As a Choice Privileges Diamond member, I stay at Choice branded properties frequently, of which Sleep Inn is one. This particular Sleep Inn was one of the best of the brand that I have ever stayed in. The staff are pleasant, efficient, helpful, and cordial.

I thought this hotel was great for my purposes. It was a typical Sleep Inn layout, clean, and the staff was unusually friendly and helpful. Hats off to them. I enjoyed to low cost accommodations that are so close to the Subway. The only issue with the hotel is the proximity to a very large public housing project. I walked... More

This is my fourth time staying with them. The price is fairly cheap and the rooms are always clean. It seems to be in the not so safest neighborhood at first, but it's not bad at all. There is also some pretty good local eateries right outside the hotel. The breakfast is pretty good as well. The breakfast line gets... More

I used to stay in New Jersey while visiting New York City. No more. Queens borough is a great alternative. Sleep Inn hotel is just 3 blocks from a subway station, in a bad looking section, but secure.

We booked through choice hotels and had a comfortable stay. Parking spots are limited and this was our biggest concern. Fortunately, we got a spot and it was a good experience. I wish it were possible to reserve spots immediately upon booking but understand how that can be hard. Street parking is available and it seemed fine. Breakfast is consistent... More

A new hotel directly between the Sleep in and Manhattan is blocking what used to be an excellent view. The Queensboro bridge is still fully visible, but it's not as great as it used to be. The hotel even though it is new, is not perfectly cleaned. The room was good, but they need to step up the cleaning work... More

Management is not HONEST whatsoever. When I made the reservation I was given the amount of US$1,319.90 by trip advisor. When was time to pay I´d paid $ 1,492.22 and it was not the sales tax. Upon my request of why the rates were higher I was given the answer that they can vary the rates according to demand. Thus,... More
