We needed a place to stay in Queens, NY, for two times in three days, on both legs of a trip to Baltimore from Boston. The first night we were given a room with a shower inside of a broken jacuzzi and a sagging bed. On the second night, two days later, we were given a non-smoking room that smelled... More

We should have known that a hotel with bullet proof glass at the front desk was going to be an adventure! We arrived @ 5am after a cross country flight to discover our room wasn't available, lucky we told them the night before we would arrive the next morning. After 4 hours waiting in the lobby, we got a room... More

Only issue was no hot water as their had been a gas leak. We also had no luggage as BA put it on the following flight. Hotel was reasonable, good breakfast... More

Rooms were adequately appointed...linens clean...shuttle service to subway was a great added service. Not really close to anything...need transportation to get to sites and restaurants. Free parking for our vehicle was great. We were not in our room other than to shower, change and sleep!

The hotel was unclean and price not worth to pay at all. I was so surprised to see ashtray in the corridors and cigarette smell everywhere! Hotel entrance is horrible! Wi-Fi internet almost not working. I trusted Best Western website while I was booking as there was one photo for that hotel bathtub doesn’t drain well! I spend the night... More

We have stayed at the Best Western City View for the past 6 years. Although it is not the most modern or up-to-date facility, it is clean and handy to transit. It is so nice to park your car (free) and not worry about driving until it's time to leave. We are not in our room except to sleep, shower... More

The Best Western was not our first choice-- we had actually booked a room for 2 nights at the Red Roof Inn through Priceline, but a mistake was made and they sold our room to someone else. The front desk at RRI re-booked us (a party of 4) at the Best Western. When we arrived, we were first given a... More

There is a reason there are not more pics of this property. When the taxi pulled up I thought it was a mistake. It's a decaying Victorian building right across from Greenwood Cemetery that bears no trace of it's original use inside. It is in a dead zone between many major highways, no shops or food with in a few... More

City View is a great place to stay. If you are coming to NYC to sightsee it is perfect. The subway will get you to Manhattan in minutes. If you are driving to NYC it is especially good because you can park on their property go to NYC and not have to worry about tickets etc. Good value.
