Brooklyn Bay Hotel is a relatively standard motel-style inn across Emmons Ave. from Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn. I stayed for two nights as part of a block of 19 rooms reserved for a conference.
Access to most of the rooms in the 4-story hotel is via standard exterior concrete walkways, but the hotel management has thoughtfully installed moveable clear plastic windbreaks along the outside of the walkways to prevent guests from getting wet in rain or snow.
The management was very helpful and accommodating in arranging the block of rooms, even making adjustments after the deadline date. The front desk staff was courteous, friendly and efficient at check-in and check-out.
My room was small, but exceptionally clean and nicely furnished--a pleasant surprise given the rather standard appearance of the exterior of the building. The bed was comfortably firm. There were plenty of pillows, extra blankets, and towels in the bathroom. Plenty of hot water for the shower, too.
Breakfast was another pleasant surprise, given the usual fare at motel breakfasts. Though the breakfast room was small, there were hot scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon available, and a waffle maker was hot and ready. In addition, the breakfast bar offered a selection of cold cereals, yogurt, and fresh fruit. I enjoyed a good, hearty breakfast.
There's awkward parking (free) available at the hotel in an underground garage and on the deck above the garage, but there are not enough parking spaces for all the rooms. Some guests may have to find parking spots on the adjacent streets. The streets aren't exceptionally crowded, but it is Brooklyn, after all, so you may have to search and walk a bit.
