We had been touring the US for a month in rental car which was to be returned to JFK international Airport after 4 days in NYC. It is not easy to find a motel in NY which has car parking and is close to public transport. This motel is some 1-2 miles from the nearest subway(Woodside)and also has no reserved parking for an individual guest.
We decided after much deliberation to give it a go and arrived around 1600 hrs to ensure we got a car park. There were about 6 or so spaces available at that time so no problem.
The great thing with this motel is they have a shuttle that services the Airport hourly as required and does a run to the Woodside Metro / Subway station on the half hour as required.
The shuttle service is excellent with 2 friendly drivers and we had not one issue. We did not have cell phones with US SIM cards so could not use them as such to make cell phone calls. Not a problem though as there is a DUNKIN DONUT store atcross street from the Subway station. It has 24 hour operation and free WiFi. I have Skype Premium accouint (if you do not have it get a subscription) which is fantastic. Using the Skype App on my android phone and the free wifi we could easily call the motel when we arrived back from Manhattan on the subway. The service runs until 0100 am and they were always there with 5-10 mins from ringing
We found you could go out in your car sightseeing outer areas during the morning and early afternoon then park the car and take subway into downtown or wherever.
THIS WORKED GREAT.
Now the room we had was 118 a King suite. Fraction tighter than the normal King Suite but still good. No Issues at all there - quiet, clean and comfortable.
Breakfast room is very clean and spacious and breakfast was just what I would expect from Comfort Inns and Suites.
The Ice machine in the corridor across from room 118 had its moments when it sounded like it was destroying itself but that was only for short periods and we dealt with that.
Internet was excellent once connected but there was a couple of times when it was extremely difficult to get to the guest log on screen to actually connect. There was only the one morning we could not connect at all and Reception indicated that was same for everyone.
If you have a rental car then this is a very good option - I am glad we chose it.
