    The hotel was great! We arrived very late at night and didn't fly out until the next evening, another late flight. They had a nice breakfast and held our luggage until we needed to collect.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express At JFK Jamaica

    Don't bother if you expect to get any sleep!

    from

    Stayed at The Holiday Inn Express the night before our flight home after staying in New York thinking we would get a good nights sleep before early flight home. However, other guests were slamming doors and shouting in corridoors until well after 1am. We were only on !st Floor (below Reception) so Hotel Staff must have been well aware. Would have got more sleep on airport seats and saved a few bucks into the bargain!

    Overpromises and underdelivers

    from

    The free airport shuttle runs inconveniently only once every 60 minutes, and does multiple stops--quite unusual (and unacceptable) for an airport hotel. On top of this the bus has a large sign reading "GRATUITIES APPRECIATED", which I find inappropriate and tacky. The advertised Wi-Fi is not available in the room, so if you want internet access you have to hang out by the front desk to get internet access--highly inconvenient.

    Good place to stay for a night

    from

    This is probably the best "budget" hotel near JFK. Rooms were clean, staff helpful and the continental breakfast OK. You can get food delivered from local take-aways (the hotel will give you menus) but the quality isn't that good. There's a free shuttle from the airport but to get anywhere else you have to get a taxi ($12 to nearest metro station and $15 minimum the other way). This can put the price up so, if you want to see New York think about spending the extra on something in the city and save a lot of time. we were doing fly drive so needed somewhere close to the airport to park first night.

    An excellent JFK hotel

    from

    I wish to echo the positive comments of others reviewing this hotel for TripAdvisor. My family (wife and son, age 13) and I live a long distance from any airport and it is my habit to spend the night before a morning flight in a hotel near the airport. As such, we have stayed in numerous establishments in and around Newark and JFK airports. This hotel is the most pleasant and congenial of any airport hotel we have used in the New York area. The rooms are small but compare favorably to those in other airport hotels, about the same size the Newark Airport Marriott and the former JFK Hilton, at less than half the price. There is no restaurant other than the excellent complimentary breakfast, but the hotel recommends very good ethnic local delivery places. We called the Italian place and had excellent food delivered hot at a reasonable price in 45 minutes. There is an acceptable amount of noise audible in the hotel, but it is relatively quiet as it is after all located in Queens, which is not a quiet place. It did not disturb our sleep. The hotel shuttle operates hourly and absolutely on the dot, so be on time.

    We were connecting with the 9AM British Airways flight to London. We boarded the hotel shuttle bus at 7AM and were checked onto our flight by 7:30. An excellent hotel for a night before a flight.

    Nice, but ask for room on the back side

    from

    The room itself was quite nice, but I recommend that you request one that faces the back of the hotel. The side facing Conduit Ave gets quite a bit of road noise and light. The latter was an issue because my room did not have a dark curtain to pull shut. No restaurant, but they provided menus from several takeouts in the area.

    Fits the bill

    from

    This place fits the bill for a late night arrival or early departure from JFK. The rooms are a good size and very clean. It appears to be fairly new, maybe just a few years old. We had a room on the 5th floor, facing the highway, so we heard the traffic all night. If I needed to stay here again, I would ask for a room in the back of the hotel. There was a complimentary continental breakfast in the lobby consisting of breads, donuts, bagels, cereals, hard boiled eggs, coffee and juice. We ate there while we waited for the free shuttle that left every hour on the hour. It was very prompt with a 10 minute ride to the airport.

    Get me to the airport on time.

    from

    When I arrived, my room was not ready. My plan was to store my bag at the hotel and go somewhere to spend the afternoon.

    Well, the front desk refused to hold my bag for me saying they didn't have a place for it.

    I felt confined to the lobby as I had to stay with my luggage.

    After patiently waiting and waiting-----and asking NICELY a couple of more times, the front desk relented and agreed to store my bag in their office.

    This is the first hotel I've been to that had a problem with storing bags.

    Once I did get into my room it was more than adequate. It was nice and clean and close to the airport for my early a.m. flight out. Just what I needed.

    Surprisingly, I heard little or no airport noise.

    The next morning, the airport shuttle arrived on time and I was on my way.

    Clean but noisy

    from

    We stopped for 1 night in NYC last August. The hotel is very close to the airport and has a good shuttle service (departs every hour). The room was clean, new and big enough. However the room did not have a remote control for the TV and, when we asked to receptionist, we were given a non-working one twice. At the end we gave up and changed channels manually! Also, the hotel refused to store our bag for a couple of hours after check-out, saying that at the airport we could find a convenient baggage storage service ... this is true and it costs 20 $ per day (no hourly service).

    Excellent value, neat and tidy

    from

    This could be the best option at JFK, reading the negative reviews of the other, older, more expensive, hotels. The HI Express seems brand new, with good sized rooms and better quality furnishings than I'd expected. The free breakfast was better than most and there is a free shuttle to the airport. For the $99 I paid I have absolutely no complaints. Note - the shuttle only runs once an hour, so when you arrive at Kennedy its better to get a cab. And make sure the driver doesn't take you to the main Holiday Inn by mistake.

    Comfortable JFK layover

    from

    This was a great layover from JFK to Paris. The room was fresh, bed great. The breakfast was just right. The staff was courteous and efficient. For an evening meal, we called out for pizza and Italian food. Fun and casual. The shuttle was always timely.

    ... to find a small cake shop Lauren had been told about. Having filled up on very rich chocolate chip cookies we went in search of the Natural History Museum which you might remember from the movie Night at the Museum. It was nearly closing time so we made the decision to come back in a couple of days. Thankfully by now the rain had stopped so we were able to walk from 86th Street down to 42nd Street and Time Square. The start of the walk we were going past the swanky upmarket shops ...

    Anyway apart from all that we went to a huge Italian indoor market called Eatily full of the most amazing pasta, wine and other Italian foods. Grand Central Station is extraordinary and there is the hugest Apple Computer shop on the balconies in there. We ate at a small Bolivian cafe very near to our apartment.

    Appearances are definitely deceiving and again I found myself eye to eye with a gang. I decided that was enough for me and no sense putting myself in any danger, so I made my way back to the station and got the subway back to Times Square.


    I thought that I would do one last sweep of the big block 9th Ave, 49th Street, Broadway, & 42nd ...

    Thankfully we had a quick drive to our lot in Mendham, but due to some sort of miscommunication, we weren't given access to our lot until early afternoon. Our sponsor was able to get us parked temporarily onto another area of the park which was fortunate. Kyle, Johnny, John and I all walked downtown to get some food. There was a small family-owned deli that made us all egg and cheese sandwiches and after paying, we walked up the street to find a park that was ...
