Morningside Inn Won't Break Your Budget

My wife and I were traveling on a bit of budget. This summer has been unusually warm and as a couple we appreciate our privacy. How can we find a private bathroom, a quiet room, and air conditioning in budget accomodations though? Well, Morningside helped us out. The room was small, granted. The bed left a bit to be desired. However, the room was quiet. We had a window AC unit that worked well, a ceiling fan, a private bathroom with a great shower, even a closet complete with hangers. All this for less than $120/night.

The subway was about three blocks away and without transferring we were right in Times Square each day. We asked for fresh towels daily and received such. We also asked for extra pillows and got them. What we didn't get was rude service or "front desk attitude" so popular in budget minded acommodations.

I was a little put out that there was no available internet in our room but with a Starbucks two blocks away it wasn't a deal breaker! I do make one recommendation. Make sure to enjoy the coffee and pastries at 'Garden of Eden' market just one and a half blocks away.
Cheap - and that's what you get!

We chose the hotel because it was very cheap and not a hostel. And we got less noise than at a hostel. Other than that, it's not much different from a hostel, no breakfast room, shared bathrooms and a rather shabby place. There were little kitchenettes - also shared - with one pot so you could boil water, and then there was a fridge in the room. With the low price you can't expect more and the neighbourhood seemed pretty safe. Close to the subway!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Morningside Inn Hotel

Cheap Sleep in NYC

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from 2 nights at the Morningside. The room was very clean. We had a triple room, (one double bed and one single) with private bath. The room had a clean working refrigerator and a window which opened. The hotel staff were helpful and polite. We were not able to get extra pillows- one was provided per person. Although the shower water was not cold- it was never hot enough for us.
The room lock was keyed and no dead bolts, chains, or other security features were provided. We added a chair next to the door at night.
All in all we were very pleased with the Morningside. Our room cost $88 per night. We were able to spend more money in NYC with the money we saved by staying in this hotel. Don't stay here if you want luxury. If you want a back to basic place to lay your head the Morningside is a fine choice,

Time Enjoyed

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have Just returned from my trip to NY and I have got to say that I enjoyed myself at Morningside Inn.
The service there was very good. I was greated with professionalism by the front desk staff. They made me feel comfortable and glad that I picked that Inn to stay at. All my question were answered especially when I asked about places to visit, which made it easy for me to get around and enjoy some sites. The rooms were very comfortable and private. If ever in NY again, I would gladly go there once again for my stay.

A place to sleep

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Morningside Inn was not as good as i expected. We had trouble finding a budget hotel in NYC over the weekend, and the Morningside was one of the only ones with rooms but we had to share bathroom facilities. We still paid more than we hoped. The best thing about the hotel is that there was lifts.
But the downfalls were the size of the room, which was tiny. The bed was sloped and I kept on rolling onto my husband. The hallways were filled with smoke and being 6 months pregnant I was not happy. There was also hot water pipes in the walls which rattled ever time someone on other floors took a shower or went to the toilet. It was pretty grimy, although the staff were nice enough, but not all that helpful.

Highly Recommend

from A TripAdvisor Member
I read alot of reviews before staying at the Morningside Inn and was actually having second thoughts about staying there. If you are reading this and are feeling the same way...ignore the bad reviews! I stayed here for a week with three friends and it was great!! Deluxe double room with our own private bathroom, mini refrigerator, cable tv, A/C (though we didn't use it since it was freezing out), windows open, daily maid service, public kitchen, vending machines, 3 short blocks from subway station, close to many restaurants. The manager was awesome and was always willing to help with anything we needed. The only bad thing about our stay was that during the first 3 days they were putting in new tile for the floor (which didn't really matter anyway since we woke up to go out early every morning). I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to visit New York on a budget. Very clean and very affordable.

NYC Cheap and Basic extended stay

from Cartier
As early reviewer stated, don't listen to THE WHINERS! I've stayed at this hotel two times and the second time for over three weeks. No, its not your $300 a night hotel, but my room was clean the availbility of the shared restrooms was fine. I didn't have to wait for anyone. Most people just don't understand the concept of NYC hotels. Most hotels under $200 a night have shared restrooms. If you want an expensive hotel then be ready to spend it, but if you're in the city to see the sights, shop and enjoy the nightlife then stay here.

NO, not all the shared bathroom hotels are clean as this one, but I'm a very picky person and I wasn't grossed out at all here. Don't stay at the West Side INN next door that was gross!!

Very Nice

from A TripAdvisor Member
I enjoyed staying at the morningside inn during my stay, as soon as I walked in the young lady at the froont desk greeted me with a friendly attitude and was very helpful thoughout my stay when I needed directions on how to get by since this is my first time in New York! all her instructions were right on target. I got my room cleaned about every day and the area is nice and quiet. I also had a room with a bathroom air conditioning and cable tv, even a mini refrigerator(since I understand they also have rooms that dont have bathrooms at a lower price)


from A TripAdvisor Member
You would be safer sleeping in a subways station. I locked myself out of my room and the matienence woman was able to break in with a credit card. I dare you all to google "MorningSide Inn November 7 2003" and see what comes up cause it gets worse.....You will be horrified, shocked, and dismayed.....NYC at its finest! Where was security when people needed them??

t Listen to the whiners...

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is a bargain compared to other hotels in New York City, but please put things in perspective:
1) If you expect things to be like a 4-star hotel, GO TO A 4-STAR hotel. This hotel was clean enough for me. Just like visiting a friend or relative who lives in an old house. Not perfect, but good enough.
2) If you are the queasy-type-because-I-can't-shower-pee-etc-in a hallway bathroom, please go (and pay for) a 4-star hotel.
Morningside was cheap enough, clean enough for a $75-85 hotel in a city where rooms average two or three times that. Nothing more, nothing less. Would love a TV in the rooms, but otherwise, it was just what I paid for: a place to sleep and shine up.
BTW, saw no mice/bedbugs. Just a stray cockroach. Stomped it, lived to tell.

This could be the end of your trip!!!
don't go there!! it ids not worth the discount, you'll have the worst vacation ever - read other reviews...

Disgusting........ But you get what you pay for!!!!!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Morningside Inn.......... What can I say???????? Never again. I visited New York with a friend in November and was really looking forward to it as I'd never been before. We booked a really cheap break which (including return flights from London) was £278. I assumed we had a really good deal talking to other friends who had been previously been and paid £400+ for the 3 nights at other hotels. If I has known what I did now, I would have gladly paid the extra money to stay somewhere decent. The place was an absolutely dump!!!!!!!

When we arrived the man on the reception said he was giving us one of the "good rooms" but the room we were in was anything but. Firstly I wasn't happy with the security of the place, the door of our hotel room was extremly loose and I was sure it would have come open with a kick which did worry me slightly as we were 2 girls travelling alone.

The room itself was dark, dingy and the window looked straight out onto a brick wall and wasn't even the size of a double room. Two small single beds were squeezed into this room along with a fridge and a chest of drawers so there wasn't enough room to swing a cat in there. The bedding did appear to be clean though, which is the only positive thing I can say about the place. To my horror though I found at least 2 small centipeady/beettle type creatures running around in the room!!!!!!

And don't get me started on the bathrooms!!!!! Apparently they were cleaned everyday, but they were vile, digusting places. My personal hygeine is very important but even contemplated not using the bathroom for the 3 nights we were there as I didn't want to get in the shower or use the toilet. Also the toilet paper ran out on the 1st night and wasn't replaced in the bathroom throughout the rest of out stay and when we mentioned it at reception they said they did replace it, but it must have been taken by other guests. They did give us our own roll though........ Again insects seemed to have taken up residency in the bathroom (and I'm not talking about the other guests).

To put a finer point on it........ If you are going to New York, definitely give the Morningside Inn a miss!!!!!! But I got what I paid for........ If it is a dirty cheap hotel, it is that cheap for a reason!!!!! Because it is nasty.........

Top Local Tips for New York City

Morningside Inn Do not believe everything you read,some people opinions is base on what they're expectations are.if they are not met all the negativity starts to come.I read all the negative comments about Patrick the manager and I saw nothing but professionalism and courteous behavior.

Garden of Eden Local Market on corner of 107th & Broadway - MUST go mmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!

Not pretty While the hotel was nice, the rest of New York is not-not for me. It was loud, smelly, sticky, & too, too FAST! The most user unfriendy place I have ever visited, although the people were very nice (probably because they have to endure this ugly, loud, abrasive place together). The police actually had a 20-30 minute brazen event in which they honked their horns & ran their sirens~It was most unnerving (and rude!). I kept flashing on male gorillas thumping their chests. There was construction all over, so one had to walk in the streets--in front of other honking vehicles. Everything was dirty--I felt like I had to wear goves just so I didn't touch some old sticky stuff. I am from Atlanta where the buildings are new, clean, & bright. New York is old, dark, & gritty. And not green! No flowers, no birds, just miles of screaching subways. With grafti.
