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!
Travel Inn, superb value
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.
Best Bargain In Manhattan
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.
Travel Inn erased those worries with free indoor parking and no in and out charges, which is the only Manhattan hotel, maybe the only hotel in NY, to have free parking. Is the hotel a 5 star property? It all depends of your definition of 5 star. It gives you a clean decent size room, a combo indoor-outdoor pool by way of a canopy over half the pool, fitness room, and great location. If your on a strict budget and want to stay out of restaurants neighborhood grocery stores are steps away. Cruiseline ships and tours are 2 blks away on the river. The cruise was very informative and relaxing. Just got back 6/27 2003 stayed 4 nights, I can't wait to go back.
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.
An amazing bargain, and a swimming popl, too!
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.
We stayed in a small, spotlessly clean room with a comfortable double bed. Parking in an attached garage was free, which saves you $20-$30 a day in NYC. We paid $115 a night.
The clientele tends to be tourists and with the pool there, they attract families with kids. The facilities are what you'd expect in a tourist-class hotel, but they (and this includes the pool) seem very clean and well-maintained.
I absolutely recommend this place. I don't think you can find more hotel for less money.
Value for money accommodation
good value for money, well situated for the tourist
area,very clean,staff was very helpfull telling us where to visit and where
to avoid. I would definatly go again,and recomend it to others.

Our first full day in New York! Because of the jet lag, we were up early (think 4 am - urgh). It was a good job though as we had managed to procure crown access tickets for the Statue of Liberty and needed to get the first boat out to Liberty Island at 8 am to avoid the crowds. This involved a ride in a New York taxi downtown (which was a little hairy - Ethan whispered to me "wow- this is like being in a real life video game. Could ...
... all those who passed in the tragedy. Very moving place and the water had a calming effect, the new World Trade Centre loomed overhead and it was hard to imagine two buildings of that size had previously existed where now there was only giant holes in the ground. A brief stop at the bull of Wall Street where Lisa and I got to rub it’s giant, shiny golden balls for luck before onto the Empire State building for the final sightseeing stop, a stunning art deco style building from ...
... dinner, I had the ravioli, while my mom selected the beef.
When the food arrived, I was excited, as it looked great! It came with a mini salad with balsamic vinaigrette and a rice pilaf thing (idk). The salad was decent, and the rice was pretty good. However, the ravioli was absolutely delicious. It was a vegetarian ravioli with mushrooms inside, and the sauce was pretty tasty. I ended up sopping up the leftover sauce with the bread they gave out! My mom gave me ...
... black soot on it and it is one of the buildings that also survived the disater. As we head out of 9/11 we pass a barbers Tony goes in for a wee trim. We go down stairs and there there are 3 men available to assist. While Tony gets a cut n blow dry I get the 'story' in the broad New Yorker accent. The owner of the shop was working in the basement barbers the day the first plane hit, it shook the shop but reality never hit until the second plane hit. He ran to the street and headed ...
... 5th AVENUE and TIMES SQUARE. It has to be done but in my humble opinion is overated. Sure the buildings are awesome but the shops are a mix of "blingtastic" self adorning over priced nonsense or the usual tourist tatt. However, it is worth a look .....as you are accosted by ticket touts for Broadway shows or semi clad Cowboys/girls and all sorts of hustlers trying to push their wares. We decide to bale out at 1600hrs for an early supper. Being seasoned locals ...
