If you are the budget conscious type and you don't mind spending the better part of 45 min to get into town then this is the hotel for you.
Since the hotel is part of the Choice hotel group you get buffet breakfast included, there's free internet in the lobby though only one PC and 15min max per person.
We had a king size room on the 4th floor(water side) with distant view of the Statue of Liberty which was a bonus.The room was good size and clean with en-suite bathroom, staff very helpful and pleasant.

This hotel had everything that my family needed. We stayed from July 30th till Aug 5th. Free Parking at the back of hotel, or on the street. (New York Parking elsewhere is COSTLY!) Continental Breakfast included Boiled Eggs, Sliced Bread and Bagels, Butter, Jams, Cream Cheeses, Toaster, Apples, Coffee, Tea, Orange and Apple Juice. (USE THE ROOM SUPPLIED TRAY!) Seating in Dining area is limited so arrive before 9AM. Opens 6:30-9:30AM SHARP. The older woman who works there is Ma. She's ABSOLUTELY Great! She works hard and deserves praise!
They have an On Site High Speed Internet Computer.
King Size bedroom was great, however if you have kids, get the 2 double bedroom. It's a bigger room, and well worth it! Staff was very friendly and helpful.
We used the subway system and parked the minivan all week. 49th or 53rd St. Station is 5 to 8 minutes away. Safe ethnic area. Mind you own business and don't look too much like a tourists! Food and liquor is located near subway stations. Chinese, Pizza, Latino foods. Great Prices! Grab a Subway Map and study it well! I recommend a 7 day MetroCard (PRICELESS!). Adult- 27.00. Children 12 or less- FREE.
IMPORTANT- Do your homework and Google NY attractions by transit or by car by using the Sleep INN Brooklyn Map, and GET DIRECTIONS.
We definitely would come back!

Well driven hotel, spacious and clean room with all the necessary amenities, and very comfortable bed. Helpful and friendly staff. The "Morning Medley" free continental breakfast is more than continental, with a choice of bagels and bread, along with boiled eggs, cheese, different jams and peanut butter spread. They even have juices and fruit choices. Location is just about 5 minutes walk from the subway R line. Easy access from JFK airport. Three blocks away from 5 th. avenue in Brooklyn, and you have a lot of shopping choices. Sunset Park is also within walking distance - great place to see the skyline of Manhatten and Statue of Liberty. Will definitely stay there again if we visit New York next time.

Although the neighborhood looks questionable, the Sleep Inn in Brooklyn is an awesome deal. The only negative thing about this place is the minimal parking. It's only a short walk to the Subway stop, and we even had a view of the Statue of Liberty from our room. Would stay again in a heart beat.

My husband and I along with our family friend visited NY for our Nephew wedding; we didn't want to stay in the City so we booked with Choice Hotel. The Sleep Inn was great. Hotel is very clean and the continental breakfast was awesome. The rooms were a little small but what the heck they were very comfortable this room had both a microwave and refrigerator. I will diffidently recommend this hotel.

This is a newer hotel. The facilty is clean, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are in very good condition. Great rates for NY. Subway is 4-5 block walk. A first glance you will "wonder" about the neighborhood in which it is located. I walked back from the subway at 11 PM and felt safe. The hotel is not located near any attractions. You will need to drive or take transit to see ANY sights and unless you are looking for a local dive, you wil need to travel for food. If you want a "locals" Brooklyn experience this is the location. Small parking lot is free. Despite the limited parking I did not get a sence there was a "lack of parking" issue.

Lovely hotel, helpful and friendly staff, great breakfast. Nothing to fault with it.
Only downside is the location, I had read this. Now I am glad I still booked this hotel and it was worth it. You just have to see past the location, there is always cabs and car service if you would rather.
