"Poor Costumer Service"
There were many negative aspects of the hotel. It was location in an old industrial park in Queens. It is a 10-minute walk to the subway station which in day time its okay but at night it’s a different story with safety. The hotel front desk staff did not know how to do their job and rude and not consumer friendly. When my friend and I were checking […] in the lady was still on her cell phone while she was checking us in. They have a shuttle service operated by limo service company and I was only there for one night and we missed the shuttle by a few minutes that took you to the subway stop. My friend and I ran to the subway station since needed to be in the city at a certain time. When we need a ride back to the hotel the front desk lady told us the company would be there in 10 minutes. It was a very cold and windy night and the shuttle never showed up and we called 15 minutes later and asked where it was the lady at the hotel was no help and actually started to argue. There were many calls placed every 5 minutes to see where the shuttle was and many times they never picked up. 30 minutes after were supposed to be picked up the front desk picked up and we were told "we have no control over the limo service its the holidays” We ended up taking an expensive cab ride back to the hotel. The next morning we were told we would not be eligible for a cab ride back to hotel since we were checking out later that day. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone visiting NYC.

"Needs plumbing work!"
The bathtub didn't drain overnight after scalding my daughter. Heard another visitor complain about their bath area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too far. Bad front desk."
Some weird noise from the tv. Bad maintaince on the machine. Staffs at the front desk were horrible, kind of. The hotel is way too far away from anywhere!Genuine Expedia guest review
enjoyed staying in this hotel, it has large and comfortable rooms, free Wifi and tasty breakfasts.Genuine Expedia guest review
They would only give one towel at a time, and only stocked one set of towels in the room to begin with. This was a room with a king sized bed and jacuzzi. I had to call for towels 3 times in 24 hours.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Horrible location with fake shuttle service"
Horrible location for subway station. They advertize that there is a free shuttle to and from Subway station. First of all, it is not available if you don't sit and wait for 30 mins at least and then they won't drop you off after checking out, forget about pick up before you check in because in both circumstances you are not staying at the Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonable price and ok all together"
Their 4-individual occupancy room has two double beds that were kind of smallish to fit two adults + two kids. Other than that the hotel is good for the price. It is 10 minute drive from Manhatan which is very convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
I spend around two hundred days a year in hotels all ovwr the country and this is by far the worst one I've ever been in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Well kept upon entering the room smell fresh and clean. Loads of privacy very comfy. Only complains are Wifi wasn't great, maybe I was doing something wrong could upgrade on the television. Overall nice cozy getaway spot.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was dirty. The room and hall ways were dirty. The elevator was so slow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Matbe good for businesmen or young school boys and"
Very old no maintenance lobby?dirty,restaurant for beakfast? horrible. The only thing I love were the people in the reception.Very helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
) They lost the password to their Business Center, 2) Bathtub drain was broken and they wouldn't fix it, 3) my hair dryer was broken, 4) they don't have full sized pillows and the ones they have offer about as much support as a T-shirt, 5) They don't have comforters on the bed, just a single, extremely lightweight blanket-like thing, with a shawl spread […] over it for good measure. 6) Their elevator was calibrated wrong so it takes FOREVER and of course I was on the top floor. 7) They have no central air (or didn't turn it on) so I would be sweating by the time I got out of the building even when it was 59 degrees F outside! 8) They only have one elevator which is constantly being used by the maids with their carts, 9) Their free toothbrush was so flimsy the handle would bend 180 degrees when it was in my mouth. 10) Their free combs are too big for your pocket . 11) The maid won't touch anything without your leaving a note reading FOR MAID - that includes puddles of water in the bathroom and pillow cases on the floor. I honestly wondered if they even came some days even if I tipped them. 11) The light switch only turns on one little light and you have to go around and turn on about 4 other lights for the place not be dark. 12) If you call for a cab they will call the most expensive cab in town who will try to rip you off first thing (wanting $35 to go where others charge $20).

"would stay there again."
Good deal for the money stayed in one of the end rooms it was very spacious. My sister in law stayed in a room in the middle of the hotel and it was small. I was very pleased with my room!Genuine Expedia guest review
When I arrived at 3:30 p.m., the desk manager was a bit rude and obnoxious. I booked the room in May as a smoking room and he acted like it was some big problem. He had us wait 1/2 hour before the room was cleaned up and even then, more or less ignored us. We had to ask him whether the room was ready instead of him informing us. Other than this, the […] hotel could stand a much bigger breakfast area as there were not enough seats for everyone and some had to stand. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awkward Stay, close to Airport"
As soon as we entered the lobby we had to walk through a confrontation between 2 guests, a maid accused of stealing, and another maid translating for the maid who didn't speak English. It was a very awkward situation. Other than that incident that made us cautious of if our things were safe, the room was decent, but the location was kind of sketchy. […] I recommend only staying here at the least one night if you need a cheap hotel the night before you head to the LGA airport. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good price and conditions for a NY hotel, the walk to the subway is a little tedious but there are always cabs going by that you can flag down. Two females out and about in the city alone coming back at 2-3am and not once did we feel unsafe. There are cameras all around the building that the front desk can monitor. Yes there's a cemetary across the […] street but we didn't use that street walking at night so it didn't phase us. It's an older building so it's not 5 star immaculate but it doesn't smell horribly and it was clean. Every year we come to NYC for a weekend, we'd definitely consider staying at this hotel again.

"priced right for"
Hotel was very great for what we needed. Unfortunatley the train was not running the Saturday we needed to go to Manhatten Taxi drivers did not know how to find the hotel. The hotel was priced right for us very clean . most courteous service. The breafast was perfect for our needs, Light but good choices if one wanted more.Conventient to LGA and cruise […] ship.

Positives: Front desk let us check in early at no extra cost (so very appreciated!) decent room, comfortable (yet springy) bed, clean, free shuttle from subway to hotel until 10pm, nice breakfast with real scrambled, large NY bagels, and make-your-own waffels. A bit noisy, window was broken and wouldn't close all the way, slightly long walk through […] not-so-safe feeling area (though we, 2 girls, walked during daytime and felt safe).

"Average hotel, terrible location"
It's really not a comfortable walk from the hotel to the subway station. It's not that it's a bad area, per se. It's just not pedestrian friendly.Long distances through warehouses and closed businesses, really empty. We ended up cabbing back home every night, which offsets what we saved not staying closer in the first place. Asked for a king bed, got […] two doubles. Service was good, though.

"good value overall"
a/c in room was fine,but hallways,reception area and breakfast area very warm, uncomfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fine for overnight stay. Hotel is dated. Found stray hair on towel and toilet. Our solo bed was only a double, not a problem for us but may be for others. Breakfast had very good, full sized bakery items (just restocked at around 7:30), ran out quickly. Ample parking arriving at midnight on Friday night. We didn't use the shuttle but instead drove to […] within a block of the 61st st 7 line subway as we needed an elevator stop. That turned out to be much more convenient.

"Very friendly staff, clean and comfortable hotel."
We always enjoy staying at this hotel. It is close to all our destinations and the staff are always friendly and helpful. We plan on staying here whenever we visit the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ugly building. Better inside"
Breakfast is better then averege. Parking is tight but manageable. Place doesnt look lie much from outside but it is a good alternative to Manhattam. You get more for less. Nothing in immediate area for food. Walk to Queens Blvd and you will get anything you need. Place was clean. Ive stayed there twice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the subway"
I would not stay at this hotel again. They never understood that there were 4 of us staying in the room, and we had to ask for 2 extra towels every day...which they grudgingly gave us. The carpet in our room was filthy...bloodstains? The overall condition of the hotel was disrepair, old, and under construction. The "gym" was a very small closet with […] three machines stuffed inside with limited hours of use. Front desk staff was curt, bordering on impolite, and neither seemed to speak fluent english.

"Great stay in convenient neighborhood!"
The room was huge and the breakfast was great. The subway ride was maybe 20 minutes to Times Square. It was about a 15 minute walk back. Ask the front desk for a card of instructions on how to get to/from the subway. They also offer a free (+tip) car service to/from the subway until 10pm. I would definitely stay here again! I wish they served breakfast […] past 9am since we like to sleep in on vacation. :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"reasonable price for NYC"
fax service problematic.They did not have our reservation in place.Staff was not very helpfull.Made us call Hotels.com to request fax confirmation of our reservation.This took 40 minutes before we got keys to our room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very spooky, bad customer service."
Very spooky feeling, the room was not clean up yet when we got into the room ( have not clean anything at all as soon as we open the room at 4:30pm) the customer service was unfriendly which they push us to go somewhere else. They supposed pick us up at the subway, but they refused to come us up. They will pick up a customer only one round trip per […] day base on a lady in at the font desk told us. A house keeper had been knocked our door from 9am and every 30 minutes until 12pm. You may see something very interesting at night which it’s HUNTED HOTEL, don’t go there and highly not recommended.

"Best Western Review"
The hotel really could use some renovation, but overall was satisfactory for our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is across from the old cementery. Inside it's old and a little bit smelly- you can smell the cigarettes but there is a breakfast area with good food and the room is nice, clean and has a comfortable bed. I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to new York but very odd looking."
I was only there for two days. I would probably pay more to stay closer to time square.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location and great price"
The King Room is quite roomy, Much bigger than rooms in Manhattan. Getting to Manhattan is very easy by car or the train. Many restaurants a few blocks down. Room was clean, sheets were clean and the bathroom was ok, not great but ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great NYC hotel!"
The subway is about a mile away - not a bad walk at all and I never felt unsafe. The hotel also haa a shuttle that will pick you up from the subway, though I never used this. Staff was friendly and accommodating, room was nice (spacious for NYC, had a fridge and microwave, nice sized bathroom and decent shower). Right price and close to the city. The […] subway ride was about 15-20 mins to Times Square - not bad at all. Car service to LGA was $24 and easy. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good stay"
Glad to see there was new carpet on the floor. The room was quite large with 2 beds and the view was great. The walk to the hotel is too long and expecially when ther is nothing in the area for restaurants and shopping or entertainment,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price for New York City"
The Hotel allows early check in if rooms are available which is important since I normally fly the red eye. Other than that the rooms are clean and the price is better than anywhere else I have found. Subway is about a half mile walk or you can wait for the hotel car which is typically available every 15-20 minutes. If you are arriving by subway at […] night I recommend the 46th and Bliss station, it is much easier to hail a cab and is more populated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"It's a Best Western"
The location is good. Not a far walk from the Subway. Surrounding area was overall good. Staff was not 'cheery'. They work in a hospitality industry but cared very little to elevate the service of others. The towels were a poor quality as were the sheets. Rooms are a good size though. Stay if you want but don't expect much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonable but not exactly what it looked like"
Staff was responsive but not outgoing and did not really make one feel very welcome. Hotel was LONG WAY from Metro train stop, 7 blocks, and free half hourly pickup from Metro STOPS at 10 pm. This NOT GOOD. Whole hotel smells of smoke. There are no posted penalties for smoking. Breakfast was VERY GOOD but only served until 9 a.m. Neighborhood is totally […] industrial and 7 blocks from nearest train. Room was okay but air conditioning was OLD style and did not reduce humidity properly and bathtub was NOT CLEAN. We would not recommend hotel except for persons WITH A CAR.

No complaints, I checked in at 2 am and slept until check out at 12.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly staff, with comfortable rides to and from the subway. The breakfast was wonderful....All in all a very enjoyable experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
I walked to the hotel every night from the subway stop at 10pm or later. Never felt nervous. Safe quiet neighborhood convenient to Manhattan. Our beds were way too soft to my liking, but others may like them. Only one "shuttle" trip allowed per day (really a black car service), but it picks you up across the street from the subway and drops you off […] at the hotel. Limit of 4 max per car, though they prefer 3. The breakfast was very good, but the staff had a hard time keeping up. Get down there early before the donuts and bagels run out. Scrambled eggs were plentiful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Need to update the elevator. Way too small and way too slow. Everything else goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Quality at a Descent Price"
Hotels was in a great location not too far from the city. Beds were comfortable and the room was very spacious. The bathrooms could use updating but manageable. Its best not to get a room near the elevator because it tends to be very noisy at times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here for one night while in town for business. I enjoyed my stay. It's a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest subway station. The neighborhood is incredibly diverse and seemed relatively safe. My room had a nice view of Long Island City and the Midtown skyline. There was free internet and parking for those who need it. Computers are available, […] but only in 20 minute sessions and sometimes the internet on these public computers was down. Interestingly, the building was once a public school, and some features of this are still visible. The free breakfast was decent. The cleaning staff was very nice, but the front desk was a little less nice. Overall, I had an enjoyable stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Any port in a storm......."
The location was very convenient to my work which ranged from lower Manhattan to Brooklyn & LIC. The room had trash left over from a previous occupant and looked liked it had been a month or two since it was last vacumed. The elevator was not in service on arrival as a television production had taken over the hotel as a shooting location creating limited […] access and congestion of the street, parking lot, lobby, etc. with operating staff and equipment. The hotel called on the third day of my stay to inform me they were without water. Fortunately the city was able to correct this problem and restored service in a couple of hours. There was a couple who decided to stand outside my door 9pm arguing about their lovelife for about 45 min until I asked them to move on. The following morning the hall outside my door was filled with a pungent aroma reminiscent of my days in Amsterdam. I left for work at 6am and stopped to try the continental breakfast. The bagels were stale and the coffee was drinkable. I'll probably stay there again if the price is right and I run out of alternative options. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
