Days Inn Hotel New York City - Broadway

Today I travelled to the Statue of Liberty. There is something about the lady that I like, she is the symbol of America for me and I know she is for many others but she fascinates me and I like her :) I won't get into too much details about the statue as I know you all know about her but instead I'll let you know I got my ticket to the crown of her …
Today is a struggle in the morning to get up after a very late arrival to the hotel. I got up and prepared myself for a busy day. Thanks to the front desk for their help in contacting and confirming my attendance to the two Viator tours I had booked for today, I was able to rest assure that they knew I was coming and all I needed to do was figure …

Well the first full day is done and I'm about to pack it in for the night. Just chilling out with some music and fresh fruit.
Had a general explore of the area around my hotel, apparently it's mostly residential. It is but as I was getting out of my taxi most of the local businesses were still open and that was 10:30pm. Traffic is going …
OMG - I can't believe it! I slept through the alarm this morning. I woke up and looked at my clock - it was 8:30. I bolted out of bed because there's not a minute to waste here.
After breakfast we took the subway to Lower Manhattan - the Bowling Green stop. Today we are doing Lower Manhattan and the Village. It's going to be a hot day.<...

Which despite the fact that the cost is pretty high for a hotel rated two stars it's actually what you'd expect in Manhattan where the YMCA hostel costs around $1000 for a week. It's basic with not much room, mostly a largish bedroom with ensuite. The place is older and a little run down, slightly peeling wall paper and scuffed paint but it's clean and relatively close to things. The 96th street subway stop is right next to the hotel. It's a pretty good deal and for those who complain about the lack of space, you aren't spending enough time out sightseeing and enjoying the food.

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Hotel New York City - Broadway
Not so nice.
This place seemed to have excellent reviews. Although the sheets appeared to be clean, the beds were barely made and there were blood splatters on the wall near the bed. The only nice part was that our shower had excellent water pressure. We changed hotels our second night in NYC.
Great F*kin holiday!
the lobby and lifts not fantabulous but rooms with en suit bathroom exceptionally clean and comfartable with kingsize bed, and great air conditioning, in both winter and summer. room fully equipt from hair dryers to fridges. and cable TV.. the rooms also had USB port for business trips. i wud definatly go again and im currently saving now!
For a recent short trip to one of very favorite cities, my friend and I chose the Quality Hotel on Broadway, because we'd stayed there for 5 nights last year and had enjoyed the ease with which we'd reserved online (with option to cancel), the spacious room and adequate bathroom, the decent degree of cleanliness, the relative quietness, and, most of all, the convenient location (just a few feet from the 96 St. subway station) in a neighborhood we like. Unfortunately, the minusses outweighed the plusses during our recent two-night stay.Some of the same plusses were still there: the room was quiet, except for the slamming doors that so many hotels seem to have (and the clueless guests who let them slam), the bathroom looked as if it had been renovated recently (even though the bathtub/shower fixtures were opposite the showerhead!), and the water pressure and temperature were good.But... our two-twin-bed room was smaller than the one-queen-bed room we had last year and was in worse shape, too. Although the decor was decent, there was only one chair, and it had stains on the seat. The bedspreads looked like they hadn't been laundered in quite some time. The carpet was frayed at the edges, and the "kitchenette" consisted of some empty cabinets, a sink, and a space where a refrigerator had been. There were only five clothes hangers in the closet and only one with clips. The bottom sheet on one of the beds didn't quite fit, and I found myself trying to sleep in the fetal position to avoid touching the bare mattress underneath. Upon returning to our room for the second night, we found our beds made, but the sheets hadn't been changed. We asked the front desk for fresh sheets, which we offered to put on the beds ourselves. The sheets were delivered in a timely manner, but there was no apology or explanation. There was no alarm clock in the room, although we used the "wake-up call" service. Our toilet, although a newer model, ran intermittently through the night. We were always short a towel (washcloth one day, bathmat the next). A stairway we used to get to the lobby had two large, dead cockroaches lying belly up.And, finally, the hotel has started to tack on a $1.08/day "safe charge" to cover the new safes it has installed into each room. I wasn't informed of this new "charge" when I checked in, and it was only because I questioned my bill that I was given the explanation that even if you don't use the safe, every guest is assessed this fee.You can't beat the price (we paid $107.95 and $80.95 per night not including taxes and fees this year and even less last year) and the location, but if you choose to stay here, keep in mind that this is a property that Choice Hotels does not put a lot of care or effort into.
We just went to NYC, April 2003 and our stay was wonderful. Although the room was small, it was immaculate and compfortable. The location is excellent, close to everything you want. The staff was friendly and courteous. The free continental breakfast was a real plus, I was impressed. The price for this New York hotel was fantastic. I will definately be going back.
On our very first visit to New York, we arrived in the dead of winter (snow and temperatures in the teens). After 25 minutes at check-in, we ventured to our room. After getting off the elevator, we were extremely surprised by the small hallways that led to the room. The walls were very thin. Once in the bitter cold room, my husband tried to figure out what the problem was with the heat. Being from Texas, we were not use to seeing radiators in hotel rooms. The front desk came to assist and check out the radiator problem and provided us with a portable heater. Draped in our coats, gloves and other winter attire, we waited for the room to be heated. Eventually everything was working but after a long plane trip from Texas, we just weren't up to entering a room which wasn't heated. I found this hotel on the internet and found the site misleading; specifically the part advertising free local phone calls. It turned out local calls were $1 each. We approached the front desk and they were not able to provide a solution or reason for the false advertising. The rooms were very small, nothing at all like the size of the rooms shown on the internet.The best and most memorable thing about this hotel for us was the fabulous like eatery down the street, "Key West Diner". Would eat there again.
Wonderful Hotel at a Budget Price!
My mother and I stayed here in 2000 and we were extremely surprised at what we found when we got up to our room. We were greeted by an enourmous window with an excellent view of shops and streets. Our room was the perfect size (compared to the tiny, grimy room that we stayed in the previous year at the Riverside Tower Hotel) for the both of us. On the left of the building there was a wonderful little pizzeria and a laundromat. It was a beautiful experience and we would love to stay there on trips in the future.
Indeed a quality hotel, great bargain
very good hotel , friendly personel, nice beds, big roomwe stayed over Xmas holidays , and got a $70 rate for a room that would in NY cost 140, it was a great bargain
Very very satisfied
Have stayed here three times and every visit has been just fine. The rooms may not be huge, but they are very comfortable with nice bathrooms. The location is great--subway is about two blocks away and there are a lot of restuarants nearby. They also have some great deals on occasion--stayed once for about $80 a night.
A comfortable stay in Manhattan..
The hotel was basic,no restaurant facilities,but spotlessly clean. If I had one criticism, it would be its location in relation to Manhattan Island, I would have preferred to have been nearer to "Midtown".Having said that it is within 40 yards of a station, with trains running every few minutes, "Uptown or Downtown".Not expensive by N.Y. standards.
Good base for NYC sights
If, like my wife and I, you want a hotel that is comfortable and convenient then this hotel is great. If you plan to spend a lot of time in your room then this may not be the place for you. The rooms are compact but comfortable, clean and air conditioned. There is a subway station right across the road and there are plenty of places to grab a snack and shop in the immediate vicinity.
