Pros: Able to park car safely. Near Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Sunnyside, etc. Also, hotel provides free transportation to subway.
Quiet, clean. Staff friendly and polite. Breakfast above average. Stayed on a Saturday night. Only awoken once by people entering their rooms on our floor, but they were inaudible once in their rooms. We did not use the free transport to train station. Cannot report if it leaves every thirty minutes, as promised.

Good location for tourism
Posted Jan 16, 2013
Pros: Price and convenience about location
Location: Good to tourism if you are not worried about amenities at the hotel.
Located at queens, near train station. But don´t worry, you don´t need to drive or walk to get there. The hotel will provide a free shuttle to and from the station from 6am to 10pm.. Even if you need the service after 10pm it will be just 10 dollars. Don´t expend money in a fancy hotel if you want to visit NY... You will expend only 6 or 7 hours sleeping in your room...

Nice stay, however.....

Pros: Offered breakfast
Cons: No whirlpool
Location: Long walk to train
Nice and quiet stay. 10-15 minute walk from nearest train station, however there was a nearby bus stop and a free shuttle bus (last bus at 10:00pm). Didn't get to try the breakfast so cannot review the food. Lots of good eats that will deliver which was nice. I give it 3 stars only because ad said whirlpool and there was non in my room. :)

Clean room, Great price

Pros: SUV took us wherever we wanted to go (had to pay)
Cons: bad area
How can so many people complain when this is one of the least expensive hotels in the area? If you want a 5 star stay, prepare to spend 5x as much. You get what you pay for; we got more than we expected for paying so little.

Could've been so good... but wasn't

Pros: Location was acceptable, price was reasonable, and view can be great.
Cons: Not clean. Staff was unfriendly and apathetic. Lots of noise from street traffic.
Location: In an industrial area. 15 minute walk from subway.
This hotel had a few things going for it. Location is a 15 minute walk, or a free shuttle ride, away from the subway. Free parking, breakfast, and internet was included in the price. I can overlook the unfriendly staff, the dated decor, and the busted furniture, but the level of cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The carpets seemed like they have not seen a steam cleaner in years, and the hair clogging in the drain of my shower never was removed, no matter how many times I asked. The beds and pillows were the most uncomfortable I've ever found in a hotel room. The springs dug into your back, the pillows were lumpy, and the blankets were exceedingly thin. The shuttle service was a little erratic, so there were times where we just walked to and from the Subway. Even at night we felt very safe. Because the hotel was located in an industrial area, there were always people working in the area at all hours. That being said, because there was always activity, the noise level was quite high at night. If you are lucky enough to have a room facing Manhattan, you will get quite the view through the dirty window. The other side of the building faces a cemetery. I booked this hotel because the price and location. Location was acceptable, but for me lack of cleanliness is a deal breaker. Pay the extra, and stay somewhere else. This hotel could use a major overhaul. It has so much potential, but sadly, it is wasted.

Okay if you're on a budget and like walking

Pros: Price wasn't too bad
Cons: Travel to and from subway stop, customer service wasn't great
Location: Far from subway, Safe & multi-ethnic area
I am in my early twenties, two years removed from college, and visited here with a buddy for the weekend to spend time in Manhattan. This hotel is a bit off the beaten track and is a 20-25 minute walk from the Purple Subway line that is only a 10-15 minute ride to get into Manhattan. The hotel advertised a shuttle to and from the line, but had strange restrictions - won't pick you up before you check in, won't drop you off after you check out, and limits you to one ride per day. I was at first worried about the safety of the location, but after talking with locals I felt better about the area. The rooms and bathroom were fairly clean, but not spotless or new by any means. All in all, for the price I saved money by not staying in Manhattan, but spent a lot of time traveling to and from the hotel. It was an okay stay, and I'd do it again with a buddy, but I'd probably spend the extra $50+ per night to stay closer to or in the city if I went with my girlfriend or someone like that. Hope this helped!

Pros: The large room, comfortable bed, drop-off service to subway.
Cons: The receptionist, the high price of the room, the small dining area.
The hotel's location is very inconvenient, out on LIC, but to the hotel's credit they offer a car service to drop their guests off and pick them up later from the nearest subway station (approx half hour walk if you want to hoof it). The #7 train takes about 15 mins to Grand Central, so easy access to Manhattan. We found the day-time receptionist to be surly and unhelpful, but thankfully the night-shift replacement was always helpful and courteous. The hotel offers a breakfast of scrambled eggs, bagels, donuts etc within a short time-frame in a small dining area so it's always crowded and somewhat desperate. Our standard twin room was big and comfortable, which suited us as we had a lot of luggage and needed the extra space.

The room is a little bit small, but you get all you need for a fair inexpensive price. The location is perfect between queens and manhattan. Overall we were pleased to stay one night there.

A Big Disappointment
Posted Jan 11, 2013
Pros: A couple of members of the staff were very pleasant and did the most that they were empowered to do.
Cons: Everything else.
Location: Located across the street from a grave yard. Old building and needs to be renovated.
The hotel appears to be a very old school building and it showed on the inside of the hotel from the lobby to the rooms. Every electrical outlet was lose, rugs were very old and the furniture loked like 2nd hand furniture. While watching television, I was forced to view Payment Advisory notices claiming that the Dish Network bill was overdue and when I spoke with the front desk they advised me that there was nothing that the could do about it. I don't know but What About Pay the Bill?!?!?!? Hot water pressure was week. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I got the impression that the owners also lived in the hotel because a couple of the housekeepers were always seen talking outside of one of the rooms on the first floor with the family inside of the room. I wish I would have realized that I would have had the opportunity to post pictures because I sure would have uploaded a bunch.
Very homey, Homey!

We were very pleased with the room . It was spacious and clean. The fridge was very cold which was great. The room felt like we were at a Band B somewhere in the country. The breakfast spread was the best one yet offering real scrambled eggs and two waffle irons . Would look for this hotel the next time .
