“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

This property is a bit hard to find but once you get there it is pretty good and for the price a great deal. Limited parking . Close to Expressway. Fairly decent breakfast. rooms appear recently updated. I thought the staff was very helpful. If planning to be in Mahatten a lot not the best location but for Brooklyn and east of Manhatten a good deal. Would stay there agan . paid 75 a night on Hotwire for 2 night weekend stay. FOr NYC that is a bargain

We stayed here for 5 nights, overall the hotell standard is OK. The rooms are clean, lots of hot water in the showers etc. short walk(10 min) to subway(40 lowry street) and a great diner (petes diner)

The Subway takes you in to the center of manhattan, grand central/times square.

The breakfast on red roof inn is OK!

friendly staff, and helpfull reception!

Room Tip: if you can choose room, choose one not on the ground floor, it could be a bit noisy when people came...

Booked late for a business trip and had to stay at this motel on Queens Midtown Expressway in LIC. Perfectly clean, double windows closed very well so no noise whatsoever from the highway right outside my ground floor bedroom window, big room, hassle-free checkin and check out. Only drawbacks: the breakfast is very limited (classic motel selection) and the subway stations are 15mins walk away, not very convenient if you don't have a car. The whole place is not new, but everything works that matters (hot water, high water pressure in the shower etc).

I was visiting New York City for a week, and all I had heard about it was how rude the people were. However, my hotel stay, at least, was an extremely pleasant experience. The front-desk attendant, Remi, was very helpful. He was friendly and even helped us park our car. The rooms were clean and nice, and overall my stay was excellent. The hotel is in the suburbs so it's quiet, and it's a quick 8 or 10 block walk to the 7-train. Highly recommended.

Overall a very good place to stay at for a vacation in NYC, not too far away from the metro station, the staff was very helpful too, the area also has a lot of restaurants in the area, which is quiet helpful on a trip like this.

Stayed here on a weekend trip to New York City. Would recommend it. In a quiet residential neighborhood and a 10 min walk to the train. Continental breakfast is good. Parking is limited. Better get there early for both
