Rooms are clean, staff very nice, I have been in two different rooms and booth with Manhattan view , the bed... More

If you know, or are comfortable with the NYC mass transit system, this hotel offers a slightly out of the way location, but easy access to the center of Manhattan via subway or bus. Stops are within a block or less from the hotel. Services are basic, but if you come to NYC and plan to saty in your hotel... More

This hotel is in a great location if you are on a budget. It is a three minute walk from the subway station (you can see the hotel from the subway but there are no elevators or escalators that I could find). I went to a weekend conference and took the subway every day to Grand Central. The price was... More

For the discounted price of a room per night, this hotel was pretty nice. The hallways and lobby was a bit dingy but the room was very clean and up to date. There was a 32" plasma tv in the room, along with a King sized bed. The hotel's gym had up to date functional treadmills and weight machine. The... More

For this price the hotel was quite nice, the room was absolutely fine and it was really close to Manhattan (2 stops). We had some issues regarding a group of children who were very noise... But the front office solved the problem immediately by given us an even nicer room far away from them..

I stayed in this hotel because I saw some good reviews about the hotel at TripAdvisor. All of the reviews were true, except the cordiality of the staff. The location is also a little scary. But the worse thing I discovered there was when I forgot my backpack when I left the hotel to go to the airport. When I... More

This is a great place to stay for the money. Right next to the subway and Long Island City has a good bit to offer in the way of eating out. The rooms are much nicer than an average Best Western. Free Wi-Fi and parking, both of those could easily cost you $50-$75 a night in the city. Will return.

The hotel is clean, the beds are very comfortable and the staff is friendly, especially Natalie. She always had a smile and did everything she could to meet your needs. I have two complaints about the hotel. One is the breakfast area. It's too small and they don't have warm items like other Best Westerns do. The other is their... More

Having recently returned from a trip to New York I really wanted to write a review about this place, as the main reason we picked it as a place to stay was from reading reviews others had written. Hotels on Manhattan are very expensive and we didn't want to pay a high price for even a cheap hotel. We found... More
