“Good choice when in NYC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The La Quinta on Queens Blvd. is easy to find and very convenient to all NYC points due to it's close location to the 7 train. Room was clean and quiet. Parking of course is very limited but there is at least some parking.Price is very good when you compare to other NYC hotels.The only oddity is that the elevator does not go to the ground floor. In order to get your bags to the elevator, which starts on the 2nd floor, you must use a small service elevator(just large enough for bags) for getting the bags to the 2nd floor and then the main passenger elevator.Overall a good choice for any NYC stay.

We had this hotel booked for over 6 months. When we arrived, we were told that our credit card was declined. They then made us move to another hotel. When I was able to contact my credit card company I found out that the reason it was declined was due to a mistake of having the wrong expiration date. I was also told that they only tried to run the card once! They never tried to call me to fix the problem. Once the card was declined, they cancelled my reservation! Stay away from this hotel! Very poor customer service!

If you're looking for a cheap stay while in New York this might be right up your street! The hotel is fine, near the subway (7) which is handy for the city. Our air-con unit had to be replaced after it packed up, and the window wouldn't open. We asked a few times to have this sorted but the staff seemed a little reluctant, so after the window failed to open the second time we left it.

Worth a stay though if you're on a budget!

Room Tip: Ask for a city view, otherwise you'll be overlooked McDonald's or the parking lot!

The room cost me 15,000 points plus $60 per night - exorbitant! At one time my below street level room must have been a decent size. They then tiled half the floor and put in a Jacuzzi style tub, making the room quite small. Besides the extremely comfortable bed, the room had a TV (not flat screen), a desk, wooden wardrobe, small refrigerator , 3 drawers, 2 night stands and an upholstered chair. The drawers would not open because the chair was in the way. The chair was needed to stand on to reach the A/C controls- the A/C was placed in the sliver of window above ground - above my head.
I checked in late on a Thursday night and fell into bed at once. Always when I check into a La Quinta I am given a welcome package with a bottle of water and some nibblies. Not here. Friday morning I go to take a shower and discover I have no wash cloths. That day and every other morning -3 more- I had to request washcloths. They were never supplied. Then I discovered neither the refrigerator or electrical outlet in bathroom were working. They fixed the fridge which had no controls and it froze anything I put into it, but there was still no working outlet in the bathroom. There was no clock and no phone by the bed. Also, being below ground the room was dark and the desk had no lamp. They did manage to find one for me.
Usually, La Quintas have a sign in the room saying if you forgot to pack something come to the front desk for it. I popped a button and had forgotten to pack a needle and thread. When I asked at the desk for one, I was told there was a dollar store a couple of blocks away.
I got a parking permit from them showing I was a guest at the hotel and parked in a designated handicapped spot. Someone without such a pass continually parked illegally blocking me in. When I asked the clerk if he knew whose car it was, he looked out at it and commented they didn't have a permit to park on hotel property, but he was unable to do anything about it. I asked for paper to write a note I was going to place on the car. After I wrote it, the clerk said I would have to sign it so he wouldn't be blamed.
On my last morning, Monday, I asked about printing my boarding pass. I was told "we have computers but no printers". I guess it was too much to expect them to print it behind the desk as any hotel which cared about its guests would.
Without a doubt this was the worst hotel service I have ever encountered and I travel extensively. I have complained to corporate headquarters and suggested they revoke the franchise agreement which is putting such a blot on their fine name.

Room Tip: Only way to get a good room is to stay elsewhere.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three reasons: the hotel is cheaper than hotels in Manhattan, the hotel is a 20-minute subway ride to Time Square, and we were going to use our La Quinta points. Sadly, we did not get to use our La Quinta points on this hotel for a free night. The hotel is privately own with the La Quinta name and allocate a limited number of rooms that can be used with La Quinta points. The room serves it purpose. It was clean. The complimentary breakfast could be better. The breakfast room needs more tables. The overall rating is average because the hotel is a typical hotel chain in the United States.

First they tried to put us in a room that was already occupied, then they put us in the basement. The room was quite humid and looked like mold on the carpet. Perhaps this is what you get for $159 close the the big apple, but we will never stay at one of these hotels again.

Overall room was okay except only sheer drapes on the windows allowing bright morning light in the room..not good if you want to sleep in late or keep night lights out of room. Also lack of privacy. Close to subway..but the noise level a bit much. Pretty clean though I must say. No printer available for guests to print airline tickets was a negative for me had to go to an internet café. Staff uncaring, no greeting when entering a property. It is convenient to Manhattan. I would not stay here again.
