Great hotel with low rates. 15 mins to manhattan. Subway one block away. Run down area but its perfect for commuting to the city. Will definitely come again. Breakfast area could be improved though. Very small for the amount of guests. Overall , 4/5

With 2 teenaged children we knew sharing one room would always be a compromise but this was a joke! I have never been squashed into such a tiny space. I instantly called the front desk and got nowhere- there was apparently not another room in the hotel, not even for more money, no upgrades, singles, extra rooms, nothing for the... More

We stayed for a week. The two -double bed room is too small for 4 people, but at least it is clean. The breakfast area is awfully small: it is less than a half of a floor. You can imagine that many people squeeze in the tiny area when the hotel is fully booked. The neighborhood, as what other reviews... More

I stayed at this hotel recently as it was very convenient for the subway to Manhatten and was reasonably priced compared to "normal" New York prices. Our first disappointment was the size of the room, it was ridiculously tiny. The gap between the wall and the bed was around 8 inches, through which we had to squeeze to the toilet.... More

The hotel itself- very nice, I'd expect rooms like nice to go for a lot more in NYC. Staff were friendly and helpful. I'd stay again. The area isn't that great, though. Our cab driver showed up where the subway was and what areas nearby to avoid. Subway entrance is just a block away, so going straight there is no... More

The Hotel said it had limited parking, so when we arrived very late at night we were not surprised that there was no parking. We finally found a parking spot on a street a couple of blocks away. When we checked in we were told that we needed to move the vehicle by 8:30 AM as they were cleaning the... More

I like this place, but visitors should be aware that the hotel borders the largest project in the United States, Queensbridge. The F train is 3 blocks away but please be careful to and from the subway.

What's not too like. Rooms are clean, breakfast is ok (although very busy, and had to take away to my room), location is ideal for getting to and from the airport, and only a handful of stops away from Times Sq. Not located in the nicest part of town, but the subway is only a 2 minute walk, and felt... More

Our family of 5 stayed at this property for 4 nights while we toured around Manhattan during the day. The staff were very helpful. Let it be known that this property is in a sketchy area. We stayed here because we had a car and did not want to deal with it in Manhattan. The property only has 15 parking... More
