We arrived at the hotel early and were told that our room was already available and we would be able to check in. The woman at the desk gave us our key and we went up to our room. When we opened the door, we were embarrassed to walk in on the previous occupant who had not checked out yet. We went back down to the front desk and told them what happened. They took the key back and told us they would call when the room was ready. No one ever called to let us know.

The blanket on the bed was well used, you need to replace it. The wood floors were separated and I almost hurt my foot. The air conditioner is loud!! The mattress was hard and uncomfortable. It’s too hard to walk around the bed. The towels are scratchy. We did not sleep well at all. Guest slamming doors. We feel it’s about 1 1/2 steps from being a hostel.

Only thing I didn’t like was the ripped up pleather office chair in our room. Looks like someone’s cat had a field day. Other than that it was quiet and my room smelled like bleach 😁

LIC hotel was convenient to the subway and an excellent value, especially for New York. It is 1-1/2 blocks to Court Square, which is two stops from midtown Manhattan and museum mile. The neighborhood is safe. The view from the rooftop of the Manhattan and LIC skylines is wonderful, great spot to take your drink or picnic dinner. The hotel is not fancy but has everything we needed, comfortable bed, spacious room and large shower, plenty of hot water, small fridge in the room. No carpets, no fancy lobby, no fluffy robes--we didn't miss them. Internet was adequate but not blazing fast. Nice hot breakfast with scrambled eggs and bacon, bagels or toast, cereal, yoghurt and juices, and coffee is available 24 hours.
