“Great stay and walking distance to great entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

My financee and I stayed here for a weekend while our apartment was being renovated. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Convenient access to the trains and all the points of interest that Park Slope has to offer. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and the bed was comfy. I would highly recommend staying here to explore a new part of the city or convenient access to the rest of Brooklyn and Manhattan.

This hotel provides the basics very well. Clean room, breakfast, and nice staff. I travel globally and this hotel is just right for people who are traveling and not looking for a resort or luxury hotel. Price is perfect, room is great, what more can you ask for?

Clean rooms and good size with basic amenities provided like coffee machine,iron and dryer.The check in clerks are efficient and friendly, they will help you with directions you need.Safe neighborhood and it takes around 25 minutes from the subway to reach Manhattan which is 5 minutes walk from the hotel.Great value!!Will surely stay here again.

We stayed in room 514 - two beds. The room is definitely small, but clean. Beds were comfortable. The vertically-split door that we first thought was the closet door was actually for the bathroom. The bathroom is tiny, but sufficient. One half door had to be closed while in the bathroom in order to use the sink.
Our first morning (Monday) around 6 am we were awakened by shouting in the hallway that went on for at least an hour before we called the front desk and were told that they had received other complaints already. We had a long conversation with the manager later, after the police had come and spoken with at least one of the people involved. Turns out that this hotel, along with many others in the area, has some Superstorm Sandy 'guests', subsidized by FEMA, and it was a couple of these guests making all the noise. We were assured that this happens most frequently on Monday mornings and most other mornings are quieter. It appears impossible for the hotel to force them to leave. The Sandy guests are all on the 5th floor at this time. Warning if you are smoke-sensitive: the fifth floor always smelled of cigarette smoke, sometimes much worse than others.
We were offered a room on the 2nd floor, but countered that maybe the people creating the noise should move, since the 2nd floor is quite noisy. Not an option, as they have too much stuff in the room - they've been there over six months - and the room is in no shape to rent to other guests. We were also offered a 4th floor room directly below the room of the noisy people, but we declined that. We accepted the manager’s offer to refund one night's charge after we chose not to spend the day trying to find another place to stay and then move in the rain.

We had read reviews so knew not to count on the breakfast. It did not seem to matter what time we went down to check out breakfast offerings - they were always slim. Some days there were oranges and one day there were also bananas. One day there was no fruit. A couple days, we were able to get hard-boiled eggs. The coffee had no taste. There were always small cartons of yogurt and a waffle-maker, along with individual servings of cold cereal, bread and pre-packaged baked goods.

Hotel is located on the corner of 3rd Avenue and 13th Street and there is a subway station at the corner of 4th Ave and 9th Street, which was convenient for us.

We'd tentatively recommend it for its value and location, but caution against rooms on the 5th and 2nd floor and advise that you not count on breakfast.

Room was reserved on their website it gives you an option for up to 4 people in a room. At check in told that no more than two people to a room and that in the morning have to find another place to stay. The hotel was booked solid so they didn't have extra rooms. The main office was no help. Never again would i recommend this [--] hole franchise to anyone.

Stayed here for business. Close to subway (5 minute walk). Some good restaurants within a block or two. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Rooms are a bit small but clean. The main problem with the hotel was the noise. You could hear everything in the hallways and with some other guests partying, it was loud late into the night/early morning. The price is very good considering the other choices in the area but you may want to bring ear plugs.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing 3rd Ave and away from the elevator.
