1. The room does not have a safe. So you'll have to carry your valuables with you. Though, I find it safe to leave my iPad in the room, anyway.
2. No good dining facilities within walking distance. But there're some fast-food chains nearby, like KFC.
3. Free breakfast is offered from 7 to 10. There is a staff member standing by the door who makes sure you do not take food out of the dining area (even to your room). We had to catch a morning flight, so we wanted to take the food out with us while we drove to the airport. But we couldn't, so we had to skip the breakfast offered by the hotel on the last day of stay.
I was somewhat concerned when booking the hotel, since some reviews say that the hotel is not clean with bedbugs and mildew in the shower. But since there are also very good reviews on booking.com, I eventually decided to give it a try. It turned out great! Very clean, no bedbugs or mildew. Nice and clean fridge in the room. The biggest draws of the hotel, for me, is that it has a parking lot right next to it with free parking (super convenient for luggage loading and unloading) and only 10-20 minutes drive to JFK airport. Free wifi and free hot breakfast. Safe neighborhood. If you're visiting Manhattan, you can take the subway. It's very close to the E anf F lines, though you'll have to spend an hour or so on the train. Price wise, it was excellent!
