“This place has gone downhill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here about 8 months ago and were satisfied, especially for the value, and stayed again for 3 nights recently as the location is convenient for us. While the beds are still comfortable, everything but the sheets and bathroom seemed slightly dirty. There was either chocolate or blood on the bed skirt, and a stain on the ceiling that looked like blood but could have been something else- pizza? The smoke detector had been removed. The real deal breaker for the future was that the ventilation intermittently draws in cigarette smoke from somewhere, although this is supposedly a smoke-free hotel. There are not enough cleaning people- we left our room at 10:30 am, and when we returned at 2:30 it was untouched. We called to ask that it be cleaned, and were told that the checkouts had to be serviced first- someone showed up around 3. The hotel could be so much better with just a little more attention, but it is suffering from not enough.

POSITIVES; room was large and bathroom and bed were large which they tend to be in new york so that comes with par really. location was good and area was accessible
NEGATIVES; toilet backed up whilst staying there and reception didnt seem to happy when reported. staff are pretty poor and unfriendly. breakfast was a shambles and all in all very over-priced

There are plenty of reviews on this facility, so let me merely update some comments with my experience.
1. The internet was slow during peak times (morning and early evening) but never collapsed. Otherwise it's OK.
2. Same with the elevator. It's slow but not painfully slow.
3. When I checked out, it took just about 40 minutes from the time I left my room, checked out, caught the subway train, exited it in Grand Central subway stop and took the elevator with my luggage and escalator up to the transit room (with the clocks) in Grand Central Terminal.
4. The wait for #7 trains is nearly always less than 10 minutes, and much less during rush hours.
5. The 52nd St. stop on the #7 line is elevated with no disabled access. That means one has to lug one's luggage up and down stairs that are maybe 40 feet high in total.
6. I checked for b-bugs by lifting the mattress as always. While there were no discernable insects, it wasn't as clean as it should have been between the bed's frame and the wall.
7. There was no listing of television channels, and it's a low definition signal on a high definition screen.
8, The breakfast was spartan, and sitting space can be in short supply for short periods, but it's serviceable albeit far from fancy. The bagels were really good..
In short, it's a decent alternative when Manhattan prices are intolerable.

Room Tip: High floors are nice.

Worst hotel ever I have stayed so far. This is the the 1st time I am submitting my review on TripAdvisor. Refrigerator DONT WORK, Internet DONT WORK message comes up saying "Too many subscribers are already logged, Please try again later." , TV channels DONT WORK, elevator takes 15 minutes to come on 5th floor. Breakfast was fine but breakfast area has 3 tables so there is no space to have break fast. Over priced hotel, i paid $160 and tax. Bed sheet and pillow had hairs on them.They didnt change the coffee mug daily, even when we asked them and request to them.

ONLY one thing good about hotel is its location

Room Tip: dont stay ever.. mean ever..

We had a five day four night visit for St patricks Day and to visit family so we selected this hotel as it was in a good location, near to Manhattan as well as Queens with had good links to Long Island. The accommodation was claen and comfortable, and well priced for a budget hotel. The overall service was good, staff were accomodating and friendly. The breakfast are is small but there was nothing to stop you taking breakfast back to your room. If something at breakfast had run out they would quickly replenish it. There were problem with the lifts during our stay but as we were on the first floor, this wasnt an issue. All in all, to be recommended.

Travelling as a single woman I want somewhere that feels safe, but does not cost a fortune. In New York that can be a big ask but this hotel meets my criteria.
I have just stayed a second time and will be visiting again. It's five minutes walk from the 52nd station on the 7 line, so only around 20 minutes into Times Square on the subway. I have always found the reception staff to be more than helpful ( the same young lady always appears to be working during the day and she is very nice and helpful) and have never had any problems with the housekeeping. The rooms are a good size and have everything needed.
In short I find it a excellent hotel, at a bargain price for New York and would recommend it.

I really wanted my first trip to New York to be special and it was except for Quality Inn Woodside. The staff was very unprofessional and often down right rude. My husband is 70 years old,I am 60 and five out of our ten day trip,the elevator was broken so we had to walk up and down four flights of stairs,while the front desk staff just smirked. The smoke alarm in our room went off on it's own and after ten minutes of listening to it the staff came up to fix it only for it to go off again fifteen minutes later. Very annoying! On check-out day we had to haul three large pieces of luggage down four flights of stairs with no help from staff. I will be back to NY but I promise you,I will NEVER stay in this place again.

Room Tip: Do Not Stay here
