Long Island and Long Island City are two very different locations. "Long Island" is used to refer to suburban counties east of New York City. Long Island City is a Queens neighborhood right across the East River from Manhattan.

Although it's easier to get to LIC from JFK Airport, it's not that hard from Newark Airport. You take the Newark Airport AirTrain from your terminal to the Newark Airport rail station. You then take a New Jersey Transit commuter train to New York Penn Station. From there you'd take the subway to your hotel.

You've chosen a hotel which is not that near the subway, so you might want to reconsider this. In any event, from Penn Station you'd take a Jamaica-bound E train to Court Square. Exit toward the rear of the train and you're a few blocks from the hotel.

If you're gong from Newark Airport to the Country Inn and Suites, then the directions above will work. Just stay on the E train one more station to Queens Plaza.
