"Convenient to Citi Field and the tennis center. Easy access to the subway and dining options. The hotel was clean, and the staff was helpful and polite. There was an attached Starbucks. If you want decent Italian food, go to Dee's in Forest Hills.2019-09-02"

"I've stayed at this hotel many times before and loved everything about it, but the heat was turned up every day despite our setting the AC to our preferred temperature. The heater came back on at night and woke us up. Everything else was terrific, and we recommend staying here.2019-09-06"
"The room was comfortable and well-furnished, and the mattress was in good condition. The complimentary breakfast was generous and tasty.

"Located in Chinatown near abandoned buildings. When I arrived, the hotel clerk said I'd have to pay a $250 deposit in case we smoked in the room. I asked for a room upgrade and view of the baseball field, which he agreed to. However, the room was dirty and dark and had a view of a brick wall. No fridge or microwave. We returned to the desk and asked for another room, and the clerk came with us to see it. We smelled marijuana as soon as we got off the elevator, but he didn't seem concerned. The room was clean, but the key card didn't work, so we had to return to the desk and get new keys. There was an outlet with no cover, and the baseboard was chipped. One of the desk drawers wouldn't stay closed. Don't stay at this hotel.2018-08-10"

"Close to LGA and Citi Field. The area was more industrial than I expected. The hotel was clean and reasonably priced, but it seemed a bit dated and worn. Limited cable channels.

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
