My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel from 26/08/13-02/09/2013 on the recommendation of a friend-after reading the previous reviews we booked with a little trepidation! However the hotel was absolutely fine, its not snazzy high end but for the price it does the job and more! The area appeared quiet with office buildings and a few residential blocks not a lot to do so if you want drink/food/shops etc you have to venture a little further, however there is a handy garage next door which stocks pretty much everything you'd need. The Queensborough subway is at the bottom of the road (5 min walk max) which gets you to Times Square/Manhattan in under 10 mins. For a taxi we paid no more than $20 from Manhattan to the hotel. The hotel staff were pleasant, the rooms were basic but clean and had a v.comy bed and handy little fridge. We never had any problems with anybody stealing from our room but as a precaution we kept valuables and money out of sight. The breakfast was OK and can get a bit crowded but again for the price you cannot grumble! As a veggie i got my fill on scrambled eggs, cereal, toast and bagels!
For the price the hotel was spot on and we would recommend especially for those who want to stay in New York on a budget, but if you do have a bit more to spend i would say treat yourself and stay closer to Manhattan and Times Square for the atmosphere and the action!
