Great Value and Great Staff A review of Comfort Inn
My husband, myself, and our 2 kids (12 and 6) stayed at the Comfort Inn Long Island City July 4-6. The rooms are a little bit small as was noted in previous reviews but very clean and adequately furnished. The location was great with the subway just a short walk and only 5 minutes to Manhattan. Parking could be an issue if you drive there, but we really lucked out with a parking spot on the street directly in front of the hotel. I managed to get an excellent summer break rate of 89.00 per night, which I think was a steal compared to the prices of downtown Manhattan properties.
I can't say enough about the staff. They were very friendly and helpful. They even escorted us and the other hotel guests to the roof to watch the Fireworks over Manhattan. David even made a print-out for us on directions to Philadelphia and the important sites to see.
If/when we return to New York, I would definitely stay at the Comfort Inn again.
