The exterior of the building looked like a Soviet-era, cinder block construction--drab and somber. Wallpaper was peeling slightly in the room; scratched paint was evident on the hallway walls. There was nothing visually pleasing about this facility.

I liked the location of the hotel. A short walk over to Bell Blvd where you can find lots of place to eat at or have a drink.

Mixed feelings

Cons: Fruit options for breakfast.
Location: We enjoyed VI Pizza about an 8 minute walk away.
At check-in we were given a different room. The room we booked was unavailable and we were given a standard room. Eventually we did receive a refund but it did not reflect the difference between the room we booked and the one we were actually given. The staff was nice. The room was fine. The continental breakfast was good except they didn't have fruit like most typical continental breakfasts include. We were able to get to Penn Station on the LIRR which wasn't very far from the hotel.

Not what I expected

Pros: The free parking.
Cons: The smell.
Location: Lots of restaurants.
Initially, the idea was to find a hotel that would accommodate me, my husband, and my 3 children but to my surprise all I found was a Inn that smells like mold, does not have enough room for 2 adults and 3 children, and judging from the price I paid for the room you would expect so much more. Do not waste your $.
