“Good value for money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We stayed at this hotel in October 2011 for 2 nights. We were looking for an "inexpensive" (for NYC standards) hotel in NYC and found this Red Roof Inn in Flushing, Queens. Very good value for New York, large rooms, great view, nice staff, the location is OK, not too far from the Subway station that takes you into Manhattan (it's a half hour ride though!) Overall, no complaints whatsoever!

The rooms clearly aren't cleaned well: there was dirt and dust on the desk, and I was afraid to look too closely at anything else! The electricity in my room kept going off, which meant the a/c kept going off as well. I had to change rooms 3 times because of their electrical problems and they didn't even cut me a break on the room charge.
Worst hotel I've ever stayed in, and I had pretty low expectations.

Excellent location to everywhere, 45 min subway to Time Square, walk distance to China town with so many authentic Chinese restaurants. Parking is across the street with low rate $15/day, hotel is clean, the facility is a typical motel.

Travelled with son for one overnight stay before flying overseas. We arrived at 11 PM from LaGuardia. Taxi driver did not know location of this hotel but we had the address and a map. Cost was about $20US for about a 15 minute ride.

No airport shuttle available to the hotel. But, the hotel provides a convenient, flat rate taxi from the hotel to JFK for $22US or to LaGuardia. It is a Chinese operated taxi but the driver speaks English. (I speak Chinese so had no problem).

PROS: Got reduced room rate at senior's rate (aged 50 and up). This is a basic hotel located in Chinatown, but quiet, clean and comfortable and popular with Asians (judging from guests in the breakfast room). Our room, with two full (double), pillow top beds was spacious - lots of room for luggage. Room looked just like hotel photos. So, I do not understand the previous reviews about small rooms (maybe a one-bed room?). Flooring is wood with area rug around beds.

You must insert room card to get "power." This process is very common in hotels throughout Europe and Asia to save energy. So, room may be hot when you return.

Air conditioning worked well. Free WIFI slow but OK. Free local and free US long distance calls a real bonus. Microwave and small in-room fridge also good (and clean).

Breakfast is basic continental with boiled eggs, and some items had "run out" by 9 AM. Breakfast room is very bare bones, clean, no decor - so just eat and run.

Staff stored our bags in a spare room adjacent to the check-in desk at no charge. We took the #7 metro/subway (or called "train") into Manhattan to Grand Central Station. The last stop on the line is Times Square. The walk to the metro is 10 minutes and the trip took about 45 minutes. Train was very packed even during non peak periods. The area is quite safe during daytime. Prince Street from front door of hotel looks commercial - warehouses and parking lot across street.

CONS: Too far to Manhattan and tourist attractions. We stayed at the Red Roof Inn, Manhattan on a previous visit. (Very good). That location is more convenient for sightseeing but at a higher price.

Lobby does not look like photo. There is no real lobby and staff at check in are quite casual but helpful and their English is good. There is no "concierge" but staff can provide good information for getting around.

Our room did not have a balcony but we did have a view of Manhattan and LaGuardia airport.

Nice clean motel. Good rates, nice staff, rooms are great, doesn't take but a few minutes to cool the room down didn't figure out how to control the thermostat but just push the small the on the plug to turn it off for a little while. No big deal. Close to CitiField for the ball games and the 7 train to Time Square. We will definately be staying there for our next trip to see a ball game.

rriflushing, Manager at Red Roof Inn Flushing, responded to this review, October 3, 2011
Hello HalfPiny6 Guest!

Thank you for the great comments you made about our Red Roof Inn in Flushing, NY! We are very proud of our front desk team and also our housekeeping staff. We are very glad you had a very enjoyable stay here. Our hotel is still very brand new, we opened just in the fall of 2010 and as you know very close to the Flushing, NY Chinatown.

I'm glad you were pleased with the rates we offered. For a big city and great location, we definately want to focus on great value for our customers here at Red Roof Inn.

I am sorry you experienced problems with the thermostat system in the room. It's somewhat new technology along with our Go Green Initiative of energy saving features in the room. My staff would be glad to show you all the neat operational features of your room when you come back and see us again.

I know you came to see us for the ball game at Citi Field, in fact, I hope you were able to enjoy the great view of the ballpark from your room! The holidays are coming up in NYC, I hope you and yours will find the chance to come visit again in the near future. We've recently expanded our continental breakfast selections.

Thank you again for your kind words.

Regards,

Jean Yuan, Assistant Manager
Red Roof Inn Flushing, NY

We had to make a last minute reservation on the night prior to the marathon and did not know what to expect when we called the Red Roof Inn. All of the reasonable hotels were sold out, so we didn't think we'd be able to get a room for the night since the Red Roof offers low price rooms. Lucky for us, the lady on the phone was friendly and helpful and we were able to reserve a room within minutes. Check-in was swift. The room we stayed in was small but clean, cozy and modern. The bathroom was excellent and had a great shower. The view from our seventh floor window was a nice touch as well. I would definitely stay at the Red Roof Inn -- Flushing again.

The good news is: This is about the cheapest advertised price brand name hotel that you can find in the area via web aggregators. It is in a safe neighborhood with lots of cheap good Asian food nearby. It is four short blocks from the end of the number 7 train which goes to Times Square. The desk staff is gracious. This is a new building and the rooms are very clean. As a result, this property is free from the bedbug epidemic in older, more central properties. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and many opportunities for cheap massage are nearby. From my room (704) I had a very nice view of the city.

The bad news: Hotels.com advertised a complementary shuttle from LGA. I see that they already have taken that notice down. It is only a $15 cab ride, but I waited in line for 80 minutes to get that cab. The wireless is free but profoundly unreliable; I had to steal from someone nearby. That view? Well it will cost you, because you have no control over the AC and the afternoon will raise the heat well over 110 degrees. If you take your key out of the in-room slot, the AC goes off. If you leave it in while you are out, housekeeping will take it out for you. It takes a good six hours to cool the room down, and then you cannot turn the AC off. There are no extra blankets.

Also, be aware that Hotels.com will do a bait and switch on the price. I ended up paying $50 per night higher than the advertised fee.
