Having gotten used to incredible breakfast spreads in Scotland and England, the breakfast was a bit of a let-down, but by American standards, it was perfectly fine, if a little boring. Other than that we were very pleased with the hotel, overall.
We spent 2 nights here in August after a very long trip from Europe, arriving at JFK very late on a Saturday night. We are from upstate NY and had an appointment in NYC on Monday morning and our goal with this stay was to be able to rest and recover from the trip, and possibly be able to go to the beach on Sunday. Rockville Center Inn was perfect for this. We were picked up at JFK by hotel staff, and then on Monday morning taken to the train station, as needed. Our room was large and gracious. We could have spent the whole day in it resting very comfortably, but in fact we did get to the beach. Walked into Rockville Center, and took the bus from there. The only bad things was the $12 each to go to the beach, but that was not the hotel's fault. Our room was quiet, and very pleasant.
