This is a 2.5-3 star hotel. Location- this hotel is located in Queens. It is in a residential area. We had 2 children with us( I wouldn't walk around the neighborhood with them) but if you are just looking for a place to sleep and watch television it's fine. There was a Catholic Church 2-3 blocks away. Continental breakfast- very...

If I could give zero stars, I would. This place is a dump. Worst hotel I have ever stayed it. Reeks of marijuana. A broken elevator that is clearly not working correctly but still available to use. Couldn't get a single good night's sleep because the people next to me kept setting off their fire alarm smoking weed all night...

Location is not that good, however can be reached to nearest metro within 10 Mins. They have good Airport Transfer facility. The buffet breakfast was really a mess and the...

If adventure is your thing this is the hotel for you. Greeting you at reception is a guy struggling to speak English behind inch thick bullet proof glass. The smell of weed is overpowering. The corridors are filthy. The rooms are dirty, dirty curtains dirty carpets. Plus a lovely smear of blood on the wallpaper. And just for good measure...

This is a very nice hotel. It is old, but a great hotel. The first impression was not so good to be honest, the house looked like the home from the Adams family ha-ha, and around the hotel there was a cemetery, but don´t be scared by that. When we got in we were greeted by the fantastic friendly staff....

The front desk guys were very friendly and helpful. The building is older and I like the charm of it. Our room had a good view of the city and it was clean. The building itself has a bit of a smoke smell, but I know that NY doesn't have the same laws as SC and FL with indoor smoking....

OK, when you see the hotel rating and reviews, you know not to expect much for the bargain rate that you are paying. So, you should not be surprised at the rundown condition of the hotel, the distance from transportation and dining or be surprised when you cannot connect to the wireless network outside of the hotel lobby. However, you...
