New, very clean, flat-screen TV, free continental breakfast (with excellent donuts), good free wireless Internet, comfy beds, two subway stops (F train) to Manhattan, with subway half a block away, good prices (far, far, far better than in Manhattan). Any down sides?
As others have stated, this is a gritty neighborhood. Storage facility across the street; large housing project half a block away, Also the only three nearby restaurants are gross, and there is very limited off-street parking (and except on weekends, street cleaning makes on-street parking a substantial chore). However, the friendly staff will be glad to provide menus of restaurants that deliver, and while the neighborhood may be gritty, I don't consider it at all dangerous (you are on a major, busy thoroughfare -- but the rooms are quiet). In other words, if you aren't driving, you're experienced in big cities, and you'd like to save a few bucks, this is a great and highly recommended option.
