I had to stay one night in brooklyn and was soo tired looking for a place I ended up at the Galaxy hotel. The parking lot was a mess and I expected from the looks of the entrance that the room would be the same. To my surprise I requested something on the top floor, got to the room and... More

I can tell you for a fact having worked near the area.I though since it was new it might be a nice place to take my girlfriend for the night. Boy was I wrong !!! The major clientele that frequents this place are Hookers and their Johns. Don't believe the hype!!! You'd probably be safer sleeping on a park bench... More

The bed smelled. The room was not clean at all. We booked it from priceline and the location turned out to be pretty awful within the area we selected, and creepy. The room did not have a proper lock.

So I am a 24 year old guy that has stayed in a lot of hotels so pulling into the parking lot I thought I could handle it.. Boy was I wrong! The rooms were not clean, rooms down the hall had just been bug bombed. There were two signs hanging on the bulletproof glass that I remember very well.... More

My main concern were the bedbugs the last time .I stayed decent prices but what you see is what... More

I base my rating of 4 out of 5 based on the fact, that I knew the kind of place we were going to. It's a low budget hotel, and yes they do rent rooms by the hour if requested. But surprisingly, my stay there was a morning and afternoon, and it met all my expectations. Courteous quick staff, the... More

Anyone who complains about this hotel is just being picky. Honestly it's not that bad and what do you expect for such a cheap price? It's not going to be a 5 star haha. As long as you're not expecting many frills or a super lush environment, you're set. It's got all the amenities you'll need: a bed, tv, fridge,... More

I had to take a bath out the sink because that hotel was so dirty, when I pulled the sheet back it was as if they were never changed, the bathroom was filthy, the plumbing in the bathtubs was gross, the water back up when the shower ran. The hotel aint fit for a dog let alone a human being.... More

I read all the reviews posted here and I don't see what the negative views were about. Honestly the room I stayed in was pretty clean, the bathroom was clean as well. The sheets were fresh and the AC was off the hook. It was so damn hot this weekend, but the AC took no time to cool the room.... More
