The Econo Lodge Times Square offers attractive small rooms. The main attraction of this hotel is its location near the Theater District and subways. Rooms have a comfortable mattress. A space is so small that it's hard to move your suitcase around the bed. Overall, cleanliness of this hotel is good and a continental breakfast is very good. Lower floors are noisy; the hotel provides earplugs, but those who are light sleepers may request a room on the upper floors.

Value hotel in a convenient Midtown location

Because of its proximity to Broadway, the hotel generally attracts tourists, but business traveller stops here too. Due to the small size of the rooms, several tenants have noted that the hotel is not very suitable for families with children. The lobby is plain and on the plain side, with hanging ceilings, granite tile tiles, a few laminate tables, and basic chairs. An ATM and computer terminal for guest use can be found in the lobby. All in all, this attractive property does not offer much ambience but is a clean and convenient place to stay.

The corner of 47th and 8th Avenue, less than two blocks from Times Square

For tourists who want not only easy access to Times Square and Theater District, but also Central Park, and transportation options that provide quick and direct access to most downtown locations, this property is difficult to tear down. It is located on 47th Street, near the corner of 8th Avenue, about a block and a half from Times Square. Although the street itself is not a big one, traffic noise of 8th Avenue and overflow of the nearby theatre district reflects an abundance of local nightlife. There are many pharmacies, chain cafes, and bodegas just a few blocks away, and a host of dining options both within the theatre district and on 9th Avenue. Subway C and E are approximately two blocks from the 50th and 8th,

The rooms are very simple and very small with comfortable beds

Sinks are tiny, with very little cornice space. Large rooms have mini-fridges.
