This Best Western site isaway from the more expensive areas of Brooklyn. The staff was very polite and pleasant. The room was quiet and comfortable. The air conditioning did not work but that problem was rectified and the TV remote had to be adjusted by staff for actual channels could be accesses. The included breakfast was better than most similar... More

I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again. It was affordable, clean, and somewhat updated. I had traveled solo and didn't feel unsafe. There was faint noise from the train but it wasn't unbearable. Note, my room faced the back of the hotel. Also it's conveniently located with the A, C station nearby. Breakfast was complimentary but I... More

After much deliberation, we chose the Best Western Arena Hotel. So glad we did! We got parking right away (but arrive early to get a space--we arrived around noon) and the staff (particularly Ariela) were nice, efficient, and very helpful. There is a subway stop a block away and it is walking distance to the Brooklyn Museum. They serve breakfast... More

The young lady at the front desk was very welcoming. Ariela always had a smile on her face and always acknowledge us. My husband, kids, and I stayed for 4 nights and would go to her for everything. She explained all of their amenities and in about 15 minutes from us checking in she called up to check on how... More

The Best Western Arena is really convenient if you are visiting New York and looking for a place to stay. Nothing fancy but clean, although the location is a bit scary at night, the hotel is very close to everything. You have a subway 3 minutes away from the hotel which will make your life easy in the busy NYC.... More

Great place to stay. Excellent rooms and very helpful employees. Frank and his crew are very professional. We needed directions on how to drive out of town and he took the time to print the directions out for us. You don't often get that.

We stayed here in January, 2015 and returned again for 4th of July weekend. The front desk staff here is always super friendly and very helpful. The room was nice and clean and location on the back side of the hotel was quiet. We love that it is just a short walk to the subway (A/C lines) and literally next... More

The front desk Agent, Armando was amazing. He was courteous, professional and extremely smart. Whenever we had questions regarding the subway, restaurants, and nearby parking, He would always have an answer. The stay was great. Oh and the breakfast was delicious !

Amazing oasis in the middle of Brooklyn near the Barclays Center! Clean, modern facility with helpful and friendly staff. Conveniently located to the arena with only a 20 minute walk. Surrounding area underdeveloped but we felt safe walking.
