Travel Inn Hotel New York
Travel Blogs from New York City
Up pretty early again this morning and off to Central Park. We stopped off and hired some bikes and started our trek through the park. All bikes travel anti-clockwise around the park and the circuit is about 6 kms. We stopped off at the Boathouse, the lake, and some baseball diamonds. Daniel and Luke had a throw of baseball before we made our way …
We were up quite early considering the late night we had and we managed to leave the hotel by 7:45am. We walked up W42 St to 8th Ave which has a number of touristy spots and had a bit of a look around. We walked up 8th Ave to Broadway to Times Square which was larger than life. We were meant to pick up our prepurchased tourist passes from Plant …

Ankommet til New York efter en rimelig behagelig tur over Atlanten. Vi ankom til hotellet kl. 16 lt.

Historical Traveler Reviews Travel Inn Hotel New York New York City
We paid $99.90/nite and it was a great deal. The highlights of this hotel are: FREE indoor parking, across the street from NYPD, friendly/helpful staff, clean and within walking distance to several attractions (e.g. Times Square, Theatre District, Wax Museum, Today Show, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall). If you enjoy chinese food try Olly, Olly, Ollys in Time Square and if you enjoy popcorn stop by Popcorn Indiana on Broadway. Both are awesome, especially the kettle corn!!! Metro cards are worth purchasing; they can be used on both the subways and buses. We used them to get back and forth from Ground Zero, Battery Park and Central Park (too far from the hotel to walk). Be sure to bring along a comfortable pair of walking shoes on your trip. We plan to stay at the Travel Inn on our next trip to NYC. Hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did!
A super little hotel, easy to get to and with free parking, although the spaces were a little tight. The pool was also a bonus - opening times 11am- 6.50 but since we used it to cool off before going out for the evening this worked for us. The first room we were offered had a good view of the Empire State Building, however it also had a slight leak in the roof but this was no problem we were given another room straight away. Was impressed that although there were 3 of us, and usually that means a rollaway we had 2 double beds. Bathroom was tiny with not a lot of shelf space for toiletries but adequate and clean. A 10 minute walk along W42nd ST to Times Square but since the hotel is to the west of Times Square it's off the beaten track. Will definately use this hotel again and would recommend it - for 3 of us we paid $119 per night (remember no parking charges on top) at the end of June 2003
The rooms are clean and walking distance Times Square and a lot of local attractions. The staff are friendly and helpful and when I left my sunglasses behind, they offered to post them to me, only costing me $3 for the postage. The staff are honest, which, in this day and age is very refreshing to come across and the front desk staff were always friendly and willing to offer assistance. We would definately stay there if we make it to New York City again.
Hard to beat: Swimming Pool and Free Parking
We stayed at the Travel Inn four nights in early July 2003. For a family of four, the rates were reasonable (under $150). We had a room with two double beds, TV with remote, alarm clock, hair dryer, big closet. Furniture and bathroom is clean and updated. PERKS: Free parking and in and out privileges. Good-size swimming pool. Small restaurant/deli next door. Grocery store down the street. Close, but far enough away from the crowds of TIMES SQUARE. Would recommend to anyone wanting average to above average amenities.
When visiting a city like NY you want to be right in the middle of everything and the Travel Inn puts you right there. What better place than 2 blks from Times Square to the East and 2 blks from the River to the West. Even tho I didn't anticipate a lot of driving around Manhattan parking charges and in and out priviledges were a concern.
The rooms are VERY clean and the staff was friendly and very helpful.
The parking garage is free for guests and that is a great perk.
I'm going back
We stayed at the Travel Inn for 3 days in February. The hotel is just fine. No it's not flashy but it has a pleasant room with a comfortable bed and a spotlessly clean bathroom. Housekeeping is excellent. The parking is FREE and has free in/out privileges. I like to drive so this was very important. Travel Inn is right in Manhattan and we walked everywhere we wanted to go on this trip. It's going to be my base hotel whenever I go to NYC from now on.
We love this place
My friend and I love this place--we've stayed three times and look forward to it again. Nice rooms and yes, it has a swimming pool, but one of the best assets is free parking for those driving into the city. The parking area can get cramped and we once had to ask for help to get the car out, but that's really small potatoes considering everything else. The location is cool--a few blocks west of Times Square and there are tons of restaurants and delis around. Easiest access, by the way, is from the West Side Highway--get off at 42nd St and it's only about two blocks up.
Travel Inn in New York City is an amazing bargain. It's located at 10th Avenue and 42nd Street, a safe, decent neighborhood a few blocks from Times Square. The place is set up unlike any I have ever seen in New York. Once you check in, you go to the third cloor, where your rooms are in one of several wings which surround an outdoor swimming pool.
