First of all, it is very budget friendly hotel which is very close to Manhattan. The subway station is 3-4 mins walk from hotel and you can get to Manhattan in 15 mins subway ride. It is in a quiet neighbourhood and will not see much people on the street at night. You can easily get there from JFK airport... More

Very nice hotel. We went in the winter when it is cold outside, but in the room was warm. Very comfortable bed, TV and fast WiFi with perfect coverage, what else is needed :)?. Rooms were cleaned every day. Although we lost nail clippers out of the room, but we do not blame maids, perhaps because they fell into the... More

The staff at the hotel is exceptional, they were extremely friendly and outgoing. The breakfast was average, pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, with orange and apple juice. The rooms are extremely small (like Microtel small), but nicely furnished with a flat screen TV and a fridge. bathrooms are clean and do include a hairdryer. The entire hotel was clean, which can...

This hotel is just a block away from the subway station and ride to times square takes like 20 mins. Rooms are clean and the Front Desk employees Kumar and Salman were exceptional in giving out the directions about restaurants and sightseeing places. The only drawback was the breakfast area was too small and it gets crowded after 8:30 an... More

This is a budget hotel located in a Queens neighborhood of other budget and mid-priced lodgings across the bridge from Manhattan. And I found it neither better or worse than the others at which I have stayed in the past. Maybe this hotel has a bigger lobby than the others and on-site security is more visible, but the rooms are... More

Very good location in close proximity to manhattan. Subway stop is just one block away. Rooms are clean. Friendly staff. Breakfast is average and needs bigger sitting area. No problem if you can just take it to your room.
