    Overnight at airport alternative



    Pros: Clean, dry, safe

    Cons: No bathroom

    I am in the travel industry and have spent too many nights at airports caused by delays or cancellations. Although I use hotels on some occasions, they can be very expensive at short notice. I recently had an 8 hour delay, thus leaving me stranded at the airport before my flight. Hotels were all full or ridiculously priced. So, I went online and rented a car. At such short notice, there are usually magnificent deals. I actually paid $29 all inc for a brand new sonata. I used the bathroom at the airport to freshen up, and then took the shuttle to pick up my car. I was honest and told the rental company that I was just looking for 6 hours sleep, and although not sure if illegal, was allowed to sleep in the car in the lot. Totally clean, and totally safe. I reclined the passenger seat and it was like a bed. I slept like a log. I have now done this multiple times at various airports worldwide. Why not?

    Surprisingly Not Terrible



    Pros: well lit, 24x7 Au Bon Pain coffee

    Cons: Couldn't really sleep

    I missed a connecting flight and stayed at LaGuardia overnight. 10pm-330am I was at the 24 hour Au Bon Pain catching up on the last season of Westworld and drinking coffee by the gallon. Even at midnight there were probably three dozen people here, half with their heads down on the table catching a little shuteye.

    At 330 the TSA came back and opened the pier and I went over to the gate and caught a nap before my fight. Wasn't the worst experience in the world.

    Pros: Bathrooms, WIFI, security

    Cons: Airport closes 11pm-4am

    Terminal B.. there is a homeless problem because the LGA / government has not done enough to better the situation. Many people here have mental illnesses. LGA has a program called Volunteers of America. These men and womene go around counting homeless people and asking them if they want to go to a city shelter. These workers are NOT Social workers, doctors, nurses, or other medical professional. They wake people up and tell them to leave, if they do not want to go to a shelter. I know this because I am one of these homeless people. I have been staying at LGA since 2013. I do not feel safe in city women's shelter. I could not sleep. Other women had mental issues. Also, young women were gang members. I am mentally saine. In great health. I do not drink, nor do drugs. I have been looking for a stable job, but have not been lucky. I have no family and no friends. But I do work part time as a cleaner/ housekeeper. Try to get temp work in factory. I leave at 5am and do not return until 8pm. Find a seat in the food court where I try to sleep for a few hours. Also, I just happen to stumble upon this article. Wanted people to know my opinion from a homeless person. The other side of the story.

    Worst airport experience ever in my life! I needed to wait overnight in the airport. They closed all the gates and there were not even a chair to sit.
