We weren't planning on staying the night in the NYC area but found ourselves roaming around Manhattan quite late and just needed to find a room to get some sleep. So we got this room on hotwire and what a mistake. We should have just spent the extra money on a better hotel in the city. This place is convenient, I suppose, if you're planning to do something in the middle of Long Island. Not so much if you are in the area to do the typical NYC things. Was about a 45 minute drive from Manhattan. The room was overly hot and the A/C didn't really do anything but blow stale air around the tiny room. Floors were unlevel, which wasn't a big deal, but that and the dumpsters and construction trash blocking the window further enhanced the feeling that we were staying in a dump. Was traveling with friends and the single double bed in the room(requested a cot - they were an extra 15$ and then turned out that there weren't any available anyway), combined with the stale damp air made for a horrible night sleep. I wouldn't normally complain about this stuff, or give a poor rating, but we paid over $160 for one night and it was so not worth it. I guess the one positive was that the internet was complimentary and had a strong consistent signal.
Lesson learned, will book a higher star rating in the city next time.
