At first sight the area is scary... but the hotel is Great!! The free breakfast buffet is awesome. The rooms are clean and it's within a couple blocks of the metro and right next to the railroad. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in a very busy area of Brooklyn, with surroundings ranging from prosperous small businesses to boarded-up buildings. The staff is very welcoming. I was impressed that when I passed through the lobby a couple of hours after registering, the person at the desk addressed me by name "Good evening, Mr. ~); and a different desk clerk did... More

The hotel looks nice but is not in the safest of neighborhoods. If you are doing business this is not a hotel designed for that. The rooms are nice but you may encounter noise, from the train. I would recommend not renting a car.

We had been on a cruise that ended at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. A cab to the hotel has a $25 dollar flat fee and a cab to LaGuardia is $45 flat fee. Still cheaper than the Cruise line transfer. The room we had (402) was really only big enough for one bed but it had two crammed in there.... More

I have stayed in other hotels in this immediate area and sorry I did not stay at this Best Western before. I was impressed right at the start with the professional demeanor of the staff. The room was fresh and new. Well built facility as I did not hear any traffic or train noise at all. Pro-tip: back into your... More

This hotel has a great location for visiting the city and has fantastic staff. Darryl was behind the desk when we arrived and was very helpful with finding parking as the hotel lot was full. He also gave us suggestions for dining and things to do. Every time I saw his smile behind the front desk, I smiled. Tavon, who... More

Stayed 3 nights in September. Got a great rate online, and the hotel was adequate for our needs. Staff was friendly, and helpful when we needed them. Darryl at the front desk was awesome. Breakfast was on the average side, and included egg patties, turkey sausage/bacon, cheese slices, DIY pancakes, Greek yogurt, and pastries (which were very good quality). There... More

I booked this hotel to attend the West Indian-American Labor Day Parade in Brooklyn (the largest parade in North America). I decided on this hotel because it was conveniently located to the carnival activities and was reasonable priced. The hotel is located close to bustling Nastrand Avenue and walking distance to the subway and the long island rail road. There... More

I'm staying at this hotel from Sunday-Tuesday, and I must say, this has to be the BEST hotel EVER!!!!!!!! Great customer service and the workers provided great customer. Tevon, Sharon, and Darryl (employees) were very professional and gave my weekend a good boost.
