This will be my first time in the USA so I was wondering can someone recommend me where to stay for one night. I'm looking for a place/motel which is in some safe area not to far from airport and not to expensive (~80$ night). I'm looking for just a one night because next day I'm traveling to another city.

Btw, are the tickets bought on JFK airport much more expensive than those bought online? I will know exact time when I need to travel to another city only once I arrive to airport so I don't wont to buy online before.


Thank you!

The hotels near JFK airport that are safe are usually expensive. (The cheap hotels near the airport are usually not that safe.)
I would suggest staying a bit further away in Long Island City, Queens:
Long Island City Hotels: Check out 20 hotels, with 4,924 reviews

Thanks. Maybe I will stay in Manhattan.

Is this OK location? https://maps.google.hr/maps?client=o...ed=0CAkQ8gEwAA

I see there is a NYC Airporter from JFK to Manhattan for just $15.50. I'm not sure which route are they driving.

Great! Now I only need to find out where is the best location to buy cheap airline tickets. Any advice?

I am a student and I have ISIC card so probably in STA Travel agency they will give me some discount.
