“good hotel, surprising for the neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I've stayed here several times, it's a little oasis of a nice hotel in a non-so-fancy neighborhood. But it's three blocks from the subway on a brightly lit street and the rooms are clean and really nice. The price is usually the best I see in NYC.

In fairness the first couple of days of my families 1 week stay were OK. The hotel is basic, Clean room-Most Days, Breakfast-nothing fancy basic cereal, bagels and donuts. The problem is the service in this hotel and the lack of caring for the guests. We were never given enough towels. We were 3 people and were left towels for 1 or 2 everyday. We always ahd to go downstairs for more.
One day after spending the entire day in a very hot NYC we came back to our room to find the window wide open. We never unlocked the window so obviously someone form the hotel opened it.It was so hot in the room that we had trouble sleeping that night. The topper was one morning the toilet clogged. We called down to the desk and was told OK and then hung up on. We waited 20 minute and used the restroom on the first floor. We came back to our room after a day in NYC and it was never fixed. I went down again to complain about everything and was never offered an apology. In their defense they did finally fix the toilet.
At check out, all they said was "you're all set. No apology, no asking "how was your stay, NOTHING.

The beds & pillows were very uncomfortable. Service was horrible. Breakfast was really bad as well not a lot of choices. Looked like bagels were old from yday. Location is good but parking lot is really bad. There was no customer service at all I asked for later check out the guy told us no even though we had problems with our shower and hair dryer did not work in the bathroom also the lock was broken. I would not recommend this to anyone the place was really old as well

Stayed five nights, room looked out at elevated MTA railway on Queens Blvd but noise not a problem. Room worked fine, cable, WiFi worked ok. On a hot day the corridors upstairs were stuffy, maybe A/C not on. Tiny parking lot in back,we were fortunate to get one of the 10-12 spaces the first night and never moved it, taking the #7 everywhere. About 3 blocks to the 40th St station, didn't try to check out much else in the area.
Breakfast had excellent bakery-quality donuts and pretty good bagels. Maybe 3 kinds of Kelloggs with milk/ap/orange juice and toastables. Eggs/sausage a bit rubbery and only ate it once.

Having made a reservation over 6 months in advanced, I call the day before arrival to confirm the room for late arrival and the bed configuration. Imagine my dismay when we arrived at 11:20 p.m. to find our room had been cancelled. They do not charge your credit card when you make the reservation ... but they do not wait until you check in either. We were not informed of this and they tried to charge our card the morning we were to arrive. Because they had an old number from our initial reservation, they just cancelled our reservation. The hotel was full when we arrived and the hotel desk clerk was unhelpful, to say the least. When we contacted the 800 number, we were told a La Quinta in NJ had availability. Before driving there at that time of night, I called the hotel directly and was informed they had no rooms either. When we complained to customer service after our return home, we were sent a form letter that included "We are concerned that we did not exceed your expectations during your last visit to our hotel." Exceed our expectations? We never had the opportunity to stay!

This hotel is very close to subway which is a huge plus for a city like New York. The rates are reasonable considering it is 25 mins from Times Square by Subway. When it comes to comfort, the amenities provided are basic but sufficient. The bed and bathroom were clean. The continental breakfast lacks variety though.There is a 24 hr McDonalds adjacent to the hotel. Overall the stay was good.
