“Consumer beware”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Having made a reservation over 6 months in advanced, I call the day before arrival to confirm the room for late arrival and the bed configuration. Imagine my dismay when we arrived at 11:20 p.m. to find our room had been cancelled. They do not charge your credit card when you make the reservation ... but they do not wait until you check in either. We were not informed of this and they tried to charge our card the morning we were to arrive. Because they had an old number from our initial reservation, they just cancelled our reservation. The hotel was full when we arrived and the hotel desk clerk was unhelpful, to say the least. When we contacted the 800 number, we were told a La Quinta in NJ had availability. Before driving there at that time of night, I called the hotel directly and was informed they had no rooms either. When we complained to customer service after our return home, we were sent a form letter that included "We are concerned that we did not exceed your expectations during your last visit to our hotel." Exceed our expectations? We never had the opportunity to stay!

This hotel is very close to subway which is a huge plus for a city like New York. The rates are reasonable considering it is 25 mins from Times Square by Subway. When it comes to comfort, the amenities provided are basic but sufficient. The bed and bathroom were clean. The continental breakfast lacks variety though.There is a 24 hr McDonalds adjacent to the hotel. Overall the stay was good.

The good:

-Less than 200 per night let me save about $100 per night compared to what I would have spent in Manhattan.
- A lot less noisy and crowded than Manhattan. I do enjoy getting away from the crowds every night.
-2 blocks from subway.
-3 surrounded by restaurants, CVSs, Mcdonalds, and many others.
-Refrigerator included in the room.
-Nice fruit shop nearby.
-This is my second time in this hotel. No complaints. I get what I expected.
-$40 taxi fare from JFK. You can also take the subway.

The bad
-Average hotel.
-Small bathroom.
-Don't try the breakfast. Walk a couple of blocks and get yourself a decent coffee.
-You do get noise from the subway. I have no problem to deal with it.
-Staff do speak english, just fine tune your ear. They just do their job. No complaints, no good words either.
-Old TV. Very few tv channels.
-No parking.
-No nice views.
-Average lobby.
-Average/poor business center.

Room Tip: Get a high floor. Avoid the first floor it vibrates a lot when the subway passes.

La Quinta LIC is a good, clean hotel, in an excellent location, near the train, and many restaurants and shops. The hotel offers quality service and fairly big room for NYC at a reasonable price. Breakfast is included, which is also convenient. LaQuinta could improve its fitness centre, which is in a very small room with 1 tred mill & 1 weights machine, and offer some vending machines.

My brother and I stayed there recently. It was spotlessly clean, spacious (for New York), a nice small hotel very close to the #7 train 40th St Station. While the main street, Queens Blvd, is very commerical and industrial, any block in any direction is residential, pleasant, with apartment houses, duplex houses, trees and small local stores on the other avenues around it. It is also inexpensive for New York, and yet you can be at Times Square in 12 minutes. It was a perfect budget choice, clean inexpensive and convenient (for not being in Manhattan). It is also easy to get here from LaGuardia and JFK Airports by public transport, and accessible to Newark Airport also by public transport. Also, when other slightly closer-in nearby hotels have higher seasonal prices, this one is even a better bargain.

I found this hotel a few months ago when my flight was cancelled. Last week i stayed for three nights. The staff is professional and friendly. It is a clean hotel, the breakfast isn't amazing but it is there and worthwhile. When you walk out the front door you have a wonderful view of the Chrysler Building and the 7 train has a stop just a bit more than a block away, takes you to Times Square and Grand Central. The neighborhood is pleasant and feels safe. It is really hard to beat this hotel for a budget conscious stay in NYC. I plan to return in August.

This hotel is in a great location for easy access to the subway. The room with the king sized bed and sofa bed was a nice size. We stayed 5 nights. Service/employees were fair. No one was overly helpful and it seemed like it was just a job to them; didn't go above and beyond to assist with our needs. We reserved a room for 3 people, yet 4 out of 5 days received only 2 towels and 1 washcloth and had to call down for additional towels/washclothes each day. The breakfast had good hours, but was always over-crowded and did not have enough tables and chairs. The breakfast menu consisted of limited cereal selections, bread/bagels/english muffins/doughnuts, pre-cooked scrambled egg 'patties,' saugsage, and occasionally bananas. It definitely lacked freshness, variety, and flavor.
