Reviewed 11 November 2011

well, what can i say, our family which was 2 adults and an 8yr old stayed at the best western w38 & 10th for 10 days in oct 2011.. this hotel was clean at all times, the room had 2 double beds, bathroom,television and coffee making facilities..
the room was ample size and very comfortable..
the hotel offered free continental breakfastwhich was aplenty from fruit to danish..free internet, morning papers and an ice machine..
nothing was too much for the staff..we would go back again and stay anytime..
one draw back was the train that ran under our window tooted from 7.15am on the hour..it would only bother someone who wanted a lay in...but who would want to miss a bit of this great city..

My mom had booked this hotel before we had talked about our options...and I was concerned when I saw the pictures and reviews, considering I am somewhat picky. However, I was very impressed with this hotel. It is definitely no-frills and small, but clean and comfortable. Any issues we had were addressed immediately.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is free, and the bagels and coffee were good. Also fresh fruit was available to grab and go for the day.
As long as you don't mind walking, the location is great...we walked from the hotel to our Broadway shows, Times Square, the Subway, etc. Everything you need is within a few blocks. And you are so close to the Harbour Tours! There's a Duane Reade a couple of blocks away which is great for drinks and snacks for your room. Also there is an Italian Restaurant (Il Punto) within a couple blocks that if you mention you are staying at this hotel, you get a 10% discount (...get the Pera salad mmmmm!)
We were 2 women travelling alone, and we felt safe walking around the area, even when we came back at midnight.
I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel - I thought it was great!

Just a 1 Night stay. Comfortable nights rest. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Not a lot of Room for hanging out just enough space to put down your bags and go see the town.

If you have a conference at the Javits Center then this is the hotel for you. This hotel is a great middle of the road place to stay. The staff is very courteous, the rooms are clean and decent size by NYC standards and the free breakfast is a great buffet with a wide variety of choices.

On the down side, you will have to walk about 13 minutes to get to a subway (8th Ave and 33rd St is probably the closest) and restaurants can be a bit of a hike. The neighborhood is not houses and shops, it's garages, bus parking areas, etc..but it's not dangerous and if you're there for a conference at the Javits, you can't beat it.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Our group of 7 ladies spent 7 nights in Sept 2011, we booked 2 rooms - a double room for 4 ladies and a Single Queen room + a cot for 3 ladies. Rooms were clean but very small and they have very comfortable pillow top matresses. We were very happy with what we got for the price we paid for our stay.
The staff were GREAT!!! Mike was awesome with his advice on sights and restaurants and helping us book shuttles etc..
The breakfast was decent. Eggs, bread and jams, cereal, bagels, donuts, juice. Would have been nice to have a waffle maker like some of the other Best Westerns I have stayed at.
The neighbourhood is not the most pleasant but its very safe. 1.5 blocks to a Drugstore, 2 blocks to a pizza place and 4-5 blocks from a ton of restaurants in Hell's Kitchen, 6-7 blocks from Times Square and the Port Authority.
All in all, a great place for our group to stay as we were only looking for a place to lay our heads for a few hours every night. We would book there again!!
