We looked at staying in Manhattan but prices were cheaper here and the hotel is 3 mins away from the 21st Metro Station that gets you into Manhattan in minutes.
The area is semi commercial so not the prettiest but the hotel is clean, beds were comfortable and offered free wifi (patchy in places) and continental breakfast which can get quite busy.
There is not much around the hotel, a couple of food places not fancy(the chinese take away being the best option) there is also a laundry 2 mins away. Jag at reception helped us with take away menus.
We actually enjoyed traveling into Manhattan doing all the tourist activities and coming back to the quiet of Long Island City
If you are on a budget this is a good alternative, stay here in 3 star comfort (nicer than some of the one star hotels in Manhattan).
