“Ok place to stay”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

The location is great if you need a cheap place to stay that feels safe and clean. Staff is very nice. Be aware that the beds are very small and the room is also very small. The bed size was definitely not a full size, it was about as big as a twin and a half, I've never seen beds that size. While it is true that there is a view of a junkyard, it is not unsafe feeling. Just an industrial area. The first night we stayed there the noise from our neighbor was terrible, the second night we were there it was very quiet.

My husband and I recently moved back to Manhattan after seven years in the SF Bay Area. His job is in Midtown. We knew there were several modestly priced (by NYC standards) hotels in Long Island City, Queens. They are a reasonable subway ride into Manhattan under the Queensboro (59th St) bridge on either the N/Q or the R. We stayed for three nights at the Days Inn a few blocks away but the noise (both from the subway/elevated train and other guests) was excessive. We moved to the Comfort Inn. The hotel was quiet and the staff was very accommodating. We asked for a quiet room - we got one on the top floor. There was never noise from other guests. While the elevated train was nearby, the building was solidly constructed and the sound was not a problem. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was sufficiently large. The breakfast bar was more than adequate and well-stocked through the entire cycle. An attendent kept the breakfast room clean and welcoming. All hotel employees were friendly and professional. The room was small but sufficient. The price fluctuated a bit during our stay due to occupancy levels, but it was still on average 1/2 the price of a comparable room in Manhattan (two miles away). The only complaint --- Not enough selection on the TV channels. We stayed for over three weeks until our apartment was available in Manhattan.

Its closer the subway station with is a must have in NY. The staff are kind. And that's all. Rooms are badly cleaned and it is sourounded by dumpyards that make, at least, an unpleasant view on the bedroom window.

Thank You for taking the time to review our hotel.
We are sorry you were not completely satisfied with your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience. We take pride in being one of the cleanest hotels in Long Island City and most of the reviews shared by our guets will confirm that.
If any cleanliness issue is brought to our attention, we take prompt action. Your satisfaction is our top priority.
As any NYC resident or frequet traveler will tell you, there is not much that can be done about the scrap metal yard (not dump yard) across the hotel, Our location in terms or proximity to Manhattan is unbeatable and we take pride in the comfort and services offered to our guest.
. Long Island City is the fastest growing neighborhood in NYC and it is undergoing a lot of beautification profjects and is quickly becoming a hub for great hotels.
We hope you will consider staying at our hotel on your future visits. Thank You.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn with 12 other family members back in June. We chose this hotel becuase of its proximity to Midtown, subway access, and the cruise ship docks (about 15 minutes away). This hotel also had a complimentary breakfast and some limited free parking (6 parking spots). The combination of location, money savings (free breakfast and parking), and good reviews on Trip Advisor also prompted us to pick this hotel. We were not disappointed. We were able to aquire 3 or the 6 parking spots which saved us well over a thousand dollars in parking costs between the 3 families during our 10 day stay. The rooms, though small, were clean and well maintained. Nice soft beds and linens. The only complaints we had about the hotel were a sluggish toilet (that didn't want to flush) and the breakfast bar did not have creamer or half and half for coffee. Overall a great value and location for anyone looking for a nice place to stay when visiting New York. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel to spend a lot of time relaxing in- this may not be the place for you. We spent most of our time out exploring the city's museums, sites, and sounds and for the limited time we spent in the room- this hotel was just right!

This is a great hotel, in an excellent location.
The rooms are a reasonable size, especially for New York, clean, with very comfortable beds and office chair. There is NO EVIDENCE OF BED BUGS. Free wi-fi internet access, which worked very well with my cell phone, can be enjoyed throughout the hotel, and two PCs (with printer) are available in the business center downstairs.
The staff here are excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable. They all make you feel at home.
One very short block from the hotel is Queensboro Plaza subway station with the N, Q and 7 (including 7x) lines. One stop on the N or Q line is Manhattan, and Times Square can be quickly reached on the 7 line. At nearby Queens Plaza subway station, the E line is good for accessing JFK airport (via AirTrain JFK) or Penn Station (for Newark Airport).
The hotel is close to a very good laundromat, "Express 1" at 21-39 45th St, with helpful staff and a pleasant environment.
I would definitively return to Comfort Inn, LIC.

Not an extravagant hotel for sure, but the staff was very helpful and friendly and the convenience of being steps away from the subway more than made up for any inconveniences. The breakfast room is small - we had to take our food back to the room one morning - but because we came and went at odd hours we didn't have any problems with the elevator as some other reviews have indicated.

Our sheets had a few holes in them, but the room was clean and the shower had great water pressure. As a place to rest your head in between seeing the city, it's fantastic value! Any problems we had were resolved quickly.

We needed a one nighter in LIC and this place was great. If you just need a comfy room to crash in this will do it. Right across from Queensboro Bridge Subway, so that is very convenient. Room was nice, bed comfy and clean...Could use some new carpet in the place...but was a good rate for a good room. Service was really nice. Why spend extra money if you are going to be tooling around nyc all day! Had some views of Manhattan depending on where you are in the hotel. Cont Breakfast. Fridge/freezer in room was nice to have....No complaints really, for that level of hotel. Just a good basic hotel, so.. very good for what it is.
