As a poor recent grad, I was looking for a cheap place to visit some people in Manhattan. At ~130$/night w/ tax, this hotel was perfect money-wise. Its a small place, and you have to understand what to expect with a Howard Johnsons. But the room was nice and clean, very comfortable beds, cable TV w/ DVD player included. Plus, the free continental breakfast and free WIFI just makes the value so good, especially if you're trying to save money.
A block away is the last stop of the 7 train, which goes direct to Grand Central and Times Square. So, its maybe a half an hour by train into the heart of Manhattan. Convenience wise, its a no brainer. No need for paying cab fares here.
Its next to Laguardia, and thankfully I am a heavy sleeper so the sound of planes didn't drive me insane, but that might be a problem for some. Of course there's more planes during the day, but I was out and about during the daylight hours so that was a non-issue.
And lastly, yes its in Queens Chinatown, and yes there are a lot of Asians. But honestly, I can't think of an excuse other than racism for those people who complain about the number of Asians.
Its a great hotel if you know what to expect. This isn't the "10th Wedding Anniversary with your wife" hotel, this is the "I'm dirt broke and need a comfortable place with great value in a convenient location." For that, I couldn't suggest it more.
