This is a great choice for some one who would like to save a few $'s on a hotel. We stayed here while we were looking for schools for our daughter. The hotel is immediately on and off the highway, no inner city driving. Clean rooms, easy, safe walk to the train stop (5 large blocks) that will take you... More

The hotel was very clean, my room had a fridge and a microwave. Parking is free but they only have a few spots. The staff was always friendly. When checking in I asked about food places that deliver. I was given a menu for Punjabi Hanndi. Very good Indian food. The hotel has the standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast and... More

My daughter and I met in New York for a spring break vacation that we had looked forward to for several months. We tried to get a hotel in Manhattan, but everything within a decent price range was taken; I think the big New York Invitational collegiate basketball tournament was going on. We finally secured lodging at the Holiday Inn... More

We caught an internet ad for $134 a night, but when we called Holiday Inn's Booking service , they quoted a $149. When I mentioned the $134, the man doing the booking said, "Okay," and we booked for three nights. What we didn't realize is that there are so many taxes added on that the final cost was actually about... More

We came to New York during Tartan Week last week with downtown Manhattan being extremly busy so I found this hotel absolutely great value for money. No problem at all getting the subway into Manhattan, an easy 20 mins ride and absolutely safe to walk to the nearest subway station (no7 train to 40 Lowery St) The room we stayed... More

OK, lets get things straight, this hotel is not for you if you want to stay in the centre of manhattan nor is it only a "few minutes" walk from the subway as the website suggests. It is however very clean and modern, (going through a re-fit as of March 2006). The staff were friendly and keen to help with... More

I can't fault the hotel for its cleaningness, or the friendliness of the staff. Unfortunately for me, I was a tourist - and to be honest, I wished I'd paid extra and stayed in a hotel in Manhattan. The location is very poor. It is located right beside a freeway - lucky for me i requested a room facing the... More

The free parking and complimentary breakfast are a plus! I have been here twice and my first experience was horrible. Check out was a hassle, the young spanish lady at the front desk 1.

If you like dirty carpet, bad odor, noise, hard beds and heavy smell of air freshner, (and I do mean heavy and not just the room) than this is the place for you. This place is no bargain for the extra $30 - $40 dollars you can stay at a nicer place in Manhattan or stay by LaGuardia or JFK... More

Holiday Inn Express, Long Island City (Queens) New York. As a former New Yorker I was eager to stay in this hotel owing to it's GREAT location and value. 39th Street (Queens) at the Long Island Expressway, near Greenpoint Avenue is convenient to both highways and subway. The motorist can choose either the (toll) Queens Midtown Tunnel or the (free)... More
