Visit in late January 2012 for one night after visiting friends in CT.
Checked in at around 7:30pm and we were ready to take subway and explore Manhattan by 8.
Subway is just minutes away. A silent neighborhood and first impression was a little on the scary side may be it's dark. Having said that it' so quiet that after walking on the street for a while we didn't feel as bad. A few convenience stores along 21st leading to the subway open til late for water and stuff are always the welcomed found.
Take the F line and you are just few stations from heart of Manhattan.
Room is relatively big consider it's in NYC. Modern deco and quite clean with a view of the Queensboro bridge and Manhattan in the back drop. Free continental breakfast is common but still a plus.
Staffs were helpful with direction, checking in and taking care of the luggage after checkout ( a buck per piece though)
In general it's a satisfactory stay with budget in mind - easy for subway ride and LaGuardia is also close with just a 15mins taxi ride.
You got what you pay for - and much more for this one
