I spend approximately 10-15 nights per month in motel rooms and about half of those are in the LGA area. This was my first time trying this hotel as I usually prefer to stay with 'name brand chains.' However given the price of $109 per night, I thought I couldn't go wrong.
I seldom leave reviews but in this case felt that I needed to. As most other reviewers have mentioned, the staff here are very friendly and I have no concerns about them at all.
The rooms are very spacious, the lobby was very nice, bathroom had high quality Rusk products and the housekeeping staff were excellent.
However, the rooms are in desparate need of renovations. My room had paint/wallpaper peeling off the walls and some moldy spots in the bathroom. I'm 5'10 and the shower head was so low that I had to arch my back to the point of discomfort and pain in order to get my head under the stream of water. My friend who was in an adjoining room and is 5'6 was just able to comfortably stand under the shower head herself. I also did not have consistent water temperature during any of my 6 showers. The water kept changing from where I set it to freezing cold to scalding hot, etc. Again, my friend had the same problem in her room. Our rooms were non-smoking but I could definitely smell the stale smoke when I enterred my room. The elevators were slow and beat up including some graffitti inside them and our internet connection was very slow. It did get faster on my last night here but the first 2 days were brutal. I started to load just an ordinary Google search page and it was taking so long I was able to eat my dinner while waiting for it to load. This was also typical in my friends room. The first night we were here, we gave up on trying to do anything on the computer as it was just taking too long.
I can't comment on the area too much as I didn't get out of my room a whole lot but I do know it's great proximity to LGA (right across the street) and has a shuttle service with extended hours. My hotel faces the street and airport and although I could hear the highway and airport traffic, it wasn't loud enough to interfere with my sleep at all.
The restaurant has a limited selection for both room service and to sit down there and eat and the food was not that good. Again, the wait staff were very nice though.
