Very much a budget hotel. Not within walking distance of anything really, mostly an industrial area. Kinda far ride on the subway into the city. If price is the most important concern, then this hotel is adequate. No trendy furnishings, old school style hotel furniture.

A fairly quiet backwater part of town, and a slightly rundown but pretty clean hotel. Staff was friendly enough (for New Yorkers), and really no complaints at all. It's only about a 20 minute walk to the subway, although they seem to offer a shuttle service (never saw one, though). For the price, this is certainly a decent place to... More

Nothing fantastic but honest. The breakfast is below average; the gym too. Rooms are ok, nice to have shuttle to subway but this one is about 10 mntes walking.

Horrible hotel over priced not in good location rooms too small. The staffs where not friendly and not willing to guide and help the clients. The worst part was the breakfast, it was in a small room where everyone have to cramp in. They give us disposable plate and cup with which we really don't feel like eating. And the... More

Very nice staff. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy. What more do you need in new York, you only sleep in your room, and tour new York by day. The shuttle only runs free from 8 a.m. To 10 p.m. Otherwise they charge you 10 for the ride. Yellow taxi is only 4.60 to 40th and lowry station. We did... More

We stayed here for 2 nights visiting New York City. The location was pretty good, about 3 blocks from the subway station and right off the highway. Parking was free, which was a plus. The room was large but there'd was a leak in the corner. The room was pretty clean. Some of the pillows smelled like dirty hair. The... More

We stayed a Friday and Saturday night. We had reserved until Tuesday. The location was really good for the price. The area was a little rough but it was very close to the subway.

Stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of September and I would recommend this hotel for independent travellers who are not hoping for a 'Central' location. The hotel is located in Queens and is directly opposite a large cemetery. There is a freeway less than 200m away but don't let any of this put you off.....! First I'll discuss the... More
