One-night was greatPosted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Affordable Close to the metro Clean Large rooms Free breakfast Free parking Decent area Nice view of the city from the street
Cons: Staff attitude?
Location: Decent location, but might be a little scary for some. Close to the metro. The only "thing to do" that we know of is the cemetery, but may be more
We spent one night in the area and it was fine. We walked the roughly 1.5 miles to and from the metro (A line) frequently, even at night and we were in no danger. The area immediately surrounding the place seems a little sketchy, but it's really just industrial/commercial. Once you walk the 2-3 blocks and pass residential areas they are quite nice, actually. What's nice, however, is that you don't HAVE to walk; the hotel offers a free taxi to-and-from the metro between 8am (I think?) and 10 pm. There's a beautiful cemetery immediately across the main street from the hotel. The room was spacious for the price, and very clean, which one may not expect because the exterior of the building is a little older and rough-around-the-edges. Free parking! Always a plus. And we got lucky to have a view of my car from the window. My ONLY complaint about the place is that the woman who checked me in gave me a really unpleasant look every time I asked a question (like "should I park in front or in back?", "Which direction is the metro", "What time is check out?"), but the other staff I encountered were all perfectly fine.

Excellent for visiting graves at Calvary Cemetery.Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: Room with a view. Pleasant and helpful staff. Clean.
Cons: Cleaner windows.
Location: Visit the lovely chapel in the cemetery. Just go down the cemetery entrance near the hotel (take a left in front of the hotel to get to the entrance.
Quite satisfactory. I visited graves at Calvary Cemetery. I always have trouble adjusting hotel air conditioners to adjust them to a comfortable temp. I had a room with a view of the Manhattan skyline which I enjoyed.

Convenient hotel for visiting ManhattanPosted Jun 11, 2014
Pros: Free parking, free breakfast, good location.
Cons: Bathrooms seemed old. Mattresses old as well.
Location: Nothing much near by of interest, but could get to subway easily, so that was a plus.
Hotel was a 15 minute walk to the subway and had a free shuttle to the subway as well that you could use once per day. Rooms were okay, clean and suitable for sleeping. Free breakfast was pretty decent. I'd recommend a King bed rather than a double. They don't have Queen beds apparently. Staff was accommodating and didn't have any issues there. Overall, not fancy, but good location for getting to the downtown and the free parking was a plus. The walk to the subway was through what seemed like a good neighborhood, so no issues there.

Good valuePosted Jun 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Accommodating staff - nice spacious room and a decent breakfast - elevator frequently reeks of smoke but staff will spray upon request. Provides mediocre shuttle service to elevated subway stop which is better than none.
