Right, so hurricane sandy did a number on us and it's the second day we're without power. After staying a night at the red roof inn in Westbury, we had to find different accommodations because they were booked solid through the week. After many phone calls and many inquiries at at least a dozen hotels , we found the red roof inn in flushing to have vacancy! Now if you're looking for your regular-all american hotel like Holiday Inn or Marriott, scratch that thought right this minute. This is a bare bones (no coffee machine, no microwave, no parking!!) tiny rooms (10x20 feet, excluding the bath that's about a 6 foot x 6 foot - no joke.) one chair , one tiny desk, one small refrigerator and a tv. For a one twin bed plus one full bed on the third floor (room 30A), we're paying $200 a night. Highway robbery but we have literally nowhere to go.The floors are filthy , you must wear socks to walk around because there's no wall-to-wall carpeting. Beds are small but okay.
There's a perpetual Chinese cuisine scent permeating in the air, perhaps because people like eating in their rooms and the walls are paper thin, or the restaurants are too close.
If we weren't so desperate, I'd pay in full and leave right now without using the room, however, I'm rather grateful they have vacancy at all.More
