This was a great property located conveniently between two subway stations. It is just about 1 1/2 blocks from the 7 train, which will get you pretty much anywhere you need to go. We were not he 4th floor. The hotel was very quiet and clean. However, I could see how the 1st floor rooms could be very loud as there is a public toilet, exercise room and breakfast area there. The ice machine is in the basement area. I went down there once for ice and thought that it looked a bit depressing. Laundry was piled around and other equipment was in the hall, but it was clean nonetheless.
We were lucky and were able to get a parking spot. However, most of the time the lot was very full and I would recommend expecting a full lot. There is a parking garage just behind the hotel with an entrance beside the 7-11 store. The breakfast area was very small, but we were able to have a seat every day. There was toast, oatmeal, yogurt, muffins, croissants, etc. Not a huge selections, but sufficient. The muffins looked like they were from a local bakery and were very good. As far as the room is concerned, yes, it is very small, but that is to be expected in NYC. It looked recently updated, was clean and very comfortable. The housekeeping staff was excellent and serviced the room efficiently. Our room was on same side of the train and it is true, the train is right outside your window. However, we did not find that it was too loud and it did not keep us awake at night. It was like a rumble of thunder every few minutes. That is all. The area immediately surrounding the neighborhood is not residential and only has a few dining options (diner a and a deli right up the street) and they are only open for lunch. I took a few runs out into the residential areas and felt very safe the whole time. Queens Blvd. is very busy and I felt like it was very safe in the area. Some people talk about having to cross the "spooky bridge" to get to one on the subway stations. It is NOT spooky. It is just a normal bridge with a train above. Many people are walking on it at any given point in time. Overall, the Days Inn Long Island City met or exceeded our expectations. It was in a great location just a few Subway stops from Manhattan. We would definitely stay there again.
