Tiny room, but good. Only stayed for one night and it was quite cheap (thanks Aunt Helen). Very close to Central Park and to subway entrances.

Tiny Rooms but Great Locations
Stayed here in January with 2 friends. I came prepared to be disappointed after reading these reviews but was pleasantly suprised.
True, the elevator is tiny and the rooms are tinier but the hotel staff is more than accomodating. They were extremely friendly and helped us find our way around the city. 3 people in a room with 1 twin and 1 double/queen and it was cute and cozy. Room was clean and staff was available at all times for requests (extra towels, room service, etc).
Definitley worth the money. I would stay again if it were closer to the heart of the city but overall, a fun trip!
Mixed feelings regarding this hotel
This hotel can be very good at times and very bad. The rooms with queen size beds are nice, especially the ones on the upper floors and facing the front of the building. The rooms with the double beds are horrible. They are a little bigger than a walk-in closet. There is no room to walk around, no desk and no chairs. I would estimate the room size is 10x8. The elevator is slow and there is a long wait when you call for it. I would disagree with one of the former posters who compared the street that the hotel is located on as I believe he said as an "alley. Quite the opposite it's located on a very charming Upper West Side block near all types of great restaurants and theaters.I must say this again the rooms with the double beds are small and they should be ashamed of themselves to have a guest stay in them. Even if you were to combine two of these rooms it would still be considered small.All of the above being said, I enjoy staying at this hotel when I can be assured of a room with a queen size bed facing the front.
Website pictures very misleading, our room was tiny, easily the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in with little room to move about. No space to store our luggage and it remained on the floor of the room reducing the space even more. Storing foldaway beds in the corridor outside our room was also a fire hazard. Apart from great location near to Central Park I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It spoiled what was otherwise a great visit to New York City.
Stank hotel-left @ 2am
One tiny old elevator for the whole hotel! Rooms were disgusting with blood and urine on the bedspread, you literally cannot walk in these rooms, the smell was horrific, staff rude walking around barefoot (not professional) our room was stifiling hot the heat wouldnt cute off, we had the windows open without any screens and the shower stall was worse than any gym I've ever been in, wondering why I stayed her? Someone else made the reservations, we ended up leaving @ 2 AM to drive another 5 hours to get home. NYC shortest trip ever!
"Tiny rooms, hotel just OK, don't believe the web site pics!
Stayed at this hotel in October 2003. The rooms were TINY - mine measured about 9' x 8' and included a double bed, night stand, safe, small dresser with TV on top, chair and luggage stand. (Read: very little space to walk around.) Not sure why a remote was provided for the TV - I could just reach over to turn it off!! There is NO WAY this room could accommodate more than 1 person - I was tripping over my own things as it was. Bathroom was also tiny but OK for 1 person. Sheets and bathroom were clean, but carpet was questionable. Couldn't hook up my laptop computer because I had to move the dresser/TV, then the chair, then the nightstand (in that order!) to get at the outlet and phone jack; wasn't worth the trouble. Bed was saggy and had seen better days. Continental breakfast was scant. Neighborhood was quiet and safe though, situated about 1/2 mile north of Midtown. Price was OK, would stay again if I couldn't find a better deal. OK for 1 traveler, but two or more occupants should stay away!
Not so cheap or cheerful
Very misled by their web site. Room was very tiny- with two of us sharing, one had to sit on the bed while the other tried to pass! The shower room was so small that you had to leave the door open when you were getting dried otherwise you were always hitting into it. One window in room but looked straight into another building. Small buffet style breakfast room downstairs. Not a lot to choose from. When checking out they tried to charge us a more expensive rate than the one we had booked. Reluctantly changed it when they saw the printout from our booking. Close to Central Park and Columbus Ave but most tourist attractions are a good walk away. Very quiet area, seemed safe but won't be staying again.
Just plain nasty
I booked through Hotels at their recommedation for my daughter 10th birthday present.The rooms are totally misrepresented on thier site. The rooms I saw were no bigger than a oversize closet and the carpet was stained and stickey. The bathrooms so small that you felt like you were in a RV.Overall, I checked in and checked right out. My recommendation would be the Holiday Inn on 57th & 9th street. 4 blocks from Times Square/Threate district and 2 blocks from Central park.Booking through Hotels cost me big. My nights at the "roach motel" were non-refundable. The kicker is that the Comfort Inn was $40 more than the Holiday Inn. Jokes on me.Actually, if your up that way, stop in and check it out for yourself, you'll be glad you didn't do it.
Great Location-Terrific price for NYC
I Stayed at the Comfort Inn Central Park West June 9-11, 2003. While the room was quite tiny (typical for NYC), the stay was very enjoyable. The LOCATION is great- just a few yards from the subway, which can get you anywhere within a few minutes. Additionally, the area around the Hotel is filled with many nice restaurants (on Columbus Ave. and Broadway), and lots of shopping outlets. Since the Hotel is in a residental area, it is a real New York experience to stay there. Thus, it is not "touristy" and you can actually leave your window open and sleep without street noise. It is just a few yards from Central Park, and this gives you a great oppertunity for a jog or stroll. An extra perk is the free continental breakfast, which is not outstanding, but quite filling and had great tasting coffee-which is freshly ground for each cup you get. For what you get for your money (book through their website or call directly (212-721-4770), this Hotel cannot be beat. I definitly recommend it to anyone, who does not want to waste their money on overpriced rooms.
For the money and great West Side location it can't be beat. My travelling companion had a room on one of the upper floors and had a much better experience since her view was unobstructed by the surrounding buildings. Mine was a tiny room will a very thin door that 1)didn't feel that secure and 2) let all the noise from the hallway in. But, it was very clean. Only other problem was that it was hard to hail a cab--have the desk call a car for you if you have an appointment. Nice breakfast room and small fitness center. They had one of those "pay computers" and it was impossible for me to connect--don't expect to use it. Believe it or not, I am planning a return visit now that I have more realistic expectations.
Warning Stay Away
Central Park West was not the most pleasant experience in the entire world. First, the parking is horrid in New York! The street that the Comfort Inn is on looks more like an alley! Do not let the pretty pictures on their web-site sway you! Second, we reserved our room at a guaranteed rate and when we arrived the staff tried uping the rate and saying that the rate that we had on our form was in-correct evenb though we showed it to them. Thirdly, the rooms are the size of closets! I swear to you, our first room was enough room for 1 bed and a closet that was turned into a bathroom. If my husband or I wanted to go to thr restroom then the other person had to sit on the bed to move out of the way. Fourth is that they say that they are close to everything, wrong again. By the end of my stay I was quite fond of subways. Here's my advice, spend the extra 50 per night and stay in the heart of it all and away from the Comfort Inn!!!!

Laura, It was a pleasure to get to know you this week in Queens. You were a real asset to our team as we worked at the Salvation Army and in the food truck.

As our time in Boston came to an end, another long coach journey beckoned to whistle us on our way to the city that never sleeps! Luckily this was to be a mere five hour journey, although as is becoming a common theme on these journeys the driver waited until Josh had popped to the toilet to slam on the breaks. As we pulled into the sweltering city we were immediately struck by the impressive skyline. Our first challenge was to decipher the infamous New York subway, but ...
