Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

1) This hotel is used as a homeless shelter ( they don’t tell you at check in ) when I came to the hotel it was people hanging outside and in the lobby with NO MASKS ON.

2) Off Street Parking Is 25 Per Night .. I read other reviews stating the parking was underground, I wasn’t offered that instead I was offered to park directly behind the hotel unlike everyone else.

3) There is no breakfast at the moment due to covid.. most hotels I’ve stayed at during the pandemic still offer atleast packaged muffins & orange juice .. not here! Sign on the elevator specifically states there is NO breakfast due to covid.

4) I did stay on the 10th floor and honestly .. the partial view of the city I had was actually nice. And the room was clean ( except there was a keycard left on the table from before I checked in ) and the toilet rolls weren’t brand new .. but for under 95 dollars a night in New York you can’t beat it.

I just think it would be nice to know EXACTLY what you’re getting into before getting there so that way your expectations aren’t that high and nothing will catch you by surprise.

I am a graduate student NYC but live in Philly, so I've stayed in this hotel probably 4-5 times this semester when I need to be in NYC for a few days. The rooms are very clean and relatively updated (the pictures are accurate); they have a coffee maker in the room, which I always like. The staff is very nice and helpful; I had to change rooms once for a loud TV next door and they accommodated me immediately . The breakfast in the morning is totally acceptable and the people that run the breakfast take a lot of pride in what they do, and always ask if everything is OK, how your stay is, and if you need anything. I have also stayed in the Howard Johnson one block away and although the window views there are very nice, the bed there was like sleeping on a rock, and there is no coffee in the room, the staff were indifferent, and the breakfast is served later than at sleep inn, so if your looking into either of these places, I would choose to stay at sleep inn anytime ( you can get views of the city just walking around). The hotel is not in the nicest looking neighborhood; it's a little ghetto, so it may be a little intimidating for foreign guests but once you get off the subway, it's about a 4-5 min walk to the hotel. I always get there later at night, and sometimes have to leave very early in the morning and I'm a Caucasian girl in early 30's and I've never been bothered. So if your visiting the city and you are intimidated by the high hotel prices in Manhattan, just stay here and you'll probably be very happy. Getting into Manhattan from here is super easy; take the F-train and your in Manhattan within 20 minutes or so.

As a Choice Privileges Diamond member, I stay at Choice branded properties frequently, of which Sleep Inn is one. This particular Sleep Inn was one of the best of the brand that I have ever stayed in.

The staff are pleasant, efficient, helpful, and cordial. I was checked in by a cheerful front desk person and was on my way to the room in no time. The room was of ample size, with the typical Sleep Inn furnishings - 2 comfortable beds, work desk with ample space, wall-mounted HDTV, in room coffee, and a nice view of the NYC skyline. Bathroom was spotless, with ample hot water for the shower. This may have been a handicapped room, because the bathroom door was extra large and there was room where a wheelchair could have rolled up to the sink.

A nice touch was that in the elevator, the floors where ice, soda, and snack machines were located were clearly noted by the floor buttons.

The neighborhood itself is a bit run down, but the location turned out to be quite good - about 2-3 blocks to the closest subway stop (F Train) and a few blocks more to Queensboro Plaza subway, where a variety of lines converge. The F train makes it very convenient to get into Manhattan (2 stops) or to LaGuardia (1 stop to 74th Street/Roosevelt Ave, then catch the express Q70 bus to LGA), and if you're going to the Mets game, you can catch the 7 train from Queensboro Plaza. There is a 24 hour small grocery about 2 blocks from the hotel, on the walk to/from the subway.

Two things to be aware of - for informational purposes only.

First, the hotel does ask to make a copy of your personal ID when you check in. Normally I consider this a BIG red flag and decline permission to make copies, as it is very risky to copies of one's personal identification floating around, no matter how good a hotel's security policies may be. I personally have had such copies misused in the past (NOT at this hotel - at 2 other hotels) and see no reason why a hotel of any quality should require this from guests. Normally I downgrade my Tripadvisor ratings when this happens, but in this case, I have not downgraded my rating, because when I explained my decline to the person who checked me in, they withdrew the request. But I mention this to let other travelers know that they may be asked to allow a copy to be made of their ID, and, from a personal identify protection standpoint, I would strongly encourage such guests to decline to allow the copy to be made. I also mention it in the hope that hotel management sees this comment and gets rid of what is an ill-advised and invasive policy.

Second - most Sleep Inns have a 24-hour coffee service set up for guests. This one apparently doesn't. No big deal; just mentioning it so you'll know.

Overall - a very nice hotel, well run, and surprisingly well located for trips into Manhattan and to/from LaGuardia, but not at a Manhattan price.

I just had a meeting there today in the lobby to discover it is a homeless shelter and I think out-of-town tourists should know why the prices are so low for being just two subway stops from Manhattan. There are NYCHA Housing Projects at this train location and two-star hotels being used by the City of New York as homeless shelters. I would not bring my family to a homeless shelter to stay while vacationing because it is filthy and dangerous. If I traveled from far away to see New York City and arrived from the airport at this hotel and the surrounding area, I would cry. Save your money all year long and stay at a respectable place that is clean and safe. There should be a law that notifies hotel guests whether the property is being used as a homeless shelter.

Hi, so i took a 2 day vacation in new york and cimpletely regret it. I went out on my second day for the whole day and came back to missing personal items, including my safe wide open even though i did not use it. Apparantely they house the homeless at this hotel so i assumed they donated my clothes to some of them. I had to sit in my room past checkout on the 3rd day and last morning there, because i actually had no more clothes to wear besides a tank top and my coat. They want tourists to stay more than a day so they can take what they want and laugh in your face. I was soooo upset. Ill never actually be visiting new york again. Killed my experience.

I made a reservation to this location on Choice Hotels. I received confirmation as well as a "we're looking forward to your stay" email the week before. We arrived to find out that it was a woman's shelter and we were out a hotel and our pre-paid stay. Worst feeling ever getting to NY with no place to stay with most hotels already sold out and the plans made didn't exist. STAY AWAY!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of September. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable, staff was great, and breakfast was better than most. We knew that the neighborhood was on the tough side, and we were fine with that. However, it appears that several bottom floors are being rented out as low income housing. Apparently this practice is becoming more prevalent in the city, and we were not aware what was going on until I researched it online. I think this should be noted upfront, so guests can make informed decisions before choosing hotels.

Choosing a hotel in New York wasn't very difficult once me and my better half booked our ticket. Back in 2011 I had a great experience with the Howard Johnson Long Island City hotel in the Queensbridge area. The only visible change when making the booking was the change of chain. Judging by price and recent reviews, not much had changed. So the booking was made. Unfortunately, my previous Tripadvisor review is not available anymore, probably due to the chain change. So here we go, my most recent experience...only a week old :)

- Located in the Queensbridge area of Long Island City, Queens.
- It takes only 2 minutes by foot to reach 21 st/Queensbridge subway station. If you arrive in NYC by plane at JFK, it takes about 30 minutes to reach the hotel from Jamaica subway station. The F-train is your personal guide into NYC if you're staying at the Sleep Inn! Downtown Manhattan can be reached in about 10 minutes, 24/7!
- Helpful and friendly staff
- Clean and well maintained rooms. Our great kingsize bed gave us all the rest and comfort we needed after our long and exhausting days in NYC.
- Free wi-fi!

There is one major con about the Sleep Inn: Breakfast is usually included in your rate. And although the buffet is basic but OK, the breakfast area is (still) too small for the number of people that stay here. On our first morning, we were pretty much forced to have breakfast in our room since there was no space to enjoy our breakfast, even after waiting for about 20 minutes for some free seats.

Some people were not very happy with the surroundings of the hotel. I can imagine the feeling when you arrive in the Queensbridge area for the first time. But don't let the surroundings scare you off. Today's New York is NOT the New York of the 70s and 80s. Long Island City has come a long way. And although the Queensbridge area does not look really inviting, it is in no way dangerous! The streets are busy at all times, police can be found at any corner and the locals really don't mind you and are helpful if you are in need.

As expensive as the great city of New York is, there are a lot of hidden gems located throughout the city. The Sleep Inn Long Island City (formerly Howard Johnson) still offers the best value for your money if you need a hotel only 10 minutes away from downtown Manhattan. It's clean, friendly and much cheaper than most middle class hotels in Manhattan! Still highly recommended, and still my number one choice in my number one city!

After searching for hotels ALL OVER NYC, I decided this was the best place for me. The hotel was not far from Laguardia and the rate was very resonable considering all the other outrageous prices I'd seen & the location makes for convenient access to Manhattan. The good reviews were a plus too! The hotel is less than 2 short blocks to the F train subway station. There are also 2 convenient stores & 2 eating places within the block. Breakfast was from 6:30-10am. The breakfast area wasn't nearly as crowded as other reviews were stating. There was also an extended breakfast room where you could eat if the main room was full. The hotel rooms were average sized and not small & cramped like a lot of rooms I'd seen at other hotels. There was a fridge in the room. I just took food downstairs to the breakfast room to warm it up in the microwave. They let me check in an hour early which I appreciated. The hotel is almost next door to projects but nothing or no one posed a threat. The residents stayed in their area and everyone minded their own business. I did not have any problems during my stay what so ever!

Hello, to answer your question, no there is not a shuttle service from the airport to the inn but you can take the train or a taxi. If you are taking the train you can take the F train to 21st/ Queensbridge. I hope this was helpful! Sincerely, Jasmin
