Maybe the worst hotel I have ever stayed in

The best thing this place has going for it is a roof. The rooms do not have heat -- isn't illegal? Or immoral? This is not in the description. Also, the room in the descriptions looks nothing like the room you will get -- they look itchy and as if time -- and cleaning materials-- may have forgotten them. The management did not want to give me the two bed room I paid for -- telling me they were all booked up -- until I made a scene. The fact that there is hotel open that doesn't provide heat -- but a heater!-- is a travesty. A disgrace. This made me want to reconsider using this service to book a hotel in the future. This is kind of place you go to a cheap day-screw. Not much good to say about this place at all.

Convenient for Comic-Con

Usually I stay at the Yotel for New York Comic Con, but this year I was splitting the room with a friend, so we decided to try out the Travel Inn instead. In terms of cleanliness and convenience, the room was great. Compared to other New York hotels, it was definitely more affordable. The street noise was a problem, until I put in earplugs. My only complaint is that I requested an inner room overlooking the pool, was told that was fine, and then was given a room over the street. Overall, I was pleased with my experience and will stay here again next year.

Go to 44 1/2 on 44th and 10th for brunch (make a reservation). The food was delicious, the staff was great, and the pop music playlist had us all dancing in our seats.

Excellent

Everything was perfect except no WI-FI. I'm originally from Makaysia and in Malaysia (developing country) we can provide wifi on the lobby free of charge, how come in New York I need to pay for wifi even though I'm in the hotel lobby. Require serious management input?????

great location - not so great rooms

super close to times square which is a huge plus. the room itself was just okay and the bed/pillows just okay too. the bathroom door in my room actually locked you in the bathroom! you couldn't get out. good thing i wasn't alone! has a pool - saw people in it when we arrived but when we inquired about it, the staff said it was closed for the season. huh?? weird.

Moderatley Good NY Hotel

Good hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Not a bad location, but subway and buses were needed to access most attractions. Theater Row Diner - good breakfast only a block away. Newspaper availability would be nice.

New York night

We booked this hotel because we needed a room close by the cruise terminal. It could not have been better. We were a 15 minute walk from Penn Station and a 17 minute walk from the cruise terminal! we were a short walk from the Heartand Brewery, an excellent restaurant with wonderful entrees, yummy beers and knowledgeable waitstaff! The room was comfortable and overlooked a huge pool. We would definitely stay there again.

Fab hotel in fab location

Had seen other comments so knew/hoped we 'd made the right choice and we had. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for a stay in NY. Ignore the comments you may see about the shower/bathroom - its perfectly adequate and loads of hot water so what more do you want? Nice big comfy bed. The addition of the fridge in the room made it perfect. The pool is lovely when you're tired hot and achey after a days sightseeing and if you're lucky enough with the weather which we were in late Aug) the chance to lie in the sun and just relax is heavenly! Great that its a walk away from the madness of the Times Square crowds but close enough to pop there in the evening. Great subway location and don't listen to anyone berating the subway - it's fab. we hopped on and off all over the place and a weekly metro ticket is a steal! Great Hotel, Great Holiday! Loving NY and want to come back soon :)

Do all the usual but also "go off-piste" and see the real NY - recommend Union Square, Eataly, the High Line, Williamsburg (see Manhatten from the othe side)

No Longer Has Free Parking - Extremely Disappointed!

We have stayed at The Travel Inn MANY times and have recommended it to many friends. Our favorite feature is the free parking - the only hotel in Manhattan, in fact. Well, they are no longer unique - on our last visit they informed us (when we arrived at 1am after a long drive in torrential rains) that they now charge $30/night extra for parking. When we explained that we were unaware they changed this policy and that that played a huge factor in choosing them, they were unapologetic. We turned around and left, spending 30 minutes finding free street parking and getting back to our room at 2am. We will not stay here again after this experience and unfriendly service.
