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. I stayed with my wife for two nights... More

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

Dear Artsygirl, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Best Western Arena Hotel. Your review is kind of a tale of two hotels. It seems like the quality of sleep and overall comfort was high since he slept in late which are all positives. Then the breakfast experience was the last thing he experienced... 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

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Arena Hotel in Brooklyn in early August. This hotel was a nice surprse. Unlike many hotels in the area, the lobby is actually very nice and the staff were very welcoming. Amy was very helpful with locating restaurants and accomodating my questions. The room was nice sized for Brooklyn and I didn't feel... More

This is a nice place to stay and convenient to the A/C line subway or LIRR stops. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful, rooms have a double window so you do not hear the LIRR cars, the breakfast was great - we loved the pancake machine!! Coming from the midwest, my only issue is the parking but there are... More

We stayed here one night. The Hotel is clean and the Staff is very helpful. One young lady of the Staff was particularly helpful to us. The neighborhood does not look very safe although we had no problem during our stay.
