My family and I had a trip planned for the new year an do to a family emergency I had to cancel an the hotel gave me such a hard time it brought me to tears. The staff was rude an hung up on me twice an I feel like that all that hotel cards about is making money an not making sure the guest are happy. Also this was not just a one day trip we were planning on staying for four days.

This was the dirtiest place I have ever seen in my life. Smell of smoke, burn home son the sheets, hair on my bed, porno on regular cable, the list can go on. DONT STAY AT THIS PLACE! Bulletproof glass at check in

We stayed here for 6 nights. The room was clean, the room maid was very nice to us, other staffs were lovely too except the manager. He never smiled, very unhelpful. We did not know why he always appeared to be very unhappy with us ?? Is it because we are asian or what?? No hospitality at all with him. I think the owner should consider again to let him be at the front with guests.

This place offers adult films. The reason why I know that is because as soon as I turned the TV on, I got a good view of some rollicking sex. If I had children with me, it would have been an incredible awkward moment. Perhaps when the rooms are done, the maid should put on a neutral channel. Also when I was checking the room to see if I dropped anything, I found a packet of 4-in-1 lube (for people, not cars) under the bed. Something the maid should have found. It made me wonder what else was in the room that I didn’t see. Not a family motel, but clearly the place for a tryst.

Moderately priced inn compared to other accomodations. Good for overnight before boarding cruise. Conveniently located at entrance of Lincoln tunnel and two blocks from cruise terminal entrance, but it is still a 1/2 mile additional walk to the actual terminal. If you have a lot of luggage and/or can't walk that far, I recommend you can find another reasonable accomodation farther away. Room was clean and remodeled. There are nice eateries a few blocks away within walking distance. NOTE: this inn is in a working neighborhood and also caters to clients on an 'hourly' rate in the evening. No troubles but it should not shock you if bringing family.

I was in Brooklyn, New York for a funeral this past week. I booked several nights at The Brooklyn Motor Inn. The location is just a few blocks from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. I was not too impressed with the area, but I must admit it, the neighborhood grows on you. I was met at the hotel by "Victor", one of the nicest, most cordial and helpful people you will meet anywhere. Victor will help you with your bags, lead you to your room and direct you to the best coffee and meal locations in the neighborhood. The elevator reminded me of a warehouse freight elevator, but when you get to your floor, you will know you are in a hotel. This may be the safest hotel I have ever seen. There are cameras everywhere. The room was large with a very comfortable king sized bed. The bathroom was small (no tub), but served its purpose. The staff is quick and willing to accommodate and there were no issues at all. With that, I can honestly say that I enjoyed my stay and I would highly recommend The Brooklyn Motor Inn to anyone looking for safe, pleasant and affordable lodgings while visiting New York. But, I leave you this warning. If you are going with children, I suggest you grab the remote and scan the channels first. Channels 30 and 31 held some full-fledged, triple XXX rated "surprises" that will absolutely shock the kids. The "programs" are totally uncensored and definitely not suited for young eyes. These are part of the viewing package and I am not sure if they can be blocked, so please, view with caution. Otherwise, enjoy your stay.

Paid for a room over a week in advance and upon arrival the desk boy showed me a paper that said in larger print DO NOT HONOR with my receipt. He said they were over booked. My room was paid for and I called a day prior to confirm before leaving. I had to pay $50 in uber fees and $500 for another room. We had very little time Bc we were there for a funeral. It took them 8 days to return my $334 for the room. Never once did the call or email me about the room being over booked. To be honest the hotel is located in a rough area and there is nothing but construction around. The management was rude and did not care one bit. Keep your money and go elsewhere!

I drove to see my friends and family in Brooklyn from Pennsylvania. We had great time but I realized that it turn 9:30 or so in the night. My family request for me to sleep with them but I refuse politely. So I show a Brooklyn Motor Inn in my smartphone. First of all, I was looking for basics to four walls and a bed. Thats it. But I came inside, they treat me with respect and they were cery helpful. The front desk person give me my room with smile and the employee pick up my bags to my room. I was impressed. But the basics were really basic but well maintained. So far, I had no problem with sleeping and left without eating breakfast. I would recommend this place if I pass by again.

While in Red Hook, Brooklyn we decided to check into a hotel, or Inn for the night. We called the Brooklyn Motor Inn for their rate. They gave us an hourly and daily rate which we thought was strange, but we went anyway. While going to the front desk I observed a couple arguing and some guys standing inside the lobby. At the front desk I was given a different rate than quoted on the phone 10 minutes earlier, and in addition the clerk asked for ID for each person staying in the room. Needless to say, we did not check in or even look back. I definitely would not recommend this place.

While reserving our roo, my partner was informed by the attendant that he needed both of our IDs. When I asked why, I was told it was a new policy. I then asked why the policy was created and was told it was for "security purposes". I've been to this location several times prior with my partner and never had to provide my identification, since he was the one reserving the room. The more I thought about it the more I disagreed with the policy for several reasons. Since the manager was there as well, I asked him about the new policy and was told "No one is being forced to stay here. If you don't like it, you can stay somewhere else". Considering there's nothing remotely special or even really good about this establishment, except maybe the location, that is exactly what I plan on doing. Those of you who don't mind presenting ID'S for everyone staying in the room are welcome to ALL the rooms at Brooklyn Motor Inn.
