We stayed here for 3 nights this past weekend and were generally happy with our choice. The hotel is indeed in an out-of-the-way area but since we had a car we weren't really all that concerned about the location. And, since we were primarily visiting places in Connecticut, Queens and Long Island for the weekend this turned out to be a good mid-point selection.
The check-in staff was friendly and clearly explained the shuttle options to us when we arrived. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the free internet access was a welcome amenity. This hotel cost significantly less than the Courtyard near LaGuardia and the Sheraton closer to the subway and not having to pay for internet access or breakfast was a plus.
Unfortunately, breakfast was less than satisfying. The waffle maker was out of order, they ran out of bananas early in the weekend and didn't get any more until we left and the other offerings were okay but not stellar - dry cereal, tiny muffins, some danish, donuts and bagels. The breakfast sandwiches are a heart attack on a plate so I wouldn't recommend them unless your cholesterol is extremely low. They also offered hard boiled eggs but I don't eat eggs so that left very little to eat in the morning. The orange juice was good and the staff was friendly.
The computer station and printer in the breakfast room also came in handy.
The parking is free - another thing that usually costs extra at other area hotels - but the parking lot is small. Street parking in the area was plentiful though and relatively safe (I always try to park under a street lamp and never ever leave anything in the car overnight.)
Since we didn't plan to go into "the city" I can't comment on how long it would take to get there but having been a former long distance commuter I know that what you sacrifice in time you make up for in savings so you have to be prepared to make a trade-off when you visit New York on a budget.
