I just returned from a stay at the Country Inn & Suites in Queens. I was with my two teenage daughters, our teenage cousin and her Mother. We stayed in a two room suite. The suite had a king size bed on the bedroom and a futon in the living area. When I booked the information page said we could request a roll away, so that was the plan to accommodate all five of us, but when we got there they said it wouldn't fit in our room. They did say we could squeeze it in if we wanted, but it was another $25.00, which I don't recall seeing a notation for a charge when I booked, but that isn't a big deal, it isn't unusual to have to pay for the rollaway. But we decided not to stuff a rollaway in the room. We made it work for the one night, but next time we really will need two rooms. The futon angled toward the floor so it was difficult for two people to sleep on it, and sleeping with my two teenagers in a king sized bed is not something I want to do for more than one night! The room was not the cleanest, I made the mistake of looking under the futon and a kids football was under there, which tells me it hasn't been cleaned under there from the last guests, or perhaps from the last few guests. The closet had just one sheet for the futon and one blanket and one pillow. We called down to get another sheet, blanket and pillow and we were promptly brought up one additional sheet, no mention of another blanket or pillow and I was to tired to ask again. There were a few extra pillows on the king bed, so they used one blanket (scratchy blanket) and one of our pillows and we made due. We would ask not to have this room again, we were near the elevator and you could hear it loudly all night. The bathroom was good size and clean. Our experience with the staff was good, they were kind and pleasant. No issues there. We couldn't check in when we got there and had to wait until the actual check in time, no big deal. I had prepped my kids not to pack one single item that they would be upset about losing. I had read on other posts about things disappearing from rooms, and that they allowed you to store luggage in the lobby prior to check in but it was not secure. That is the truth, it is not secure, but we didn't pack anything we couldn't part with easily, so it was fine for us. Breakfast was meager, and packed, but we got enough to get us through the morning. And there is a Dunkin right near the subway entrance, so I was able to grab a coffee when we headed into the heart of the city. That is the real gem of this place. It was manageable for me to drive to, there is a parking lot nearby that you can pay $15 to park for 24hrs, and the subway is two blocks away and three stops and you are in Times Square. You get what you pay for. We got a great rate at a place that was convenient to accommodate 5 of us on our annual trip to take in a Broadway show. We will likely return to this property again.
