I stayed two nights here with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed the clean, quiet rooms; the staff was very courteous and friendly, especially during the morning shifts. This place is near several bars and shops, and if you're visiting New York for the first time, do yourself a favor and get a bacon-egg-cheese at a bodega nearby -- you...

I am not in the habit of giving bad reviews to anything, as I always want to give the benefit of the doubt. I cannot in good conscience recommend Red Lion Inn and Suites in Brooklyn for several reasons: 1. Size of the room as represented in posted photos did not jive with the reality of the postage stamp-sized room...

We stayed at the Red Lion for one night to make our commute home from a wedding in Brooklyn more reasonable. The hotel definitely did not make a good impression upon check-in when they informed us that 1. you can have the wifi password, but it's currently not working (apparently this is true whenever it rains... great!) and 2. we...

The staff and management were always helpful and courteous. The breakfast is good here they have some hot food along with the regular stuff. Not all rooms have microwaves and very small mini fridge, don't plan on putting much in it. Out of the 4 nights I stayed there the WIFI didn't work for 2 of them.

Myself and 2 daughters stayed here for 4 nights to visit New York. Beds very comfortable but room quite small, plenty to eat for breakfast plates and cutlery are disposable,and they have very helpful staff.

We had a bad experience with a guest in the next room causing a disturbance. It continued through the night from and it took a few calls to front desk before eventually cops and ambulance were called - in total the incident went on for five hours. It wasn't really the fault of the hotel but after a 20 hour...

They let homeless enter the hotel, the first floor is full of them. Not safe at all for going with your family. The security of the hotel know about that but they dont do anything. Please do something about. The only one who where kind was the hispanic.

Hello gagugl_243621, Thank you for your review. Often times, people who work in the nearby area stop by the hotel to use our restroom facilities. We try to be sympathetic considering that bathroom availability is always an issue in the city however our security staff at the hotel always makes sure to prevent those that don't belong from entering the...

Hello Tracey F, I am flattered that you found our rooms to be cute! It's procedural for banks to hold the incidental authorization for 3-5 business days for a credit card, 7-10 business days for a debit card and up to 21 days for a gift card. Our staff is correct, all unused authorizations are released automatically after check out...

We were very pleasantly surprised ...room was very modern...only disappointment was that in our pleasure with room, based first night's stay, we left a generous tip. Amenities were lacking the next day:( IOW, housekeeping skimped on service the second day.

If you like being greeted with "check in isn't until 3" by a very bored front desk person. This is the place. We stored our bags and left. Of course it's on the creepiest street all car repair garages. Lobby is about big enough to hold a family of three. That's how many chairs there are. We can back at...

Dear Caroleame, I sincerely apologize for the lack of attention provided to you during your check in experience. Our rooms do not become available until 3 because we have to make sure that they are thoroughly cleaned from the time a guest checks out which is typically at around noon. It takes us about 3 hours to replenish the linen,...
