So I arrived to a smooth check in at this no frills moderately priced hotel while on business. I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face for the night. After I finished and turned around to leave the bathroom, I slipped and fell in a large puddle of water. The sink had been leaking while...

This was a very pleasant surprise. No, it's not a 5 star hotel, but yes, it's worth 5 stars here, as it is an excellent value, it's quiet, the bed is comfortable, the shower great, and the room large by NYC standards. The location is about a 3 or 4 minute walk from the F train. Two stops in under...

Excellent service- very kind and helpful- thank you. Clean and safe, no noise on the 10th floor. View of Manhattan is worth the price. The neighborhood was disturbing at first but in fact it felt safe to walk alone. There is a supermarket next door. Two subway stops (5 min and 15 min from hotel) go to Midtown Manhattan but...

Room with lots of amenities (fridge a.o.), proper wifi, decent shower, comfy bed, nice view of the city. Decent choice in food and drinks at the breakfast area. Very friendly and helpfull staff (especially Sultana, the breakfast lady). Breakfast area can be crowded, but taking your breakfast to your room is no problem. Not much going on in the surrounding...

Located in 40 min away from JFK airport by subway, the hotel is a good & economical choice for accessing into Manhattan (20 min by subway). The room is clean and tidy with comfortable bed, hot breakfast in the morning was sufficient. The area is acceptable except it is quite dark at night for the 5 min walk from subway...

The Sleep Inn in Long Island City is part of the Choice Hotels chain. It is a good hotel located close to the Queens Bridge subway station which brings you straight to Manhattan Times Square area (the F-line). The rooms are nice and clean and certainly worth the money considering the much higher prices in Manhattan. Certainly a good alternative....

Yes this hotel is not located in Manhattan, however it is located very close to a train station that will take you to Times Square in around 10mins and you will be saving heaps of money. The rooms were spacious and even included a free breakfast, yes the area around the hotel does not look the best, we can home...

Hotel is very well situated, close to the subway. Room was clean. Breakfast is included. There is an ATM in the lobby. Nice view on Manhattan (may depend on your room). Unfortunately, there is nothing acceptable to eat in the neighborhood.

We had a king room - it wasn't fancy but was clean and had all of the amenities we needed. We especially appreciated the mini-fridge. The bed was comfortable and the temperature in the room was nicely adjusted. Sleep Inn's staff was very nice and friendly. It was our first trip to NYC and they gave us good, helpful advice....
