Our second stay here, and we were very pleased. Be aware -- it's quirky: in at least some of the rooms, the sole sink is OUTSIDE the bathroom, which is itself very small this seems to have been a necessity of room renovation. There is only one elevator in the building, so it gets busy at check-out time, and there seems to be only one staircase with direct access to the ground floor, so if limited hotel exits make you nervous, this may not be the place for you. But the small rooms are very comfortable, including the bedding. There is a small fitness room. The breakfast is good, with an egg-white option, pus actual quality greek yogurt; above average for its kind. and it has FREE parking. In all, if you roll with the quirks, it's probably the best value in queens, and we ourselves are very grateful for it.. Note: there's reportedly a long island railroad stop a 14-minute walk away; this is a relatively expensive way of getting into manhattan. Apparently no nearby subways. Otherwise just buses; not the most convenient location compared to hotels near subway stations. ... If you are used to modern suburban motels of the Fairfield or Holiday Inn type, this may not be your cup of tea. less

Thank you for your feedback of the Best Western Queens Gold Coast. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.
We are in the heart of beautiful Bayside, Queens. We are close to fast food restaurants across the street, but a quick ten minute walk will bring you to Bell Blvd where you will find a large selection of shopping and various dining. We are near two major airports and major highways. there is plenty of public transportation, including the Long Island Railroad, which can bring you right into Manhattan.
Thank you for joining us for a delicious complimentary breakfast. Our guests enjoy the most important meal of the day here with us. There is a wonderful variety of hot and cold foods to start your day with. A great cup of coffee or tea or juices to quench your morning thirst. Everyone walks away happy. We are happy this was your experience.
We are a hidden gem in a residential neighborhood that has everything you are looking for without the craziness of New York City.
We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
