Due to a hectic life, both at home and at work, I tend to need some down time; so ever so often my fiance and I would visit the Best Western in Brooklyn to breathe . . . What they lack in physical location, is made up for in their hospitality, appearance and ambiance. I must say that Shantile is... More

Excellent staff (Shantile was very helpful, upbeat and pleasant each time we saw her!), spotless quiet room thanks to advice from staff. Couldn't ask for better free parking in front of building. Brooklyn is what it is - I could see could make some people uncomfortable, but you'll be fine - no problem walking back and forth to subway, just... More

I have just returned from a ten night stay in this hotel and can honestly say I loved it. Me and my 15 year old son used this as our base for our summer holiday in NYC. On the cab ride in from the airport I must admit feeling some concerns on the look of the area . Upon arrival... More

Usually travel to NY by train, but had a car this time so our choice for a 2-night stay at Arena Hotel had a lot to do with their free parking. When we arrived we were a bit concerned by the run-down, rough look of the neighborhood which was in stark contrast to this newly renovated hotel. Renovations are so... More

Getting a hotel in Brooklyn, especially near the heart of the city, can be a bit iffy, especially if you're on a budget. But the Best Western Arena, on Atlantic Avenue proved to be a good choice. I was visiting my two daughters who live in Bushwick, and the closest hotel to their apartment had comments under room tips like,... More

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.

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
