Made the mistake of booking a flight out of JFK on the same Sunday as the New York Marathon. The city closed the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and we were coming from New Jersey. So it necessitated that we go a day early and we stayed at the Howard Johnson JFK. Upon arrival, check in was easy and then Louis helped to...

I will admit the lady at reception behind the glass is of concern. I didn't feel safe at that point. The place was clean. We stayed over night for our morning flight. It ended up being a decent stay. The concierge was extremely helpful.

Served our minimal needs, but driver was defensive and, overall, employees seem unfriendly and exhibit little pride in their jobs. We won't be staying here again.

Stayed here for two nights. The lobby is dated, and the clerks are behind a glass partition. Not very welcoming. They do their best to get you checked in, but not much more...I got into JFK at around 7 am, and the shuttle bus picked me up pretty promptly. Once I checked in, all I wanted was to sleep, but...

It could not very convenient if you have to go to this hotel by the train from Penn station and then by a cab for $10 from Jamaica. I stayed for a night in a quiet room and had a free ride with George, a friendly shuttle driver, to the airport.

Stayed here after an evening flight into JFK. The room was nicer than the rest of the motel and had a really comfy bed, however the lock on our room didn't work properly. It was clean and is a basic motel for airport stop overs.

Small accommodations but fits basic needs. Seals around air conditioner not so good so outside noise gets in. Hallway noise by elevator rather loud during peak. Spent nearly an hour trying to contact hotel for airport pick up. Airport drop off was late due to driver sleeping in bus.

This is my first stay here and won't be my last. It's an $18 cab ride from JFK. But now that I'm here, I see they have an airport shuttle hourly. You drive past a sketchy-looking piece of Rockaway Boulevard to get to this area with three inexpensive hotels and a Burger King. I arrived from JFK about 10 pm...
