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

Booking.com handled the electronic reservation, Amex guaranteed the rooms. Yet even with two heavyweights on our side, we did not get what we paid for. Two queen beds became one. The "city view" became a room overlooking the expressway; and it was a loud, busy expressway. Breakfast was 7-9 am, but even at 8 am there was no milk for... More

Stopped at this hotel on a USA roadtrip - easy access from the highway. Had to circle the block to enter the car park but we were pleased to find a space to park for free. Arrived at 10am so obviously couldn't check in but they let us leave our car. We walked the 10/15minutes up to the subway station... More

The first time i stayed at the Red Roof inn was in November 2011, but back then it was called the Queensboro Hotel. This year i chose it again because my first stay was pleasant, and loved that the subway was of walking distance. Mr. Gonzalez, the night manager made us feel welcomed again. Didn't expect he'd still be there.... More

I thought I was lucky to find this hotel - free parking, 30 minutes to Midtown Manhattan by subway, almost half price of other comparable hotels. Those perks still are there, but... after 3 nights stay, I have 30+ bedbug bites all over my arms and legs. Now I spend my days in fear of bringing some undesired souvenir (aka... More

A nice hotel easy access from the highway and nice and quiet, it felt safe and has a nice pool. The breakfast was good, so why unlucky? After an easy check in we went to our room which had a musty smell, I soon found the reason, the carpet by the bed was soaked, it must of been recently cleaned... More

The bed was kinda firm. Pillows were great! Towels were not soft! Staff was great. Location was good for what I needed. Shower was great. Ac worked well. Breakfast was pretty average. Parking was super tight. I would stay again!

This is budget (cheap) hotel in an old building in a safer neighborhood. If you are looking for a place to sleep and shower without spending double, triple the money, this is it. Yes, the carpet is stained, the rooms tiny and smelly, and the free breakfast area crowded. This is not a shiny, spacious suburban hotel. But there is... More

Got a cheap price on Hotwire for 70 dollars a night, then when we checked in realized that this is really a 2 star hotel, not like a real Red Roof Inn. Only one garbage receptacle in the room, shower curtain didn't close so water dripped on floor, and mattress was very hard. Thin bed covering so had to crank... More

Stayed 3 nights with 8 year old son. Needed a hotel between Citifield and Manhattan. It was a half mile walk to the convenient 7 train. The walk was safe even at midnight when returning from Citifield. Service was good. Room was clean. Showers an AC/Heat worked. Some fixtures broke but didn't effect functionality. We slept well. Breakfast was just... More
