“Mixed experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This was too far from anywhere for us to really be able to relax and enjoy our stay in New York. We booked here and thought it would be a good base for getting in and out of New York. The reality is you have to brave cabs to get anywhere as it's two miles to the subway and they all claim not to know where the hotel is and try to fleece you by driving around the longest possible routes. (It cost us $80 a day in cab fares ...plus $140 to get from Newark to the hotel.

The hotel was clean and the room spacious, however the racing of cars outside was a real issue and in my four night stay I only slept once past three a.m.

Breakfast was nice, although one morning my step-daughter and I had to share it with a prostitute who was dressed in red mini dress and fishnets..... and seemed to be piling food into a bag! She told me loudly about her occupation and what she'd been doing in the hotel......

Finally there wasn't much to do in the evenings as we were too far to go back into town and it was a 20-5 minute walk to the sports bar in Maspeth and the restaurants. It is a bit like living on an industrial estate near the freeway. The staff at Reception were helpful, but I wish I'd not fallen for the sales pitch that this was a good base for visiting New York, as it left us all feeling fed up and disappointed, which I wouldn't had I stayed closer to Manhatten.

I have to say I was very skeptical about staying at the Holiday Inn Express Maspeth after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor.

I was very pleasantly surprised. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and spotlessly clean and the breakfast was fresh and more than sufficient in quality, variety and quantity.

This is a Holiday Inn Express! And it is an excellent Holiday Inn Express, to the Trip Advisor contributors who try and measure it against a 5* resort in Vegas, you are a bunch of idiots!

We enjoyed our stay at the holiday inn. Our flight was delayed due to the hurricane. Delta airlines put us up here for free. Room was clsen, bed and shower clean also. Room had a huge tv, wifi and breakfast was nice. There's no restaurant there however there's a McDonalds next door, petrol station across the road and there's an extensive take out menu in the room for take aways close by.Only downfall is hotel not close to JFK airport but very convenient foe LGA airport. The hotel has a shuttle bus for LGA airport. We would stay there again.

Great place to not get sleep. They race cars in the street behind the hotel and party
And it seems to be allowed. If you like drag racing you should check it out if not avoid thus place
The rooms are newer and clean

Nice size room with comfortable bed with fresh, plump bedding and pillows. Room had a comfortable chair plus a large desk and chair and window seat. Large flat screen with wide range of channels. Bathroom was a very nice size and best of all -- no tub -- just a large shower which is my preference. Room was well maintained by the housekeeping staff. Closet has a safe and an ironing board and iron. Lighting throughout was very good. Heat/AC unit is quiet and the room was always a comfortable temperature. Breakfast area in lobby is large and has a very good array of food available. The hotel is next to a McDonald's and a there is a gas station within walking distance. Parking area behind hotel is fenced and the room was quiet even though the hotel is right off the LIE. This was a great location as we drove into Manhattan the three days that we stayed and this was very convenient for that purpose.

Room Tip: I'd suggest a room at the back of building, facing the parking lot.

Stay at this hotel quite often while I am visiting Brooklyn, where my daughter goes to school. It is generally more reasonable than Brooklyn hotels. It is very close to drive and/or take taxi into city. There is always parking...in their lot...not on a street. I travel alone, some of the time, and feel the neighborhood is safe. Conveniently located right off freeway. Accommodations are comfortable and as expected. Breakfast is fine. Front desk staff always friendly and accommodating.

This hotel had to be the worst place I have ever stayed. The front desk help was rude and the bathroom in the room smelled so awful we could not stand it. We were afraid to sleep in the beds and actually saw an ant crawling on the floor. We arrived to late to get a room somewhere else, but at first daylight we checked out and they had the nerve too charge us a penalty, they should have paid us to stay. I will never stay there again and will be skeptical of holiday inn expresses from here on out. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
