History

Established in 1969.

Established in 1969, Liberty Inn has a well-deserved reputation for cleanliness, coziness and romantic flair. The building was constructed in 1908 and originally known as the Strand Hotel; it served for many years as a boarding house for sailors and later became a prohibition era speakeasy, a go-go bar and for a time the notorious Anvil Social Club. Liberty Inn soon took over in 1969 (originally named The Hide-A-Way Motel).

While the "Meatpacking District" used to be a seedy neighborhood with wholesale meat markets, it has transformed drastically in the past couple of decades. With the influx of art galleries, professional offices, clubs, high end restaurants, upscale clothing boutiques, the Chelsea Market complex and of course the Chelsea Piers recreational center, the "Meatpacking District" is now one of the most vibrant and exciting areas of all Manhattan.

Clean, fun and a little creepy, but hey, if you're headed here you already know what you're in for, and if you don't, you find out quick. It's tame by Japanese standards, there's no hello kitty rooms or bondage-ready ironwork. It's very straightforward, plus some mirrors and complementary porn. They leave the creativity up to you.

This place is incredibly clean for an hourly motel. I would even say it's impeccably clean. I wish I know of this place earlier, what a find! Yes, it is a "love" hotel, but definitely a good one. If you you want something fun and spontaneous Liberty Inn will accommodate. Now, I wonder if they allow 3 people to a room ;p

When I was a teenager and really averse to having sex in my family's apartment, I would take my boyfriends here. The hourly rates are low and the porn on the room TVs is hysterical. I love that the Liberty Inn is still around despite the "clean-up" of the Meatpacking District. Maybe I'll bring my husband there sometime, for old times' sake.

Five stars, seriously, because sleazy motels don't get any better than this.

Place is definitely a banging place to bang. The huge flat screens are a great plus. The outdated porn offered however is more for amusement rather than setting any kind of mood. Lights are very moody. I didn't get a mirror on the ceiling though. I had a wall mirror facing the bed which was still a vet nice touch. Ill be going back soon.

Picture this - you're making out with someone outside of Morimoto and you really want to get more serious. 1 block away is Liberty Inn. One of the few places in NYC that does not require a credit card and half your monthly rent upon check in. Liberty is great, or it would be if, EVERY TIME you go there, there wasn't a huge line. And it's not like Cheesecake Factory where they give you a pager and you come back when the room is available. You have to sit there in the extremely well lit lobby like a kid outside the principals office. Everyone is there to do the same thing. Most of the men I have been with will risk the hotel charge on their corporate Amex to save the buzz kill of waiting for a room. The beds are small, low and there is no additional furniture in the room to hang out on (or utilize).

On the upside, the rooms are clean, mirrored and definitely have that 70's porn vibe that encourages debauchery. There is just a bed, a mirror and a red light....

Less than 5 stars because of the line - but keeping the remaining 4 because I have had some toe curling, mind blowing fun there. It's like Vegas - tacky, overrated, but you always think about it afterwards and smile.

I was hoping to shoot my student low budget short film there and at first had a lovely exchange with the manager.  I made time to come and scout the place after he told me I could have 3 rooms for $500--which was double the price of the rooms.  When we got there we decided we only needed one room and suddenly the price was jacked up to $900.  Was treated all of a sudden like I was shooting a porn.  The femail manager was extremely nasty.  Don't waste your time with them.

Very clean, accommodating, and sexy. Wait was about 15 mins. The huge mirror, neon lights and exerciser pad (although not used) were a nice touch. Go for the room with the Jacuzzi. A great way to end the night ;)

This is basically one of those places that people go to do the nasty.  This place is the epitome of a BYOB establishment (Bring your own Bastard or Bimbo).

Its website and Yahoo both show users give this place high marks.  The website also lists this amazing ceiling mural:
libertyinnnyc.com/images…

If you are in the area and really want to have fun, might i suggest the following game.  Stand outside this place and wait for people to come out (don't this stuff while they are going in...otherwise you are just wrong) then:

Yell out:
1)  "I KNOW WHAT YOU JUST DID...OOOOOOOO SHAME SHAME.."
2) I AM TELLIN YOUR WIFE!!!!!
3) AMY, It still hasnt gone away...I think you need to tell this man too..
4) Hi...I am John Doe from the show cheaters...you are on my mini cam

If you are in really good shape and can run quickly:
5) Snap a Polaroid Picture..ask for a donation (this can be extremely profitable)
6) Yell out "Switch!!!" as if you are at a dance..
7)  Make two signs: Great Taste and Less Filling... Hold them up when guys come out...Ask the female for confirmation about which he was.

Note: This game is very dangerous and can lead to serious injury including but not limited to assault, the infliction of pain upon players, cold sores, shortness of breath, death, stained clothing, heartbreak (look on the bright side, now you know he/she really is a liar...), loss and/or destruction of property, fainting, dizzy spells, loss of eye sight.

Disclaimer: No offense is meant to the owners of this business or its Patrons and it is a Hotel and one should not assume just because someone is walking out of this place and looking and acting really suspiciously and walking really fast, and or two people immediately split off after coming out and meet up down the block, or that someone has no luggage that they were doing something out of the ordinary.

IMPORTANT: This place is not family friendly.  If you are vacationing, do not stay there with your children.

Hands down, my favorite place in NYC. It is such a gem. A great place for afternoon whoopee. amazing decor. clean and friendly. reasonable prices. fantastic wall and ceiling mirrors. hilarious porn. the only thing it lacks is a system for restraints in the rooms.

Just by writing a review of this place, you all now know my bizness. *smirk* But that's not going to stop me, because even I am laughing at my latest antics. I ended up outside of Liberty Inn the other day with a friend, but I didn't actually know where I was, so I texted another  friend the address and prompty discovered that I was at a rather famous pay-by-hour sex hotel... which made sense given the company, but was still a bit surprising.

Let me tell you, this place is high-larious. "Couples," if you can call them that, standing around outside, waiting everywhere to "get a room" for a few hours... the waiting bit is funny because if there are a lot of people (and there were), they heckle each other and fight to keep their spot in line, because the concierge (or whatever) doesn't really do a great job of keeping track of what's going on. But when it's your turn, you fill out a form, fork over some cash (pay per hour), and get a key to a room.

Now, not gonna lie, I looked up Liberty Inn in the bedbug registry while waiting in line. It had no reported incidents as of the day I was there. The room way VERY clean, and there were cleaning ladies bustling around everywhere while we waited (we were outside waiting, but as it started to downpour, we got stuck inside).

What's inside a Liberty Inn hotel room? Well, a bed, a TV (with free porn - really), and a tiny bathroom. And really, that's it. There are, much to my dismay, mirrors all over the ceiling and walls (yuck!), and there are some crazy blue florescent lights. You know, to set the mood. I guess that's all you really need, given the utilitarianism of this place.

Apparently Liberty Inn is one of the only remaining establishments of its kind in post-Guilliani NYC. If you're open-minded and this is the type of cultural history/activity that titilates you, I definitely recommend checking it out. This cultural historian was there along with hookers, married dudes, normal-seeming couples, teens, porn-actress-looking chicks, and creepy old men. It's New York City, so why the hell not?

"A perfect secret rendezvous for you and your paramour."

My arm candy and I made our way to the meat packing district, it was her first time in the neighborhood so I gave her a ten minute tour because my desire for  her wouldn't allow for an extensive historical lesson.  The more stimulating lesson would take place in room 103.  Locating this fun nest was quite easy even though it's in one of the most solitary and suspicious blocks in NYC.  Liberty inn really is the only reason to walk on that  block, so if you ever see couples on that block-you already know.  As we discreetly walked to liberty inn, we were awkwardly greeted by con Ed workers who set up shop about a foot away from the hotel entrance.  One of the men basically made himself the door man and looked quite intrigued by the role.  We proceeded to a DMVish check in , I inked a bunch of fake information as suggested by the front desk agent and proceeded to our room.   The art deco design in the lobby  is appropriately playful.  Neon signage, chandeliers and vending machines packed with cheese doodles and condoms fill the lobby hallway.  Her curvy body was oiled to perfection and life couldn't be any better until we received a "courtesy" call from the front desk girl.  We were not ready to leave the party so I requested another hour and this is where the problem arises.  The tattoo-artist-looking agent tells me some Mickey Mouse policy that guests can only extend the stay in 2 hour intervals.  Time was of essence so that wasn't an option for me.  15 minutes later the girl calls back to say hi hurry up.  As we're closing the door behind us, the phone rings again-we didn't even answer... Aside from this non sense policy, the room was very clean and sensually conducive.  My intimate friend and I will definitely return and will plan for more than 3 hours.

I've been here twice.  Don't judge me.  They don't take reservations and have hourly rates, so you know what you/I came here for.  The first time I was there, I was in a room close to the lobby, and the door was very loud with people entering and exiting the hallway.  Ceiling and wall mirrors were AWESOME (I love mirrors), room was clean, lighting was perfect, and had a jacuzzi.  Second room was less fab.  Smaller, no jacuzzi, no ceiling mirror.  Still clean with nice lighting though.  Too bad you can't make a reservation to make sure you get the room you want.

Tried to stay here today only to find out this is a homophobic and bigoted establishment.! I am a gay young professional who has a roommate in Manhattan, as well as my partner has a roommate also. This sounded like the perfect getaway for a few hours to have some privacy between ourselves.

I called up to see if any rooms were available around 12PM in the afternoon, and was told numerous rooms were available but they were first come first serve. I immediately hopped in a cab and arrived 15 minutes later. Upon arriving at the Liberty Inn, the man at the counter informed me there was no rooms available. A Hispanic man and women who had been waiting proceeded to be placed in a room, which I was told was the last one. I then proceeded to sit down in the lobby to wait. He then yelled at me from the counter that all rooms were booked until 6PM. I was disappointed and confused because I had just had a conversation 15 minutes earlier, but just assumed maybe they had a rush.

This caused a significant inconvenience because my partner was already on the way, and we had to scramble to make other plans. When my partner met up with me 10 minutes later, he commented on my outfit a low-cut tank and shorts and thought maybe they were trying to stop a gay clientele from staying. To test this theory, I called the Liberty Inn back in a disguised voice, and was told there was numerous rooms available at the time. I informed the same person in the office I was just there and had spoke to him earlier, and he replied "You are an asshole, don't come back here!" and then hung up the phone.

From the short time I was in the lobby of Liberty Inn, I saw a married man getting a room with a prostitute, a boss with his secretary for a "meeting", and needless to say the list could go on. That's this place's philosophy for you. You can cheat on your wive and bang prostitutes , but whatever you do don't let any gays in!

***Update** Responding to the owners comment

In response to the owner, you have given a very detailed account of your perception of what happened. What you fail to explain, and what is the main source of my complaint, is if you have a customer that is willing to wait in your lobby for a room why not let them? According to you, guests check out early all the time which is logical at an hourly hotel. So why would a member of your staff come out of the office and tell a potential customer not to wait? For a minute, let's forgot about the tone it was said in but we seem to both agree he did say it. Not only did he say it was a 3 hour wait he told me to go to a different hotel down the street. Also, for someone who reviewed the video footage minute by minute did you see a lot of customers check out in the minutes that I walked out? So then when I call back 15  minutes later, how did no rooms too "a few" become available? If you review the video and see "a few" people checking out after I left, I will gladly delete my review and apologize.  I stand by my perception of what happened that day. And if your unclear of how your business and clientele is perceived, please speak to a local police officer.

Had an amazing time!!! The room was perfectly sized, and SUPER clean. The hourly rates are reasonably priced. We paid $90 (plus a $20 cash deposit that you get back before you leave) for 3 hours. There was no wait time for our room. They give you a courtesy call 20 minutes before your time is up. I will definitely come back here again!

If you're looking for a hourly hotel with reasonable rates, this is the place to go. $70 for 2 hours isn't bad at all, and it's probably the best deal you can find for the cleanliness level. The rooms are a bit small, but are enough to accommodate their purposes. And the décor is colorful and fun, which really sets the mood. So if you're in the area and looking for a place to host your spontaneous intimate excursions, I would recommend Liberty Inn.

I'm a single mom who rarely gets a break along with a bf who doesn't have privacy at home.  This place is the best for the three hours a week it takes to forget about everything.  I'm a clean freak and this place is really clean.

In someways, this place has saved my life.  Thank you Liberty for the great service you  provide to so many of us!

For what is it mainly used for (fucking) this motel/hotel (HOLIDAY INN!! Sorry, had to throw in that Pitbull reference) is the place to go in the city. This sex motel/hotel (HOLIDAY INN!) is pretty discreet, low key and unless you read this review or go there to seal-the-deal, most other people won't realize what kind of establishment this is.

The prices here are reasonable. Some might freak out over the prices depending on your budget or where you come from BUT for the location you're in and for the services you get, its really worth it. For short 3-4 hours stay its about 90-120 bucks depending if you get a regular room or a room with a hot tub. And for an over night stay its about 160-180 bucks or so.

The prices are well worth it I feel. Though the rooms are quite small, they'll do perfectly fine for fucking, recovering and perhaps some cuddling afterwards. The rooms are also really immaculate, sanitary and it never feels like you just laid on some other persons love juice. Every time I've been in a different room, it feels like I walked into a giant, brand new sneaker/shoe box or brand new car.

Each rooms decor is different and comes equipped with a black light, which sets the mood I suppose. Some have ceiling mirrors or "romantic" paintings on the wall, there's TV with porn, and they all have very clean bathrooms that have the basic toiletries.

There's also a dispensary with condoms and lube and of course one for soda, water and other snacks.

If you don't have your own place or can't bring your company back to your own place, or if you're just visiting out of town and looking for a place to get your groove on, whatever the case may be that you need a place to pork, then you really can't go wrong with this place. One block away from the Hudson River and Chelsea Piers, right next to the high line. You can't lose!!

P.S.: I didn't want to write a review about this place because it sorts of a hidden gem. Most people I know don't have a clue about this place BUT I felt I would be doing a service for those who don't have anywhere else to pork. Just say the secret password when you go in.

I use to go here all the time with my boyfriend, to get away and everything. Its a little nice inn bit one day we ran a couple minutes late, literally like 5 mins and they sent security up for us. You see this man in a suit knocks on the door demanding us to leave luckly we were ready. So we go downstairs to get our deposit and we get the nastiest stare from this asian lady. Keep in mind we've been going there for a while so she knows us already and she scolds us like children saying "never be late".

So we come here again thinking everything was blown over but no. The same asian lady was there. She had a crabby attitude and demanded more money from us as a deposit. Seeing as it was a deposit we took out money and paid. So this stupid asian lady asks us for Identification (FOR THE FIRST TIME) and proceeds to be terribly rude saying now you know how the process feels like. When were done we go downstairs collect the deposit and she snickered "Money gets you down here faster". The workers here are rude as fuck and considering it was the first time we were "late" we were treated like criminals. Not coming here ever again, they lost some good loyal costumers. Remember kiddies neva be late. Stupid bitch.

We stayed here on a road trip across the states. We chose this hotel Liberty Inn for the location and the free parking. The motel has the same comforts as motels you find along the highway, only this one is New York of a major city. The biggest advantage of this motel is also the biggest disadvantage. Being in the middle of the city you get a great deal of noise. 2 busy streets, a gym and a nightclub around the corner can affect your night sleep. It didn't bidder us at all, great stay for a reasonable price!

The thought of going to an hourly hotel/motel used to make me cringe. But the Liberty is exceptionally clean......really...really clean. Actually cleaner than some 4 star hotels in the city. That being said this place is used for purpose of........
The rooms are small, but how much space does one need to ..........
The jacuzzi rooms are great if you can get one, they are additional $20. Prices range from $70-100 during the week for 2-3 hrs...to 80-120 on weekends.Friday/Saturday nights you may have to wait, and they do not take reservations. Also after midnight the minimum stay is 3 hrs .

How can this place have great reviews?
The very ghetto, dry black lady at the front says "no rooms." When is there a room available? Mmmm check back in 30 minutes. Then my friend asks when and she says 1 hour. He says will u tell us when it's ready? No its first come, first serve. Ok so we're first. We still have to check back while u check in other people? So ridiculous.  She should be fired.

I mean its fine, clean and private and it gets the job done. Prices are good related to other places in the city (for real) and is CLEAN... It has a really funky (funky good) atmosphere that makes me feel in a Kubrick's movie. It gets a little bit crowed sometimes but if you make plans and be prepared to wait there is not much to worry about.

The girl from the bar is super nice, so say hello to her when you go there.

It's absolutely perfect for what it is. SUPER CLEAN, cozy little rooms. 4 channels of pornos, a Liberator Flip (google this) exercise pad, mirrored ceilings (not in all rooms be sure to ask), and a perfect out of the way spot on the West Side Hwy. Guy behind the check in window is very casual and cheery, with no attitude to be found.
The rates are very reasonable, and if you're in the mood and feel the need--trust me it's TOTALLY worth it.

Cannot speak about the lines or wait times other ppl experience because we go at lunch on the weekdays and there's NEVER a line at that time.
