For NYC, this isn't bad. The rooms are cheap (we got it on Priceline for $80/night) and everything is clean and fairly new. The beds are uncomfortable and the shower took some getting used to - it has an odd mechanism for turning the water on. The complimentary breakfast was good, and the free in-room wireless internet and free car parking were nice amenities. We had a small moving truck with us, though, and were told that we could not park the truck in the parking lot.
The worst part of the stay was the hotel staff - they looked in my car and saw that I had a crate on the backseat and insisted that I had a dog in my room and said that there were complaints of a dog. I assured them that I didn't have a dog, but that I had 2 cats in my room which I brought in through the front lobby (there is only one entrance door). Even after telling them this they insisted that I had a dog. The desk clerk brought out the manager who reprimanded me for bringing pets into the hotel. Apparently there is a no pets policy, however, this isn't posted anywhere and wasn't mentioned when I checked in or listed on any of the check-in documents. I found it incredibly rude and invasive of the staff to peer into my car.
The area is OK, there are fast food restaurants and delis within walking distance. The area feels fairly safe for NYC - there are single family homes right behind the hotel. It's in a more residential area which tourists generally don't see when coming to NYC, so some people might not feel safe in the area if you're not used to being in lower-income areas of large cities.
Overall, it's not bad for a night, it's cheap and clean, which is often hard to come by in NYC.
