Keshia, Jul 2019

Pros. The staff there was friendly.

Cons. This is NOT a 3 star hotel. It is very dingy and dirty looking the rooms are way too small and dated. All around it looked like a nightmare. I didn’t want to touch anything. We checked out as soon as we checked in and so did 3 other couples in the short time I was there.

Pros. Tbh, before I came here, I’ve been reading reviews on the hotel and many of them were quiet negative. What I experienced on the first day of my arrival, was totally different from the review I’ve read. The staffs were nice and friendly and very helpful. I got ,room708, a single bed with bathroom for one. The room was tiny, but it was in a perfect size, since it was only me staying there and it was clean. The location is absolutely perfect and safe, 2 blocks from timesquare and many attractions, they are all within a walking distance. Totally recommended this hotel for anyone. :)

Cons. Location, staffs, room

Pros. The location was great. The rates were good for that area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The size of the room was actually decent. WiFi worked well. No problem with hot water or water pressure. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable.

Cons. The hotel does not look like it's pictures online.... the hotel is very old and in major need of many repairs. The front door is a double door-- one is completely missing a handle, the other handle is loose. That is your first impression. The lobby ceiling is patched and unpainted. The elevator doors are in need of painting. The carpet on the stairs is frayed. The wallpaper on the walls of the staircase are marked up and dingy. The hallway floors are uneven and dip in spots-- I almost tripped twice. The first room we had had a "vintage" thermostat on the wall that was inoperable. The remote for the AC unit on the wall also did not work. The light shades on the lights over the bed were torn and frayed. The shower did not work-- took my first bath in 40 years. The clock by the bed is about 40 years old and was showing the wrong time-- (I know that is small, but as a matter of principle, guests should not be having to to reset the clocks to the correct time) Electrical outlets looked scary and 'moved' when you went to plug anything in.... After the first night, we must have tripped a fuse in the room, as the TV, clock, and AC unit, would no longer turn on. They quickly moved us to another room. This room faced the street, and while both windows were closed, and each set of windows also had shut glass doors over them, and we were 4 stories up, you could still hear everything happening down on the street. It was so loud all night, that we checked a couple times to be sure the windows were actually closed! There was a PC in the room, but with no connection to the internet. Also-- yet another clock issue-- a clock that was again about 40 years old, was running about 2 hours behind, and the time set button was broken-- so whenever we looked at it, we had to remember to add 2 hours.... The PC's in the lobby business center are running Windows XP.... This has the potential for being an AWESOME hotel-- but in it's current state, it's "quirkiness" isn't cool or interesting.... it's just OLD and not worth it!

Pros. There's no hotel anywhere which has a staff who are more friendly, helpful and courteous. This old lady - ( the hotel, not me - well, I'm old, too) - is well preserved, well cared for, and in a perfect neighborhood for experiencing the "Broadway experience." I'll definitely be back again.

Cons. A little note with directions as to how to "work" the sink and shower would have been helpful.....but staff helped with that.

Pros. Location good all was good except a huge roach in my room and no batteries in remote but I was never there! Its NYC!

Pros. The bathroom was spotless and bed definitely had fresh sheets. Maid service was very good. I liked that the hotel had a small room for solo travelers. I did not feel as if I had to pay for more room than I had. The location could not be better. The room was actually very quiet and dark, which made for good sleeping. It would have been nice to have a view of street, but that would have added light and noise.

Cons. This hotel has never been updated - with notable exception of bathroom, which had new fixtures. I don't think the wallpaper or paint have been redone in 50 years. Of course, that's probably what made it affordable.

Pros. Great location close to many things to do in NYC.

Cons. The toilet flushed really hard, the sink was broken and leaky every time we tried to use it, the shower wasn't very clean, and the tile around the mirror was broken.

Pros. We came to NYC to see a few shows on Broadway, and the location was amazing, just steps from the theaters. Rooms were clean. Staff was very efficient and friendly. The room was very small and not at all fancy, but we were just looking for an affordable place to stay near Broadway, and this fit the bill.

Cons. Room was very small, barely room for a double bed. It had a unit air conditioner (i.e., no central air) that could only just barely keep up with the 85-plus degree heat. Found one spider in the morning.

Pros. Best location hands down! Just a hassle telling the maids to come back later

Anonymous, Aug 2015

Pros. We liked that the place was central (just off Times Square) and that it was no frills, as advertised. We needed a place to sleep and this was it. No extras or a lot of space. Air conditioner (necessary!) was working just fine. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place, but if you are looking for a good value for the location, stay at the Mayfair.

Cons. The elevator did break down, but we were on the second floor and it was not important to our stay.
