Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable, clean hotel with excellent staff.
Clean, comfortable hotel with efficient and friendly staff. We stayed here due to its proximity to the Nassau Stadium which is easily reached via car or taxi. Taxi transfer to JFK was reasonable too, although Merrick LIRR station is in easy walking distance from where you can catch a connection to the Airtrain.

Stay was fine but annoyed because had me down as smoker. When I realized 2 days before my start of trip I called to change and I was charged extra for non smoking room and when I called I was put on line with a nasty Rep.
