Review: Quality Inn, Floral Park NY

2-7-11
HOTEL:
Quality Inn
256-15 Jericho Turnpike
Floral Park, NY 11001

Finding a pet-friendly hotel in Queens and Brooklyn was nearly impossible. We found ourselves looking up hotels on the GPS and using that to get phone numbers to call and find out if places accepted small dogs. Finally, we found a Quality Inn that did not take pets, but he told us of one in Floral Park which did. We had to back track about 30 minutes to reach this hotel – but it was more than worth it. The lovely and sweet Miranda checked us in and was very sympathetic to our frustrating evening. We hauled our luggage to the elevator and to the fourth floor to find an amazingly clean room. There was no mini-fridge, but that was okay – I’d rather sacrifice a refrigerator for cleanliness and no bed bugs any day. The pet charge was $25 – but they took pets which was a lifesaver in this situation. In the end (with taxes and pet fee), the total came to $119 – but that was still cheaper than anything in the city – which wouldn’t include city taxes and don’t forget parking charges which tend to start at about $35 a day! I highly recommend this hotel. And the neighborhood was residential and what we considered safe.
