"OK but.... not changing the bed sheets?"
Reviewed Aug 18, 2014
A La Quinta traveler |
Everything is fine (when scaled down by NY standards), but we noted that the bed sheets and pillow cases were not changed for a few days in a row. When we finally get around to talk to the front desk the house keeping people were no longer available...
I have stayed at the La Quinta Inn Queens on a few occasions and each time it's gotten progressively worse. I'm not saying it's awful, because it's not, but it's not great either.
-Location is great. I love Sunnyside and all of the shops, restaurants, entertainment, etc. It's a great place to use as a base for NYC. The 7 train is a couple blocks walk in either direction and only a 15 minute trip into Manhattan.
-Free breakfast. It's not great but it is included. If you don't like it their is a McDonald's right beside the hotel and even better, Pete's Diner and Grill is just a couple blocks away.
-Free Parking. If you drive in NYC, you know what a plus free parking is. Not a large lot, but you'll get in somehow.
-The cleaning staff did a great job during my stay. I always received clean towels and they always made the beds, cleaned, etc.
-Beds are comfortable
-The receptionist, managers, staff (not including the cleaning staff) are just not friendly. I'm not saying they're rude, they just don't do the things that most recommend in the hospitality industry, things like smiling, greeting guest, just a simple glance and a hello might be nice from time to time, but you won't get much of that here. I wouldn't let that stop me from staying here of course because I'm not in NYC to make friends with the hotel staff, but it would be nice if they were a little more welcoming I guess.
-The bath tube never drained properly in our room during our stay and our shower knob was broken and never fixed.
-The rooms on the Queens Blvd and the 7 train side of the hotel might be a problem for light sleepers, but I've never noticed it.
All in all, this is a decent choice to use as a base for NYC. It's close to all the main attractions with use of the subway and the Sunnyside area is a nice, safe area to explore as well. If you can get the hotel for a good price then don't hesitate to book it.
Hotel very clean and cleaning staff friendly. Breakfast bar was nice. The only bad thing was at exactly 11:00am the front desk started calling to get us out of the room. We were heading out anyway at that time and went back to answer phone. Lobby then filled with people who had no where to go at the present time luggage and people everywhere.
We were leery after a horrible hotel stay (at a competitor) in Highland, NY.
Upon walking in and seeing the lobby and checking in we knew that this would be a much better stay. Staff was professional, parking was free and our room - although small - was clean and nice. Updated and matching furniture, fridge, iron/board, clock radio, coffee maker, hair dryer etc. Extra blanket in the cabinet which I needed because the cooler worked really well. The room was really quiet. We never heard anyone else. Breakfast was good and included eggs, sausage, cereal, bagels, English muffins, bananas, toast, juice, coffee etc. The hotel is in an area with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping (CVS pharmacy, Fresh Market etc) all within walking distance. The #7 train is an easy walk and takes you to and from Manhattan very easily.
All in all we were very happy with our stay and the money we saved by avoiding hotels in Manhattan. Would happily stay there again.
Don't come here if you have allergies to feather pillows. I called a week in advance to make sure they had poly filled pillows. The staff told me that they didn't have feather pillows. Upon arriving and checking in room, I looked at pillows and found them to be feathers. I called down to desk and was told "oh well, sleep without pillows", after hearing this I called the 800 number 3 times. Finally, they got pillows. The room was clean and spacious otherwise. Breakfast was all carbs, choose to go down street to a diner and had a great breakfast.
