I stayed at the Best Western Hotel for a week in December with my spouse. I really enjoyed my trip in New York.
Hotel was GREAT! Location is excellent for travelers (and for everyone, in fact). Only a few hundred meters to the subway and 10-15 minutes to Manhattan. I highly recommend the MetroCard. It's only 29 $/week and you can use it unlimitedly. Very handy!
The area near the hotel is okay: apartment buildings and a few shops (e.g. Subway and a little grocery shop, where you can buy beverages, stamps, bread rolls, candy...). Traffic can be a bit noisy at night, but I didn't mind.
Hotel is nice and clean. Some guests next door very quite the party animals and were noisy. (=Walls are thin. Get earplugs if you can't handle noise.)
Breakfast was decent: toast, bagels, cereal, donuts, apples, bananas, coffee, tea, yogurt etc. I liked it! Breakfast area can get crowded around 8-10 a.m. so if you want a place to sit while eating, come early!
If you are looking for a good hotel near everything, book this one! :)
