The only thing good was that the hotel is near an apartment that we're buying.
Awful! This is the worst value for money that I've experienced in 43 years of domestic and international travel and the WORST lodging that I've ever stayed in in the US. The hotel is DIRTY. Hairs in the bathtub, behind the door, and in corners of the bathroom. The toilet wouldn't flush unless more water in the bowl using a pail under the sink. The hall carpets are DIRTY and spotted. There were no towels in the room. The bed was lumpy. I was bitten by some insect and possibly got bedbugs. Service is terrible. The breakfast came late and wasn't what we ordered. The pictures look NOTHING like the inn! The place was decorated in the early 80's in coral and green and not maintained since. The furniture looks as if it was second hand then. The cabinets are worn and torn. The room was overstuffed with this OLD furniture that lacked any charm. From the looks of the reviews, the hotel has a shill write a positive review now and again to keep the average rating higher.

Terrible. The worst hotel I ever stayed.

I travel worldwide almost every month, and often to New York. This hotel was my worst experience ever in the world and in New York city. The room rate was not cheap. The room is not cleaned properly and very dirty (even after I requested to be cleaned with more care). The furniture was all old and very unattractive, some looked as if they were picked up from a garage sale. Some furniture was broken. The wall was peeling off. The room key jammed and had to be replaced. The floor is not flat, and curved in towards the centre of the room. The front desk is closed after 7pm and only opens after 9am. If you are out during the day, you never see the front desk staff. The communication is mainly through email, which is fine if it is effectively answered, which was not the case. The requests sent by email was either ignored, or agreed upon but not effected due to the lack of communication between the person who respond the email and the person who is supposed to take the requested actions. Breakfast is too simple - only three items. The only option for egg is a hard boiled egg, which is boiled on previous days kept in the fridge and served cold out of fridge. You must select the breakfast items in advance, but they can change your preferred items due to the lack of supplies without any advance notice. Breakfast is prepared in the basement and served by the seemingly untrained staff or not properly clothed as the staff who prepare food to ensure a proper hygiene practice. The staff was unhelpful. No client-orientation. One did not even know how to speak to clients respectfully.

Cheap place to stay when you are in a tight budget

Nice Staff, great breakfast, great price for the room
The room is not updated but you feel like you are staying in someones home. For the budget minded person this is a good alternative to staying at a hosstel. The staff was super nice, the room needed a better bed but other than that the room was clean and comfortable. Loved all the pillows on the bed. Best price we could find during Easter break for Manhattan NY.

This hotel should rethink its business model

location, relative quiet, high ceilings
Despite making a confirmed reservation with Agoda five weeks before arrival, the Gracie Inn had no record of this. I was made to wait over a half hour before finally being given a room. The young man who was the sole attendant was verbally apologetic while spending his time trying to find out what went wrong instead of getting a cold and tired guest into a room. The movable furnishings appeared to be random gleanings from a downscale auction. And here's a tip for anyone planning to go there: if you need to flush the toilet, fill the bathroom wastebasket with water and empty it into the bowl. This could be a nice place, and for some people perhaps it is. I found it depressing. For a couple of thousand dollars, if that, those rooms could have a little charm. Like nice rugs on the wooden floors and furnishings above the Salvation Army level. Management is evidently trying to automate a bed-and-breakfast. It doesn't work.

Great location but substandard service

Location, location, location
Had it not been for the excellent location, we would have said that the stay at the Gracie Inn spoiled our enjoyment of this fabulous city. But although it was depressing returning at night to this dingy inn & appalling daily breakfast experiences, the proximity to the Metropolitan Museum, Central Park, Guggenheim & the Lexington subway line mollified the disappointment. But the warm bread (that passed for toast), & the need to constantly request basic items that were absent (eg cups), was annoying. The entrance halls are shabby and need attention. The inn was unattended when we arrived from an international flight at 10.30pm & because of trouble with our cell phone, we were unable to access the door lock details sent when we were in transit in the air. Although we were finally able to get in, it was disconcerting to find yourself locked out in the streets of NY at night when arriving after a 20 hour flight. In 3 days we only saw once what appeared to be the manager in the office.

Great for the Price on Upper East Side

location, The staff very friendly and helpful, price and quality of sheets and towels
I would recommend the Grace Inn. I couple of things need to be corrected. NO free parking it is on the street. Th WiFI didnt work they need to fix it. The breakfast could be improved by serving Fresh NY bagels.
