Okay, won't return
Basically, this is an over-priced but okay hotel to in my experience is not worth it given the distance from JFK. If you want to leave out JFK, there are better options at similar or lower costs. The room I had was in surprisingly good shape but that still doesn't justify the rate. It was noisy, the building overall is in fair condition, the surroundings are... whatever. For a fairly expensive rate they had no coffee service and no hair dryer. The AC unit was marginally functional. My room was fine for a solo traveler but would have been tight for two. I won't be back.

Midwestern guy rating Far Rockaway hotel!
Room was clean but incredibly small. No amenities, although they did have coffee in the lobby. Front desk very friendly. I thought it was expensive at $160, but probably not familiar with local prices.

10/10 Exceptional

Good value stay
The hotel was clean and well maintained. The rooms are very small and the sound travels through the door. The staff was friendly and helpful. They required a $100 cash deposit though. There are about15 parking spots so if you dont get one you park on the street possibly blocks away. The neighborhood has greatly improved and appears safe. There are plenty of restaurants nearby.
