Not the best hotel at all. The rooms were small and definitely need modernising. The room we stayed in did not have any working plug sockets to charge electricals and when we told the manager he didn't really do much about it. The location is average. It's about a 10-15 min walk from the subway station but once you're on... More

After hearing mixed things about the hotel, I was nervous to stay at this location, however when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised. We had a late flight into JFK so we called the night before to let the hotel know that we would be coming in late...there were no issues at check in. They didn't ask us for a... More

Last weekend, we had the great privilege of staying in the Cave Suite! This lovely subterranean accommodation offers a scenic underground view of countless vehicle wheels and pedestrian feet passing on the immediately adjacent Hunters Point Ave. The constantly trickling bathtub faucet and damp musty drafts lend a sublime ambience of cavernous realism to this cozy space. A brilliantly-placed leaking... More

What ever happened to good customer service and friendly accommodations? Are those a thing of the past? I wanted to treat my boyfriend to a couple of nights at a decent place that is the half-way point between my apt and Flushing while we attend US Open. I booked the hotel through Hotwire (which has always been wonderful to work... More

We knew that New York hotels are expensive, and that parking in Manhattan was problematic. So we looked for places in the other boroughs and ended up with this one, a choice based on price, proximity to a subway station, and the availability of free parking. This last point was quite important. We arrived late at night, and by then... More

We treated my sister and her husband to a NYC experience for two days, including a stay at this motel. At the price of rooms in the area, (we selected this motel and opted for one room instead of two! This room was around $250 per night for the four of us. (Not a bad price for the area, BTW).... More

Just what you expect from Red Roof. Clean, functional and affordable. Breakfast was actually better than expected. Price was very good for a NYC hotel. Two tips: If you are driving, this hotel does have a few free parking spots but only enough for about 20% of occupancy. If you need a parking spot check in early. Second, this hotel... More

I stayed in this hotel two times (for 3 and 1 nights) with my wife and son during our vacation in NYC area. The hotel seems pretty old, however everything was clean, nice and in working condition. Staff was friendly, they helped us with orientation in the area and provided us with maps and guides for our trips to NYC.... More

Drab, high-carb only breakfast, but close enough to walk to the 7-Flushing which will take you in to Manhattan quickly. The room was your average room, fine for sleeping at night but I wouldn't want to spend any more time here. I'd prefer to eat for under $5 at the liquor store around the corner rather than eat the complimentary... More
