Close to the A train into Manhattan and close to many Brooklyn attractions as well. Easy two train commute to JFK. The staff are exceptionally friendly and easy-going. Don't be put off by the train in front of the hotel, the windows are double insulated and the noise of the train in not a problem. Sketchy looking building next door,... More

If you want a comfortable, clean hotel in Brooklyn close to public transportation (bus, subway etc.) with helpful friendly staff then this is the place for you. If you are looking for a higher end hotel in a nice neighbourhood then it is not. We stayed 2 nights and were completely satisfied. Really impressed with the staff which for me... More

The Hotel is actually quite nice and stands out from the surroundings. The receptionists and other employees are very helpful and dedicated, making the actual stay at the hotel a pleasant experience. Breakfast could be upgraded. I do not recommend the hotel for families with children, but this is due to the neithbourhood, which a night seems unpleasant. But altogether... More

This place is indeed an oasis right in the heart of a funky part of Brooklyn. Most of the rooms face away from the hustle and bustle and thus are quiet. The staff seem happy and well-treated which always spills over into service. We were brave and explored the side streets - had a great time. It is close enough... More

We stayed for two nights, the hotel is good, clean, and safe. The neighborhood is not great, but we did not feel unsafe even when we walked. Very friendly and efficient staff in the front desk. They were very helpful. The room was small, but had good amenities including a fridge, microwave and WiFi, and everything worked well.. Plenty of... More

Didn't care for the location, but the room was very clean and comfortable. Really clean bath, nice TV and great bed. The breakfast provided was EXCELLENT! two forms of eggs, sausage, a pancake MACHINE that was great, fruit, cereal, juice, coffee bread (and toaster) and danish, too. Two block walk in a busy neighborhood to the A train station.

Good hotel, what you see is what you get. Nothing special, but good value for your money. Friendly staff. + 5' walk to the metro and a 20' ride to downtown Manhattan. Simple but good breakfast. Not really an area with nice views.

We stayed for three nights and it was pretty nice. The parking lot is small but we were able to park there during our stay. It is a quick 3 blocks to subway (can get to Brooklyn Bridge area or Manhatten quickly, especially if you get express train). The lobby is small but the staff was friendly. They give you... More
