Sumner Hotel
Ranked #40 of 59 Brooklyn B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I stayed in Sumner Hotel as my house was flooded in hurricane sandy. Room was clean with good smell but had stains in bedsheets. Front desk were quite uncomfortable with us and talked to much in foreign language behind glass. But they were helpful after all. Small parking lot for 4 cars. Street parking is pain in day time. They have no concept of "Do Not Disturb" sign. Neither maids had any knowledge how DND looks or what it is. Lots of foods to eat around ( Taco Bell, McD, good local mostly hispanic food ). We never tried breakfast as it was flooded with guests. They proudly serves 3 hrs and 4 hrs stay to anyone.
Overall, its ok to stay there if u have no other choice. Cant really expect much.

Room Tip: Check your bed sheets and dont expect for DND sign.

We booked this as an affordable hotel for a trip to New York. Its really handily placed for the Flushing Avenue metro station which is just around the corner and can get you into Manhattan in 15 minutes. The area is perhaps not the greatest, but then we didn't have any problems and there are some useful shops nearby.

The hotel itself is new and modern, and nicely decorated. Rooms are a good size with all the amenities you should need including a tv and air conditioning.

The only real negative I had with the hotel is the breakfast room, its far too small for all the guests staying at the hotel, and the choice of foods is quite disappointing.

Spent 10 nights at the Sumner as it was much cheaper than hotels in Manhattan, only 4 stops on L-train. The room was a good size, however they could be a little cleaner. The breakfast room is very small and sometimes we had trouble finding a seat. They don't begin serving breakfast until 7:30 which is a little late, especially if you want to get into Manhattan early. The neighbourhood was not the nicest and would not recommend going out much after dark.

large comfortable and clean room. excellent bathroom.
breakfast area too small, cues likely. Plastic disposable plates and cutlery. breakfast selection doesn't inspire but I developed a liking for the fresh wafflels.
Neighbourhood outside appears a bit rough. It didn't want me to go out and explore.

Room Tip: top floor room has a good view

Firstly it is a cheap hotel in NYC so don't expect to much. It's located really close to a wheel chair accessible subway station (great if u have luggage) and has lots of useful cheaper stores and family restaurants near by. It is not in the nicest neighbourhood but for the price u would not expect that. Breakfast is very basic and the eating area is extremely cramped - easiest to just take back up to your room or go to ihop across the road. Clean, rooms serviced daily, common areas of a nice standard. They do rent rooms out for less than a full night however which means there are some pretty dodgy characters waiting around in the lobby. One day I needed to talk to the front desk and lined up behind a surprisingly eloquent crack head who rented a room for about 4 hours for $95, it was pretty gross though as he had all these big sores full of liquid on his face that he was absentmindedly picking and playing with. It was disgusting as I was worried he would pop one and the pus would get on me. Also I did get really annoyed one day when we had to move rooms because the toilet broke (we were there for 7 days) and they put us in a smoking room that stunk, it was on the second floor, there were ash trays in it too etc and no non smoking signs and we asked if we could be moved to a non smoking room and the manager (an Indian lady called minaliah or something similar to that) FLAT OUT lied and said it WAS a non smoking room. We insisted it stunk of smoke and she moved us to a room on a higher floor that did not have ash trays in it and had non smoking rooms signs Hard to recommend something when they straight out lie to your face.

The hotel is a new, quite pleasant three star but if you plan to party in manhattan and come back after 9:00 p.m. absolutely do not stay there. Neighborhood is dangerous. I am a former new yorker coming back to visit. The hotel was a good value for me but I only planned to go into msnattan in the daytime.

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.
