This hotel is perfectly described in the reviews -- and it's current 3 1/2 star rating is very accurate. I like the place. I like staying in Long Island City -- I think more visitors to NYC should consider it, since it's SO convenient to Midtown and so much cheaper. I also think there are better motels in LIC, and you should probably only pick this one if it's cheaper than the other ones which are rated 3 1/2 stars and better.
Some new observations (I won't repeat the recent comments):
Free parking is easy on the street in front of the hotel. I probably wouldn't park an expensive car, it's pretty lonely out there, but any normal car should be fine. Most travelers, of course, will not have cars, and this hotel is super-convenient for subway access.
The free breakfast is standard-issue Choice Hotel USA quality. Not sure how many travelers stay in USA Choice Hotels, but if you have, you'll recognize the breakfast. It's fine but not really good. On the negative side, the powdered eggs were cold. On the positive side, the bagels and donuts were bought fresh from local vendors, so significantly better than the processed, mass-produced junky breads usually available in a Choice Hotel.
Train noise is weird. Annoying -- especially since the rest of the neighborhood is so quiet. But not noisy enough to keep us from falling asleep, or waking us up. The rooms also didn't seem to have any views of Manhattan. I've stayed in other LIC hotels that had wonderful views. Hotel had some other strange noises, like from the heater and the plumbing. Again, annoying, but not very bothersome. Rooms are small, but bigger than you usually get at similar hotels in Manhattan. Overall, a 3-star hotel that you could easily stay in, but probably not one to particularly prefer.
