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...

If you're looking for a budget hotel in a prime Brooklyn location you have found your place. The room was clean, and the service friendly. You can take the train straight in from JFK on the A line with easy access to the rest of the city. Walking distance to all the best of Boerum Hill & Park Slope.

We are here for a concert and staying at the Red Lion Inn. The staff is friendly and informative. The hotel is 7 blocks from the venue and a great set of shops.

As with most things, you get what you pay for. This Red Lion Inn was a great value for a 2 night stay in Brooklyn in a convenient neighborhood. But don't come in expecting luxury. The room itself was tiny, with one bed pressed right up against the HVAC unit, meaning at least one person is in for a breezy...
