    The staff were very friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for me

    I felt that it was tired and dated - I booked a smoking room and was given a non smoking but they found me a smoking room very quickly.I have no complaints, in the end you get what you pay for.

    It is a cheaper hotel and it's near of the city. Subway station is 10 blocks away.

    Good location near city and Long Island. On site parking.

    Elevator is slow.Breakfast food is ok but could be upgraded.

    Large comfy beds and a faily quiet room ,Not to far a walk to the subway through an ok area to walk it takes around 15 to 20 minutes to get to Times Square on subway.

    Where it is located put us off at first, there is I beleive the largest cemetry in the area 40 yards from the front entrance. Though the room we had didn't overlook it, the reception area is a bit run down though the staff were helpful. The breakfast wasn't much to get up for in particular the scrambled eggs weren't that nice. Suprisingly for New York either was the coffee. If you like bagels and waffles its ok cereals not much choice. We both felt that the place could do with some refurbishment. We visited in early May but if we visited in summer we would go elsewhere as the aircon was noisy and would have great difficulty sleeping with it on.

    We appreciated the shuttle from the hotel to the subway station.

    The website mentions there is a shuttle from lga airport to the hotel but it does not exist. The shuttle to the subway can only be taken 1x a day, either going there or coming back. The hotel staff was not very friendly / helpful in the beginning but got better after a couple of days.

    Staff courtesy, cleanliness, complimentary breakfast, free transportation to the nearest metro station.

    A toilet. It's too small. Actually, no jokes.

    It was within our budget and I really liked the jacuzzi and large bed in the room

    The location (ie not close to the subway and Greenpoint avenue wasn't known by the cab drivers)

    Everything was fine; but typical basic Best Western breakfast.

    Hotel was a bit run down and old-fashioned though totally adequate and comfortable. It was much further from NY city than I expected which entailed a long walk each end of the day, though the hotel shuttle was useful when we took it - though not available late at night.

    Jacuzzi was nice, decent breakfast, very fast and free wireless internet, quiet room.

    We were first given a wrong room (smaller and without jacuzzi) even though the room type was very clearly stated in our reservation form. After mentioning we were reluctantly given the proper room, without any apologies. The personnel at the reception seemed completely bored.

    People working in the Hotel and at the front desk was quite kind and welcoming most of the time.

    Corridors are usually much dirty than the rooms, which are actually at a good average.

    Dear Sir/Madam, My stay in your hotel was wonderful. I stayed 8 days and enjoyed many features of your hotel. Such as cleanliness, breakfasts, shuttles to/from subway, the employee conducts, internet availability etc.

    However a minor improvement in your TV program and also in Internet speed can make the customers happier.

    The housekeeping staff were very friendly (one Spanish lady in particular) and all but one of the reception staff (the young oriental guy was, by far, the best). Breakfast was ok, pretty bog standard. The hotel owner sorted out a problem that arose from too much money being pre-authorised from my bank very swiftly, which was good. The rooms were fairly comfortable, and clean.

    One receptionist gave bad directions, resulting in my walking miles. I think she just couldn't be bothered so said whatever to get rid of me.

    Hotel is very(!) cheap, especially for NY, and quite close to Manhatten. It only takes a 10 minute walk and 15 minute subwayride till Grand Central without any train changings. Room was big enough and clean. Breakfast is avaliable from 6am till 9 am but we didn't make use of it that's why I can't say anything about the quality.

    We arrived in the middle of the night and the night porter sent us to a chamber, which was a construction site without beds or anything else in it. Changing it into a twin room , like we booked it, was'nt possible so we got one with a King. Lot of trouble after a long journey!!! Mainly due to fast and active help of Booked.net-we contacted immediately- problem was solved next morning and we got a nice new twin. From that time stuff acted friendly and helpfully all along.

    small proportions, tight/cramped (and I'm on the lower end of average size), not close to public transportation
