I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and wasn't expecting anything special but I was pleasantly surprised at how fantastic this motel was. First of all they provide an excellent free shuttle service to and from JFK. The staff are some of the friendliest hotel staff I've ever come across they provided me with so much info of the local area showing me where to eat, where to get the subway into Manhattan and what I should do while I was there. They even refused tipping when they dropped me off at the motel and carried my luggage in, this shocked me a lot as most drivers are more than happy to take your money. The motel itself is fairly basic but still its lovely and clean and comfortable, just what I needed. I had a lovely view of the water outside and the location of the motel is perfect. There is a convenience shop right next door and just a bit further there are plenty of other shops and restaurants. The subway stop is about a 20 minute walk or just a quick taxi ride and its a direct train into Manhattan. They even provided me with a free late check out. This motel exceeded all my expectations and I would definitely recommend it! oh and check out the bagel place just down the road, the staff at the motel recommended it to me and by far the best bagels I've ever had!
