13/9 Did the final 250 miles and ended up in New York city - quite by accident, but in the rush hour. It was not good!!! We then got terribly lost, but finally ended up at the JFK airport, and after trying many, found a room for the last two nights. Ordered a takeaway and bed - not the best ending to our wonderful year.
14/9 So …
It was about 11:45pm when we arrived at the Best Western Kennedy Airport. The check in process went smoothly and the desk clerk was extremely pleasant. Our room was very clean and comfortable ... but very small. It is obvious that people spend very little time at the hotel.
It was a little after midnight before we were all settled in bed …
... pack-and-play and car seat, and a carry-on for each of us, including Abby. Oh, and the stroller. We needed a stretch limo... We actually upgraded our rental car in Ireland to a van this morning. Yikes! Anyway, once at the airport, the porter whisked us to the first class check in area where we were greeted by the most courteous and cultured staff imaginable. Now, this is funny. First class and business class use ...
... cities, NYC has a very strong gravitational force. Its hard to escape. Brunch was at Roberts, a nice restaurant at the top of the Design and Arts Museum in Columbus Circle. Nice jazz band playing with a view out to Central Park. Food was just ok but the ambiance was really nice. Had a great time catching up.
After brunch, Yang wanted to visit West Village again to ...
I had a spinning pole class in the afternoon. I was very anxious of running late again, but it didn’t motivate me enough to come in early. I was just in time, again! After class I was rushing to get home to get ready for the Queensnight party in Manhattan. But I had to deal with my phoneplan first. Tomorrow the monthly contract ends so I to go to a T-Mobile store again to fix it. But without any trouble I got it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Kennedy Airport Jamaica
Cheap hotel - free shuttle good, not brilliant otherwise
stayed 1 night here, hotel only been open a few months, but already showing wear and tear - tiles cracked, vending machines broken . free shuttle service from airtrain very good, but hard to get to by public transportation if not paying $5 for airtrain ticket - nearest bus 5 - 10 minute walk (Q6 to jamaica centre). room small but clean enough, had shallowest bath tub in the world, and not enough channels on the TV. complimentary breakfast okay, otherwise no food available, though burger king nearby. taxi to green acres shopping mall $15-25 (depending on taxi firm) which has loads of restaurants and stores. basically okay and cheap but wouldn't really recommend it.
Booked via 3rd party source for approx. $70/night. Only stayed for 2 nights since I had a morning depature out of JFK and didn't find it convenient to stay on the island.
This place was not in the most convenient location, difficult to get to from the highway. Very limited parking, wound up parking in another hotel's lot, luckily was not towed. Also had specifically requested two double beds, got one bed instead. Was unable to switch rooms, as the hotel was booked full. (The hotel is actually very small) When I asked about getting a rollaway, they said they wouldnt have any available that night, but promised one the next day. Never got the rollaway, they suggested getting a bunch of pillows instead. Overall, the staff was quite rude and not helpful. Bathroom was okay, room was small and air con didn't cool down the room much. They did serve a limited continental breakfast, which was ok. I'm sure there are better deals out there than this hotel.
Wouldnt go back
Positves: 1) clean 2) breakfast included 3) free shuttle Negatives: 1) no double glazing (were near an airport people!) 2) the guest coffee machine was in the toilet 3) checkin took too long (about 10 minutes) 4) the shuttle is not bookable or scheduled, starts from 6am and thats about it, turn up and take your chances 5) Not within the airport grounds or nearer to them then the scores of other hotels in the area (its website said otherwise). Summary: Dont stay here your only going to be looking for a bed for the night so find cheaper as its a wasted premium.
The Worst Place Ever..Rude Horrible clerk.. Smelly UGH!!!
I booked a room through Expedia paying $135 for a better room with two beds...I waited forever for a rude desk person to assist me and then was directed to a dark, horrible, pee smelling room in the basement with one bed.. When I complained I was told too bad and had to contact Expedia to get help..STAY AWAY!!!!!
I stayed in this hotel for an early departure to JFK, and it worked out pretty well, especially if I consider that this hotel had the lowest price around JFK.
Nice hotel for a cheap price
I stayed there May 30, 2004. For a Sat night, I paid $94. It was very convenient if your flying from JFK airport. I think it was $12 for a taxi to JFK. The staff was nice. The room was clean. A nice hotel for that price.
Pass on this one
I stayed here recently and was quite disappointed with my stay. While the rates here are very reasonable, the hotel had several flaws: Off-street parking is limited, forcing many guest to have to park on the street; The hotel is located next to a sanitation truck depot and there is a stench in the air outside the hotel; The bathroom in my room had not been thoroughly cleaned after the previous guest checked out; One of the two phones in my room didn't work; and the air-conditioning unit in my room was poorly positioned directly under the window curtains, making it difficult to cool the room (given that all the cool air blew behind the curtain instead of into the room.)
I would not stay here again.
Convenient to the airport
The only reason why you would stay in this hotel is if you need to fly out of JFK early in the morning. Over all, the hotel is not at all impressive. When we arrived, we were given a smoking room despite specifically requesting a non-smoking room when we made the reservation. The room was disgusting. There were burn marks all over the furniture and the room stank so badly that we started gagging. The staff changed our room quickly when we asked them to, however, and the second room was okay but located in a basement so it was a little dank and dreary.
Despite the rooms, it is very convenient to JFK. The hotel operates a free shuttle to and from the airport.
Loved this hotel
if you are flying out of jfk and need a place to stay for a night then this is the place to stay at jfk. the hotel was new, clean, the staff was friendly and the best was it was quiet. the rooms were small but very clean. i recommend this hotel.
