Arrived after a long flight from Heathrow Airport, greeted by a nice young Polish girl on reception and given our room key. Upon entering the room was pleasantly surprised how clean and well proportioned the room was. Even a bigger surprise was the ipod docking station so playing my music was a doddle. It was a nice touch having a... More

We visited our family in Brooklyn and stayed close by in the Best Western Arena. Although the area was not the best- It was the perfect hotel with excellent amenities- beautiful room and bathroom that was well equipped. A great buffet breakfast and fantastic welcoming staff. Not too far from the subway. We will go back again.

Convenient location to Barclay's Center, easy to get around with the train across the street. Free parking behind the hotel for about 6-7 cars but we were lucky to get one Friday and Saturday night. Don't be put off by the neighborhood, as it is on a commercial street with not much going on at night, but a block away... More

Stayed here on a whim while in Brooklyn for a visit with my daughter. Was happy that the parking was included, although somewhat of a challenge fitting my SUV in the tiny space provided. We were, however, pleasantly surprised when we saw the room. It was immaculate, fairly spacious for NY standards, and had a fridge and microwave. The bed... More

Stayed four nights, only three blocks to catch the subway and the train station is right across the street. A little nervous late at night as it is not in the best neighborhood but we did not have any problems at all. Breakfast was standard for a Best Western, nothing fancy but the area was kept nice and clean and... More

The staff was great. The location near the subway and train was great. Didn't make it to breakfast so can't comment on it. Room was overlooking raised train platform, thought the noise would be an issue but after just a few hours didn't even notice it.

Had a good 4-night stay here. Very clean rooms with all amenities; extremely friendly and courteous staff. Convenient breakfast. Prices inexpensive for NY; a bit high by standards of other cities. 2 easy blocks to subway. Wouldn't feel comfortable wandering in this area late at night, but no concerns during business hours with plenty of people about.
