Overall a very good experience with this hotel. Clean, excellent repair, helpful & polite staff. Free parking is VERY limited. First come, first serve. That was the only frustration. However, already knowing what a fiasco parking is in NYC, it was still easier than having to try and find a place to park EVERY night. :)

Location is not the best, but the service is excellent! Jessica, the breakfast lady is so funny and helpful. The receptionists especially Tiffany has patience to answer my annoying questions, even the housekeeping employees, they are willing to help you. (I forgot their names). Being tourist is not easy, you know! (: I recommend this hotel.

Hotel, service and staff were excellent during our 10 night stay during the Christmas and New Year. The neighborhood of Bedford and Stuyvesant was dark and without any interesting places to see. 500 metres to the nearest metro station. Trip to Time Square takes about 30 minutes.

The location is convenient for those who want to explore Brooklyn area. The metro station is within walking distance. The hotel is very clean. They provide decent breakfast. However, don't rely on their Wifi services if you need high speed connection.

My boyfriend and I visited Brooklyn for a birthday party in Crown Heights and needed to find a location near by. This Best Western fit the need. Why I chose it: Location, free breakfast, free wi-fi and free parking. Location: Although I didn't take the train, there is a station super close to the hotel. I don't remember being disturbed...

For a NYC area hotel you can't beat the price. My room was cozy and clean. Hotel is located on Atlantic Ave a couple of blocks south of Fulton Street, lots of shops nearby and the neighbourhood is lively during the day....after dark is a different story. Parking is free but limited to 10 spaces on a first come basis....

After a pretty hectic work week my boyfriend and I had made plans to meet a friend for brunch on a Saturday. Since we would be in Brooklyn anyways the words "why not get a room?" came to mind. After using all hotel booking apps I could, I found that Hotwire gave me the best deal, though i did not...

This hotel is very nice and the staff were terrific!! The location is scary. We were fortunate to have "safety in numbers". We were going to the Barclay Centre to see a hockey game. it was a 15 min brisk walk and a 5min cab to the Centre. There are no stores around the hotel for convenience items.

Very disappointed!!! 1. the website says theres a swimming pool and there definitely isnt. 2. The "fitness" room has 2-3 bikes in it and thats it. 3. The parking lot holds only 5 cars so when i got there the front desk said its first come and its not guaranteed so I had to park 4 long dark blocks away....
