The hotel is conveniently situated within a couple of blocks of the Nostrand Avenue A & C subway. Service to Manhattan is frequent and rapid. Also convenient to JFK. The hotel is located in a pretty down at heel area and you will walk past bags of rubbish on the short walk to the hotel from subway. If you're not too bothered by this, the hotel itself makes up for it. I have seen it rated as a 2.5 star, but it's much better than that. Bowl of fruit in lobby, free NY Times and USA Today, free breakfast of admittedly modest quality, free internet in room, coffee maker, fridge and microwave. Large TV with great choice of channels. Overall great value at the price. Friendly and helpful reception staff. I would avoid rooms overlooking street (Atlantic Avenue) as LIRR train passes by on overhead bridge and there can be a lot of other traffic noise also
