“Much Cheaper than Manhattan for a short subway ride!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We arrived in at Newark airport and took the train/subway to 39th Avenue subway station which can be accessed from the N or Q lines. This took about an hour. The process is easy to navigate if you are familiar with the London train and tube network. The subway takes about 12 minutes from 39th Avenue. Another option is to go from Queensboro Plaza where you can the 7 train (not sure if quicker to Times Square?).

We arrived before check-in time but the friendly girl on reception said this was fine. The room was great. The view of the Manhattan skyline was spectacular. Two very comfy double beds with loads of pillows. Ideal for crashing out on after a busy day exploring this fantastic city. The free wi-fi was super fast although sometimes it didn't work when we came back late at night. The room got cleaned everyday (new sheets and towels) and this was done to a high standard.

The area was quiet but I never felt in danger at any time. If you are worried then you take a taxi from Manhattan which will costly roughly $15. On the walk to 39th Av. station there is a useful grocery store and a diner (didn't visit this).

The breakfast situation isn't ideal but wasn't a major problem. If you went between the hours of 8-10 then it will be busy and it will be difficult to get a table. Most mornings we took a tray from our room and took the breakfast back to the room with us.

Generally a great hotel if you are looking for a cheaper option which isn't too far from the main attractions.

Room Tip: We were in room 605! Anything high up facing Manhattan will give you a great view.

I visited this hotel June of 2012. I actually flew into New Jersey and caught the train here. The property is close to a subway station. I'd say no longer than a 10 minute walk. Not a lot as far as restaurants and stores around, but the subway station was just a couple stations away from Manhattan and Times Square. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, no complaints there. The room furniture was up to date and they also have flat screen tv's, a microwave, and small fridge. I was very pleased overall. I also saved a ton of money staying here instead of Downtown.

Room was adequate . Clean, refrig, coffee pot . Free breakfast was all you needed. Coffe, eggs, sausage (weekends) bagels rolls toast juice milk 3 cereals. Easy walk to subway . Very quiet. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Not a luxury hotel but we stayed for 5 nites comfortable and safe and were less then 1/2 hour from every tourist site in New York City . We will stay here again next time we come

Hemos escogido este hotel principalmente por el precio, muchisimo mas barato que en Manhattan y con lo básico para una estancia confortable. El hotel está a menos de 10 minutos del metro, que te pone en otros 10 minutos en el centro (Times Square). El desayuno siempre va incluido (es de cortesía), la cama cómoda y grande. La habitación limpia y suficientemente grande como para no agobiarte.
Es verdad que los recepcionistas no te sonríen, pero son serviciales y te ayudan. El sistema de calefacción en la habitación estaba muy alto y si lo bajabas hacia mucho ruido. Hasta pasados varios días no le pillé el truco.
El sitio de desayuno es pequeño, pero si no tienes sitio (algo que evitas si desayunas antes de las 9) puedes optar por esperar 5 minutos, ya que la gente desayuna rápido, o bien subirte el desayuno a tu habitación.
En general, muy satisfechos con la relación calidad-precio. De hecho, estaba lleno de alemanes, y eso significa algo! ;)

We chose this hotel mainly for the price, much cheaper than Manhattan ones, and with the basic things to make your stay comfortable. It is less than 10 min walking from the subway, that drives you to the centre (Times Square) in other 10 min. Breakfast is always included (complimentary), beds are big and comfy enough, and the room is big enough sonas not to make you feel oppressed.
It is true that people in reception don't smile a lot, but they were quite helpful when needed. The heating was too high and when I tried to get it down the conditioner made a horrible noise. I could manage it after a few days.
Breakfast is in the lobby and there is no much room on it (just 4 tables), but if you don't have any place to sit, you can opt to wait for 5 min (people don't stay for long) or bring breakfast to your room. Anyway, you can avoid this problem by coming for breakfast before 9.
In general, we are quite satisfied by the quality-price relation. Actually, it was full of Germans, what must mean something. ;)
A suggestion: nobody seems to use the fitness room, you could transform it into a dining room for breakfast.

My wife and I booked into Ramada Long Island City for a couple nights before our flight back home to Australia. I was mortified to see the size of the room considering it was ADA compliant. I could barely get my wheelchair to the bed, had one near miss and nearly ended up on the floor. Again... another ADA bathroom which had a shower over bath tub.. still don't get that!!! Staff werent so friendly as we would expect. We asked them to book us a wheelchair taxi, they had no idea how to do so.. so we had to transfer me and the wheelchair into one of their contracted private cabs. Next time we are in New York, will spend a little bit more and stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you need a wheelchair accessible room.
