We were very thrilled with our room and our overall experience. The room was very large, clean, nicely heated and many appliance extras! The location was great, with beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline nearby. We slept so comfortably in our room, it was hard for us to wake up by check-out time at noon!!!

Best Western City View in LIC is a great place to stay. If you have business in Manhattan or are sight seeing, City View is a short subway ride away. If you are driving to the NY aria you can park on City View property. Very good deal.

I had an east coast tour and stayed here for New Years Eve and Day. It smelled bad. Beds were uncomfortable. Towels were dirty as though they were used to wipe blood. It was next to a cemetery. I will never go there again.

Let me start by saying that the hotel is about a 20 minute cab ride from Penn Station as that is where we came into when we arrived. A cab ride to the hotel should cost you around $20-$25. Do not listen to the cabbies that are trying to scam you. One guy said it would be a $60 cab... More

Visited this hotel for furneral services nearby. I was pleasantly surprised with the free parking and the hotel was located only 1.5 miles away from service. As we checked in they just put out hot chocolate chip cookies and it was a nice afternoon treat with their in-room coffee they offered. The room was tidy and clean and its everything... More

The hotel is across the street of a huge cemetery so it's not preferable for most Asians (maybe some other cultures would mind too). The biggest pros: good, complimentary breakfast; free shuttle to the closest subway station (they are reluctant to offer it though); free parking and not far from Manhattan. The biggest cons: not so clean from outside to... More

The place is a good one to stay for business. Curteous staff, ride to subway and fair price for NY standard. However, you may experience cigarette or marijuana smell in the hallways that may comes into the room at times. The hotel is not new, but they have worked on it to keep it up. The elevator is an old... More

The hotel is clean and the staffers do their job. I was pleased with what I got for the price I paid. After 10PM you have to pay $10 for a ride to the train station. Taxi to LGA is $25 and you get there in 15min or less without traffic

Stay was good for myself and family! Just two suggestions, bed too soft and even though breakfast was great I would suggest some kind of breakfast meat bacon/sausage but overall stay was wonderful! If you are looking for a short stay, economical hotel by all means Best Western at City View Inn is wonderful!

The staff of a property is often what defines that property, and Bibi and her family do an INCREDIBLE job catering to the needs of guests. We made several specific requests that were honored without any trouble. We were upgraded to a room with a Jacuzzi when Bibi found out we were there to run the marathon. We were allowed... More
