Enjoyed a lovely 3 night stay with my partner. The hotel is located within 5mins of subway. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are basic but clean. A free breakfast is included in your stay and free tea and coffee is served thoughout the day and night.
This was our second stay in this hidden gem of a hotel...staff first class always a hello and goodbye on the reception. Breakfast always fresh and tasty Rooms clean and comfortable after a long day in the big city. Already looking at booking our next stay for next year. Highly recommended
I actually visited in September 2019, however due to travelling all over the world for the last 12 months, I am just in the process of writing all the reviews. This is my second stay in the LIC Hotel and it was just as good as the last one! The rooms are clean and BED BUG FREE with a safe and complimentary water. The bathroom was also very clean with a very powerful shower. Breakfast is included in the price and offer both hot and cold options with plenty of choice. It’s only a 15 minute subway ride into Manhattan and the subway station is only a 2 minute walk down the street which was perfect. I will definitely return again!
I booked the 2 twin bed room for $79/night. PROS: Location was within 2 blocks to the subway, a supermarket, a few local eateries, a postal services office and a few other businesses. The room and linens were clean. I undressed the beds to inspect for bedbugs and found none. The mattress is covered with a bedbug cover. There is no carpeting. The shower is PHENOMENAL. Hot and strong. I actually took 2 showers a day because it was the best i've taken in a long time (better than my home LOL). The breakfast looked tasty. I'm not a breakfast person so I didn't eat any, but there was sausage, scrambled eggs, toast, fruit, jam, jelly, butter, cereals and milk, coffee and tea, half and half and sweeteners. The front desk seemed knowledgeable and friendly. CONS: NOISY AS HELL. Be advised that if you are driven crazy with constant thumps, bumps, people dropping stuff from above and kids running back and forth on your head, you will fail miserably if you get a lower floor. The first 2 nights, there was a family with young kids. These rooms are not big so I don't know HOW they were running back and forth constantly. I finally got fed up and banged on the wall like I was the police, and they stopped. I tried twice to be moved to the top floor. The front desk lady did check both times and wasn't mean or condescending about it, but if there's nothing available, there's nothing available. The next 5 nights seemed to have a couple people up there. I could hear everytime they dropped something, got in and out of bed, used the toilet, etc but at least they were not making mad dashes across the space. I was counting the days until my checkout, and was up, packed and checked out by 10 to head to LGA to wait for my 3:36pm flight because I couldn't take it anymore. If you get stuck with a room above your head, my suggestion is to bring your BEST noise cancelling headphones and earplugs, and be prepared to sleep in them. Might I also suggest white noise apps. I used "Noise Generator" because it's customizable and can replicate a low rumbling sound (which you will need to counter the low rumblings upon your head). I won't be staying here again. Good luck.…
Stayed here just before Christmas and found a little gem of a hotel. First impressions in the lobby and of the breakfast area arent great but is that a downside? Not at all. Rooms are comfortable and clean with a big bed and good size tv. Breakfast was the same each day but when only staying for 5 nights it wasnt a problem. The location of the hotel is excellent, within a 5 minute walk of the nearest subway which takes you straight into Manhattan. 100% Would stay again
