These folks know what they're doing!

We felt very safe there, in part because it's a relatively small hotel. Better hotels in Manhattan have not felt as safe to me. The staff was warm and helpful, especially Chantill, who was smart and a real professional. Bathroom was all shiny white tile, and immaculate. Yes, the subway was noisy, but you expect that in New York. I recommend this hotel without hesitation. My 85 year old mother loved it.

Frank's Deli around the corner. Basic but a very good corned beef sandwich.

Clean, safe, convenient, good value

While there is free parking, it is very limited. There is a pay garage nearby, but we were able to find on-street parking by walking a couple of blocks. The front of the hotel faces an elevated train track and the immediate neighborhood is "authentic" (ie not yuppified), commercial, noisy, busy. That said, the hotel itself was quiet and clean and the staff could not have been more helpful. We were a 25 minute brisk walk from Prospect Park and the Botanical Gardens, and the hotel is literally on a Subway line. While considerably more expensive Brooklyn hotels may have more character, or be in the heart of the renaissance areas, you'd be hard put to find better value and a cleaner, more comfortable room or a more helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again.

It is not difficult to find free on-street parking on the next street south of the hotel.

This was a VERY seedy side of town.

We loved the staff! They went way beyond what would usually be expected. However, the carpet in the entry and in the hallways was very dirty. The motel wasn't that old but if they don't maintain it, it will become rundown soon. The other issue was the standing water in the parking lot which only held 10 cars. We were fortunate to get one. To their credit, they had made arrangements to bring our car around to the front of the motel, but we weren't aware of that until after my husband waded through six inches of water. Again, the staff was more than accommodating in every way, and very pleasant. By the way, we LOVE New Yorkers, so the area was more fascinating than scary for us.

Very bad experience.

We came from Portland OR to help our son with the newborn baby. This hotel was chosen because we had very good experience in Best Western in OR and it was 2 miles from our son's location. The worst was that 2 nights in a row, at 4 am the false fire alarm was sounding for 10 -15 min waiking us up after a very difficult day. First night nobody explained that it was the false fire alarm, adding confusion. The staff in the morning said that it was fixed, but apparently, it was not the case because next night it happened again at the same time and the same duration. The lobby's carpet was always dirty and our bathroom cleaning was somewhat mediocre. Our experience with Bards Inn Best Western in Ashland Oregon was exceptionally good, and we naively thought that Best Western quality is the same everywhere, which unfortunatelly, is not the case.

Nice Little Suprise

The hotel was modern and nice. Tucked right away in Brooklyn. Walking distance from the subway, restaurants, and shopping. I was truly surprised and will definitely be coming back. A plus was the complimentary robe and slippers!

Surprisingly comfortable

Clean interior, friendly staff It's in Brooklyn but Manhattan was only 20 min. by car Quiet, good breakfast only thing was only 10 parking spots available otherwise there's garage parking for 9 bucks for twelve hours. At $123/night I think it's convenient and I'd recommend

A great value but at what cost..

Don't get me wrong the place delivers on everything a 3 star hotel should offer as far as amenities however to check in you must provide a driver's licence as proof of ID. No other form is acceptable. Moreover this establishment keeps a copy for 6 months to 1 year. When I asked the mgr about security because I've previously been a victim of identity theif, the mgr told me that this was the hotel's policy and if I didn't like it that there were plenty of other hotels in the area I could choose from. This policy should be posted in writing before booking.
