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 hostel was, was proberley the worst part of NYC a lot of dodgy characters around. We found a Maccy D's (McDonalds) as the only point of wifi so had a good cheap tea there found out the location of Sean and Gemma's hotel, got them a bottle of champers and hoped in a taxi (as it was a treck away). Outside their hotel we did a good old selfie on the polaroid camera and wrote a little note on it "Don't forget our faces" hopefully too make them cry ha! The hotel was ...
... by the end of it. The night was spent on Broadway where we saw 'Motown' which was awesome, the music was fantastic and the whole show was really well done.
Overall NYC was everything you hear of and more. Six full days was nearly not enough and we had to do a couple of long days to fit in everything. It was an amazing six days although we left tired and over queues and security checks but it was all worth it for the awesome experience of this great ...
My heart skipped a beat Wednesday afternoon as there was a loud banging in the hallway and then on our door. Luckily Thomas was home for lunch or I would have really spacked out. I peered through the spy hole in our door to see our corridor filled with fireman. Now ladies whilst that might sound very exciting in reality it was terrifying and memories of the fire in the hotel we stayed in during our first 2 weeks in NY came flooding ...
... suffocating inside they got the water off, the rain slowed after about 30 min but the grounds were flooded, the grounds team drove out buggies and loads and loads of dry sand to get the pitch ready but after waiting till 10:30 pm we decided to head home as it was getting too late. We found out later that the game was called Yankees 2 Texas rangers 1 called due to rain. It was fun to watch the game, there was a lot of fun music and Mexican waves etc. We were really tired after a huge ...
Our last full day in New York *sniff sniff*. We started off by going on the Bronx tour, which was part of the hop on hop off service. Wow - what turn of events! We were only on the bus for about 3 minutes when a lady on our bus got shot in the neck with a BB gun!! At first we didn't know what had happened, but our bus had seemed to stop for quite a while. We were sitting in the back row of the bus, and turned and had a look, and there were police cars and ambulances half way ...
