County Inn and Suites Long Island City

Reviewed 26 September 2011

I agree with most of the positive opinions on here. Clean, fridge, coffee maker, good bed linen & bed, decent breakfast, although yes, sometimes mega busy!!
I got some great pics of the skyline too, the view having the advantage that you could escape the madness of the city & chill in your room with a beer/coffee without feeling bad about not taking advantage of your time here......

The hotel is very close to Queensboro Plaza subway station for the 7, N & Q trains. It was better than we had expected with modern decor and the king size bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and very clean. As other reviews have stated, the breakfast room is cramped and the staff could be friendlier, but it is excellent value for money and we would stay here again. The garage next door stocks a huge variety of goods and fresh food - but not elastoplast unfortunately!

Stayed in this hotel for six nights. The hotel itself is about 200 yds away from the subway station, bought a metro card for $29, 7 day unlimited travel. Also buses available outside Metro station. The hotel provided all that was promised on their website. The room was comfortable, free wi-fi, good view of Manhattan skyline, fridge, microwave, king bed etc. The breakfast was plentiful with cereals, bananas, yogurt, bagels, bread, donuts, cakes, waffles, sausage and egg. It was a little chaotic but nothing as bad as reported in other reviews. I have used this system in other US hotels, plastic knives and forks, disposable plates cups. Not very environmentally friendly, along with the rest of the hotel, for instance the keycard does not control the electricity supply in the room so you can leave everything switched on at all times, what a waste. However as I said convenient to Manhattan, cheaper alternative, delivers on promises, overall quite acceptable. The staff are another issue, do not expect any interaction from staff. This suits me but not everyone will be pleased with their laid back attitude.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor city view room

We stayed at this hotel for one week in august and really enjoyed our stay! The location was perfect for us, just 10-15 minutes from Time's Square and Central Station with the 7 train. We paid half of what similar hotels on manahattan would charge and it was defenitely worth the 10 minute metro ride.

Breakfast was hectic around 8, but there was only one day that we couldn't find a table straight away (went back to have a shower and got back 30 min later when it was quiet). Cereals, waffles, eggs/sausage, yogurt, porridge, bagles, bread, donughts was available as well as hot/cold drinks. Best thing, it's included :-) but 2 mornings we went out for breakfast, my tip is Clinton Street Baking Company, it's amazing!!

Our room was located at the end of the corridor but we could still hear the lift, so I cant imagine what it would be to sleep next to it! Spacious room, large bed, tv and free internet. The only thing i missed was a safety box.

Staff is not friendly at all and barely say hello, but we didnt mind as we didnt spend much time here anyway...

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the lift!!

Hello,
Some of you may have noticed I mainly provide reviews regarding Hotels located in the NYC area.
This time I have been forced to find a new hotel as there were no vacancies in any of the good hotels I have been staying in the past. I have found the Country Inns and decided to stay in there as conveniently located just 250 meters far away from Queensboro Plaza metro station.
To keep it short, the hotel is very clean and just 2 years old.
Beds are big and have great mattresses, TVs are LCD 32 inches, toilette very nice. If you register t Carlson site and get your fidelity card, you will get free Internet for free.
Personnel in the reception could be a little more friendly or smile sometime, however this would be just a plus and it is their managers' duty to work it out with their staffs.
I see a lot of talking about the breakfast, and in fact I am very surprised about the good rates regarding this point. I have found a chair free just one time during the 4 days I have stayed in this hotel, but this is not the main issue.
The issue is to find only bagels and small butter and marmalade as options... some sliced bread and that is it. The machine making waffles! YEAH, nice toy, cooking the stuff not properly and really not such a good deal, I believe... I am not finding a plus to have to try to make a waffle, probably under or overcooking it! So, breakfast offers no variety, far from being exciting and no place where to seat! NYC is plenty of diners, so I have preferred to have breakfast in other places. If you want a hint and you like food, take the Q or N train going to Ditmars direction and have a breakfast or brunch at Neptune, right at the Astoria Boulevard metro station.
Finally, a good rate and congratulations to this newborn hotel, inviting the to re-orgnize from scratch the breakfast matter, allowing guests to have a better experience and TripAdvisor members to give a higher rate.

Room Tip: Rooms right on the side of the elevators are bigger but you can get disturbed by the noise coming f...
