My husband and our best friend stayed here for 5 nights in April. We had an excellent stay. This was all of our first trips to NYC and we were aware before arriving that the area in Queens/Long Island City might be a little sketchy, but let me set your mind at ease. We never were the least bit uncomfortable... More

The people at reception were all helpful and particular credit to Joe for his willingness to offer any travel tips. The location is good in that you are barely 20 minutes from Manhattan and 5 minutes walk from the nearest subway station. The view of Manhattan is none too shabby so ask for a room at the front! The room... More

We had a great stay at this Sleep Inn. It was clean, comfy, and had a great staff at the front desk. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family who need an affordable place to stay while visiting the city. :)

I was surprised and delighted by how quiet and clean our room was. We had a great view of Manhattan from our 10th story room. Breakfast was good with lots of variety. Staff was very helpful and professional.

The Hotel is near the subway, but the block isn't so good for a woman that travel alone. I arrived alone and it wasn't so good. I enjoyed breakfast. We were 4 in a room and the space wasn't enought to be comfortable.

If you are looking for budget accommodations close to Manhattan without the Manhattan high cost then this might be a good choice for you. We arrived at JKF and took the Air train to the subway and then subway to hotel. It took about an hour and cost only $7.50 per person. Getting from the hotel to Times Sq. was... More

This is a okay hotel but rooms are nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I checked in with a lady name Isret. She introduced herself as such and was very efficient.

We stayed here three nights and I wish I would have booked this hotel also for the latter part of our New York holiday instead of double priced hotel in China Town, Manhattan. Subway station is really close by, so it doen't really matter if the neighbourhood is kind of depressing, you don't really have to see that so much!... More

We were four females (age 17 to 60) staying for 6 nights and only needed a hotel to sleep and shower so for this it was great. Bathroom was clean but had a very small counter and housekeeping always left only ONE washcloth so daily had to ask for more. Beds were comfortable. Hall and room carpet is in desperate... More
