I chose this hotel because of the affordable price that also included breakfast and had a jacuzzi in the room. Upon my arrival the lady at the reception was very grumpy and could not be bothered with anything. At the same time there were some works being done on the elevators so the rooms could only be reached by staircase....

We are presently staying at this property. We are so very pleased with their service that I thought I should write a review Immediately. Except the location ( they make up for this by providing FREE pickup and drop once a day to the nearest Metro station ), I cant think of any shortfalls with this hotel. The staff (...

Maybe this hotel was recently renovated, but I had one of the cleanest rooms I have experienced in this area. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom spotless. Very good accomodations for the $$ in NY city area.

We were stranded in New York during the recent volcanic ash fiasco and ended up in the City View Inn. We were a party of 7 in two rooms for one week. What could have been a very unpleasant stay turned out to be much more pleasant mostly due to the treatment we received at the City View Inn. The...

I have been to this hotel several times in the last three years, because they pick you up at the Laguardia Airport and take you back, take and pick you at the Metro station and had a hot breakfast. Now the hotel has no van, got rid of the drivers while we were there and try to make you walk...

There were 4 of us -- my teenage son, 22-yr-old son and his girlfriend, and me. My sons had never been to NYC and I hadn't been in years. We wanted to visit the city but didn't want to spend a fortune, so we checked w/friends who had been and did a lot of searching. Found this place, but wasn't...

I can't say enough about this place. As for other reviews I've read in the past, they must have done an overhaul. The only semi-negative is that the beds are a bit hard, but again, we are not talking about the W here. Even though I checked in @ 12:00am, the man behind the counter was super sweet and attentive....

This was our first trip to NY as adults, so we wanted something within our budget with a king size bed close to manhattan and this was the place we chose to try. We were not disappointed. When we got there and went to the room it was not made up yet, but we saw inside and it was a...

If the Management and Supervisor persons were as friendly and helpful as their subordinates, this would be the nicest place to stay in Long Island City. And it would be easier to overlook "little" things, like no TV guide channel for the unfamiliar viewer, uninvited but ever-present "6-legged visitors" in the room (leave the bathroom lights on 24/7 if you...
