“Good hotel, reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is a very reasonably priced hotel with good sized clean rooms & friendly staff. Our room had a large TV and refridgerator.

The location is quiet and next to the No. 7 (Local) subway - use either 33rd Street or 40th Street. There is a shop in the garage next door & a diner and takeaway close by.

We will definately use this hotel again.

This place did have in its favor the price, a good continental breakfast and are very close to a Subway stop. And those are about the only good things I can say about the place.
We are still waiting on an extra pillow since they went with a mini version of a pillow. We calling to make the reservation and requesting a roll away cot, calling to confirm the reservation we requested a roll away cot, called day of the reservation to say we’d check in late we requested a roll away cot; when we checked in we did not get a roll away cot. The operators/staff will talk to each other in a foreign language right in front of you, when they both speak English.
Over all, I would never recommend this place to anyone. I’d suggest finding another motel.

Room Tip: Choose one somewhere else.

We stayed for 6 nights and it was a great choice. Just two blocks from the "7" subway, 15 minutes ride to Manhattan/Times Square. The room was nice, had a good sleep with almost no street noise. Breakfast was good, the wi-fi connection was also good, and the staff is very polite and helpful. I would recommend it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Our room was on the side of the hotel, away from Queens Blvd., and on the first level above street level. I didn't hear any street noise during the night.

The room was clean and adequately equipped.

The curtains that we could close did not block as much light as I prefer. The decorative drapes that simply hang down at the side of the window were blackout drapes, so we jerry-rigged them (using a keyring and the pocket-hook of a pen) to meet in the middle of the window and block out most of the light. If you are concerned about it being very dark when you sleep, I recommend bringing some safety pins to do the same. It was quite dark and restful then.

Breakfast ends at 10 on the dot, and we missed it. (Hey, it was dark in the room.) The coffeemaker in the room didn't work all that well. We got coffee and breakfast at Pete's Diner a block away.

It isn't glamorous. But the room was clean, adequate, relatively convenient, and it didn't break the bank.

Location is good and close to subway. Staff are polite & helpful. Room was acceptable standard, clean and quiet on 4th floor. Breakfast was perfectly adequate although not always enough seats. Free wifi was useful. Only criticism was the rubbish on tv but I guess that was not the fault of the hotel. Maybe I was lucky but I really don't have any complaints.

Yes, I'm young and I have no money. The fact is this hotel is just 15 minutes away from Manhattan by train, at half of the price of a Manhattan one. As a young traveller, I like to explore too. Just loved the freedom to explore Queens also.

The only 2 cons of this hotel are the worst wi-fi connection i've ever got in a hotel and the very very poor breakfast.

But I would definitely stay there again.

This "hotel" was saved a one star review because as far as I can see, there were no hookers, no drug dealers, and it wasn't overwhelmingly dirty. However, the place did feature very uncomfortable beds, substandard TV offerings, a shower that not only seemed next to impossible to use, but also leaked from the ceiling. I know its NYC, but this is Queens, and the place is $190 a night. The breakfast the next day was putrid and made me feel sick to my stomach. It is conveniently located on the MTA though.

Room Tip: check to see if your shower's ceiling leaks, not pleasant to wake up to!
