Queens >Days Inn/Long Island City
Overall great experience with this hotel from start to finish, have been to many hotels in and around NYC . This trip we had 8 family members with us to enjoy the weekend so we rented 2 rooms both rooms were clean and well maintained as well was the any hall way elevator lobby area.Every staff member that we came in contact with was friendly and more than willing to go out of there way to do anything we needed to make our stay great. A great experience was when we were all leaving I had forgot my baby's diaper bag outside on the ground next to my car I did not realize this until I got into the city when I called in they had the bag at the front counter already. also my wife was not feeling good the morning of the check out so when I spoke to the front desk about check out time they said 12pm I explained that my wife was not feeling well they extended our stay until 2pm for no charge. I would just like to say for the price and convenience you cant beat it (150 per night) ample secure free parking being across the street from the 7 train that takes you straight in to the city or the cab ride for 4 from times square for $12. I will with out a doubt stay here again and highly recommend this hotel to anyone
People of the hotel was kind and we stayed comfortable in the room.
I didn't ask much from the staff but they seemed approachable if i had any questions. Everything worked great in our room and hotel so maintenance was not an issue. The room we had was a smoking room so when i walk it it smelled like cigarettes but that is to be expected. The room was small but it is comfy nonetheless. The walk from the Queens Plaza station wasn't too bad it really close to the E and you can head right into the city afterward.
Met all our needs, fairly easy into the city. We were lucky to get a parking space, hotel parking is very limited. Continental breakfast was good, decent selection. Although train was nearby, where we were located within the hotel the noise did not disturb us. Room was clean.
Check in was a real breeze I booked
using priceline I don't think it took me 5 minutes to check in. Hotel is located 2 blocks from the #7 train which will take you to time square and rockafeller center. Taxi rides to most attractions were under 50 bucks round trip. Room was kind of cramped but I am a big person and the size of the bed and the flat screen tv made up for that small inconvenience. The room and the rest of the hotel was clean and modern. My room was #609 and I was not bothered at all by the noisy near by train. Tho walking distance to restaurants is rather limited there are plenty in the area that will deliver which I took advantage of on a daily basis. The hotel is also located right next door to a 7/11 where you can get soft drinks or a quick snack or coffee if you miss the continental breakfast.. As for the bed I chose a room with a king size and wow was it comfortable that is one thing I am going to miss when I go back home tomorrow. The neighborhood was very crowded and busy but that is the norm for New York however you are not bothered by the noise inside your room. The staff was very friendly and not rude at all.
Bottom Line: If you are looking for a cheap close to Manhattan hotel then this is the ideal one for you. If you are looking for 5 star amenities and a large room you might want to look else ware but you will also pay for it.
Clean, affordable & convenient location. I would recommend this inn to anyone who is visiting new york. Close to the city & offers free breakfast every morning.
We booked this hotel for 2 nights while we explored Manhattan. We flew into Laguardia, and it was a quick $19 cab ride to the hotel. Once there, they let us check in early at 10:30am so we could go into the city. The 7 metro station was in site from the hotel door, but we chose to walk about 0.2 miles over a bridge to get to the E, M, R trains that brought us to all the popular downtown tourist sites. We felt safe walking to and from the metro stations.
