Stayed here a few years ago for the convenience of visiting my family in Bayside....it was okay. This time, it was a waste....run down and unfriendly staff. Wouldn't stay here again no matter how convenient. In my three week stay, they had to change my key card four times for not working. Also, my room went un-serviced three times --...

I had an early morning pickup at JFK so I stayed here to position myself for the morning. I was delighted to find out that just a few blocks I could find a wide variety of dining options and watering holes. There was even a lively late night bakery open where I was able to grab dessert at 11:00pm! I...

This is a nice little independent hotel in a safe commercial area of Flushing. We very much enjoyed the room with a large jacuzzi and even an individual steam unit- great for relaxing. We were visiting relatives in the area and found this to be a great base. It was nice to be able to park the car in their...

We chose this hotel for the price and the distance from a music festival held at CitiField. There is parking onsite which was huge plus having driven to the city in my own car. The rooms wreaked of cigarette smoke and we had a non smoking room. Also, our room was right next to the "outdoor patio" area if thats...

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback. We are glad to hear that you had a nice stay and are a bit concerned as to how/why anyone was on the "outdoor patio" area as that area is only open to the public during morning continental breakfast service (6:30-10:00am). That area is not really a...

The hotel is near many good restaurants on Northern Blvd. and Bell Blvd. Transportation to Manhattan by the L.I. Railroad is within a few blocks of the hotel. Also, the bus in front of the hotel will take you to the Main Street subway station which will leave you in the center of Manhattan in about 30 minutes. When you...

I spent one night in this hotel. The front desk service was cordial and helpful with my requests. The king size bed was very comfortable. The room was small compared to what I was used too but it met my requirements. The water in the shower was refreshing and the right pressure. The fresh scent of the towels was a...

This is a terrible hotel, period. The room reeked of cigarette smoke, so they offered to put in an ozone machine, which smelled even worse. Breakfast is a bad joke. The place just sold for $16 million, and the new owners plan to add a floor and completely renovate. Until they do -- stay anywhere but here!

Please don't stay here. The staff are rude. One lady who may live there walks around in her pajamas and hangs out at the front desk. The air conditioners are noisy and turn on and off all night. The room we stayed at we had to walk down an incline to get to and then walk down another 2 steps...
