Excellent front desk staff, pleasant location & neighborhood!, ”
We had booked a room with a private bath. This was just perfect! Clean rooms and simple room. Front office desk very bubbly and helpful (especially the lady with a husband from Trinidad {we talked a lot but funny enough we never exchanged names - I guess that is the beauty of connection!}). Location is just perfect as the Subway is on 103rd and 110th street which is literally less than 5 mins from Morningside. Also, there is Absolute bagels 2 mins away which is the BEST bagels ever for breakfast! Loved our stay here!

Mold on the floor - dangerous to health”
The room is awful and full of mold and I am sure it is dangerous to health. The personal knows about that, also the manager, but they are not interested at all. Due to the mold it smells very bad and makes the stay even more worse.

The location and price was brilliant the staff was polite but never really looked like anything was being done just sat watching tv, the bathroom wasn’t in the room so had to share it with other guess which wouldn’t have been bad if it was clean it was literally filthy needed a strong bleach clean in my opinion, also think it should be advertised that bathroom is shared, the room it’s self wasn’t all bad although it did have a boiling hot pipe running through it which could be dangerous as there was no warning signs. Over all it wasn’t all bad but if I was to go back to New York I wouldn’t be staying again

This is a very modest hotel. Great for a couple of nights if you don't want anything fancy. The location is great. Close to subway. If you need to park on the street is not bad on the weekends. Room was clean. Private restroom. Small refrigerator in the room. The heat system was too loud. I did not sleep well the first night because of that.

A fine place to sleep, if you want a bed, clean sheets and fuffy towels”
Morningside Inn is in a great location, a walk to Columbia University and 1/2 block from Broadway. This is a stark, no frills kind of place. It is perfect if you are driven by value rather than by seating comfort, spaciousness, decor and a private bath. That said, the bedding was clean, the towels fluffy and the pillows comfortable. I attended a conference from early morning until bed time each of four days, so not much time in the room (which made this work for me)... The wifi was fine and easy to access. The flat panel TV worked well as did the AC in the window.... When I accidentally locked my keys inside my room, the staff couldn't have been better at getting me back in..... I will stay there again in 2020!!! and I am looking forward to it.

has everything but size”
I chose a single-bed room with its own bathroom. I think having my own bathroom was critical. The room was quite small, just a twin bed and a little bit of space to walk around it, but who needs a large room when traveling on a budget. Room / facility was quite clean, but the room was very much not soundproof. Locationwise it is located right alongside Broadway, with easy subway access that directly goes to the main areas in midtown such as 59th, 42nd, 34th, etc etc. There is also a nearby bus stop that goes across Manhattan if you want to go somewhere like the Met or Guggenheim. Not a fancy or beautiful spot, but for the money I would say super value :)

Very basic, awful.”
Very small room even though we chose a superior double. Drawers broken. Bedside locker falling apart. Dried blood smeared on door. In need of redecorating everywhere. Radiator hissed and rattled all night. You could hear the noise from other occupants all night. Bed creaked and groaned with every turn. Sheets and towels were the only clean thing. No iron, hairdryer or toiletries. Extremely basic accommodation !!!!

Good location. Archaic elevator. Spacious room. Awful receptionist.”
Our flight to JFK arrived at around 1AM so I emailed the property beforehand. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we arrived at the property at around 3AM. The receptionist said that our reservation was already cancelled because we didn't arrive before 3PM!! (yep PM -- not AM LOL). I argued that I had sent them an email, but then he says, "Yeah, you said 1AM, but it's already 3AM!" I was tired and didn't have the energy to get mad, so I just apologized and told him our flight got delayed. He then gave us a room and acted as if we were indebted because of his kindness. Yikes.

Both neighborhood and the price are highly recommendable. Staff werehelpful especially the males. The location is ideal with excellent bus service to both east and west side. Plentiful restaurants and cheap eateries. the area is close to parks and seems quite safe even at night. My only criticism is that it is in need of major refurbishment, rather depressing in its "look" and would be a bit off putting to some folks. I overlooked this in view of the other qualities it has to offer.

GREAT PRICE and a stones throw from Central Park”
It is cheap consider the location of this Hotel. If you want a decent room with a comfy bed and a functional shower and a small fridge this is for you. Basically I slept and showered there I was out most of the day. There are cooking facilities I.E. you can cook food. Open 24/7 leave you r key at the office. Great staff with a good attitude. Rooms are cleaned WHEN you want. Fresh towels new soap empty bins and a good tidy up. I thought it was really good. Right near shops and Absolute Bagel (which you must visit) short walk to Central Park and the Subway. One thing, just ONE THING PLEASE put kettles in the rooms, man did I want a cuppa! :-)

The hotel is in a good location near the 103rd stop (#1 train). Price can’t be beat—very reasonably priced. The rooms are not very nice. The staff is horrible and should all fired—except for the gentleman who greeted us at check-in. He was actually very nice and did not act like I was bothering him. While the rooms and the staff could use some improving, the price and location make it worth staying here.

Staff are in desperate need of customer service training. Very, very rude and not professional. ”
Spoke with the manager and the front desk about a our room. I approached them very nicely but received nothing but a bad attitude in return which could not be turned around with kindness. They all need to be fired, res tagged and better trained. People like this shouldn’t work with the public. I never saw a hotel with so many unhappy travelers. I was just staying there while some work was being done in my apartment but these other people on vacation looked miserable staying here. They say it’s a shared bathroom. It’s shared with at least 6 rooms! One toilet and shower per floor. Public door slamming outside of my room all night. Can’t they fix the door so it doesn’t slam? Very depressing room. I booked 2 nights but stayed for one. Non refundable second night. No one wants to stay at a hotel where the staff has nothing but attitude.

The hotel was pretty cheap compared to others in Manhattan. We stayed in the deluxe room, w/ private bathroom. The towels were changed regularly and the room was made everyday. Other than the carpet and walls, the general aspect is good. I suggest changing the carpets, they look dirty and old. Some other negative aspects were: During 3 nights in a row we had no heating, and the hotel never even comunicated us about the issue. The room had very few power plugs and the only one close to the bed was broken. No safe in the room or in front desk. Other than that the hotel had everything we needed and for an excelent price. Also the location is perfect! So close to the 1 train, which crosses almost all of Manhattan! We were also lucky that even though it is a hostel, we had no major noises from the other guests. I would definetly recommend it to other couples with a low budget, and would also use the hotel again, though I think it's important to considere these small isues I listed above.

Needs renovation to make the value justifiable”
Morningside Inn's clear strength is its location. Other good aspects were a clean shared kitchen with a stovetop and microwave and counterspace for food preparation, a functional elevator, and a fridge in the room. Otherwise, this was a stay where I've learned that 'you get what you pay for'. I paid around $95 per day, which for Manhattan was a steal. But there were many flies in my room, the carpets were peeling from the wall base, my bed was broken and sunken into the frame, the shared bathrooms were filthy with paint peeling, broken taps, leaking toilets and were generally unclean by the end of the day due to the high volume of guests on the floor. It simply was not worth the fear and dread of having to enter the shared bathrooms but also dealing with flies in the room. It was an unpleasant stay but I hope that the owners take note as there are little things they can do (adding more people to the cleaning rotation and having a handyman onsite during peak guest times)
