... to pick them up. After picking up the passes, we made a stop by BMG to drop off a comp card for Morgan. She did a great job speaking to the people about herself. I was super proud of her! We made two more stops for her to drop off cards, but decided it would be best to email them first for appointments since some agencies have open call times and some do not. So, that is on the to-do list before tomorrow's excursions.

We spent quite a lot of time wandering around the statue 'checking her out' from all angles before getting a boat back to Manhattan via Ellis Island. The views from the boat of the Manhattan skyline are very impressive. We recommend doing any kind of boat tour (or the free Staten Island Ferry) to see NYC from the water.

    Thanksgiving in NYC

    For our first time in NYC, this was such a great place to stay! Service is excellent, and the location is great! The rooms were clean and cozy, and even though each floor had to share a bathroom, the bathroom was also clean and well stocked. It was a very short walk to numerous attractions, and the Hudson River and Central Park were both visible from the fire-escape!

    Would not recommend....

    from

    I mean the place is rundown and it smells, bottomline. If you are young and just looking to party in NYC, then it might suffice. If you have a girlfriend then skip this dive. The maids do their best (they do actually clean well), but there is only so much they can do. It is one of those places you feel like you are dirty again after stepping out of the shower. It is a great location though.

    Never again

    from

    Worst hotel ever! A shabby place. Never again.

    What can you expect for $79???

    from

    I thought this was a great place to stay! a friend and I stayed there in May 2004 and had a great time. It is ideal for travellers who are going to be spending most of thier time outside of the room. we stayed on the 6th floor and had no problems with bugs/rats or other guests, the staff was friendly and we were checked in and out very quickly. The beds were changed daily and new towels were brought to us, the whole hotel had a great feel (but not so great smell) and the neighborhood was beautiful. what more can you ask for when only spending $79 in the upper west side???...the shared bathrooms were very clean and in 5 days I didn't have to wait once, the water temp. does change on it's own but otherwise it's great!..I will stay there again and I hope that if you are looking for a safe, clean, cozy and cheap place to stay that you consider this place!!

    Not even as a last resort!!!!

    from

    OK yes the staff are friendly, the location is great & one of the bathrooms on the floor I was on was almost brand new, however that's about all that's good about this place. The description on a number of travel websites sound good for a budget place, esp in Manhattan. However, where do I start when describing this rabbit warren... firstly I made a reservation, I rang to say I was on a late flight-all OK apparently but when I arrived I was listed as a no-show. So did they sell my room? Were there any vacancies? No! But it took them over 45 minutes to check me in & in the process they showed me to 4 rooms in different parts of the building (each building has its own unique 'shabiness')- all unmade, dirty(sheets and rubbish everywhere,including an old airconditioner just ditched under a table.Seriously looked like a brothel or the aftermath of a party). My reservation stated "a twin room including fridge, radio & shared bath." They showed me 4 rooms not because they were dirty and unmade but because the reception were determined to put me into a single room. They finally found me a room, again unmade and dirty but I was so tired by this point I didn't really care. They gave me clean sheets. I had to make the bed myself-thankfully I had a sleeping bag as the blankets were less than clean. I also threw all the garbage into a corner. I fell asleep with a cockroach crawling across the wall and woke up to some guy screaming for someone to get out of the bathroom! Spend an extra $10 to stay in a local B&B or in the Y!

    Do not stay here!!!! Credit Card # Stolen

    from

    In December I read the reviews for this place and though it only had one bad review, my husband and I decided to stay here. One because there were no hotels available the week before Christmas and two, being in a band you don't have alot of money to spend on a place to sleep.We arrived on a Friday and were met by a friendly front desk person. We were shown to our room in the non smoking section of the hotel. The building is old, and looks like it, but hey, it was warm and and the doors had a lock. The bed was clean, the room was clean and the shared bathroom was cleaned. We were to leave on Saturday but decided to stay an extra night. This was not planned but they put us up with no trouble at all.So why not stay here? BECAUSE MY CREDIT CARD NUMBER WAS STOLEN!!!! Along with another couple we know that were staying there. I was lucky enough to catch the charges before they got outrageous. But my friend's card was charged over $1,000!!!Again, do not stay here....Lord knows we won't and we will be telling everyone we know not too.BEWARE!

    Don't even think about it....

    from

    I was stunned at how poor this hotel was. It's the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, and can certainly be classified as a dive. It had two things going for it. It's very inexpensive (my room was $50 a night), and the front desk staff were friendly enough. Other than that, my single room was tiny, with a small single bed. The walls were in desperate need of a paint job (there were black streaks all over the place, not to mention dried mucus); the dresser had 3 missing handles (plus one that was dangling down, as it was missing a screw); stains on the sheets and on the chair in the room; noisy radiator. The room door had a small lock on it and the door seemed like it was ready to fall off. The shared bathroom seemed okay, but on the first evening was missing a lock. (The following morning they installed one, at 8 AM, which took about a half hour of drilling while I was trying to still sleep.) The hallways and front entrance are pretty horrendous. They are old and shabby, and wires are dangling down in a few places. While going to my room, some permanent tenants appeared ready to pick a fight with the front-desk clerk over past rent payments and room upgrades.

    Clean and Warm....

    from

    I would have to agree with the other reviews about this hotel. We stayed here because we just couldn't pass up the price since all we would be doing was sleeping there. The rooms are clean and warm. Just your basics though, do not expect anymore than that. We had a clean bed with cable television, a dresser, closet, nightstand and a refrigerator. The staff was extremley friendly and very helpful. I never once had a problem with people using the bathroom when I needed it. It was also cleaned every morning. It's not a gorgeous hotel, but it works for the budget minded traveler. I will stay here again on our next trip to NY.

    Would Go There Again

    from

    The lobby and hallways are in desperate need of a facelift, and finding your room through the winding maze of corridors can be a bit challenging, but the room was decent and had cable TV, a mini fridge and a sink. An added bonus was that because this hotel is located on the end of a street, it was pretty quiet for New York. Not a lot of street traffic going by at 4 in the morning. The shared bathroom was ok, but I'd bring shower shoes next time.

    Great value for money, clean & warm

    from

    Don't be put off by the shabby entrance hall and dingy corridors. Friendly staff, and a great location for the Upper West Side, near 72 st. subway. Building work starts early next door (7:30 am) but otherwise it's very quiet.

    More than adequate and an amazing deal

    from

    I was very surprised to find a 60 dollar hotel rate in Manhattan, and feared the worst, but found the hotel to be perfectly fine during an October 2002 visit.
