“OK Stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

While my wife & I were delighted to see that Brooklyn now has more hotels to chose from, this Best Western is great because it is located in a wonderful area of Sheepshead Bay. The staff were very accomodating with a wonderful attitiude. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The ree breakfast was more than adequate. There were two problems-one was limited parking. We got back to the hotel late one night and had a problem with parking. We ended up parking down in the staff area in a spot that wasn't a real spot or our choice was to park in the street. The second problem were small bugs found in the bathroom. We informed them to exterminate.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the back of the hotel. The front faces a main street where buses start goi...

Prior to our arrival, I had requested the room be cleaned for allergies, which I was assured was not a problem. Upon our arrival I examined the room, noticing a faint smell of smoke coming from the bathroom combined with a visual of a bit of mold on the shower curtain, I could see "how well" the front desk clerk cared for our needs. We hoped that the smell would subside, by morning, it smelled as if the room had gone to a bar partaking in a smoking contest the night before. Another desk clerk said that maybe a candle was lit to "cleanse" the room. Wanting to start our sightseeing as soon as possible, we asked for another room. We left our phone number with the clerk for the manager to call us to discuss our displeasure thus far. Cutting to the chase, we left our number with each clerk on a daily basis, given excuse after excuse as to why we never received a call from the manager, even to the point where we were told that messages were left on our hotel phone, which was not the case at all. Here's the kicker, upon finally getting to speak to the manager, practically chasing him down in the lobby, he explained that he was on his vacation and didn't work so he couldn't call me. Either we were lied to about him getting the messages the entire time or he was trying to dodge any resolution. I had to call corporate to get any kind of straight response from the front office. The only positive was that the cleaning staff was nice and one clerk was trying to be as helpful as possible. They still haven't called back directly to resolve this with me. We are beyond disappointed and will make sure to avoid this poor choice at all costs (pun intended).

We were delighted with our stay here! The hotel is very clean and well maintained. The front desk staff are friendly and very efficient and helpful. The room is beautiful, the size is appropriate for the location and the widows open!

The location is nice with great restaurant options within walking distance. There is free parking and some very clever vending machines.

Don't hesitate to book here!!

Spent one night at BWP Brooklyn Bay Hotel, and it was a very pleasant one! We chose this hotel for its proximity to Coney Island. Room was nice, clean & comfortable, staff was helpful and friendly, breakfast was good! Free parking on-site was so convenient. Bathroom towels had a slight off-scent, could have been the kind of detergent? But otherwise, no complaints! If staying over for Coney Island attractions and looking for a hotel with a reasonable price, this BWP is a great choice.

Room Tip: The hotel has 3 floors. I requested a 3rd floor room to perhaps minimize noise, but it was a quiet...

Brooklyn Bay Hotel is a relatively standard motel-style inn across Emmons Ave. from Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn. I stayed for two nights as part of a block of 19 rooms reserved for a conference.

Access to most of the rooms in the 4-story hotel is via standard exterior concrete walkways, but the hotel management has thoughtfully installed moveable clear plastic windbreaks along the outside of the walkways to prevent guests from getting wet in rain or snow.

The management was very helpful and accommodating in arranging the block of rooms, even making adjustments after the deadline date. The front desk staff was courteous, friendly and efficient at check-in and check-out.

My room was small, but exceptionally clean and nicely furnished--a pleasant surprise given the rather standard appearance of the exterior of the building. The bed was comfortably firm. There were plenty of pillows, extra blankets, and towels in the bathroom. Plenty of hot water for the shower, too.

Breakfast was another pleasant surprise, given the usual fare at motel breakfasts. Though the breakfast room was small, there were hot scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon available, and a waffle maker was hot and ready. In addition, the breakfast bar offered a selection of cold cereals, yogurt, and fresh fruit. I enjoyed a good, hearty breakfast.

There's awkward parking (free) available at the hotel in an underground garage and on the deck above the garage, but there are not enough parking spaces for all the rooms. Some guests may have to find parking spots on the adjacent streets. The streets aren't exceptionally crowded, but it is Brooklyn, after all, so you may have to search and walk a bit.

Room Tip: All rooms face either busy Emmons Avenue or the slightly less busy Nostrand Avenue; try to get a roo...

Rooms are Ok. Management and service though are just one big disappointment.
Some of the staff were quite helpful, but the manager!...
Never again.

My stay was one night I attended a meeting in the city and wanted to stay in brooklyn to visit friends. the location was nice the room was clean, sheets and towels were clean and white. the bed was comfortable. I checked in early and there was no problem the staff at the front desk and cleaning staff were very friendly and helpful. My only issue was that the wall seemed to be thin becuase when I went to bed I could here the people in the next room doing what two people in a hotel do and I had to put my Ipod in my ear not to hear it and go to sleep all and all i enjoyed my stay
