My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night last weekend for an event at the nearby Barclays Center. We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. The neighborhood was not the greatest, but it was within walking distance multiple subway stops to get around and to the Brooklyn Museum, which we went to our first day after some helpful directions...

I am just departing from Brooklyn, after a stay at the Best Western PLUS Arena and am glad to have gotten away safely. The staff was lovely and the room nicely appointed. We did, however, have to squeeze through a one foot space by a bed in order to get to the bathroom, the room was that tightly put together.... More

Dear Caren Rox, Thank you for mentioning that our staff was lovely and that our rooms were nicely appointed. Our double rooms are a bit small and all face the front side of the hotel. We have little control of the surrounding neighborhood The good thing is along Nostrand Ave new sidewalks were just installed and the Bed Stuy BID... More

The hotel is conveniently situated within a couple of blocks of the Nostrand Avenue A & C subway. Service to Manhattan is frequent and rapid. Also convenient to JFK. The hotel is located in a pretty down at heel area and you will walk past bags of rubbish on the short walk to the hotel from subway. If you're not... More

This is a nice, clean, comfortable hotel. The front desk, breakfast servers, valet and manager are very nice and helpful people who go out of their way to help with whatever you need. The only thing they can't help with is PARKING! This is a major issue if you have a car. There are 10 parking spaces for the whole... More

First, Shantile was really most helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay most pleasant. Now this hotel is close to the subway, very affordable, offers free WIFI and a delicious Continental breakfast. Parking is limited and could become a problem it the small lot in the back is full.

Stayed at this hotel 7/21 thru7/24/14. The rooms are clean and hotel environment very quite. You need to be alert when outside of the hotel. Some of the surrounding areas are a bit rough but during the day we felt safe walking to the train. They serve a decent breakfast: fresh fruit, juice, coffee, pancakes, yogurt, cereal ... You get...

I booked my husband here when he went to visit our daughter for a quick overnight. Apparently he slept the best he has in a long time. The room was clean and comfortable, the hotel in general, very nice, even though the location was a bit strange. The hotel is newer and in a neighborhood in Brooklyn surrounded by factory... More

We found this place on the internet, and booked it since it was close to where our son lives in Brooklyn. The place was clean and modern, with great service. The neighborhood looks rough, but we felt safe walking at night to catch a train (about two blocks away). The highlight was the staff, all of whom were friendly and... More

It's not easy to find a reasonably priced hotel in Brooklyn, but we did! We were visiting our son for a few days so needed something semi close to him. The staff is extremely professional and friendly! We've been in other hotels where the staff treats you like you're a bother to them. Upon check in the young lady actually... More
