I had read some of the unpleasant reviews and was unsure what I would encounter as we would be there for six nights. To be honest, my stay was not bad at all. The room although quite small, was clean and efficient as it contained a small microwave and a small refrigerator. The hotel is located near the Long Island... More

I was not expecting much when I drove up - it is in a very industrial area of Brooklyn. The rooms were very clean and comfortable - the air conditioning kept the room nice and cool on one of the hottest/humid days of the year. Also had a small fridge and microwave in the room. The room was on the... More

We wanted to venture out and see Brooklyn. This hotel was in an unsafe neighborhood, which I did not find in any of the reviews. The rooms are small, there are only about 8 complimentary parking spaces on the property and the room needed to be updated. Not worth the price when there are nicer hotels for less.

Even though this property is in a very run-down section of Brooklyn, the short walk during daylight hours to the subway took less than 5 minutes. The staff was all exceptionally friendly and helpful. The morning complimentary breakfast was fresh and hot. This property is well worth the price and only 15 minutes to Manhattan by subway.

See all previous comments. We stayed at other BWs and they all had better accommodations, etc. Brooklyn Arena has only location going for it..... We were there for six nights and the room was cramped for four adults. Thing is we booked months in advance and the hotel could have done better......

I booked 6 rooms for a wedding. Staff was very accommodating in getting us grouped together which made sharing make up and sewing kit convenient. The rooms were clean and updated. The windows are excellent as we were not bothered by L train out front. Parking is extremely limited but there is a parking garage within a half block. Excellent... More

This hotel is located on a busy street in a rather industrial looking part of Brooklyn but once you enter the hotel, you'll find clean and comfortable accomodations. The complimentary breakfast was very good; we were there for a week and there was enough variety of breakfast items during our stay. Parking was free in the small parking lot at... More
