“Good location but old funky rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The hotel is ideally located close to the subway but the rooms are outdated. We had a jacuzzi that was INSIDE the room not the bathroom so all of the other room furniture besides the bed was pushed up against the wall. There were no luggage racks at all (we asked) and we could not open the dresser drawers because the chair was pushed up next to the dresser. The water in our bathroom bathtub ran all the time and the refrigerator froze everything. One night, they didn't leave us any towels and we almost had to fight to get them. The Manager? didn't believe us and insisted on "checking" our room for them! The breakfast is poor. We were in the basement and had to climb up on a chair to adjust the heater. The room was quieter than our friends, whose room was on the noisy street. The coffee, both in the room and in the dining room, was the worst I have ever drank.

The stole almost $200 from my credit card stating that I have booked a room and did not make check in! There is no register of this reservation anywhere, even in Expedia where the manager told me the booking came from. PROTECT YOUR MONEY AND DO NOT STAY AT THIS PLACE!

We had a positive experience. Room was nice and big. Bathroom was good. Breakfast was okayish. It is couple of blocks away from subway station and hence just 15-20 minutes from Times Square, which is great. Since most other hotels are expensive, this is a good budget option.

I booked this Hotel for three night but cancelled two nights the day I checked in... Front staff was way too unprofessional and the room was terrible. Bed shirt was dirty and when we requested to change it, the staff said, it should be clean enough and he has not come to the room.!
I would never stay in any hotel with named La Quinta in my life.
I strongly not recommend any family to stay here if you would like to enjoy NY.

Room Tip: Better not staying here

We spent n. 3 nights at the hotel during October 2013. The position is quite good, very closed to the subway n. 7 (15 minutes to Times Square) and the room was big enough, quite clean, and also the bathroom was OK.
Breakfast was minimal but OK.
I would like to point out the total lack of professionality and the unfairness of the staff at the reception and the misleading information they gave us.
As we booked through Agoda and we were missing the first night, we asked Agowa about the possibility to shift the reservation made for the first night to a following one.
Agoda sent immediately an E-Mail to the hotel with our request (now I have a copy of the mail !!!!) and when we arrived at the hotel the man at the reception told us that they didn't receive any E-Mail from Agoda with our request.
As a consequence we were obliged to book another night spending other 140 dollars.
Now that we are back from our trip I know that, not only did they receive the mail sent by Agoda, but they also replied them via E-mail giving a negative answer.
I tried several times to ask for clarifications sending E-Mails to the hotel address but up to now we didn't receive any answer from them !!
They behaviour has been completely unfair and faithless and I know that probably I will never receive an answer from them.
In conclusion, good position, quite good room, but a very bad opinion of the staff at the reception.

I've stayed here before, even about 8 years ago when it first opened. I liked it at first, but shortly after room cleanliness and maintenance became a problem. But it looks as though that problem has been addressed, though my bath sink drain filled up pretty quickly and ebbed out quite slowly. If you stay here what you'll get is a conventional motel room in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Queens with both on-site and adjacent street parking. Because the location is directly along the 7 train line, a downside is that there is constant noise from the passing trains. This might affect light sleepers late at night. The room was ordinary motel style, with a small fridge and coffee maker. I was on the 3rd floor and had a view of McDonald's. Beware, several rooms are in the basement with a view of the sidewalk. If you have special toiletries that you like, bring them because the bath amenities are few. I did like the morning breakfast, though, and Queens Boulevard going east for about 8 blocks has a wide variety of eating places and grocers, including a 24/7 diner only 2 streets away. MTA train entrances/exits are both several blocks east and west of the motel and a bus to Madison Square Garden (Q32) stops across the boulevard.

Room Tip: Don't take a basement room.

We stayed while visiting NYC, and were extremely pleased! It was clean with good beds. Light breakfast was included. We bought the metro card and went everywhere. Subway stop is real close. The staff we found were extremely helpful!!! Housekeepers were real nice too! There was a computer room there. Good food choices to come back to in the evening after the days in Manhattan. All for well under 100. a night!
