“Hidden Gem in LIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The hotel sits in a neighborhood on the up-swing, like the rest of LIC. The Queens Plaza 'hood will see the same revitalization that changed the Vernon-Jackson area so dramatically over the past decade. ALL good. I give the hotel all top 4s and 5s. It's showing a little wear, but the hard-working staff of competent young immigrants keeps it clean and humming. We had trouble with the small safe in the closet. They came back 3x in quick response till they finally got it working. When we went out at noon for 15 mins, we told the desk staff that the cleaning people could have the room. When we returned, the room was completely made-over. You don't get that in a fancy Manhattan hotel. Pannini Shop on the corner has one of the fastest and best short-order cooks in the city. There are 2 convenient Subway Lines, and busses too. The 7 train is only 1.5 short LIC blocks away. Caution for older folk. There is no alternative to the mean steps you need to climb for the Queensboro Plaza Station. Another 1.5 blocks away is the Queens Plaza (underground) station, complete with nice elevators. The ride into Manhattan is ez and short no matter where you go. But don't forget 'the hood'. LIC has hidden treasurers (like MOMA @ PS1 and the world-class dining room there) And the wonders of Old World Poland (called Greenpoint) are only a short bus-ride away. By bus you can see where you want to get off. Overall, a Hidden Gem...and the Price is Right! (May, '13).

Room Tip: First floor rooms are actually half-basement; thereby quiet & convenient.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This motel is a great find if you are seeking affordable accommodations while visiting NYC. The rooms and bathrooms are small, but the property is clean, comfortable, and exceptionally well managed. The neighborhood is rather seedy--our room overlooked a salvage yard, and we were entertained by three drunks' arguing down on the street one morning. But that's the charm of Queens. The subway is one block away, and the line goes directly to Grand Central and then to Times Square. The breakfast is good, but the seating is limited.

Room Tip: Bring a wind machine to soften the street noise.

Hotel was clean, the front desk staff very helpful and I enjoyed the stay. The breakfast area is on the small side, but the selection was good - and ready about 10 minutes early. The neighborhood is a little sketchy, but it looks to be up and coming. There was a bunch of trash on the street and there were some men camping out to apply for jobs across the street. It is really convenient to the subways and it is less than 10 minutes to Grand Central. Overall, I would stay again.

Room Tip: It can be a bit noisy, so request a room on the upper floor.
