“Affordable, clean, and convenient”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We stayed 2 nights at Sumner hotel (July 2012). The hotel had been freshly remodeled which made our stay quite pleasant. Very clean bathroom. Close to the subway station (5 minutes walk),
and if you have a car, the hotel offers free parking for 6-7 cars right in front of it. Breakfast was good but could have yogurt and fruits! It has bagel, Pancake (made by a very sympathetic lady), and toasted bread. We were there with my daughter and wife and didn't feel that the neighborhood was aggressive, though it was "interesting". There is a great pizzeria between the hotel and the subway station.

Is it the worst place in NY? No! But definitely not even close to a nice and pleasurable place to stay when you want to enjoy NY. The hotel is one block away from the train station (M and J lines), however, neighborhood is terrible! As much as some cab drivers refused to drop me off there! In Brooklin there are no yellow cabs, which means "no taximeter". The drivers ask the price they want for the ride (usd18 to drive me to Atlantic Terminal - 3.1miles!!!). The M train is not that bad, it brings you directly to midtown (16 stops!!!), but it doesn't work after 10PM, then, the option is J train and change to subway at Chamber St, which is an incredibly empty and dark place at night. The hotel itself is not that bad. Confortable, clean. And thats all. Honestly? Not worth it! Manhattan is a wonderfull place to explore day and night, but you cannot do it when you are affraid to go back to the hotel after 9-10PM! Once you decide to go to NYC, spoil yourself and allow yourself to pay more for a place in manhattan and really enjoy your time here! One hour and forty five minutes daily waisted to commute...you could do a lot with this time!
