The Travel Inn is a dead ringer for the Skyline (see above), but with a few important differences. Like the Skyline, it has a pool, a gym, and parking facilities, but it one-ups its rival with the size of its pool (a summer-only facility about twice as large as its rival’s), its gym (also a hair bigger), and the fact that it gives guests free parking—a very rare perk in this parking-poor city. Rooms are renovated each year and are therefore immaculate, with good, firm mattresses and a standard motel look, but they’re markedly smaller than Skyline’s, though the prices are similar. Locale? Though it’s as far west as the Skyline, in this area of town the Off-Broadway theaters crawl down 42nd Street all the way to Tenth Avenue, so it feels less remote.
