“Clean, but uncomfortable sleep”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

The hotel rooms are clean and well appointed, updated and nicely decorated, sort of what I expect from the Red Roof ads. But beyond that this was not at all the experience I have had at other places in this chain. Lobby looks like an abandoned bus station with a single couch and an unstocked vending machine. Best thing is that it is close to the airport. The beds however are awful -- rock hard, no sort of give, combined with a single so soft pillow that is almost useless. No extras in the closet. The front desk person when I checked in was nice enough, but they had lost my reservation and seemed to want to argue about that rather than just offering me an open room that was exactly what I had reserved. We only took the room because we were so exhausted and not at all interested in finding an alternative late at night -- and there is little else right around here to choose from.

rriflushing, Manager at Red Roof Inn Flushing New York - LaGuardia Airport, responded to this review, 17 December 2012
Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing the experience you had with the cleanliness of your rooms. Our hotel opened two years ago and we try our very best to keep up the conditions of the property. Our lobby is small compared to many traditional lobbies. We have 33 rooms at this hotel and space is very limited. We are however in the process of renovating our lobby so it feels warmer and more inviting. Our beds are only two years old. Some guests find our beds very comfortable but I do apologize that you did not have a good night’s rest. We are in the process of replacing our pillows as we have had feedback from guests like you about their softness. We keep iron and ironing boards at the front desk. Hangers are available in the closet for guest convenience. I want to apologize about the level of service you received at the front desk. I will work with the staff to ensure that we never argue with a customer and try to accommodate them the best we can. We hope that in the future when you are in NY again, you will give us the opportunity to serve you better.
Regards,
Lily Yuan, General Manager

This hotel is close to the airport, but there is no shuttle. The taxi ride is about $15 each way.
The lobby is spare with only a black couch strewn with Chinese language newspapers, and a vending machine.

It looked as if the bathroom in the room had been recently updated. The rest of the furniture was a bit worn.I only stayed about 8 hours, but it was quiet and better than sleeping at the airport.

If you are in need of a decent accommodation in New York at affordable price while being not too far from the City Centre, then this is the place to be in. Great safe location, very helpful front desk, decent and very clean rooms- all the ingredients for a pleasant stay. Subway station just a couple of blocks away that takes you to Times Square in about half an hour. Trains run very frequently. The only area where a little change desired is the breakfast menu which offers the same items everyday. On the whole highly recommended.

I was stranded at the airport over night and the only room I could find was at this hotel. The only room they had was a suite. It was $300 for the night. I have paid less for a room in the Theater District. The room was disgusting: hair in the shower and on the floor, nail polish and scuff marks on the sheets, larger burn slash on the bed spread and a tissue box with one tissue.
The only good thing was the very patient man at the front desk,

Room Tip: Don't go

We stayed at this hotel in October 2011 for 2 nights. We were looking for an "inexpensive" (for NYC standards) hotel in NYC and found this Red Roof Inn in Flushing, Queens. Very good value for New York, large rooms, great view, nice staff, the location is OK, not too far from the Subway station that takes you into Manhattan (it's a half hour ride though!) Overall, no complaints whatsoever!

Excellent location to everywhere, 45 min subway to Time Square, walk distance to China town with so many authentic Chinese restaurants. Parking is across the street with low rate $15/day, hotel is clean, the facility is a typical motel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

Travelled with son for one overnight stay before flying overseas. We arrived at 11 PM from LaGuardia. Taxi driver did not know location of this hotel but we had the address and a map. Cost was about $20US for about a 15 minute ride.

No airport shuttle available to the hotel. But, the hotel provides a convenient, flat rate taxi from the hotel to JFK for $22US or to LaGuardia. It is a Chinese operated taxi but the driver speaks English. (I speak Chinese so had no problem).

PROS: Got reduced room rate at senior's rate (aged 50 and up). This is a basic hotel located in Chinatown, but quiet, clean and comfortable and popular with Asians (judging from guests in the breakfast room). Our room, with two full (double), pillow top beds was spacious - lots of room for luggage. Room looked just like hotel photos. So, I do not understand the previous reviews about small rooms (maybe a one-bed room?). Flooring is wood with area rug around beds.

You must insert room card to get "power." This process is very common in hotels throughout Europe and Asia to save energy. So, room may be hot when you return.

Air conditioning worked well. Free WIFI slow but OK. Free local and free US long distance calls a real bonus. Microwave and small in-room fridge also good (and clean).

Breakfast is basic continental with boiled eggs, and some items had "run out" by 9 AM. Breakfast room is very bare bones, clean, no decor - so just eat and run.

Staff stored our bags in a spare room adjacent to the check-in desk at no charge. We took the #7 metro/subway (or called "train") into Manhattan to Grand Central Station. The last stop on the line is Times Square. The walk to the metro is 10 minutes and the trip took about 45 minutes. Train was very packed even during non peak periods. The area is quite safe during daytime. Prince Street from front door of hotel looks commercial - warehouses and parking lot across street.

CONS: Too far to Manhattan and tourist attractions. We stayed at the Red Roof Inn, Manhattan on a previous visit. (Very good). That location is more convenient for sightseeing but at a higher price.

Lobby does not look like photo. There is no real lobby and staff at check in are quite casual but helpful and their English is good. There is no "concierge" but staff can provide good information for getting around.

Our room did not have a balcony but we did have a view of Manhattan and LaGuardia airport.
