Very clean and tidy place to stay
I never thought a neat little place like that exists in New York City. Our room was small but who cares it was really really CLEAN. Ignore the litter you see around the surrounding areas, that's NYC. This hotel is a gem. We'll definitely go back
Good Reviews and Recommendations and got Great Results
My stay in New York city was from Oct 26-29. I went alone and it was to be my first time visiting the Big Apple.
I carefully researched for a decent, quiet, clean and reasonbly priced hotel in Manhattan. Upon reading the reviews on the Red Roof Inn in Manhattan on this website, I made my reservation and upon my stay there I was extremely pleased with the accomodations. I am a light sleeper and requested a quiet room. Man, did I sleep like a log! Other than hearing a tiolet flush or a shower in the morning, it was quiet and allowed me to rest and relax after a long day of sightseeing and walking. There is complimentary breakfast on the 2nd floor.
The hotel is conveniently located nearby a subway stop (2 blocks), Times Square (10 blocks) and the Empire State Buidling (2 blocks). It is also in a Korean neighborhood with a variety of Korean businesses and restaurants. I felt safe walking in the area. I was out as late at 11:30 PM.
I plan to return to New York city in the near future. And I plan to consider the Red Roof Inn again. No complaints here about the hotel. It made my visit in New York city a wonderful one.
I hope this review helps folks out.
We will be back!
We stayed here in August 2003. Hotel is in a great location - small town Korea. A street filled with Korean shops and fantastic Korean restaurants a great cultural experience. Rooms feature new furnishings and are VERY clean. Easy walking distance to most major attractions.
Empire state just around the corner. Continental breakfast of bagels, donuts and cereal were perfect for a weekend away. Next we are in New York this is where we will be staying.
I have stayed here twice in the last year and was pleasantly surprised that a budget hotel could be so clean and decently-appointed. Every time I visit, I plan on trying a new hotel or part of town, but I always end up back at the great Red Roof because the price is better than some of the shared bathroom dumps! Maid service was excellent; my room is always spotless when I arrive. Some of the rooms are a little small (it's New York!), but others are quite spacious. The front desk staff can be moody, but I've never beat the location and cleanliness for the price. HIGHLY reccomended!
Affordable, CLEAN! and central !!!
We stayed at the Red Roof Inn on September 4th. The price ($89) was great and the room too ! I did book through the Red Roof's actual website, and altho the room I thought I was getting was not the one we did get, everything was better than I actually accepted. HELPFUL HINT: the parking ($22 per night) is on the corner of 3rd and 32nd. When you turn onto 32nd, you will see the PARK sign. That's where you should go.
You will have to get your parking receipt validated at the hotel desk in order to get the $22 rate - otherwise, it would be $37. The hotel room was tiny .. but very clean and the king size bed was comfy and we slept very well. Bathroom was very clean too. Continental breakfast is served from 7:00 a.m. till 10:00 a.m. (approx) and was filling enough to get us started on our day. Bagels, fruit .. etc .. We went to eat at 9:00 a.m. and there was tons of food, and they were always adding more food. All in all .. a great stay. We would stay there again .. but would prefer not to bring a car to Manhattan again !! Worth the visit to the Red Roof !
Perfect for our situation!
Stayed at the Red Roof Inn July 27-30/2003 It was perfect for our situation. We had 2 rooms with 2 adults and 2 older children 13-15, in each room. The rooms were adequate but on the small side. The place was quiet as we had a room facing the inside so street noise was non-existent. The bathroom was fine and had the ususal shampoo and soaps. Four of us managed fine. The TV had movies, and a good variety of channels. There was a breakfast room on the 2nd floor that was small but gave you a coffee, a doughnut, muffin, cereal limited fruit and toast. GO early! The spirits bar on the mezz. was small and had low ceilings. We never stayed for a drink. The location is great! You can see the side of the Empire State building from in front of this hotel.
It is 2 blocks away. Macy's is also a 5 minute walk.Times Square is a $4. approx. cab ride or 25 minute walk and Rockefeller Centre is about the same.The hotel is clean and friendly. You are in the Korean area and there are good restaurants right next to the hotel if you like that kind of fare.The parking for your car is a block away and is $22 a night special rate. Don't let them talk you into paying $32 for an oversized vehicle. We both drove minvans and it said on the sign they were classed as oversized and would cost $32. per night. After a little talking to the attendant and a $5. tip the cost was back to $22. Give $5 to save $40ea.... that worked out!All in all a nice hotel for the $$'s.Oh... If you like a Starbuck's in the morning instead of the hotel kind, it is just around the corner. Have fun in New York and remeber you are not in the room too much so save your money for the sights and pick up a bargain room.
We stayed at the Red Roof Inn, July 27-30, 2003. We used the trip advisor review to help pick the place. My wife and I with two 15 year old kids stayed in a two double bed room. It's not big but very comfortable and very clean. The continental breakfast of bagels, donut's, juice and coffee was a great way to get going early in the morning. It is located one block from the Empire State building. When you walk out the front door look up, it's framed by the two buildings across the street. Macy's is two blocks away and is a must see even if you don't like to shop. A cab to Times Square was $4.00. It's a great deal for $99.00 a night, I booked through the Red Roof website and confirmed with the hotel, parking the car was $22.00 a night with the ticket validated by the hotel. Parking was just down the block. The bellman was very friendly and helped unload the car on the narrow street and even brought the luggage to the carpark to make it easier to load up when we checked out. We would definately stay there again!!!!!!
Great for a first timer!
First time in new york city. I came with a group of students with my high school. If you will be out and about most of the time in NYC don't waist your money on fancy schmancy hotels! This one works great! Walk to the empire state building or anywhere for the matter if you stay at this hotel. Rooms were nice...3 of us girls stayed in one room and liked it! Clean hotel and the employees werer very nice. Recommend!
This place can always be counted on for a cheap rate. Right near everything, but still on a quiet side street. Short walk to subway. Rooms a bit small, but who the hell sits in their room while in NYC?? Highly recommended.
Red Roof - Great Value
A Good hotel for the cost. Central Location, one Block from Empire State Building. Rooms were clean and spacious, staff friendly. Complimentary breakfast was a Orange Juice, Unlimited Tea or Coffee, a bagel donut or Toast and a piece of Fruit, which was more than adequate. Overall above average hotel for the money they charge

I went for one last walk early this morning foolishly thinking that I might find some quiet streets in Paris to take a few more photographs and reflect.
The left bank at 5:30 a.m. reminds me of that old Jimmy Buffett lyric, ". . . there is a fine line between Saturday night and Sunday morning." Never more true than this morning in this City.
... spotted it and alerted one of the deli staff. The policewoman, meantime, strolled out of the deli armed and ready to bust someone for jay-walking! The 9/11 memorial left me feeling quiet and reflective. Watching people leaving roses on a loved one's name was very touching and left me a bit stuck for words - but to be honest, the memorial is somewhere where you don't need many words. Just sitting with your thoughts is enough. We trekked ...
We were up early today so we could catch the subway to meet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for our tour with Oasis tours. This group organizes tours led by local Witnesses through the museum with the Bible as its guide. There are two tours to choose from: The Woman & the Seed or the Integrity tour. The former covers the history of the Bible in light of the first four world powers - Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, and Persia. The latter covers Bible ...
This morning we walked two blocks to the Empire State Building. At the time of completion, in 1931, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world. It remained the tallest building in the United States until the late 1960s when the World Trade Centre's twin towers were built. Today it remains the second highest in New York, after the completion of 1WTC this year. There are 102 floors to the building, with observation decks at the 86th floor (320m above street level) ...
