Interaction with Guests
You will see me more on the weekdays than on the weekends, but generally my family keeps me pretty busy.
Flushing Queens is a very safe and ethnically diverse neighborhood. The food here is authentic, delicious, and inexpensive.
The Q65 stops just footsteps away from my front door. The buses pass by frequently and the subway runs 24 hours a day. It takes about 40 minutes from my front door to midtown Manhattan. The train passes above ground the majority of the ride. Its a great way to see Queens. The neighborhood is very safe. You never have to worry about traveling at night.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Linda's in Flushing and had a really great experience! Contact beforehand was wonderful- Linda is friendly and very responsive. The night we were staying there we were rushing (Late to a Mets game---don't worry, the Mets didn't really end up showing up anyway...another story), and Linda was great with the "check-in". The room was all ready when we got there and her husband Robert met us while we were dropping our stuff off. He even helped us with directions, and of course was very nice to talk with. We met the cute cats and headed out.
The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. My favorite part was the awesome bathroom. Cozy and nicely decorated with plants and owls and a nice green theme. In the morning we chatted with Linda and it was nice to learn about the neighborhood and get to know her a little.
Definitely a great place to stay with very nice hosts! The walk to the subway is not bad at all and allows you to see a bit of the area.
We ended up coming in at midnight, much later than anticipated due to traffic. The place was easy to find and our only concern was finding parking so late on a Friday night (even that concern was unfounded since we found a spot around the corner). We were literally only there for five hours, but it was a much cozier five hours than any five hours we could have spent at a hotel for even double the price. I loved the little personal touches and the owls in the bathroom :) It was just what we needed for a quick trip into the city for an event nearby the next day.
We had a great stay with Linda and her family. The room was tidy and comfortable, and she provided tea and cookies!
