Located near the highway this hotel was easy to find with our rental. We dropped our luggage, drove the car to LaGuardia and grabbed a taxi back to the hotel (around 20 dollar, tip included).
The rooms are not big, but large enough for just the 2 of us. When you have more than 2 suitcases, the rooms might be too small. Everything was clean!
While the breakfast itself is good (waffles, toast, muffins, cereal, yogurt, etc.) the room is way to small. There are only seats for about 20-30 persons.
The hotel is located 10 minutes walking from the 44st Lowery St. metro (Line 7), which will take you to Manhattan in around 10-15 minutes. We always felt safe while walking from/to the metro. If you prefer to take a taxi, the staff can arrange a taxi for you.
Overall, this hotel offers good value for your money. It's a bit further from all Manhattan-based attractions, but it's much better for your budget.
