Location and helpful staff. It was a place to stay during a snow storm. Our flight was cancelled and most hotels in the area were already booked.
Beds could use new mattresses. They were uncomfortable. Breakfast area was very cramped.
Pretty Good Location, Pretty Inexpensive for NYC
In addition to a well-maintained and clean room for a good night's rest, you get included hot and cold breakfasts that aren't dried-up (e.g. you get freshly-made breakfast sausages and eggs, juices, coffee, breads, yogurt... pretty decent hotel breakfasts to start your day with.) It's really great to know that you're not even more than a block away from the nearest subway station (Queensboro Plaza!)
The only thing I really disliked is the fact that there is absolutely no street parking and that you have to park a block away if you needed to park your vehicle. The subway is nearby, though, so this shouldn't be a big issue.
Affordable, Comfortable, and Close to City
I found a great deal and decided to book this place. It's location is great! The train ride into the city took us 15 min. I have never been to Long Island City but we explored it our last night and have to admit it was such a cute town. The beds are also very comfortable and they give lots of pillows. Breakfast is included.
Breakfast was pretty limited but the waffles are great! The shower head is a little dodgy but other than that everything is fine. Though there isn't much of a view and we stayed on the 8th floor
Good place to crash while going out in Williamsbur
It was a regular Comfort Inn in Queens, so while it was a pretty clean, comfy, place to stay, don't expect too many frills. The room was a decent size, with a good bed, and good shower. The staff was friendly, and it was close to a few different subway lines.
Since I went there knowing it was a regular Comfort Inn, I wasn't disappointed by anything. The towels could have been a bit better. One of them had a small hole and the washing it had gotten hadn't totally removed the make-up stains left by one of the previous guests.
