9.4 Excellent
Cons:Facility failure
5.7 Passable
Pros:I choose to stay at Vanderbilt YMCA because it is so convenient and yet does not cost hundreds of dollars a night.
Cons:After staying there several times over the past four years for up to a week at a time, I may change my mind if the quality continues to decline. Each time I've been, the services have gotten worse. I'm not talking about the 25 year old TVs that are so big they are a predominate feature in the room nor am I talking about the creakiness of the bunk beds when you turn over at night, nor the carpet that hasn't been changed in over a decade. I can live with these for three to six nights (our typical stay). I'm talking about asking for an extra pillow each day for two days and never getting it. I could understand if it was overlooked once but when I didn't get it the first night, I asked again and still didn't get it. In addition, our room was not made up one day until almost 5:00. One day the top bunk was not made up but the sheets just laid on the bed in a bundle. Another night the top bunk sheet was made but the blanket was not put on it. So I will try them again but if the quality of service and attitude of the staff continue to degrade we will not be back.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:I liked the in-room fridge, the proximity to the subway, and the workout facilities. These were the best things about the place.
Cons:I didn't like that the staff puts men in rooms next to the women's bathrooms and showers. I also really didn't like that the women's shower room didn't lock properly, which left women vulnerable during their shower time. I checked out after one night because that made me very nervous. The cleaning staff was loud, the front desk staff didn't care about the lock on the shower room door, and only one elevator was working.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Humbly, please inform me about helping with movies about the future of the library. I have approached New York Public Library. Humbly, please inform fully.
6.0 Okay
Cons:My room lights and a fire alarm tweeting caused me distress
7.7 Good
Pros:Simple life, simple place, simple night.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Price and walking distance from
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Staff answered questions via email very quickly. Staff were very friendly. Room, shared bathroom and fadcilities were exceptionally clean. Very affordable. Excellent bang for the buck.
Cons:Staff did not answer phone calls. I tried several numbers and several times.
