We stayed at this Best Western for a trip to the U.S. Open in Flushing. It's only an 8-10 min taxi ride to Arthur Ashe stadium and about 35 minutes by subway (E line and then free transfer to the 7 line). I was a little worried upon arrival because some reviews commented on the unsafe surrounding neighborhood. However, during my two night stay, we walked from Jamaica Van Wyck station back to the hotel (a 6-7 min walk) and while the neighborhood can't be classified as "safe", in no way did I feel threatened. From Jamaica Van Wyck, it seems that there are enough shops, gas stations, and street lights to ward off any shady characters.
This hotel was the cheapest 2 star hotel that I could find within a 5-10 mile radius so I thought that cleanliness would be a problem. Fortunately it was not. Bedsheets and bathroom were free of hair and mold. Price was reasonable considering the time (Labor Day Weekend) and the NYC location.
Breakfast area was clean and well-stocked for a continental breakfast (hard-boiled eggs were even served). Staff in the front desk were cordial enough. Other guests minded their own business and looked like they wouldn't cause any trouble.
Best part about the hotel is the free parking lot, a real plus at any hotel in crowded NYC. It was a huge relief to park our car there for three days without having to worry about exorbitant rates. Noise level was rather quiet and peaceful considering the hotel is right next to the Van Wyck Expressway.
As a budget accommodation above motel status, I would recommend this hotel.
