into the city was a good experience and took about 30 or 40 minutes. Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend this hotel as somewhere to stay if you are looking for a cheaper option.

    « Great stay for a visit in NYC »

    « Love it here »

    I will always stay here. It's clean, staff is friendly and helpful, continental breakfast is good, and prices are decent. This was my 4th stay here, and I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. Very happy with my stay.

    « Only good thing was the bed »

    I booked this hotel for a night while waiting for a long layover at the airport. After booking, I wish I would have just stayed at the airport. The place I booked it from said it offered shuttle service, I get there and they don't. They are undergoing construction so the whole lobby area is blocked off and you have to walk around the hotel to get into the back. Not ideal when you have luggage or are in a hurry. The location of the place was hard for the Uber driver to pick us up from the next morning. The heat didn't work in the room at all, actually the window wouldn't even completely close. There was a cockroach in my room (granted, this didn't bother me since it happens often in NYC). The ONLY good thing about the room was the bed was super comfy and I was able to sleep quickly so at least I didn't have to stay awake to let the crappyness of the room bother me. It may be fine for a cheap overnight stay, but would I recommend it? Definitely not.

    « Compassionate Staff »

    My mother has stayed at this location for 3 weeks due to a family health emergency at a nearby hospital. As stressful and disheartening as the situation is, we find comfort in the hotel's staff. Over the past few weeks, everyone here has rallied behind and supported my mother with their prayers, compassion, and care. Being from out of town, we would've never expected the support from the team here. Every morning, my mother is greeted by Uma, who manages the hotel's breakfast. She has been so kind, and sweet to my mother. Her words of support have been instrumental in making my mother feel welcomed and comfortable at a time of emergency. I'm so grateful for Uma, and the rest of the hotel staff's compassion and support in my family's time of need. Thank you so much.

    « Pleasant Stay »

    This is an older hotel but very nicely kept. The staff was very pleasant and very courteous and addressed all my questions and concerns. I traveled to this hotel from VA. I stayed here the night before the Blizzard2016. I booked one night but at check-in I requested a second night. The staff was concern that I was going to stay another night in light of the upcoming storm. I took the staff's advice and stayed only one night. It was good advice. If I had stayed another night I would have been stranded for 3 additional nights. I would stay here again without question.

    « Good budget hotel »

    I stayed at this hotel for one night with my family. The hotel is conveniently located very near to the JFK Airport. The rooms are clean and free parking is available at the hotel. The breakfast is normal affair. A special mention for the lady who manages the breakfast buffet, she is very helpful and caring.

    « My stay was awesome »

    I cannot explain the professionalism from the staff at the Best Western. It is the only hotel in the New York area that is reasonable and clean. I have recommended this hotel to all of my family members and friends. I wish everyone could have the experience of staying at the Best Western hotel. No one is running down the hallways screaming and fighting. I felt safe while I was there and always have.

    « Nice Hotel »

    We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. the room was always clean and the staff was very friendly. I wouldn't go to breakfast if you feel awkward easily; the woman in charge of breakfast will pester you throughout your meal about filling out a survey about the food.

    « Who did use my credit card? »

    I have been in hotel Best Western Jamaica,in Queens ,New York till 12 th to 17 thDecember of 2015. My small bag with christmas gifts have been dissapeared ,but i am fine.But wheni recognized,that in1 th january my card has been used by somebody for toys in Brooklyn and Bronx i started to be mad. Iam in Europe from 17 th december 2015 and somebody used my ID from my credit card in 1 th january 2016 in NY. I wrote to hotel about this issue,what has been happened,but nobody answered me.So,i suppose,that only staff from reception of this hotel had time to use my ID and security number of my card..And my necles and gifts from my room were disappered also.I did receive any answer from managment of this hotel and only i have to make reservation by my no credit card ,but by my bank in future.

    The staff was very helpful, friendly and the hotel room was nice. When coming back in the hotel was right off the beaten path. Made driving easy, not far at all from shopping. Jamaica Avenue the best.

    « Always a pleasure »

    When in NY we always try to book this Hotel. We have been staying there whenever we come to NY except the year of the terrible 'Sandy" That was the only time that there was no availability. This hotel is close to public transportation with a short trip to NYC. Buses come buy frequently. Close to shopping area. It is always a pleasure to stay here. The service is very good. Just a very pleasant place to stay.

    The overall stay was great. the marijuana smoking was a little uncomfortable at times. The staff told me that they cannot promise that there is no smoking marijuana in the Non Smoking rooms. I felt that was unacceptable. The Breakfast does not cater to people that do not eat pork buy products.

    « Friendly Staff, Good Location »

    It's several minutes walk to subway (line E/F) and there is supermarket nearby as well as coffee shop / take out restaurant. I booked the place for a friend who is in NYC for US Open tennis tournament and stayed with her for two nights. From the hotel to Flushing was about 30-45 minutes subway ride (depending on which time of the day you travel), convenient enough with competitive price. I like that there is a microwave and a small fridge in the room, very helpful in summer! One thing though, the air conditioner is very loud so it might take a while to fall asleep at night... The staff there are very friendly. Breakfast is simple but acceptable. Parking is free so that's great, and the hotel is right by express way entrance.

    I was satisfied with my stay at this hotel. Enjoyed New York City. However, I just was a little disappointed with the lack of curtsy and respect some of those who were staying in their respected rooms and smoking in a non-smoking room.

    « Good location and close to citi field »

    Very good place for the price we paid for the rooms. Very friendly staff. Enjoyed my stay with my friends. I would certainly comeback to this place. If you are planning to attend an event at citi field then this is a good place to stay

    « Great Location »

    Each time I stay at this facility, I encounter a very professional front desk agent with wonderful communication skills and polite temperament. Whish quite refreshing after a long travel. The rooms are very clean and comfortable as well. The location is near High ways to get me to various destinations. The eateries are near by, making this hotel very convenient for me. Just a great place to stay.

    « Just to spend a night before a flight »

    Old hotel, old rooms. I appreciate the breakfast though. Is what you get for the price paid. If you plan to stay there, plan to take a taxi to move around or walk to the subway. The area is a bit sketchy. We stayed there just for a night before taking a plane out of JFK

    « Tired and overpriced »

    I wanted an overnight stop close to JFK after picking up a rental car and thought this looked okay. The area is dodgy, the hotel tired and the rooms shabby. Free wifi as a Best Western member was the only real redeeming feature. Parking was limited and non-secure, while breakfast in the basement 'restaurant' was basic and largely unappealing. Overall I can't recommend it.

    WE have stayed at Best Western, Jamaica Inn ,NY more than once. The price is right. plus the breakfast is always nice.The rooms are nice and clean. Whenever we are know we are visiting NY reservations are made at Best Western. Since we drive there is always parking. So we do not have to ride around looking for a place to park.

    « Staff was friendly! Accommodations are run down. »

    This property is advertised as a 'JFK area hotel' but they do not have a shuttle to and from the airport :(. It cost $25 to catch a yellow cab to the hotel, and we needed two cabs, so that added cost was not fun. The almost all of the front desk staff we encountered, and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast room and exercise rooms are both tiny and underground, and stuffy. The breakfast food was typical egg-products, some sausage, bagels, sliced bread, and pastries, bananas and apples, juice from a machine, coffee and tea, etc. The hotel's hallways are very narrow. Rooms were functional, and the A/C worked nicely, but everything was older and not very pretty. Hotel is far from any restaurant, store, or interesting place to go. The subway was several blocks away. Walkable, but not super close. Hotel was not terrible, but for the price it still felt kinda disappointing.

    « Clean, Convenient and Priced Right. »

    I had many places to go in the Queens/Long Island area, and this was central for me.. Friendly staff and moderate cost were factors in my choice. I would stay again.. And there is a Greatkosher deli/restaurant nearby since 1945 (?) with outstanding pastrami too..

    « Good choice at short notice »

    I had decided to change my hotel booking at short notice due to the deteriorating reviews of the New World Hotel in Chinatown. As it was so near my departure date my choice within my budget was limited. I was really pleased with my choice. Firstly the hotel is quite near JFK. It is within walking distance of the F & E train. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast was as advertised. I travel alone so felt secure in the room by myself.. The only time I felt concerned was walking back from Briarwood Van Wyck late in the evening as you have to walk along a deserted service road. It is much safer to use the E train station to Jamaica Van Wick. Nothing much to do in the area but the locals were friendly. The room was clean. I never managed to work out how to use the coffee maker ( I did not ask anyone) but the fridge and microwave in the room are useful. The water pressure was good and the hotel was not noisy. All in all a good choice

    « Trip to NYC »

    We went to New York city to see some shows and do some shopping. The hotels in Manhattan are fairly expensive. This hotel is convenient to a Metro station; 10 minutes walk.and a 40 minute subway ride to Manhattan Room was reasonable for New York prices. Breakfast was good.

    « Terrible! Not concerned about your safety at all! »

    I reserved a room for 2 nights here (Sept 19-20, 2015). Confirmation sent via email says NO NEED to call to confirm, so I trusted that I would come to a nice place to crash into after a long flight. When I got there at 1AM after a grueling 26 hours flight, I was just informed the system cancelled on me and there is nothing the receptionist can do about it because it automatically cancels out if unable to make a successful transaction through a guest's credit card (I don't understand why they claim they were unable to charge my card when I was able to use the same card for the hotel I found within the vicinity later on!) Despite my begging for consideration or some workaround (it was my first time in NY, I'm a woman, I was very tired, it was midnight and chilly outside at that!) this guy at the front desk never lifted a finger to dial any of his neighboring hotels' numbers to check if there could be any room for me. He just said his piece and then pretended I was not there. I walked from one hotel to another to find a place for me to rest. I found one at around 4am. Booking with Best Western is the dumbest decision I made.

    « Convenient airport hotel »

    Stayed here after a cruise as our flight left the next day. Staff were efficient and friendly. The room was small but adequate and clean. No airport noise. No room service but we were provided with several takeaway options which were cheap and delivered to our room. Shuttle to the airport was great.

    The motel is located near JFK and very convenient to meet business associates at the air port. The parking is next to the motel. The rooms are sufficient size for an overnight stay. You've accidentally repeated some letters/characters. Please delete them and try again.

    I have stayed at this hotel for weeks at a time with groups of youth that were in town for a missions trip. The first year, I had a youth get sick and the staff was INCREDIBLE in helping us. They kept asking how he was doing after he left. The breakfast was great and the lady who works down there has been a sweetheart. The rooms were great! No complaints- always clean. Location was great with the subway being 2-3 blocks away. A Dunkin Donuts is 2 blocks away as is a grocery store. Love this hotel

    « Disappointed after a long drive »

    We chose this property because of its location to JFK. We had a morning flight and drove up from Annapolis the night before. Bullet proof glass at check in?? Ok i have never seen that at any hotel I have ever stayed in. Room was as promised with two queen beds but cleanliness was lacking. Bedding, carpet and bathroom all were well worn. Bathroom sink did not drain, We were there for less than 8 hours so we did not have management address it. I feel that housekeeping could have realized it did not drain during the room's last cleaning but chose to ignore the problem. We did notify the front desk at check out in hopes it will be fixed for the next guest. breakfast was also as promised with a number of choices. Unfortunately i would not go back nor can I recommend this property to fellow travelers
