“happy to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2011

I stayed here with my son and daughter to attend a family celebration in New York city area.. I love hotel location and convenience to go Manhattan. Subway is just block away. Hotel was very clean, beds were comfortable and mostly bathroom was nice size and clean. I like continental breakfast. I wish they have low fat milk and half and half in the breakfast menu. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I just don't like train noise but we have no choice because subway is very close to hotel. We arrived there on very cold and windy evening but found parking front of hotel. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have nice accommodation in budget.

I chose this hotel because there were online reviews saying it was clean. First room they gave me had the worst smell you can imagine coming from the bathroom. I agreed to look at another room, which was better so stayed. Came back later in the evening and went to close curtains only to discover they were for display only and didn't cover the window - this is when there was snow outside. Window doesn't close properly either.

The one thing I will say is it's close to the subway, but I wouldn't recommend going into/coming out of subway station at night - either 39th Avenue or Queenboro Plaza.

Easy walk to the subway station, although the neighborhood is not the greatest. Room was clean with comfortable bed, but there is a lot of construction noise across the street, which started before daylight. Breakfast buffet was adequate. 24 hour front desk staff, who were helpful.

Went to NYC to treat the kids, 7 and 9 to the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade.
Arrived on wednesday late afternoon. We were a little aprehensive when pulling up out front as the hotel is in an area that is transitioning from taxi cab parking lots to new hotels. Hotel is about a block from the elevated train tracks and driving in the neighborhood is a bit daunting with lots of one way streets and nearby expressway and bridge access roads.
Got a parking spot right in front of the hotel and was pleasantly surprised to see a smiling desk clerk appear at the door with a luggage cart.
Check in was a breeze, and I had room keys within minutes.
The room, on the 5th floor was easy to find, only about 8 rooms on each floor.
It was small, but very very clean and comfortable. Bedding was fresh and he bed and pillows very comfortable. Maid service every day was impeccable.
Travel into the city was as easy as described in the other reviews, and the neighborhood while seeming a bit desolate, never felt unsafe. We were even directed by a nearby coffee shop owner in front of the 39th avenue train station where to go for a great diner style thanksgiving dinner.
Trains could be heard in the room as they went by, but not enough to be irritating. With the help of the same friendly desk clerk the next morning, we were able to catch a train into the city and enjoy the parade. Within a few "subway" trips we were able to get the hang of the system and enjoyed ourselves so much that we stayed a few more days than planned.

Although this is over in Long Island City, it's a fine hotel with an easy subway ride into Manhattan attractions. The room was small, but as clean as they come ... and, surprisingly, the elevated train outside sounded like no more than a strong wind when we heard it and it didn't awaken us. The breakfast is mostly cereal, milk, toast, pastries, jam and such (the only protein is the milk). Friendly staff. The only drawback is, if you're going to be coming back to the hotel via subway and at night, be aware that there's a block-and-a-half walk from the station to the hotel that is pretty dark and past industrial parking lots. Not scary, but an area where in the dark you'll probably choose not tarry. Bottom line: We'd stay here again without question.

This hotel offered one of the best experience in NYC for a most reasonable cost. The only limitation is that it's not in Manhattan proper, but it's very close to two subway stations; and between the walk, buying your subway pass, waiting for a train, and getting to Manhattan, you have to count 15-30 min. Tthe area could look a little more inviting -- there's construction and it's "blue-collar," therefore don't expect manicured lawns. However, I hardly saw anybody that looked menacing, so it was just "industrial-looking." I walked from the station back to the hotel aroud 9-10pm. It was dark, but OK (for disclosure, I'm a medium-built guy). As far as the hotel staff is concerned, they were exceptionally nice, professional, and responsible. On my early arrival in the morning, from a red-eye flight, they had a full hotel, and they informed me that check-in would not be possible until at least 2pm (their policy). They allowed me to work on my laptop (and connect online) although technically I wasn't checked in yet, and to even have some of the food in the breakfast area (a blessing, considering how wonderful it felt to have a coffee and jelly donut!). Around 11am to noon, a room was ready, and they let me in early. I felt immensely grateful. In response to all of this, I will come back, and I have told my colleagues that this is the hotel to pick when visiting New York! I also noticed a fair amount of parents with teenage kids (some spoke French with a Canadian accent, others German and Dutch). Because the hotel isn't far from the trains (although not right next to the tracks), you can hear trains. It's noticeable, but not, IMO, bothersome, and it certainly didn't keep me awake at night, although I'm not a deep sleeper.

I recently satyed in this hotel because of price and proximity to Manhanttan. although the neighborhood was kind of industrial the hotel was nice. It offered convienent access to the subway with access to Manhattan. I was suprised that I did not hear the subway at all. Overall for the price it was a great place to stay. The only downside to this hotel is that the windows on the upper levels did not have shades that you could pull to hide the sun if you wanted to sleep late but the lower floors had it. I was also glad that the front desk held my bags when I went to manhattan and they did no mess with them or riffle through them
