The place is very neat and clean. Location is really convenient, bus stops and subway stations all within a few blocks walk. Plenty of restaurants near by.

Room was so small (could barely open a suitcase) and warm. It is fine if you are looking for cheap accommodation in New York, it’s clean, just very basic. Location is good!

Clean but too small
I booked this hotel based on the reviews. We stayed for 4 nights, the room was so small there was barely room for our suitcase. The hotel is clean and the staff were very nice and helpful but with the room being so small it was not very comfortable. The heater was extremely noisy also, there was an air conditioning unit right outside our window which meant there was a constant loud noise from it also. The bed was too small for 2 adults and the bedclothes also too small which left you cold in the middle of the night. I had to get up and put my jumper on. It is not as close to times square as i had thought either.

Our experience at this location was OK. The POD on 39th street is better; it has better service and a better accommodation and style. Upon arrival at this location, we found out that there was an issue with our reservation. The front desk was not helpful in trying to rectify the problem. We ended up solving the problem amongst family members. The room was clean. I would not return to this location.

Pod 51 is great
The room was a bit snug but was cozy. the shower and washroom was separate from the room, it would’ve been nice to know that beforehand.

Give it a try and you will be surprised
Small and efficient but exactly what you need if you are not spending a lot of time in the room. Was a little worried about the shared bath but it was actually really conveniently located and there were even little lights to let you know which bathrooms were available. Location is great for this spot and the bar/restuarant downstairs is a blast.

Nice room, but somewhat falsely advertised.
The room was nice and the bathroom was clean, however the listing online did not outwardly mention that the bathroom with a shower was a shared one among the entire floor.
