“Breakfast”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The breakfast is too simple and there are not many restaurants around. Apart from Metro line N, it will be quite difficult to get to there.

This review will be organized in order of my stay there...parking, room/service quality, breakfast quality, etc.

I am also speaking as a Best Western rewards member, so I have stayed at plenty of Best Westerns in multiple countries. There were really no benefits for me staying here as a rewards member and I was highly disappointed.

When I first visited this hotel, I had a reasonable expectation that parking might be a problem. I tried calling the hotel while driving there to see where I should park...after several attempts, I still couldn't get through, and had to figure it out on my own.

Their parking garage (which I also found out about on my own) was very small and was also shared with an adjacent Howard Johnson's. Bottom line, if you get to the hotel later than 7pm (even that's pushing it), don't expect to get a spot. I highly doubt that they have spaces for more than 10% of the rooms between these two hotels (also pushing it). I don't even think they have a total of 50 spaces available. The only benefit is that it's free. For the rest of us (which included me on the first day), we have to fight for available street parking. Because everybody seems to park on both sides of the street anyways, I decided to take a chance, and paid the price...literally, with two $60 parking tickets. These parking officers are royal ***holes when it comes to this, as the second ticket was placed right along with the first, no sympathy whatsoever.

Ok, sorry for the parking rant. The room itself was clean, well-organized, and I was able to get good quality sleep.

The hotel is very well placed to a subway line, which is just a short walk away. There isn't too much in the way of restaurants within a quarter mile, so you'll have to walk a little further if you want to find a good sit down resto.

The breakfast was sufficiently stocked, although I wish it had a bit more variety.

Long story short...the hotel itself is decent, but good luck on finding a parking spot...that part seriously reduced the experience for me.

Room Tip: Stay at a different hotel that actually has sufficient parking available.

within easy reach of manhattan, the hotel is clean and efficient, with large rooms. Good value compared to other hotels in the area.
Local restaurants are down market, nearest quality ones are on Broadway about a mile away.

We have stayed in this hotel now twice and have been very pleased both times. It is a great value for the money. Half of what you would pay for a hotel in Manhatten and only a brief subway ride to the heart of downtown. It subway is only a block from the hotel. Hotel is very clean. We had a Manhatten view room and that view was spectacular. There is a complimentary breakfast and free parking if you happened to have driven there. I believe by NY city standards the room was fairly spacious as well.

Room Tip: ask for the Manhatten view room. Not always available but worth it if you can get it.

This hotel was probable renovated for it sits in the middle of an industrial area, restaurant are not in the area except for one down the street called Bel Aire... Great food but that is another story, Back to the hotel it was a small oversized room that they called a Suite fit me pretty good since all I did was come back walk to dinner and go to sleep early rise. Cost is Cheap and the rooms are nice. Best Western has to change their moto for PLUS for the food in the PLUS Breakfast is something to be desired. The donuts where problem there for a couple of days and the eggs are turning green. To save them the room was fine. food gets a 4 in a scale of 1 to 10 one lowest 10 highest.

Room Tip: Get a suite they are cheap
