“Comfortable rooms and spacious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Stayed at the Sleep Inn Brooklyn Downtown in May 2012 with my friend. Location is slightly far from the subway line but it is still ok About 5 mins by walking. Reception is friendly enough, wi fi is good! They serve good breakfast especially the self made waffles. That was quite great! The price is a bit on the ex side if youre travelling alone but the amenities provided are ok. Basic toiletries are all provided for. There is also tourist information at the reception (maps, etc) Oh ya and newspaper as well. Overall i would say my experience at the hotel was pleasant.

This is perfectly managed place with efficient wi-fi and good breakfast (although you might want to avoid heating frozen fried eggs in the microwave). Due to Sandy hurricane, connections with Manhattan were not so great, but it is still a nice residential area with some convenient shops around. Stayed for a week, everything was OK.

We travelled to New York 4 days after Hurricane Sandy had hit and there was still a little upheaval within the transport system and the hotel under review. If I could given an overall rating of 3.5, that would be a fairer reflection.

Location

This Hotel is situated two blocks away from the nearest subway station - R line. Come out of the hotel, turn right up the hill and turn first right onto fourth Avenue. Walk until the juction of Fourth Avenue/25th Street, where you will see the subway entrances on each corner of the road - simple and a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. The R line is a slow train but there are opportunities en-route to Manhatten to transfer to various express trains. I would allow 30-40 minutes travel time to reach Mid town Manhatten.

The hotel is situated in a mostly residential neighbourhood. There is not much opportunity to eat out in the immediate vicinity. the area is very quiet and it seems safe so nothing to worry about there.

We travelled to the Subway Station Atlantic Avenue/Barclay Centre, where there are two major chain restaurants located. The Barclay Centre is the home of brooklyn's basketball team. Two restaurants that we tried in that area were Applebys and Buffalo Wild Wings. I would recomment the latter, if you enjoy loud sports bars.It is good fun and there are loads of TV's showing just avbout every type of American Sport. It is very busy and you will have to wait 20-30 minutes to be seated but it is worth the wait as the food is large and cheap.

Hotel

2 star is a fair reflection.
Breakfast is limited but ok.
Rooms are very small. We opted for a no-smoking room double room. Unfortunately, other people on the same floor were smokers and the fumes from their respective rooms affected the corridors and also seeped under our door. We were easy going to this, where we would have normally complained as there were Hurricane victims living therein and did not want to cause them any more hardship.

The double beds are large and comfortable.
The room decor is clean and modern.
The a/c units under the windows worked ok but were a little noisy,.
The shower was not the most powerful but was ok.
Only a very small wardrobe was available. This also had an iron and board squeezed inside. Luckily, we were tavalling light on this trip.
The hotel is situated adjacent to the Gowanus Expressway (flyover section), which does cause quite a bit of noise but this is MY after all. The room did vibrate when a heavy lorry passed by.
The room was visited on a dailt basis by cleaners but not cleaned that well. The floors were not hoovered and tea and coffee stuff not replenished. It just appeared that any visit was rushed.

Stayed here last week. Very reasonable price. Room was clean but small. Hotel smelled like cigarette smoke. The clientele may not have been their usual clientele. Seemed like alot of workers in town to help with the hurricane cleanup. The bed was good. The shower water pressure was not very strong. I only stayed here to sleep and shower so this hotel was ok for me.

I have been coming to this hotel for more than a year because of a work project in Brooklyn. The hotel is clean, well run and a great value for NY. While the neighborhood is mostly light industrial it is safe and easy to navigate. There's a stop for the F train 3 short blocks away which makes getting around Brooklyn or into Manhattan very easy. The wifi and breakfast are fee of charge, and though the rooms are small they are comfortable and very, very clean.

The hotel attracts many European visitors to NY, so conversations over breakfast take place in a wide variety of languages.

I was initially skeptical of the place because of the great price, but once I was there I was happy to see that it is simply a great value.

My husband and i stayed at Sleep Inn for 5 nights during October 2012. Hotel was easy to find, only a couple of streets form a subway. The staff were very helpful and friendly and had no probs checking in. The room was excellant and had a King size bed which was so comfortable and slept well each night. Towels changed each day. Breakfast was included and had a very good choice, could make own waffels, plus had sausages and eggs. Doughunts for breakfast too with coffee and juice!!!! 30 mins by subway to Manhattan was a bonus too. Daisy Dinner on 9th Street is a must to check out too. Would stay again if we re-vist New York.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel Oct. 8-11, I can say this hotel was way better than the one we stayed in Yonkers,NY. The hotel is in a neighborhood but you can see it off the highway. The staff there are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but if you are not going to be there and in city a lot you not going need it but to sleep. They helped us out a lot. The subway is 3 blocks from the hotel. We rode on the subway everyday to Manhattan and came back late. I felt safe walking to the hotel late nights. The community that the hotel is in is a good area. The area has a lot of different shops and restaurants. You just have to walk but the area is really nice. I would stay in this hotel again!!
