“Pretty decent until you run into a problem.”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Husband and I have stayed here five times for a week at a time, and each time was good enough. The last time we experienced a problem with our reservation (not our fault) and we needed management's help. He yells first (oh boy what a temper!), blamed us for the front desk's mistake, and tried to change his story later when we proved it. We felt so attacked, and were far from home with nowhere else to go. This was days after Hurricane Sandy, and all other hotels were booked. We will not be back. So disappointed :(

I stay at this hotel mainly becuase of the proximity to my place of employment. There are other more expensive options in Manhattan but my stays are usually a few days. The beds are comfortable, rooms clean.

I don't usually bother with the breakfast. If I do it is usually a boiled egg, slice of toast and some juice. It is usually way too crowded in the small space set up to dine.

Elevator is slow. I often use the stairs when possible. Rooms are small but I don't spend too much time in the room.

I've been stayting at this property since they opened in 2003 and they have made some improvements. However, it could be better.

Staff is courtious

This is a good, safe and affortable. The staff was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The room was very small but clean. The Subway was very close and easy access. There was a deli was located right of the corner by the Inn with good food. The breakfast was good but in a very small area. I would stay there again on our next trip to New York.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights this past weekend, and we couldn't believe that anyone had anything bad to say about this hotel. We stayed on the ground floor (which is cheaper), in a room with one king bed. Yes the room was small, but for the price of the hotel, what more could you ask for? It's clean, the beds are comfortable, staff is friendly, breakfast was decent and the proximity to the subway all combines to make this hotel great. I would recommend it to friends and family, and would definitely stay there again. We had a fantastic time!!

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night only, so it's probably not much of experience, but I'll share it anyway:) well, to cut a long story short: it's nice. A comfortable bed, new furniture, dragon-blowing hair dryer, and clothing iron and board (which we didn't need, but it was a pleasant surprise nevertheless) - altogether a good place to stay for 100 USD per night (booked via Priceline). I wouldn't say the neighbourhood is unsafe (as others mentioned here) or really noisy, but the dumpster is right under the window, that's true.
Subway station, however, is 5 minutes walk away, and that's a pretty good advantage. And yes, the staff (all Indian guys as far as I can tell) was extremely friendly!

We picked this hotel to be able to access the subway easily, and it is great for that. Only about 2 blocks to the station. The hotel itself is a very well done Comfort Inn. Staff is very helpful, friendly. Rooms are small, but very clean, comfortable bed, good linen and pillows Bathroom and towels are also clean, Fixtures, furniture, everything is in good shape, not shabby. In room heat/AC works well. Good, well tended breakfast bar. Able to get into Manhattan quickly and only pay a reasonable price. The area around the hotel is industrial, so that means very few retail businesses and very few places to eat: a couple sandwich shops, a Chinese buffet and pizza shop, but all good. Also no decent place to go for a walk. Also, you can hear all the trains and cars, but it is sort of like 'white noise'. So this hotel works well as a good place to sleep and access Manhattan or Queens

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. I booked it via Agoda for 70 USD per night. I wasn't expecting much and i was positively surprised. Very clean and conviniently located. The hair dryer in my room broke down and got instantly replaced. As others mentioned the breakfast area is small but i never had a problem with finding a seat. My only complain is that the heating system is noisy. It won't affect you if you go in the warmer months. Great place if you are on a budget.
