More about Morningside Inn

More about Morningside Inn

Freshly renovated and kind to budgets, this original pre-war property offers dorms and private rooms with vintage appeal. Located north of the Upper West Side, this property is in the quiet and safe residential area of Morningside, close to Columbia University and popular with the student set. Convenient to public transport (in particular the 110th street subway), Morningside Inn is a short ride from the theaters and Times Square and is close to many cafes and inexpensive eateries dishing up everything from Southern fried foods to salads and soups. Rooms themselves run the gamut from single basic to deluxe apartment (with kitchen amenities) and are as handy for long-stay travelers as they are for the property's resident students.

The best-value stay of our entire US holiday”

At the price this establishment charges, we arrived with low expectations; we chose for the location and were prepared to put up with the kind of facilities New York offers at these rates. Morningside Inn exceeded our expectations at every turn; for a start, the staff is friendly, informal, and tireless in ensuring you have a satisfactory stay. The room was well-equipped, comfortable, and spotlessly-clean (we realised that some less-favourable comments regarding cleanliness --which leap out at you if you google "Morningside Inn" were written some ten or fifteen years ago, and have no relevance to the current standard); and the location is on the elegant upper West Side close to Central Park and Harlem. We couldn't have been happier!

Home Sweet Home”

The Morningside Inn on the Upper West Side of Manhattan Island is a great place for seasoned travelers on a economy budget. It's my GoTo place when I'm "hoofing it" on a spring or autumn visit. The water has always been hot, the towels are clean, and the staff are courteous and professional, great New Yorkers. The location is perfect for walking, with Broadway Ave. transportation and amenities just a minute's walk away, it's on a quiet and clean street and I should't be sharing these secrets, you might get the room I want, when I head to NYC next time around.

Great place for the money Morningside Heights is a very nice area in the upper West side of Manhattan. Convenient for all areas of New York via the subway system very close to Central Park and some other main attractions. I highly recommend this for someone on a budget and just trying to explore New York City.

Staff, Value, Cleanliness

We had a very pleasant stay at the Morningside Inn. Staff is really friendly and attentive. Our requests were considered and promptly taken care of. We even got an upgrade to an ensuite room beautifully lighted by two with large windows! We were planning to leave the city for a few days out, but ended up extending our stay. We felt that we were experiencing how New Yorker's live! Recommend this hotel for anyone who's looking for a Manhattan stay without the cliché midtown mood.

Great Place to stay!!! Period.”

Great Location. Right up the block from Riverside Park. Staff is amazing. And you just might meet some pretty cool people here.

Definitely got the feel of an NYC hotel without paying NYC prices. Its in the heart of the Upper West Side and everything about it was great. Everything you need is a block away and its about a 20 min train into the city. I will always stay here when I come to NY.

Very satisfied with our experience”

Price, cleanliness, location

The stay was very good. The room is of course tiny but that is what you expect in a place like this for this price. The mattress was reasonably comfortable, there were no bed bugs, the room was clean and smelled fine. The shared bathrooms also smelled very clean always, they were obviously frequently attended too. Sharing a bathroom sucks a little, but you can lock the door, we never had to wait too long for it and you can always use another floor. Overall if you just need a bed and you want to not pay a lot but stay in a really safe part of town this place is great. It is right off 8th ave at 107th so it is only 3 blocks from the subway, accessible easily from there to the rest of the city. There are a bunch of good restaurants and wine and beer stores and grocery stores in the area too. Overall, very pleased with our Morningside Inn experience.

Much better than expected - very impressed!”

Location, helpful staff, comfortable

First of all, from the reviews on here of this place I was really nervous about what I was paying for! However it was the cheapest I could find for ANYWHERE in Manhattan, even if it was on the upper west side. Upon our arrival we were checked into a triple room accidentally for the night, with a shared bathroom which is what I paid for. The next morning we were informed of the mistake at the reception and were transferred to a double room which is what I booked - only they upgraded us to a room with our own bathroom !For no extra charge! AMAZING! The room was very warm and clean - which is great during this time of year, and no rattley radiators in sight. We had our own mini fridge in the room too which was great for storing snacks and drinks in. There was no trouble with anything - our room was cleaned every day, the staff we spoke to at reception were extremely friendly and helpful, the location is excellent, as 110th st station is literally round the corner. I highly reccommend absolute bagels and The Manchester Diner for breakfast - awesome stuff! The only downside I can think of to the hostel is that there are no pans etc to cook your own food in, however with such cheap places around and supermarkets you can buy snacks from this really doesn't matter. The area is pretty good too , We didn't stay around much at night but from what we did I felt very comfortable and didn't feel it was a scary neighbourhood at all. On my arrival I was dreading it from all these reviews, but I was so pleasantly surprised that I'll be definitely staying here again when I return to NYC! Thank you Morningside :)

Does the job”

Morningside inn is no frills, you'll get a room that is clean enough. Had an ancient air con that worked (we went in July and it was HOT). But talk about value for money! Clean room in great location even with surprisingly good coffee served in the basement from 8-9.30am... But don't expect the hotels promise of a 'continental breakfast'.. It was 'corn' muffins.. Never seen a greasy muffin before until that holiday. Didn't stop me. There's no on sweet toilets but two on each floor and was never a problem having to wait. Showers did the job but don't expect consistent hot water. Everything seems to be working.. But only just. Staff was fine but not overly welcoming, cleaners come once a day around 11am and make the beds which was an unexpected bonus. TVs in rooms have some great shows on the free on demand section. To sum up, I'd definitely stay at morningside inn again. Don't let the bad reviews fool you, as long as you don't expect the world on a shoestring budget you'll be surprised with how much your getting for your money!!

I would reccomend this hotel. ”

The staff were really friendly, the beds were comfy, the rooms were warm!

The hotel it's self was locates in the upper west side, which had close restaraunts and subway enterences and is only a short walk from central park, which was great. The staff were really friendly which made the stay easy and we had no problems. On a bad note however the hotel is not the cleanest hotel, the restrooms were dirty and there was no soap provided to even wash your hands. Outside of the hotel rooms corridoors were old fashioned and could do with some refurbishment and major clean. The hotel room door's lock was loose and kept unscrewing which made the door not close sometimes. Back to a positive subject, the room it's self was clean and tidy, warm, fridge and tv was provided and the beds were comfortable, which is great after a long day in NYC. The price of the hotel was pretty cheap, so i guess you get what you pay for. It wasnt a bad stay at all. I would reccomend this hotel for those who are staying just one or two nights max.

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.

Good hotel if budget is limited”

Location, price, access to public transport

Accommodation in NYC is not cheap at all, Morningside inn is probably one of the cheapest. The location is great, if you want a good access to the central park, or close by metro station. Since this hotel is close to Columbia University, getting food and supermarket access are fairly easy. Dispite the negative comments on Tripadvisor, I personally found that the staffs were friendly, the room size is reasonable for the price, and the Internet was working. Overall, a great value if budget is limited.
