Vey clean, front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the side by train tracks and it was not an issue at all - really couldn't hear the train. Nice and close to subway too which was great!

Clean, efficient, pleasant, professional and inexpensive by NYC standards. You can't ask for anything more. This hotel is in a transitional part of Brooklyn. The area is still a little grimy, but appears to be improving quickly.

The staff made our stay really enjoyable. Breakfast was yummy! Best of all we had choices of menu options. The only thing I didn’t like they didn’t offer made to order eggs the only egg options was boiled eggs and no beacon - option just patty sausage. The rooms are very cozy meaning it was on the small size. However;... More

This hotel is a great place to stay. The staff were fantastic. They were very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and always greeted you. They have a great breakfast in the morning, and the rooms are always spotless. The local area provided everything we needed including easy access to local transportation. Great bang for the buck. This hotel is not... More

The Best Western Arena is a great alternative to old, repurposed hotels in Manhattan that offer tiny rooms at twice or triple the price. The building is fairly new and surprisingly quiet considering there's an elevated train along Atlantic, and the rooms are a good size. The breakfast room (included) has basics, not hot food but that's okay. Especially if... More

I needed to stay one night at a reasonably priced hotel in NYC. The Best Western Arena met my need perfectly. In addition to a clean and comfortable hotel, the folks who work there are friendly and helpful. I had a problem with a certificate I wanted to use for the stay. It was the kind of problem that could... More

The hotel itself is very nice, the employees are friendly and professional. However the street where the hotel is located is not the cleanest and did not make me feel safe. The room was clean, unfortunately the bathroom was not cleaned very well. Breakfast was ok.

This is a great hotel if you do not need to be in an exclusive area-Walk outside the door and your are on the B train-5 min walk to A/C train which gets your to lower Manhattan in 15min. If you do not have a car, that is the best choice-only 8-10 spots for parking-you can park on the street... More

Hotel very good. Breakfast Very Good. Staff Very Good. Location 1 out of 5. Must take subway to any place. Two great food places Davids and the Island Fish Market just 1.5 blocks away. If you are in NY make sure you get back to hotel before sun down. Don't be on the streets after that. I am an ex... More

This hotel is really good value in a very accessible area close to transport to take you to the great areas of downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan. Being right on Atlantic Avenue it also offers great access to Bedford Stuyvesant, one of the rapidly growing areas in Brooklyn with great restaurants, bars and transport.
