“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I chose this motel for its location and value for money based on other people's reviews. It was in a very convenient location for getting the train into Manhattan for sightseeing each day. The free breakfast was a bonus as it set us up for the day, there was enough choice with bagels, muffins, cereal, toast,fruit etc. I would recommend this motel if you want good value, which this is for a NewYork hotel.

Went here for Gay Pride. For the price we paid (about $120 per night), we thought it was "quality." Everything was basic, but clean and comfy. The neighborhood was definitely safe, even though it was a bit gloomy with the old buildings. At night it was quiet. Easy, quick access to public transportation. Customer service was nice enough, didn't encounter any issue.

Just picture that you are staying in a 3-4 star hotel, minus the fanciness (e.g. flat screen tv) and size (walking space was 2-person wide). Everything else was great! If you are looking for a safe, clean and relatively inexpensive place to stay, then this is your best bet. Only con is that it's a big far away from the heart of NYC; expect 25-35 min of public transportation each way. BTW, the diner nearby is delicious and serves an awesome amount of food for the price!

Room Tip: Didn't have any issues with the lower-level room (below ground). May actually help with the nois...

I would recommend this hotel highly,its priced affordable ,close to all modes of commutes in to the city.Its very clean and a continental breakfest is served.But most of all they go out of the way to make each person who enters the door to feel like a guest in their home and they attend to your every need.This staff and management are all about the guest from the smiles to there helpfulness.I myself had a chance to experience one of the nicest gestures from this team.They made a rather sad day for me to one of the nicest gestures I could have received and you dont find that just any where.So if your looking to find a great hotel and feel as if you arrived home check this hotel out ,you will be pleased and save on money as well.Additionally the rooms are large and and very comfortable as well,5 stars is my review.

Room Tip: I stayed in two different floors and they all were perfect and if you wanted anything the staff woul...

If you have stayed at other Quality Inns you will find this one very similar. Actually, I found it better than most Quality Inns - it's a newer property, breakfast is above average, and the staff is more professional. You are in NYC, though so the rooms are smaller (though surprisingly big), the rates are higher (of course), the staff is more curt (but professional), and there is train noise (but minor, no worse than a highway). Our room also had some other minor issues, but fewer than most Quality Inns. Location is very convenient to Manhattan and much cheaper. You are very close to 5 subway lines and not far from a 6th so it's easy to go anywhere - the subway stops are much closer to the hotel than the MTA map would suggest (get a Queens bus map to see for yourself). Traveler tip: take the NQ line one stop north to 36th Ave for some great South American restaurants (on the east of the line) and Indian restaurants (on the west side of the line)!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms in the 100s - they are in the cellar or too close to most vending machines.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights on my recent trip to New York and I booked it on the strength of the mostly positive reviews about the value for being so close to Manhattan and I wasn't disappointed!

Flew in to LaGuardia and after transferring to the subway it was a simple trip down the 7 line with the hotel less than ten minutes' walk from Queensboro Plaza station. There were two other subway stations in the vicinity, 39th Avenue and Queens Plaza, so transport links were great. It took under ten minutes by subway to Times Square at the end of 7, and was a (very!) brisk 35 minute walk straight to Central Park over the Queensboro Bridge as I did that one morning.

Room was spacious and clean, towels were plentiful and it was equipped with a fridge and a safe. Breakfast was provided each morning, a continental style with pastries, croissants, bread, fruit, cereal, juice, coffee and a large selection of glazed and unglazed donuts. The area the hotel is located in isn't particularly nice nor interesting but I felt perfectly safe. There are a few shops on Queens Plaza such as Subway, Dunkin Donuts, a couple of other fast food places, some banks and some convenience stores so handy if you fancy a snack on the way to the subway.

I would definitely recommend this place to others travelling to NYC and who are put off by the sky-high Manhattan hotel prices. For the sake of a short subway ride you can save $$$$ at this great hotel.

If you are travelling on a budget, this is a hotel worth looking fore. Stayed there 10 nights. VERY clean, very helpfull staff, overall no problems at all. We were worried about the transport to Manhattan, but the subway is just around the corner.

The area around the hotel was not supernice, but we allways felt safe and secure. Although, if you want to party late, i would recomend to take a cab to the hotel.

So overall, looking for a clean and "cheap" place to stay, this is a good choise!
