I like the location. I enjoy walking the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan. It's next to a gas station with a pretty good deli selection. But, I've stayed here for years, and it seems like the hotel has gone downhill.
Where to start? Make sure that you get a room outside of the 1st floor near the breakfast room, where I was stuck as a Gold elite for whatever reason, it's very loud in the morning with people talking in the hallways. They should have a quiet rule with a set up like this.
The wifi is extremely slow at times, and I've had this issue during my last couple of stays. Even this has clearly not been upgraded.
The beds are comfortable and the rooms are OK, but amenities wise this is lacking for a Country Inn. The breakfast room is always very warm (uncomfortable) and the selection isn't that great. It's crowded and takes a long time.
There are simple improvements that can be made, such as breakfast, that management doesn't seem to be making. This place is just not on par with Country Inns across the country.
That being said, if booked far enough in advance, this hotel does offer more decent rates compared to others in the area. It's NY so it's never going to be cheap, but it's unbeatable if you aren't looking to spend a lot of money.
Simple improvements like making the breakfast room a little bit more comfortable and guest-friendly, and improving the selection of food and coffee, would go a long way- as well as some acknowledgement of elite status.
