not what I expected

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Jul 2014
Location was moderate. Lack of maintaince wall paper peeling in numerous locations. Hotel floor smelled of Marijuana all 3 days. So that was not as smoke free as indicated especially since I had my small kids with me tisk tisk. The constant checking in to update my room key was a nucence. Cleaning staff was nice so was the front desk .that I must say. Everyones opinions are there own . Price was really too much for what I got.

Reviewed 9 July 2014

In April of 2014, we traveled to New York because my daughter had a medical emergency. We found ourselves in quite a stupor since it was Spring Break week and Easter week! So, we found ourselves at the Howard Johnsons at Yankee Stadium. We are both elderly and pretty sheltered, so staying in this hotel was pretty devastating. The area that it was in, the lobby and front desk area (that was glassed in) was scary (to say the least). I think that the front desk staff sensed this since Isaia and Steve took us under their wings and helped us in every way possible. They were AMAZING from helping us with all of our luggage (and we has tons since we were moving my daughter out of New York and back to the west coast), to getting us to and from the hospital daily. The maintenance person, Boliva was also AMAZING in helping us steer us through our adventure.
Thank you, to all three of these wonderful staff for helping us through this ordeal!!

If you're staying in the Bronx....this is the great place. Great value, quite, clean, safe, free breakfast and awesome staff...very helpful. Also, free parking in parking garage with surveillance cameras and very easy to get a cab. Close to police station. Would recommend staying here and would definitely stay here again.

Our first trip to New York City and on the first day we wanted to see a Yankee game and decided to find a hotel near the stadium. We were pleased with the location as the hotel was near the stadium and the subway. Our room was very clean and the King size bed was extremely comfortable.We met the owners who were very friendly and accommodating. The staff was also very nice and helpful. We were also happy that the parking was inside and secured. We would highly recommend staying here.
