I was there with my 2 kids last week end. There was not enough parking for every guest, I was "lucky" I got one..... The second evening, when we came back from Manhattan, the room has not been clean up and there was a big plastic bag with all kinds of towels and things to clean in the middle of... More

We decided to book in here for two weeks as hotels in the city were extremely pricey. Conveniently located one block from the subway, at first we were worried about the area but like anywhere in New York it can be dangerous, but after using the subway regularly we encountered no trouble and it gave us a strong insight into...

We chose to stay at this hotel primarily because it's close by the apartment of some friends of ours a little deeper into Queens/Astoria, who like most of our friends in NYC don't have room to put our family up. Although it is located in a rather industrial-seeming area along a street of auto repair shops but few restaurants or... More

We decided to stay here as they offered low prices and free parking. The location of the hotel is a little shady at night we had concerns about parking our expensive car at the hotel however we did not have any problems. The subway is a block and half away from the hotel and you do pass a low income... More

We, as a family of six Australians, just spent two nights at this hotel. We booked through easytobook.com and it was a very reasonable price compared to other hotels. By following the directions on the booking confirmation we were able to easily navigate the subway and walk the block from the subway as per the directions. We were feeling a... More

We just got back from a 5 day trip to NYC. We have 4 kids, so we needed 2 rooms each night and this was the most affordable one with easy access to the city. PRO: Quick walk to the subway: 2 blocks CON: You have to pass ghetto housing and drug dealers just outside the subway station. Don't take... More

Yes, this isn't manhattan. So, buyer beware, you won't find ladies walking their dogs in strollers wearing diamond necklaces noshing on patee. However, this hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and we were able to get one of the few parking spots in the garage. My family and I loved the convenience to the subway. It was nice to... More

The best things about this hotel are as follows: 1) Very reasonable prices by New York standards; and 2) Fairly close to the subway station and a short commute into Manhattan. However, there are a number of serious issues with this hotel: 1) The area surrounding the hotel is very dodgy. It's not too bad in the day-time (and the... More

Handy 2 minute walk to subway. But is located in what I can only describe as a ghetto. I was approached by 2 people begging for their next fix as I walked to the local shop on my first day. After that I had to get taxis in and out. You wouldn't want to walk outside at night. Also cafeteria... More
