A good hotel although location was slightly bleak; good 15 minutes walk to nearest subway. Staff in hotel were great and very helpful, and the breakfast was pretty good too. Queen bed was ultra comfortable!

I heard the door slamming repeatedly all night long only to find out it was the security gaurd, when I asked if that could stop it proceeded to get twice as loud! In effective staff, really unsafe part of Brooklyn stay away!

I booked this place for a trip for me and my mom. It was in a transitional phase from Comfort Inn to Red Lion Inn. For one, we could not find this place when we were walking in the neighborhood. No one had notified us that the name of the hotel has changed and that we should be looking out...

You should not expect too much for that price in NYC. It was okay. First of all the Hotel changed its name. We booked the hotel when it had another name, so the taxi driver had a rough time finding the hotel. The rooms did not look like the pictures at all. They were pretty old, but it was okay...

Booked the room online through booking.com, for what I thought at the time was a fair price. Once I arrived, found out that I was going to be overcharged on parking despite only parked there one night

The rooms are exceptionally small considering the price. Our beds were never made and when I complained they said they would take care of it. When the problem was not resolved, on the last day they finally told me that I couldn't have anything on the bed. A shirt, a towel? Really. One of the reasons I chose the hotel...

I will admit that I was a little concerned as some had complained about the location. The location is actually great. If you aren't used to New York, the "industrial" look of the area may put you off but it is just a few blocks to 4th where there are a lot of businesses. It is about a 10-15 minute...

We stayed there for four nights during our active sightseeing of New York. The room was cosy and had all the appliences and furniture we needed. The batrhroom was clean, but a little cold, since we were there in December and there is no heating in the bathroom. The heating was actually the only problem. It was not easy to...

I was given a horrible room in the basement. I cannot even imagine what kind of shady business goes on in this hotel, suffice to say a few of the other "guests" on the same floor were going in and out of their rooms at regular intervals (about 30mins) THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. imagine trying to get some sleep with doors...

Hello Annabluebird6, I apologize for the experience at our hotel during your stay. We do have rooms at the garden level which offers a view of our garden and provides a lot of natural light due to having a larger window. We do not in any way attempt to hide the fact these rooms are 50% below level, as a...

I stayed here on a Saturday night for a wedding. My boyfriend and I shared a king bed and the room was pretty tiny, as I walked into the room I basically walked into the bed. But it was comfortable and clean enough for just a 1 night stay. There's free breakfast from 6-9 and there's a small seating area...
