We mistakenly booked at this place for 2 days in June. If you're interesting in renting by the hour, this is your place. We should have realized what a dump it was when the front desk is hidden behind a glass wall. We were charged a huge "no show" fee because we didn't cancel one day online. Even after I... More

Rooms are completely basic. They don't have a coffee pot, microwave, mini fridge, ironing board, or any of the other extras that have become almost standard in hotels these days. Not even those little bottles of shampoo and conditioner! And the "closet" was a row off 4 hooks on the wall. All of this we could have overlooked for the... More

Whatever was going on ourside our room sounded like a combination jackhammer and drill. The noise level was comparable to that to a leaf blower INSIDE the room. The WiFi allows only one computer on it at a time; that might have been fine but even single people have multiple devices with WiFi contact now, and we were a couple... More

If you are reading this review then you are probably going out of the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. Stayed there for 3 nights before catching a ship. The taxi from LaGuardia was a bit more than $30 dollars. The rooms were small and very basic and need updating. The room had some outside noise. Wi-Fi worked ok, couple of porno stations... More

Positives: Off-street parking (not secure, but there is CCTV); good shower, real bar of soap, microwave and refrigerator, very convenient to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal (but parking at the Cruise terminal is $20 or more a day; I did not notice any secure off-site lots) and the Cobble Hill and Carol Gardens neighborhoods, as well as Red Hook, of course,...

I came to Brooklyn to attend the West Indian- American Labor Day Parade. I chose this hotel from a blind search on Hotwire based on the 3-star rating and free parking. This was an over rating and at best should be rated 2-stars. The reservation was prepaid and non-refundable else I would have checked out before time. This hotel is... More

The location isn't too bad but the place is horrible! The elevators & hallways were dirty and smelled like cigaretts !! When I took the sheets off the bed I found burnt marks and hair all inside . I think the only good part was the flat screen TV but like I said you get what you pay for it's... More

The value is fairly good, because the location is alright and you can park your vehicle safely for no additional cost. The nearest subway is a 15-20 min fairly pleasant walk through Brooklyn - we actually walked from the hotel to Manhattan, using Brooklyn bridge, and it's a great way to explore that part of Brooklyn and get awesome views...
