We chose this hotel because of its cheap rate and close proximity to Manhattan. We booked a two queen bed room and when we checked in found out that these rooms do not have a view of Manhattan. Apparently only some one bedded rooms have views, so be careful when making your booking if you want a view of the skyline. The hotel is not as new as some of the other hotels in the vicinity. While our room was mostly clean, we did find all sorts of hair on the mattress protector upon close inspection. Not very good first impression! Towels are very rough. Not enough vanity space in the bathroom. Wifi and breakfast included. Breakfast was typical hotel chain food. Breakfast area was filthy with only one of the two pancake machines working properly. Hotel was noticeably very hot too. They must have switched on the general heating at full blast. We had to open our room windows and that was not enough to cool the room so we switched on the air-conditioner......all this in winter.
The hotel is very close to La Guardia. We took a bus from La Guardia to Astoria Ditmars metro station and then hop on the metro to Queensboro Plaza metro station. Walk one and a half block to the hotel. If you have lots of luggages or heavy bags, then you might find entering and exiting this station hard because of a couple of flights of stairs. This station will get you into Manhattan in no time and at night the walk back to the hotel is a bit dark and quiet but we felt quite safe. The best thing is the petrol station right next to the hotel which is great for picking up water, milk or all sorts of snacks.
This hotel is great for location and price only but not sure if we will stay again or recommend to friends.
