This is an older hotel. But the staff was beyond amazing taking care of any problems we had and were super friendly. Also great free breakfast and parking. Short walk to subway station in safe neighborhood. Nestled in good clean community. Great value for the price while visiting New York City.

I've read so many mixed reviews I felt I had to give my 2 cents so here we go. When we pulled in I didn't know what to expect, the receptionist wasn't super inviting but remember that she is a New Yorker so she was all business and straight to the point. We went up to our room and was... More

I have been coming to this hotel every year for the past seven years. There are a lot of benefits of staying here. The hotel has done some upgrades like replacing all of the beds. The price is very good, much cheaper than staying in Manhattan. They also provide free parking which is very rare in NYC. The free breakfast... More

My wife found this hotel on-line for the free parking. We drive from Minnesota. I liked the looks of the hotel - like a small country inn. We first came to NYC in Oct, 2002 and loved it so much we came back for another visit in 6 weeks. We have been there so many times the staff are like... More

My kids live in the area, and we stay at the City View when we visit. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is simple, but the assortment of breads, bagels, croissants and cereals provides the fixings for a reasonable start to the day. There is FREE PARKING and the place is convenient to both the LIE and BQE.... More

When I booked this hotel it was part of the Best Western chain. When we arrived after a hair-raising drive into NYC there was what looked like a blue garbage bad over the "best western" part of the hotel sign leaving only the City View Inn. This was not a good start of course as the hotel had lost it's... More

This hotel was very convenient and clean. My room was clean, spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing and the shuttle to the subway station was very convenient. The staff is friendly and the location is excellent for an easy access to Manhattan. I strongly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I wanted to stay near Manhattan without the Manhattan price. Great hotel, rooms are basic but the internet worked great so we could plan our days. Free parking which was also a plus so we could park our rental there when we were not using it. It is a 15 minute walk to the #7 line or... More

I can't give this place more than what it actually is - a two star hotel. LOCATION: First of all, in its defence it is NOT FAR from Manhattan. It's 10 minutes on the subway which is a 10 minute walk away (33rd St - Rawson St) although you have to walk through some empty factories for that. I recommend... More
