    The room was dirty, long black hairs in the bath, a human nail on the ground. The staff were impatient and snappy when I was asking questions

    You can make pancakes at breakfast

    They charged my cedit card for 3 times! This looks like a fraud. The location of this hotel is good only for guests with car.

    Fabulous

    Everything that was stated about the hotel on the website is factual. The room I stayed in was an exact match of the room on the hotel virtual tour. I was allowed to check in early, without having to pay any additional fees. It was in decent proximity of all locations that I intended on visiting.

    Very nice and helpful personnel at the reception, very good equipment in room, free parking places, free WiFi

    The noise from the street was a little bit anoying especially in the morning.

    Good staff, rooms Ok noisy if you have a view over the express way. Good situation if you have a rented car (free car park). Subway station at 500 meters and only 40 minutes from Rockefeller center station. The subway line is safe even at night, police headquarter inside the Van Wyck station, good restaurants around the station. Good price hotel, well situated, good free breakfast.

    Good

    Good location for the places we needed to be in Queens. Free parking a big plus. Overall clean and quite. Friendly helpful staff.

    I rated the cleanliness as fair because there were 4 hairs in the bathroom when we arrived, one in the tub and 3 on the floor. Otherwise the room looked clean, and maid service was good. The staff was very nice and helpful, but they mixed up some of the reservations in our group which led to a 7 AM phone call about someone checking out early. The location is convenient, but not in an attractive area. It was good for us because we needed to be in Jamaica, Queens, but it would not be convenient for someone visiting Manhattan.

    The convinient check in and the polite front desk staff.

    The additional parking garage was very small. Manuvering was alittle difficult.

    Very good

    Small hotel, but clean and silent room. Simple nice breakfast provided and free parking. They were kind on keeping our luggage after our checkout so we could come back later in the afternoon to pick it up.

    We chose this hotel for its proximity to jfk Airport, but it has no shuttle service and is not that close a walk to Jamaica Station, where you can catch the Airtrain (especially when you are hauling a piece of luggage). It may cost a little more but will definitely be safer and more comfortable to take a cab from the Airport to the Inn.

    Fabulous

    Good price for a good hotel, clean, breakfast, close subway station, you can lock your lagguage before your flight in a room though you are already check out

    small room even for three people, no central light in a room, just small next to a bed

    Very good

    Location near to jfk to catch early flight. No shuttle you need to order a taxi. Has a car park & next to a gas station which is convenient if you need to return a rental car.

    No shuttle to airport.

    Fabulous

    The staff were very courteous and helpful and always had a smile. My wife and I liked the inclusion of microwave oven in the rooms. The hotel was also kept very clean throughout our stay. Breakfast choice was good - although introducing variety from time to time will be nice. The complimentary internet (wifi) also worked well throughout our stay.

    Busy highway is near - pretty noisy during the night.
