    Mediocre standard, but very close to subway

    There were good things about this hotel as well as some negative ones. When I checked in, I was not made to feel welcome, the woman didn't engage with me in any way and was instead looking at her monitor in silence. She only looked up briefly to give basic information about breakfast and wifi. The rude reception I received stayed with me and I haven't gotten over it. Other members of staff were friendly, however the first impression I got at reception left a nasty atmosphere for me that was hard to shake off. Please note, there is no refrigerator in the room, neither was any tea/coffee making facilities either, however it was explained to me by another member of staff that you can use the breakfast room 24 hours for making tea and coffee. By the way the photo shown here is out of date, because there are now buildings on either side, In fact there is a lot of construction work going on in the area and it was quite noisy. On the plus side, the sheets were clean and there was air condition in each room. The location was very convenient when using the subway. it was easy to get to LGA airport.

    Great location

    Great location for travelling into Manhattan, as the hotel is 2 minutes from the subway station and the 7 line goes straight into Manhattan. Unfortunately, being so close to a subway line meant it was very noisy in the room, as you could hear every train come and go, all through the night. Other guests in the hotel were also quite noisy and there were builders working on the outside of the building before 8am. Air conditioning unit struggled to keep the room cool. Room was clean and tidy and staff were friendly. The breakfast area is only four tables for the entire hotel, so I had to take food back to my room as there were never any spare tables. Breakfast choice was quite limited.

    The lift is very slow, and does not sense movement when door closing so will close door on you. The stairs are sign posted well enough. The curtains in room don’t shut so need chair to keep them shut over night. The window rattle, let in noise so need updating. Don’t forget ear plugs. Breakfast is nice if you can get it as most of time a lot of people trying to get it and can’t sit all the time as only five tables. They happily kept my meds in fridge for me. They let us keep luggage in lobby after check out as had night flight which was nice. Made the bed every day and gave new towels!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very good value. Metro station only 1 minute walk away and then it took about 10 minutes to get to Times Square. Rooms were clean. Staff were friendly. Fairly limited breakfast but what they did have was very nice. A lot cheaper than most properties in Manhattan so overall a fantastic option. Would recommend!

    Fabulous

    Great 9 nights here. Asked for a quiet room and got given top floor. Never heard a thing at all in room. Bed really comfortable,breakfast brilliant and we always managed to get a seat in the breakfast room. Coffee and cold water available all the time in breakfast area. Staff brilliant. Really friendly. 2 mins walk to tube station that gets you into central New York in minutes. Absolutely love the place. If we ever return we will stay here again.

    Location 5 mins from subway with 6 connections.

    Late night food available within walking distance. Only 15 mins away from downtown via subway. Friendly staff. Room floor cleaning could improve.

    Budget Accommodation in NYC

    Red Lion Inn and Suites is a decent option for those on a budget staying in NYC. It is suitably located next to a Subway stop getting you into Midtown Manhattan in around 15-20 mins. The room facilities were good, and the bed was comfortable. The room wasn’t soundproofed so traffic and Subway noise can be heard throughout the night. The floor in our room also wasn’t especially clean, although other parts were pretty well maintained. The breakfast has been commented on before in other reviews, and we echo many of the previous views. Good selection and various options, but it was a real squeeze and there was little sense of order in terms of how people got their food. WiFi excellent throughout. Overall, apart from a few issues, we feel Red Lion Inn and Suites is a good option for those staying in NYC looking to avoid the expensive Manhattan options.
