Location was not great in the middle of residential area with nothing really to do nearby. But the hotel was nice and for the price it was okay. It was pretty clean and safe! Would not recommend if you are planning to go out at night with kids. Okay if you are just a couple or a family who will sleep early.

Cons: dirty (pubic hairs everywhere, specially around the bed and bathroom, check my pics), smelly (tobacco), noisy (next to the highway), shakes a lot (metro), employees having breakfast with the guests and doing a mess, prostitutes taking "customers" to the hotel rooms. The location is near 2 metro stations but the neighborhood is very dirty and smelly.

In the room next to ours was a prostitute receiving customers all night. When we saw her standing next to the hotel we immediately understood that was a prostitute but we wouldn't guess that she was "staying" there too.
Besides that is very noisy and shakes every 10 minutes. It's near a highway and metro station.
It's also VERY dirty and smelly. Lots of pubic hairs around the bed and in bathroom. Check my pics.
The housemaid always leave the dirty sheets/ towels next to the breakfast room and touches the food with the gloves that she wears to clean. The other staff members have breakfast with guests and they do a mess with the food. It's disgusting.
I do NOT recommend this place.

I have so many good things to say about this property! I recommend this hotel for sure. It is about 2 blocks from the subway. There are plenty stores, restaurants, bars, liquor stores, and hair salons around within walking distance. The area is safe!! I walked around many times at night and encountered no issues. The hotel is clean, organized, and the staff is friendly. Mr. Dinesh checked me in and he was so nice (and handsome). He gave me information about the manager's reception on Saturday nights with wine and snacks. He was so friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The breakfast was very hot and filling. It is a full buffet. There are waffles, sausage links and patties, and eggs. Coffee, milk, and many juices to drink. The hotel is not very large, but that is ok. The beds are very comfortable and there are NO bedbugs or anything like that! That was my main concern!! The beds are clean as a whistle and the amenities are very nice, too! The front desk is attended 24 hours and there are cameras on site. I stayed in room 305 which was near the elevator and I recommend it. I will definitely stay again when I go back to Brooklyn.

Room Tip: I like the rooms near the elevator.

I guess you get what you pay for with this place. Staff were for the most part rude and unhelpful, came back one evening (around 6pm) to find the bed stripped and nothing else. When my wife informed the front desk staff she was met with raised voices. Didn't even offer to help with bags or show courtesy. Room smelled like bleach, bed felt like a fold out mattress. Close to the subway, numerous laundry mats & a few good cheap eateries, but otherwise avoid.

“Downtown Brooklyn” is a bit of a misnomer when it is 2 miles from downtown. Seems like any amenity this hotel has to offer is to compensate for some inconvenience. Free parking (8 spaces on the hotel property) and free on-street parking is nice; but be prepared to either take the subway, a taxi or your car to downtown Brooklyn. The hotel is clean enough (overwhelming smell of bleach at times); daily continental breakfast and small-but-well equipment exercise room all help to accept the night noise of the very busy and close elevated freeway. We stayed one night. Although front desk attendant was pleasant and answered questions, he never asked about our stay or hoped to see us return. Needless to say, we will not return.

Room Tip: Rooms with a front view on the 4th floor have a distant view of NYC. Do not stay in the room next t...

This is our second stay in the past four months. On both occasions we were met by friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and bright. The breakfast is your basic cereal, bagels, toast, coffee, juice, yogurt and make your own waffle set up. The managers reception was a nice touch and included chips, cheese, wine and beer, it could have done with some fruit. Would stay there again.

Not spacious but clean & comfortable. Love the sleep inn breakfast bar. Owners & staff helpful with directions & advice. Laundromat 2 blocks away. If you are happy to walk a few blocks subway close by, but would avoid the subway & walking home late at night. If your stay is brief & want to visit Big Apple sites maybe go for something closer.
