This is a budget hotel located in a Queens neighborhood of other budget and mid-priced lodgings across the bridge from Manhattan. And I found it neither better or worse than the others at which I have stayed in the past. Maybe this hotel has a bigger lobby than the others and on-site security is more visible, but the rooms are basic as are the in-room amenities. I did have a small fridge, coffee maker, and safe in my room. And there was a breakfast bar on the mezzanine which crowded near the closing hour of 9:30. But the Wi-Fi was poor and someone must have monkeyed with the business center computers because the search engines were set for Italy. When I checked it, it took quite a while to get an extra blanket (8 hours). Also, the fridge was not plugged in and I had to move the dresser to get to the wall sockets. One day my room wasn't cleaned until 5PM (I had to ask). Neither the front desk personnel nor the housekeepers seemed to care much. I did not have a vehicle but, if you do, there is some parking and you can drive a short distance to the shops and restaurants in Sunnyside and Astoria. Otherwise, shopping by the hotel is a very bleak and surreal experience. But there is a 24 hour convenience store on the corner and 24/7 police security cameras will photograph you coming and going to the nearby subway.
