“Diverse neighborhood - ok hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The best thing about this hotel is the neighborhood. While it's not in Manhattan - its only 20 minutes away on the subway and one block to the subway station. The area feels safe and enjoys a lot of diversity - for an Irish tourist it felt like a real New York neighborhood which was interesting to experience. There are lots of pubs (mostly Irish) and shops a few blocks away at 61st Avenue and a little further on at 74th and Roosavelt is a neighborhood that is pure India. I loved it.

The hotel itself is cheapish for NYC and much more so than Manhattan. Sheets were clean and fresh but carpets were pretty grubby. The reception staff while not rude were studiously unfriendly. Maybe its a New York thing I don't know - but they need reminding they're in the hospitality industry.

Breakfast includes passable bagels and ok coffee - nothing exceptional. A better option is the lovely Le Flor neighborhood cafe one block away.

I'd stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Queens Blvd are noisy. Try getting one at the back.

Convenient clean hotel. Breakfast dining area was very small only gripe. Beds and room facility very comfortable and clean. Very convenient close to local bars and shops. Also next door to subway. Staff at hotel very pleasant and helpful. I'd stay there any time in future for holiday visits to New York.

This hotel was a good value for a close to NYC hotel. We found it to be clean and in good repair.
We spent 2 days here prior to our cruise. The neighborhood was safe, even at night. The subway was about a block from the hotel. It was a 15-20 min ride to Times Square. There are quite a few steps up to the subway on both ends so may not be for everyone. There is a bus stop a couple of blocks away if needed. We used a town car from the LaGuardia Airport to hotel for about $35. To Manhattan it was about $30.
The hotel staff was efficient, not very friendly. This seemed to be a family affair. The breakfast was skimpy and the sweet rolls were not fresh, day old? Forget the eggs and sausage, they were disgusting. They had watered down juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. cereal, yogurt, bagels and toast. Seating in the breakfast area was also skimpy, 3 tables. You have to take food to your room during peak times, no big deal.
All that being said it was really OK. A good clean, close hotel at 1/3 of the price of NYC hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a 3rd floor room toward the back, very quiet.

I have stayed here two times, in June 2013 and just last week. In June, there was no one at the desk when I arrived to check in. I waited 10 minutes. Smoke detector in room had been removed. Internet would not work until I made two phone calls to front desk. Breakfast was bad. And staff seemed remote and unconcerned. It was much worse last week. I did arrive early, having just gotten off a ship, and would have understood if room was not ready. But I was told by a rude, surly, and completely unapologetic desk clerk that indeed the room was ready, but I would have to wait 4 hours, until 1 PM to get into it - unless of course I was willing to pay a 50 dollar fee. I would have sat in the lobby but there was not a single chair, so I sat on the steps for awhile, and finally left - taking one of my suitcases with me as they have no storage room to safely leave luggage. Hall carpets were dirty, internet failed again, and breakfast had not improved. The price is right at this hotel, but is it worth it? I think not.

We stayed here one night and the room was excellent, super large comfy kingsize bed and everything you need. You go out of the hotel hang a right and the station is at the end of the road and its about a half hours subway ride into Times Square. It's ideal if you want a cheap hotel away from the hustle and bustle of New York but if I go again I would pay the extra and stay in Manhattan. If you take into consideration the cab/subway/convenience, it wouldn't have cost an awful lot more to have stayed more central. It's too far to just nip back during the day to leave shopping or to get changed before going out for the evening or to just have a chill so it makes a long day. It just depends what your looking for the hotel itself was good and the location is ok and it was very quiet, there was nothing really to find fault with. The breakfast was nothing special but adequate with a selection of pastries and hard boiled eggs. There's only about four tables in the dining area so we just took ours back to our room to eat. The reception desk were ok but not especially friendly or welcoming.

checkout time is 11am & checkin time is 3pm. Additional $50 charge for early checkin. no choice. I had to pay $50
because I didn't want to wait for 3 hours. couldn't even go somewhere else leaving the luggages and come back at
the checkin time because there was NO safe place to keep the luggages. they just leave the luggages right by the
front door because of the extremely tiny lobby.
2. unbelievable! no screen window! had to chase mosquitoes came in while the window was open.
3. very noisy due to the busy street right in front of the hotel. on top of that, my room was right next to the elevator.
the walls don't seem to be sound proof.
4. Staff are very rude. they never smile.
5. the hotel is in ghetto area. it was scary to walk to the hotel from subway in the evening.
6. I stayed for 5 days but the internet was not working for 4 days. even after fixing it, i couldn't use it because it was too..too..slow.
7. free breakfast of same menu every single morning was garbage too.

Room Tip: my tip is just not to go to this hotel.

This was my second trip to US Open + traditional NY attractions. The previous time I stayed at the Holland Motor Lodge in Jersey City [the name has since changed I believe], paid just under $100 but had to walk about a kilometer across a shopping mall car park, then the mall itself, then some more to PATH, then endure that ancient transit system, and still end up just at 33rd St. This time the walk to the subway was three minutes maybe, then less than 20 minutes to either the BJ King Tennis Center or to GrandCentral or Times Square in the opposite direction. The hotel itself was just adequate, clean, efficient, easily reached from JFK by taxi or Subway (7, then E) + Airtrain. Like others have said, the breakfast is nothing to write home about but it was still better than at many US budget accommodation offerings. One complaint is about the really effective but not very quiet split-type AC, another about the poor choice of TV channels, fewer than 20 working, and none showing tennis if you wished for some of it from the night session. Didn't like the free-parking idea, though, wish they'd charge those with cars and charged less for rooms those without one, there being no such thing as free lunch.
Still, we'll be back for sure.
