Great location
I have stayed here before and will stay here again. The LIC is a great value in a great location. There are a number of subway stations/stops within 6 blocks and the closest being 2 blocks. The Court Square diner is about 5 blocks away and open 24 hours. There is a lot to see and do in the LIC area. MOMA PS1, Gantry Plaza Pier/Park and more. The room was plenty big and has a mini-fridge. The twin beds were comfortable. Our sink had very low water pressure, but the shower had plenty of pressure. The LIC Hotel offers free water, coffee and I believe bagels 24 hours a day to its guests. This is a great place to stay.

Frequent visitor
We stay here quite often when we come to LIC to help babysit the grandkids. Would like breakfasts to vary more but understand the nature of the beast. Maybe individual yogurts… the large vat is a bit unappetizing even tho I love plain yogurt! Granola in a dispenser (like the cereals) rather than left in the open is more sanitary. Love that u leave bagels n tea out at night!! Thank you

Great little hotel in LIC
Great location. The rooms were bigger than other NYC hotels I have stayed at and the place was hip and clean. Had everything I needed for an overnight business trip in the city. Only thing I would recommend is to have a system where customers can reserve one of the 15 car spots in your lot. Thanks!
