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

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
