“One of the best hotel for the price near Manhattan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Stayed at the Comfort Inn Long Island City for 9 days. This is a very good hotel. Heres a few reasons you should consider this hotel for

1) Location, Location, Location: For the price ($154 including tax for 3 ppl, 2 twin bed, would be around $130 or so for 2), you just cant beat the location, one stop to Manhattan. It is just a block away, 2 min walk to the Queensboro station providing 7, N and Q train access to Manhattan and rest of queens. Area is safe. There's a nice food place around the corner, you get all sorts of options for breakfast/lunch/dinner.

2) Clean hotel. In fact very clean hotel. No problem what so ever. Everything works. Rooms properly cleaned daily.

3) Free breakfast. Its not grand, but hey its free and very decent breakfast so no complaints here. You get apple/orange juice, tea/coffee, egg, bread, croissants, waffles, assorted donuts, yogurt, cereals. Eat all you like.

4) Business center is great, check your mails, get your documents printed without any extra cost. Btw, free Wifi in all rooms.

5) Extremely nice and helpful front desk people. They will go out of their way to assist you.

Over all a great hotel to stay near Manhattan without breaking your bank.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors.

Hotel held over $400, then they denied that the charges were theirs even though it clearly stated it was comfort inn. it took over 24hours to release but it finally cleared. The bed was uncomfortable but the room was ok. The view was of a trash dump and a high rise being built. The view of the sky line from the roof was awesome though. It was also cheaper than staying in Manhattan and the subway was just a block away.

The hotel is nothing special, but the location is terrific for getting into Manhattan either on East or West sides. The staff is friendly and helpful. Also, on weekend it is easy to park on the street, saving on the expense of parking. The neighborhood is industrial and lacking amenities such as restaurants or grocery store. But, I would definitely return. Its hard to beat the price for a comfortable place to stay.

This hotel is a reasonably priced, close to Manhattan hotel that is a very short walk from the subway. The hotel was clean; the rooms were modern and comfortable. The bed was above average. Granite counters in the bathroom and a shower with good water pressure. Large flat screen TV. Breakfast is about what one would expect for the price, but the bakery items were a step above average.
The neighborhood has been changing into more residential area which will continue to improve it over time. A gas station with hot food is next door. The nearby Chinese and Mexican restaurants are less than ideal in appearance, but the food was very good at both. The Mexican restaurant’s staff was fun and helpful and the items on the menu went well beyond Mexican food. Both restaurants are about two blocks away toward the plaza. Dunkin Donuts is a few doors down. Just across the plaza a new Checkers hamburger restaurant about to open. There is a Chase Bank branch with a very helpful staff, and an ATM with a security guard.

Comfort inn - lic crescent rd.

Location: great location ,right off the 7 and 1min walk from queens plaza subway.

Food: good selection little places to eat, a few pizza spots,chinese, subway, taso deli

Room: one king suite
Large room, clean bathroom , flatscreen

Cons:
Hotel seems a bit older. The room smelled like pee and hallways small. Right next to subway and backs to an alley, so you can hear your neighbors the people yelling in the streets too.

Price: The regular rates for this hotel are average. I would book here again if needed.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

I've stayed here before when I traveled solo. I used priceline and when I arrived, everything was fine.

This trip, not so. I priceline (name your own price) all the time and have never had any problems with room requests unless the hotel is packed. Comfort Inn was not fully booked. When I requested 2 beds, the man at the front desk snidely said that since I paid such a low rate, I would have to 'up grade' to 2 beds to the tune of $40/night. He was quite nasty about it as well. Had he had a better attitude, I probably would have taken it better. He just seemed like an unpleasant fellow. I ended up sleeping between my 15 year old son and my fiance. That was pleasant but it's the chance of NYOP priceline. **The other front desk guy was quite friendly and pleasant.

We then had to go down to get towels and cups since there weren't nearly enough towels (even for 2 people). The hallway smelled like old, musty dog and the room wasn't much better.

I can't complain about the view or the subway. We weren't there for the view but we did appreciate the close proximity of the subway.

The breakfast was pretty good with plenty to chose from considering it's free and it's pretty much exactly what you expect from a continental breakfast.

The proximity to Queens Plaza subway station is great. You couldn't get much closer. The neighborhood has always been fine for me but is a bit desolate at night so even though I lived in NYC for many years, I still walk with a purpose when coming back late.

Overall, it was a fine enough hotel the first time but crap the second.

I might stay again if the bed preference wasn't an issue. Although, by the time we paid for the 3 of us to get to and from the city, we should have just paid the extra to stay in the city.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad to know that you are a repeat customer, and would love have you stay with us again.
When it comes to booking rooms through Priceline, you have the option to select the room type you would like, or bid for a room. When you bid, Priceline will take the lowest priced room, which happens to be a single bed room. If you need to make the change to a higher priced room, then a fee will apply.
Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience you encountered at check-in. We hope that you find it to be an isolated incident.

I was two 1/2 blocks from the metro, so I feel, even in the later evening hours, as long as I walk with a purpose, I can probably make it to the hotel unscathed. The hotel pictures show a treadmill. The front desk said "we have no treadmill" and low and behold, there was empty floor space where a treadmill once was. Breakfast wasn't bad. There was some lite yogurt and hard boiled egg for protein. Overall not bad for the price to sleep and have breakfast.

Room Tip: Queen beds are on the opposite side of the subway.
