    « Great place to stay in Brooklyn! »

    Easy parking is a bonus! Friendly, efficient staff. Clean rooms which include Wifi. Very reasonably priced with a great location. Including breakfast is wonderful and a real time saver! Plan on returning soon.

    « Very unprofessional and rude staff »

    We had booked online and had paid full. Still they took a security deposit of 50 dollars during our check in. The room was very small with hardly any place to walk around the bed, leave alone to keep a suitcase. Breakfast food quality is not good at all. To top this, the staff at the front desk are too rude. We decided to check out two days early ... the place is so bad. The final straw was when the lady at the front desk Lulu refused to give us a receipt. And neither did they give back our security deposit of 50 dollars. Don't go by the good reviews and stay away from this place will be my advice.

    The motel was very clear, parking available. The best experience was our check in clerk, Lulu. She was courteous, helpful,efficient and a very pleasant young lady. An asset that any hotel would love to have.

    « Convenient Location and Overall Nice Place »

    I stayed for 4 nights and was lucky to have a room with a view of Manhattan! The room itself was small, but cozy and clean. The air unit in the room was quite loud, and the noise from the hallway was also quite loud, though I was probably the only one who was there for work over a weekend! However, noise from outside the hotel was not a problem. The location is right next to a subway stop so this made it easy to get around Brooklyn and Manhattan. The staff was wonderful! Everyone was friendly and helpful and I got a lot of needed information from them to help make my stay even better. The morning breakfast was convenient. There is one store nearby and the room had a refrigerator. Overall nice place and I would recommend to others as a no-frills (unless you get that nice view) reasonably priced hotel.

    « Enjoyed my stay »

    I stayed here and enjoyed my room. Appreciated the customer service and the parking lot was convenient, as the hotel is very close to the subway for jaunts into the city. I ofund the staff to be polite and my room was clean and quiet.

    « Used UA miles »

    I used UA miles to book a room at this hotel due to the heat wave New York had in August 2016. Maybe because I was not paying directly to the hotel I was not moved from assigned room 208, which faces a wall (although not in front of my nose), to a higher floor as was done on July 25, 2016 when I paid dearly for a room. By the way, high or low, the rooms are very, very, very small. I was not even allowed to take a look at room 208 either. Gia, from the front desk, said that is not allowed (?). At Millennium Hilton I was allowed to take a look at a room; Hilton Manhattan East allowed it also; so did Home2 Suites, LIC. Ah, but those are Hilton hotels. The air conditioner worked well and the mattress and one-half pillows were comfortable. Breakfast is good and room and bathroom were clean but I was very disappointed.

    « Lack of Customer Service Skills/Professionalism »

    I spent one night at this Brooklyn location. My check in went well and the front desk clerk was great; however, and as I walked up to the front desk to proceed with my check out, the front desk clerk looked at me and my husband and said, is there anyone left in the room. This is not how I expected to be greeted. I stated no and she took my room keys and asked if I needed a receipt. There was no smile, asking me how was my stay, or letting me know there was continental breakfast. I was appalled at her lack of professionalism and as a new award member, I am concerned and will not return to this location. I travel often for work and I spend significant amount of time in New York, but thanks to this staff person this location will not receive anymore of my time or money.

    « Party of 4 »

    4 females visiting New York for 50th birthday celebrations. We had booked one room but on arrival we decided to book another room as they were too small for 4 people plus luggage!! After moving to another room everything was fine. Staff were friendly, helpful & knowledgeable, free wi fi, the hotel offers a breakfast which is not 5 * standards but is more than adequate, quiet location but the subway is literally out the front of the hotel. Good value for money hotel, would recommend and would stay here again.

    « Just ok »

    The rooms are small and dated but I've seen smaller in Brooklyn. The breakfast was far from great. The parking is over priced as is the hotel. Tv and internet were ok. We were concerned about security as the door to the elevator was away from the lobby and not monitored. Not many restaurant choices nearby.

    « Would stay again! »

    This hotel is good for the cost and access to Manhattan and Brooklyn area. The subway entrance was right outside the hotel which made for easy access to and from Manhattan and Brooklyn itself; which, we enjoyed having never visited that area. The restaurants around the hotel (on 5th) were worthy. There is a grocery store next to the hotel if you need anything. The Greenwood Cemetery is right on 5th - so lovely to explore. The room was okay - nothing fancy nor shabby - pretty standard. The breakfast was okay and it gets one going until you reach your destination where you can grab whatever you need.There is also coffee / hot water pot in room so that was beneficial. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Would consider staying again for sure.

    Great hotel, great location, awesome atad and of course free breakfast. Very close to Manhattan with subway or uber. I would go back anytime and recommend this hotel to anyone. Muy buen hotel, tiene una buena localización y muy buena atención al personal. Para ir a Manhattan solo tomas el tren afuera del hotel e igualmente de regreso.

    « I've stayed here plenty of times but... »

    Over all this is a good hotel for the money and with that said it has easy access to Manhattan. Close to the subway and uber ride isn't to bad. Over the service was ok. One serious issue that I had was that the fire detector in my room was not even there. The chances of s fire a slim but my issue is that what if there is one and I die in my sleep from smoke inhalation. I've stayed there a lot in the past but that scared me a little. They did actually move my room higher and put us on the side of the hotel were you could see pretty good view of Manhattan. Overall I will stay again next time I'm in NYC.

    « Hidden Gem »

    The Best Western Plus Prospect Park is a hidden gem, great value. The rooms are very clean and well appointed-mini fridge, hair dryer, and a sanitized remote control! Traveling into NYC is a breeze--the R train is steps from hotel. The front desk staff patiently assisted me with train, bus, taxi information/schedules. The neighborhood is quite, easy to walk around-visit Baked in Brooklyn bread company, stroll thru the beautiful grounds at Green-Wood cemetery. Often with busy travelers, hotels blur together. What makes this hotel unique is the staff....very friendly, accommodating, and informed about Brooklyn and NYC.

    « Great spot in Brooklyn »

    Great location and great staff. Our room was clean and in good condition! The R subway is literally right across the step and is four stops from Barkley Center, which is a hub for New York City subways. There is parking next to the hotel!

    « Good Location/ Very nice Staff »

    We enjoyed our stay at Best Western Plus because it had such a good location for subway, small grocery store, deli & sandwich shop, good food delivery. The breakfast was decent and very accommodating staff made our stay better.

    « Good place to stay for a short visit. »

    Nice hotel less than 1 minute from the 25th street subway station with easy access to Atlantic Center and downtown Manhattan. . The rooms were clean and the bed very comfortable but wish they provided full size pillows. We were in room 405 and had a good city view. The dining room is very tiny and the hot breakfast was average but not great. The staff were efficient and friendly but not very accommodating. We wanted a late check out but was denied even though we were aware the hotel was not fully booked we was prepared to pay extra.

    « Excellent experience - we have already booked a return stay. »

    Staff at the Best Western, especially Mylon, were extremely helpful and friendly. The experience we had was extremely positive and we have already booked a return stay at the hotel. The hotel is very clean and the breakfast was excellent. It is convenient to a subway stop and many restaurants and shops.

    « Does what it says on the tin. »

    Clean comfortable rooms and the chance to catch breath after a stressful trip over the Pond. Ok its not the best location in the world, but the subway is right outside the door so you can go anywhere. The breakfast is basic but plentyful, though the plastic kfs and paper plates arent great and the limited space to sit was also an issue that will hopefully change with the refurb advertised in the lobby and I have to acknowledge that previously we've been spoiled with a great diner across the street from the hotel. There is a C mart next door so you can get any bits you desperately need. Staff were helpful and I did kinda feel guilty when we dropped off our left luggage because of all the bags the lass on the desk had to shift to fit ours in (sorry again). For a budget overnighter in NYC it was spot on.

    « Best place to stay prior to a cruise. »

    We really appreciated the front desk staff, especially Judy. When we needed directions or restaurant suggestions she was so eager to help us and whether it was how to get somewhere or where to eat she hit the nail on the head. And, never once did she act as though it was a bother to help us. She seemed to enjoy helping us have a trouble free stay in the NYC area.

    « Great hotel for NYC visit. »

    This is a great hotel for service and location to NYC area sites. Across the street from subway into the city. Staff at this hotel are extremely helpful for anything from restaurant suggestions to directions. We were super satisfied with this hotel. The front desk staff, esp. Judy, made our plans go smoothly. She was always eager to help us with whatever information we needed with a beautiful smile on her face.

    « Great value for money hotel with fantastic staff »

    Hubby and I just back today from a 7 day stay here, in summary great stay at a great hotel. Initially we booked a hotel near Central Park and then realised how much money we were saving by booking here. Read many mixed reviews and all I can say is some people are too fussy. We stayed in room 608 and had views out over Manhattan skyline. Room had 2 very big beds in it and complementary toiletries. Coffee machine supplied but there was usually coffee in breakfast room. Fridge was a real bonus for keeping water chilled which we picked up from supermarket next door. Room was kept clean by great housekeeping staff. Furniture a bit tired but reading reviews I believe it is due for an update. Complementary breakfast was more than adequate to start your day, hotel we stayed in last year always ran out very early. So handy for train, on doorstep, R train which takes you straight to Manhattan. We explored lots of Brooklyn, even went to Coney Island. Greenwood cemetery should be on your to do list, Brooklyn botanic gardens and Brooklyn museum. Shopping at Fulton Mall is good value but go during the day. Turkish restaurant next door is great and we believe a trip to Monsignors is good too....ask reception staff. Head up 25 street on to 5th avenue and try pastries at Baked in Brooklyn. Think that just about covers it, or have I forgotten anyone........of course I have....front desk staff were so helpful especially Mylon and Judy....they paid us to mention them. Thanks guys for a great stay in a great hotel. PS. Just remembered....there are 2 computers and a printer for guests which allowed us to print out our tickets Forgot to say, so much quieter from street noise aspect compared to Broadway where we stayed last year.

    « The staff is so sweet and helpfull »

    We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel!!! The subway R line towards queens takes approximately 40 minutes to Times Square, a bit long time but the sub worked perfectly. If you got time left to spend, the go to the Greenwood cemetery it is so beautiful.

    « I loved this place »

    last minute need to stay in NYC for next day flight from LeGuardia, and this was perfect. Subway stop right outside the building with easy access into Manhatten. 50 min driver ride to LeGuardia for around $60, hotel is clean, staff are way more friendly and helpful than someone from NYC should be expected to be. Rooms are modern, clean, quiet and functional. I will be back.

    « Great Staff »

    Lulu at the desk was a delight I encountered her on several different shifts and she always had a smile. Every staff person I encountered had a smile and was excited to help. The breakfast was hot. Only issue was the small breakfast space, but that was being addressed

    « Worse customer service »

    Paid $300.00 to stay in a basement of a hotel, feel very claustrophobic, room was small. Asked the front desk if I can change my room to a different room, got a very rude response. Worse customer service I ever got. Can not believe this hotel got a 4 star hotel; its more like a 1 star hotel. Carpet was dirty and furniture has excessive wear and tear.

    « Nice place in Brooklyn, Parking & Subway access »

    The Best Western Prospect Park is a fairly new facility. The rooms are cozy but comfortably sized. The entire facility was clean and well maintained. All of the staff we met were friendly, helpful and efficient. . The parking is split about equally between a street level lot and a garage around the corner under the hotel. I would probably want to be in a group of at least 2 when parking in the garage as it seems isolated. About 15 of the approximately 50 parking spots were available when we returned at approximately 11:30 pm. We were there over a Saturday night in mid-August. The breakfast area was tight and busy as was the overflow room. The breakfast was good. It included waffles (one iron), scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages and other standard items. We used our car but the ?R? subway station is on the block allowing easy access to the city. We would definitely consider this property when staying in Brooklyn again.

    « Average Quality Hotel »

    I found a room at the Best Western for the Labor Day Weekend after planning last minute. This was the closest hotel I could find with availability in close proximity in Brooklyn for the Caribbean Day Parade. The hotel is located in the Prospect Park area of Brooklyn. From my view the area is quiet with not much going on. It is located right off of 278, a major route throughout Brooklyn. There is a grocery store next door to the hotel, with access to the 25th street train station which is convenient. For people not familiar with the transit system though, beware that in order to get the train to 25th Street off the 4th Avenue train, must take the "R" in order to get dropped off at the 25th street stop. If you take the "N" you will be let off on 36th street and will have to walk back. Now because myself and my friends had no intention of sleeping, because we were there to party, it was not a big deal. I read other reviews prior to my booking that stated the rooms were small, and that is an understatement. The pictures on the website do not show the real size and give it any justice. With a double bed room, there is not much room to move around. The space between the bed and furniture is maybe a foot; very tight. The bathroom is okay, but noticed the sink filled with water just to brush your teeth. The furniture had dents and chips in it, could use an upgrade. The pictures on the website are not accurate with the rooms and lobby. There is parking at the facility, with additional parking underground around the corner, that they fail to tell you unless you ask because the parking lot right next to the hotel is full. I was told that parking was $18 at check-in, but my final bill stated $24.83 ($22.50 plus tax). I did appreciate the front desk allowing me to get my full 24 hours worth by leaving my vehicle in the lot after check out to attend the festival. If you know New York, parking is tight and you are better off taking the train. There are ice machines only on 2 floors of the hotel. The breakfast offered is okay. They offer a waffle machine to make yourself some waffles, liquid eggs, bacon and sausage in a pan, coffee, juice, toast and muffins. If you prefer you can also go to Dunkin Donuts which is right across the street. In addition beware of charges added to your card. I booked my reservation on booking.com and was not told that they hold an additional $50 on your card when you check in. In my case I was charged twice for my room, and had a pending charge for 4 days after leaving. Contacted the hotel and not given much help in correcting the transaction that was pending. Ultimately had to contact my bank to clear the pending charge. Overall when I am in Brooklyn again I don't think I will stay at that particular hotel, unless it's my only option. The space is too small for the price paid and having to deal with bad accounting practices.

    We were coming in from upstate to visit our son in Park Slope. From booking to check out was no muss no fuss. The staff was so professional and very helpful. Our room with a king size bed was immaculate and the view from the 9th floor was beautiful. There are grocery stores less than a block away; as is the subway. My son lives a few blocks away, and the walk was enjoyable. We will always stay at Best Western Plus!

    « Nice hotel »

    I was pleased with the hotel. The room was clean, and the view of Manhattan from my window was beautiful. Paid parking for only $25 a night. Subway right next to the hotel and 20 min ride to downtown. Breakfast was nice. The only thing I didn't like is that room does not have good sound isolation. Some loud people came in at 3 AM and woke me up.

    « Tiny Rooms with Broken Stuff and a Bad View. Bad Service. Bad Location. »

    We booked this hotel because it was recommended by TripAdvisor. When we go there, the machine that made keys was broken, so for our entire stay the staff was having to escort customers to their rooms and let them in. This would've been just a nuisance, if they weren't also ambivalent to the inconvenience. Staff would have us go wait by our door and then arrive a few minutes later, after trying to pawn off the task on the housekeeping or maintenance staff. Adding to this was the fact that the TV was broken, the furniture was beat up, the room was tiny, and our view taken up by a giant generator. We could also hear people arguing in the halls through the thin doors. Also worth mentioning was that the "continental breakfast" was some Grade D prison fare. This all would've been excusable if the hotel was close to stuff, but somehow we found this hotel is the only place in New York City which is close to zero things. 0/10 would not recommend.

    Chose this hotel for a recent nyc visit based on trip advisor reviews, and very glad I did! Convenient location, on site parking, and subway stop right outside the door! Friendly and helpful staff, especially evening clerk Rachel who suggested restaurants nearby. Rooms are comfortable, if a little small, but that's a city hotel. Breakfast adequate with a meeting room available for overflow. Half size pillows were ok size wise but could have been firmer. Spacious, clean bathroom. Although 6 yrs old, hotel is starting to show some wear and tear.....breakfast room cabinets, cabinets in the room, and some floors. Overall, I would recommend and would definitely stay here again!

    « Good price for Boathouse wedding in Prospect Park »

    The hotel gave us a wedding block deal of $150/night with $18/day parking. The rooms were super clean, and the folks at the front desk were super helpful and pleasant. $22 cab to boathouse from here. Easy subway ride. Cool Peruvian bar on the same block of 4th.

    « Beautiful Hotel, Great Staff, Awesome Location »

    This hotel was absolutely perfect. The employees all always had smiles on their faces and seemed to legitimately enjoy their work. The location of the hotel may seem a bit scary at first but just a few blocks away from the hotel are tons of restaurants, pubs and little boutique shops. The train is right outside of the entrance of the hotel and is a direct line to Manhattan taking only about 20 minutes. Breakfast had ton of variety and the breakfast attendant Ashley was such a delight. I had the pleasure of speaking with the GM Peter Reyes before I left and was so glad I did. You could really tell that he puts his heart and soul into his hotel to make sure quality and service are number 1. Thanks Mr. Reyes. Will definitely be back!

    « Nice Hotel in Brooklyn, New York »

    The staff is very courteous. The lobby and breakfast area are located in the cellar so there are no windows. Was assigned room 209 but asked for a high floor and got room 906. It has a beautiful Manhattan view. Room very clean throughout; comfortable bed and "one-half" pillows which I found very convenient; coffee in the room and real milk; two elevators which during my stay were running fast; breakfast area small but with enough food to please all; bathroom very clean although the bathtub is slippery - so watch out (no handrails either). Subway (R line) right next to hotel.

    I had a very nice stay at this hotel, after driving my son cross country to his new home in Brooklyn. I slept like a dog. Sheets, soap, towels, shampoo all high end items. Hotel was clean and bed for comfortable. For New York area, $100 for a night was very reasonable. Found plenty off good food nearby: Turkish, Chinese, KFC, Deli and Italian. I felt safe walking the neighborhood after dark. Mixed economic and cultural neighborhood, where I am co for table. Subway nearby.

    We had a very good experience. Staff were very helpful. It was great to have a parking lot to keep our car while we were in NYC. The subway station is incredibly convenient. Having a grocery store and a couple of restaurants immediately nearby was awesome. Prospect Park is nearby--be sure to check it out!

    « Bad choice »

    You don't get what you pay for. Service is really poor. Breakfast is low cost and no space to seat. You are not welcome here ! The only plus is the location just next to the Metro station. But I'm sure you can't get better value in Brooklyn.

    « Great value hotel shame about the location »

    We stayed for a couple of nights during a weeks visit to New York. I thought it might be fun to try Brooklyn as I had read good things about the regeneration and expected to find some fun places to visit and eat whilst also using the nearby subway to head into Manhattan. Well the subway worked out well, but the locality had absolutely nothing to offer. The only real dining options within a reasonable walk of the hotel are fast food outlets and the odd middle eastern restaurant / take out. Anyway we did find the hotel quite adequate. The rooms are small but the air con worked ok (it was 90 outside). Their was a complimentary breakfast of sorts. They had hot eggs, sausage and you could make waffle's but the small breakfast area gets very crowded so not really a highlight of the stay. Think Days Inn sort of quality and you won't be far off the truth here. A final word on Brooklyn. We did go to the Botanical Gardens which are beautiful and we also walked through the Brooklyn Heights area and it looks much more promising so if we come again we will try and stay in that area rather than 4th avenue location of Best Western.

    « Nice place »

    We found this place on booking.com and enjoyed our stay very much. Rooms are pretty ok (a bit small but ok), cleaned thoroughly daily, large breakfast buffet, and close to subway (100 ft). Fast and free Wi-Fi. Will probably stay again here next time.

    « Would Stay Again »

    Definitely pleased with this place. Would absolutely stay here again. Less than a block from the subway. Worst thing is that the elevators are a little slow, and the layout is a bit odd. The bed was very comfortable, and the internet is nothing to sneeze at. Delicious breakfast too.

    I've stayed at this hotel twice now with my husband and two kids, and would definitely stay again. It's a great location in Brooklyn, with easy access to downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan. The subway station is right in front of the hotel (R line). There is on site parking (for a reasonable fee) for those with cars. The rooms are a bit small, but very clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Another plus was that breakfast was available until 10:30 am (for those late sleepers). If you are able to get a room on one of the upper floors facing Manhattan, the view is spectacular!

    Stayed for 4 nights and had a great experience. Located close to transit and close to Manhattan. On-site secure parking was a big plus for us. Hotel staff was very nice and quick to respond when we needed a new hair dryer or a new remote. Rooms are very clean but somewhat on the small side. Not a problem for two people since we were out most of a day but may be a squeeze for families. Special thank you to David at the Front Desk who helped us with parking and other info. We would stay here again in a New York minute!!

    Very close to the subway 'R'. It is quiet location, which totally different from Manhattan. There is grocery stores and supermarkets near the hotel. Surrounded by Subway, Donut, BR31, and KFC. Room and public space is quite old, but clean. Restroom has just be renovated, so it is new. Breakfast is expectable, but there are bit enough seats for guests. Staffs are friendly. From hotel to airport, better take taxi. Hotel can provide taxi service with fee. Travel with big luggage by subway is not easy cause so many stations don't have elevator.

    This Brooklyn hotel is conveniently located just steps away from the R subway train, and a short walk to the historic Green-Wood Cemetery. I thoroughly enjoyed walking in the area, and scouting out the numerous nearby restaurants. Though my room was small, it was very clean and comfortable. The included wi-fi and hot & cold breakfast were much appreciated. My ninth floor view of the Manhattan skyline was magnificent.

    « Great location in Brooklyn and easy to get to New York City »

    We chose to stay in Brooklyn so that we could experience the city life and differences to New York City. It only took us 10 minutes on the underground rail to get to the hear of NY. The hotel was clean, had a good breakfast and great staff who were happy to help with transport arrangements and other information. We took a ferry back to Brooklyn and walked to the hotel which was a great experience and we saw a lot more of the local life and culture. You need at least 45 minutes to do that though.

    « Caring Staff and Proximity to Subway »

    I want to acknowledge the really caring staff this hotel has. I am eternally grateful to the woman (too bad I did not get her name) to the woman in the breakfast room who came up to me when I was coughing choking on a piece of fruit, she was so genuinely caring and concerned, and that's amazing. Check-in was pretty quick. They emphasized several times that I was parking at my own risk in the adjacent parking area overnight ($24.83 per day, including tax), so much so that I had to ask about statistics. It turned out to be just fine. My room on the eighth floor looked out over a very unremarkable view of Brooklyn. The room itself was smaller than expected, and felt squeezed in and crowded by furniture. Oddly, it did not have a luggage rack. The room and bathroom were clean. The bed sheets looked tired and worn. The bed was on the harder side, but fine. However, the pillows were absurd - tiny, square, and hard. I have no idea in which universe these are acceptable pillows. The Wi-Fi worked very well in the room. The greatest part about this hotel's location is its proximity to subway, which can easily whisk you to Manhattan. But then bear in mind that this easily takes 40-45 minutes each way. So, if you are visiting New York to be in Manhattan, that's easily 1.5 hours lost out of your day, that's time that you could have spent walking and exploring Manhattan. Also, remember that if you take the R train to Manhattan from across the street, if coming back at a late hour, you will have to take the N train back to the hotel. The neighborhood that the hotel is in felt safe, but it is very unremarkable, it is not one of the charming brownstone sections of Brooklyn. There is a funeral home right across from the hotel, and a cemetery a block away. It's quite a hall to walk to an area of restaurants, and there were no remarkable restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. There is a supermarket next door, and a Dunkin Donuts across the street. Overall, the neighborhood appeared to be a mix of Latino and Muslim establishments. The breakfast has some choices, but it's pretty limited, the most basic of basic West Western fare. The seating is very limited, there were only 4-5 small tables. This was a last-minute booking for me, and worked out fine for its purpose. But, given the choice, this would not be be my top option for visiting New York.

    « Wonderful experience, great place to stay.. »

    Check in and arrival very smooth. Our room was clean and kept clean for our 5 day stay. Easy commute to Coney Island, 9/11 memorial etc. Subway and grocery store only steps from front door. Great local restaurants close to hotel. We took full advantage of the breakfast served each morning, which included hot eggs, bacon, sausage along with all the other carbs. We drove to hotel and found ample parking on site. The cost of which was about $25. a day, which we felt was worth the convenience. We found it safe to walk about the neighborhood, even at night, only good experiences. We bought ice cream at the Baskin Robbins/ Dunkin Donuts at 10pm which is located just across the street. Only take away was that the room was small. All other experiences were very positive and would recommend it highly. We enjoyed our stay there, the staff was awesome and would stay again.

    « OK Stay in a Pinch »

    After reading reviews of this hotel in Brooklyn I wasn't sure what to expect but I was traveling with my 2 Daughters for a concert in NYC and needed something just for overnight. It was within our price range ( $200-250- Daughter was paying for the room) and near where were going to be. Overall the room was OK. Very small interior but 2 good size double beds just for the 3 of us and comfortable but the sheets were scratchy and thin. The small square pillows were there as described by other reviewers. I have no idea why they do that. We brought our own assuming this would be the case and glad we did. Small bathroom but decent and clean Air conditioning worked fine and was soft and gentle sounding. It was also a quiet room up on the 4th floor. With the air on we couldn't hear hardly any traffic on the streets except once where we heard a car horn. The hotel itself was very quiet too which is always a concern. The subway is literally just across the street for two different lines as well. I parked by the side of the building which seemed OK but I was a little worried there wasn't more of a protected area ( and bigger) since I have a high end vehicle but my car was fine in the morning. They charge extra to park there. I never felt unsafe but I've been in NYC and Brooklyn before. The breakfast was as described by some others, a very tiny room that cannot accommodate many people and it was a zoo so we skipped breakfast and went elsewhere. I will say the staff we had weren't all that friendly but not overly rude either. They just seemed bothered by us even being there checking in. I can deal with that by ignoring it for one night. This is definitely not a 5 star place. I've been in many fancier hotels but it served it's purpose.

    « Budget hotel but very nice »

    For NYC this hotel in Brooklyn is very nice for the price. We got the queen room which was clean but tiny. No place to sit but the bed. The subway is right out front which we used along with cabs. Traffic is terrible so the subway is probably faster. The front desk staff was very helpful with directions and maps. The front desk with get you transport to the airport. They don't say so on their site but they will set up pick up at the airport . The breakfast bar had hot food but it does get crowded.

    « Staff was very kind and helpful »

    This is a very popular hotel for families who are traveling to see loved ones, and also for tour groups. Works just fine for business guests or others who are just passing through for a couple of days. The very best bonuses for this hotel is the parking on the property with underground overflow. Also there is a very decent grocery store next door that will have everything that you need for your stay. Good fast food choices in walking distance, and subway access right outside the door. Good location but not too busy or rundown like some of the other properties in the city. The staff were all very kind, gracious, and helpful. Rooms clean and no complaints. This is a good place to stay and recommend!

    We stayed here for 1 week in May (second time), the hotel is situated close to the subway for quick travel to Manhattan centre, very secure hotel and incredible staff that really do go the extra mile for you. We would recommend this hotel for anyone! The room was extremely clean, the area is nice and quiet and the air conditioning is a life saver in those hot summer months! Breakfast is tasty a wide selection of everything and all you can eat which my belly appreciates. We will keep coming back! Peter.

    « Convenient, clean, caring »

    All in all, a very pleasant stay. The hotel is located within a few hundred feet of the R train subway, direct 20 min. ride to Manhattan. If you are depending on the subway, just keep in mind that NYC does its track maintenance on weekends, so you might find train schedules are heavily modified, and some trains may not run at all on weekends. We found the R train schedule had changed on the inbound side so for one day (Sunday) we had to walk one stop on the Manhattan-bound side. But that was just for that one day otherwise very reliable and comprehensive service. I gave the hotel location 4 stars only because the neighborhood itself is a little down at the heel. Actually, quite typical for many Brooklyn neighborhoods. But we never felt unsafe and the subway is only steps from the hotel. Our room was spotless, a little on the cramped side but that did not matter since we basically only crashed there at night. The staff is super friendly and helpful. When I needed to amend my original reservation to include a refrigerator in the room it was cheerfully handled on the phone. Most importantly, because of a family emergency we had to cut short our stay. When I spoke to the staff to find out my options their first response was "How can we help?" and promptly modified our reservation to allow us to return home early. Much appreciated! Our room on the 9th floor had a nice view to the Verrazano Bridge in the distance. I don't know if rooms on the other side of the building might have a view to the Brooklyn Bridge, but it might be worth asking when making a reservation. Breakfast is a hearty buffet of eggs, bacon/sausage plus bagels and pastries and fresh fruit. Building is secure at night via card access, and the parking lot was sizable enough for parking our Tacoma (apparently there is and underground option which we didn't use). Parking was $22 per night. Just a note if you are driving... Because of our emergency we left the hotel for home around 4:45 a.m., and found the driving through greater New York City to be a lot more manageable than the nightmare we experienced when we arrived mid-afternoon two days before, when we were stuck in traffic for hours trying to get to the hotel. Leaving that early we found ourselves on 95 North in no time.

    The rooms here are small, but I understand that is normal for a New York City hotel. However, the staff was very efficient and helpful.

There is also on-site parking.This hotel was surprisingly good for a city hotel.

    « Bravo Zulu to Team Best Western Prospect Park »

    Several shipmates attending a 25th USCG Desert Storm Reunion stayed at the Best Western Prospect Park. Mr. Peter Reyes and his staff welcomed us with the highest hospitality imaginable. Our rooms were impeccably clean, the desk staff were warm and extremely helpful. When we called for directions from Penn Station, we were directed to use the subway. And, our stop was less than 100 feet from the front door. Mr. Reyes quoted us a very reasonable rate for the rooms. And, he went the extra mile by giving us a military discount. Additionally, he provided a room for one our members to give a VA presentation regarding veteran benefits. Several members of Mr. Reyes staff went well beyond what we would have reasonably expected. They are: Alex ( well done ), Caitlin ( thank you for getting us settled), Irene ( thank you for your PR skills), Judy ( thank you for coordinating our transportation) and Rachel (thank you for your beaming smile and calm presence when we contacted you by phone). All of this reflects Mr. Reyes' skill sets in maintaining a focused team effort. A spectacular service offered by Best Western Prospect Park is transportation proved by Explorer Car Service VIP. It was far more reasonable than cab service. And, under the watchful eye of Mr. Izzy Garlarza, we were sure to be at out appointed destinations ON TIME. Again, Bravo Zulu to all who made our reunion stay in NYC/Brooklyn a very memorable time.

    « Just right- well designed and reasonable »

    We have stayed at the Best Western Plus on several occasions for visiting family in the area. There are a lot of pluses for this hotel: it is well designed- the rooms are quiet and noise from other rooms is not heard- this is an important plus for light sleepers. Many hotels I have stayed in have thin walls and I can hear the TV or conversation from other rooms. Even the outside noise is muffled well. The rooms are upgraded with up-to-date plumbing. The toilet is a TOTO- and water efficient. The shower pressure is quite good, and the shower is easy to use. There is a workable fan. The bathrooms are a good size. The downstairs restrooms also have water free toilets- environmentally a plus. One caveat: there was no bathmat in the tub. I slipped in the tub taking a shower. This never happens to me- fortunately I'm in good shape. Visitors with mobility or joint issues should request a bat mat for the tub. There are bars on the side and in the front of the tub but it didn't help. Management please note: this is a necessity for every room. The lighting in the rooms is very good although not very bright. The black out shades actually work. Unusual in most hotels. The heating and AC work well from a thermostat. The night light in the bathroom works well so even though the room is dark, no need for a flashlight if one needs to get up at night. One doesn't have to turn on the bathroom light at night. The beds are a little on the firm side- and may be new. I slept well, better than in most hotels where the bedding is not always comfortable. There is a parking lot. Sometimes it is full so the staff will work out alternative parking. A real plus: visitors can check out and leave their luggage and pick it up at the end of the day. Quite convenient. The breakfast is good. Good enough so one doesn't have to go out wasting time looking for a place to eat breakfast. The coffee was quite good. Otherwise, standard hotel breakfast fare. The downstairs health club is clean and has a Sauna which I didn't use. The staff is great. Very accommodating and friendly. In general a reasonable well-built hotel. It's not in an interesting area, so one either drives or takes the subway to their destination.

    « First time to NYC and Staying in Brooklyn »

    This was my first time to New York, so had no idea where to really stay... This hotel was nicely located in Brooklyn with 25th Street subway just outside so easy access into Downtown brooklyn, Coney Island, and Manhattan. Staff friendly and accomodating. One thing I was not aware of was space - room was 'small' did have 2 queens size beds, but felt a wee closed in; this however is the norm for NYC. We had been at another (La Qunita on 3rd Ave and 13 th street) which was a shoe box - very tiny. Best Western was a tad bigger. BEWARE of Jupiter car service across the road. They offered $US38 to the airport, however the driver stopped before JFK on the freeway and demanded payment, then his card scanner didn't work (!!!?) so insisted on cash - I had none so he tried to drive me to a bank rather than the airport. I had some Australian dollars to get me out of the situation but had to give him $US 65.

    « Very pleasant experience »

    Stayed just one night, but the hotel was clean, well situated, and staff was very pleasant and helpful. The only problem I had was the security was not what it should be. You walk into a small area with open stairway going down to reception desk, and one elevator that takes you to the same downstairs area. However, this elevator can also take you up to the hotel rooms. No card slot, just free access. Once you get down to the reception area, this elevator is no longer accessible and there is a second internal building only elevator. At first, I assumed that the first elevator could not access the upper floors, but on further inspection it seems it can and does. Something it seems the hotel could and should correct.

    « Great value, efficient service and more! »

    The room at the hotel was a little small for my liking but was more than made up by its decent views, and well appointed furniture and comfortable shower area. But I also want to bring to attention some very efficient staff who made my check-in/check-out process seamless. What was noteworthy however was the manner in which the hotel staff corrected an honest mistake. A wrong bag was handed to me from the storage area when I came to collect my bag a few hours after my check-out. The uncanny similarity it bore to my bag foxed me too and I did not realize until I was about check-in at the airline counter. And I was certain that the shuttle service I had used had mixed up by bags when I was getting off. I had my bag deposited at the airline terminal's lost and found. In the meanwhile I headed to my my next destination - Seattle. While on the flight, I jogged through the entire sequence of events in my mind, it occurred to me that the miss might have happened at the hotel itself. I called the hotel as soon as I landed and was informed that there had indeed been a mixup. The hotel not only owned up the error graciously but also promised to ship the luggage to me before my final departure back to India. And they delivered on their promise. While it was a difficult few days until the bag reached me, I am most grateful to the staff and the management who ensured that the correct bag reached me. Three cheers to the service levels at this hotel!

From the hotel we walked to and along 5th Avenue into the heart of Park Slope. It was fun to walk by all the funky coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants on both sides of the street, as well as to see the Statue of Liberty in the distance. The subway stop is at the corner of 4th Avenue, a few steps from the hotel,, so it was easy to take the subway to Manhattan. Breakfast is included and we enjoyed the waffles, yogurt, cereals and other items that were provided.

It is a compact little hotel only a few steps from the subway line -- Barclays Center is only 4 stops north, and Coney Island area only about 8 stops south. You can also easily get into Manhattan. Room was standard "NYC compact size" but clean and very comfortable. Decent internet. Service was very friendly. Parking available (for a reasonable fee). Only thing that would improve it is some restaurants in the immediate area (but there is a grocery store and Dunkin Donuts on the nearby corner). We will not hesitate to use this hotel again when coming to Brooklyn,

    « Nice place for the price »

    Overall I had a satisfactory experience. Two issues though: 1. The lobby entrance, right after you enter the hotel from the street, was filled with plastic bags, fast food boxes and other trash, and dust. When I informed the front desk about this problem, they said "we can't do much, its windy, and when visitors open the door, it all flies in from the street." I do understand that, but at least some effort should be put to clean up that place. 2. There is not much place for the breakfast. 3-5 tables, I believe, and when the whole hotel comes down to have breakfast most of them eats in the lobby and in other places they can find. It might be useful to find some solution to this.

    « Fantastic for our trip »

    The 5 dots here have to be taken in context. For the cost, location, staff and amenities this hotel deserves the rating. It is a fantastic option for a trip to NYC without paying Manhattan prices. There is a subway station (25th/4th Av) 50 steps away from the front door (cross the street for the R train to Manhattan - about 20 mins journey). I gladly sat on the train for 20 mins in order to save about $40/night over Manhattan prices for similar properties. We also walked home from the 36th St subway station (The R Train was delayed so we took the N) at about 10pm one night and got home safely without indecent (but like in any big city keep your wits about you). Staff were friendly and answered any questions we had, and kept our luggage on our last day so we could visit Coney Island before our flight in the evening. Breakfast choices were eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, waffles, various pastries, fruit, yogurt, bagels, tea and coffee. The room was small but functional (it is New York after all) but it was clean and the bed was comfy. WiFi was as fast as I've experienced at a hotel and the bathroom was nice with complimentary toiletries and good hot water pressure. Can't comment on the sauna or gym as we didn't use it. There is a supermarket next to the hotel, a laundromat 2 properties down the street and a deli or Dunkin Donuts across the street. The room was lacking a safe which was the biggest disappointment and you may struggle for space if you have larger suitcases - we had smaller ones and they had to live on the window sill. If we were ever in NYC again we'd certainly stay here and I'd recommend it if anyone asked me where to stay in/near the city.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    We picked this hotel because we knew it would be less expensive than staying in Manhattan, and didn't mind the subway commute. We were pleased from start to (almost) finish. We arrived early and were able to get our room before 11 a.m., which was great. The furnishings were new and everything was clean. The reception personnel were very polite and helpful. The subway stop was literally steps outside the door. The neighborhood felt safe, however coming back late at night, I was surprised how empty the street was, and was glad the subway stop was so close. The breakfast was adequate although crowded and there was not always a table to eat at. My only complaint was that when we asked for the desk personnel to call a cab for us to return to the airport, we got a car service, rather than a taxi. At that point we did not have time to wait for another cab, and the car service cost $55 to La Guardia, compared to the $40 we paid for the same trip from the airport by cab. Otherwise, if you don't mind a 30 minute subway ride, it was well worth the money we saved over a more expensive hotel. Be sure to walk to the Green-Wood Cemetery only a few blocks away, and climb the hills for an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline.

    This hotel attracts tourists and others visiting Brooklyn and Manhattan. It's a block from the subway (but be careful which side of the street you enter the subway -- if you go down the wrong stairs, you'll head away from Manhattan instead of toward Manhattan). Expedia helped us get a great price. You walk in, take steps or elevator down a floor to the front desk. Near that are 2 breakfast rooms. No fresh fruit, but eggs, bacon, sausage, breads, pastries, make your own waffles, coffee, water, juice. Room was fine -- hotel was quiet. Staff was nice. There is a pay hotel lot, but we had little trouble parking around the corner. Some may think the neighborhood doesn't feel safe, but it really is just fine. It's a working class neighborhood, but you can walk a few blocks and find nice, affordable restaurants. This will be our go-to place whenever we're in Brooklyn.

The single bed rooms are small and do not have a fridge, so if this is important, get the 2 bed room.

    « Expensive but no complaints »

    Location on 4th Ave is fine. This is not Manhattan, but plenty of cool spots within walking distance of this hotel. Compared with the options we could find in this part of Brooklyn, the hotel was fine. Plenty of parking (at extra cost of $25). Nice clean, fresh smelling, large enough room (2 double beds) with nice view of the City (8th floor). Staff pleasant and capable. Included good basic breakfast provided scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurts, cereals, juices, fruits, breads and plenty of typical spreads and toppings. Bathroom sink didn't drain properly. We spent only one night, so didn't ask them to fix it. At departure, it was clear they would jump on it. This is no Marriott. Walls kind of thin, but we weren't bothered by occasional sound in the hall. Next visit to Windsor Terrace/Sunset Park area, we will probably look for something less expensive, but to be sure of a pleasant experience, we would recommend this hotel.

    Stayed here several times. Great value for NYC accommodations. Steps from subway, relatively short trip to Manhattan, limited breakfast seating so pot luck in getting table, $25/day parking fee a little much for location so add that to quoted room charge. 45 minute walk to Barclays. Overall very good hotel, but rooms are small & tight. Not luxurious, but comfortable.

    « Clean, nice room, near the subway »

    We stayed at this hotel for one weekend. It's not right along the park, but it's reasonably priced and the room was fine. The room was clean and had a mini-fridge and wifi. We had a king or a queen. The bed was comfortable, but what's the deal with all the mini-pillows in hotels lately? There was noise from the hall that could easily be heard in the room. The lobby was pleasant. I'm not usually fussy about hotel free breakfasts, but this was really pretty bad - the eggs were awful, and the choices were pretty limited, though you could get cereal and waffles (but my husband says skip that berry stuff for the waffles). There is a grocery store nearby. Parking in the hotel lot was $22 a night but the side street was free. The hotel is near the subway, but make sure you use the right entrance to the subway to head in the direction you want. Green-Wood cemetery is a block away. Worth the walk to see both the historic cemetery and its famous green parrots.

    « Good location with friendly staff »

    We stayed here for a week. We got a room with a nice view but because we had a small child with us, we needed a crib. But there was no space for the crib in that room. The staff arranged right away bigger room at the basement. It was a very big room only the view was bad. But you cannot have all. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The general manager which was his office next to breakfast room couldn't even say goodmorning! The breakfast rooms are a little small but the breakfast was great! Very close to the MTR and in 20 minutes in Manhattan. We would go there again!

    Nice clean space for an NYC hotel. The staff is friendly and having two elevators is a major plus for rush hour times. I travel 300 days a year and stayed here about 100 of them last year. Great location as well. Less than a 2 minute walk to the R train which will connect with all the other trains needed.

    « Alternative to Manhattan prices »

    This hotel is located in the Green Wood section of Brooklyn. It is a good alternative to paying Manhattan hotel prices. Hot breakfast and off street parking were included in the reasonable hotel rate. Disadvantage is the distance to mid town Manhattan. It is about a 40 minute subway ride. However, the train stop is on the corner so it is very convenient. Other disadvantages were the very small room and the walk to a good restaurant. There were plenty of quick eat places near the hotel but for a pleasant sit down dinner, you have a 10 to 15 minute walk.

    « Great for the price »

    Having stayed in NYC and Brooklyn quite a bit, we were still looking for our limited budget "go to" hotel. I think we found it. First, the room was very small, but it had a wardrobe and drawers which fit all of our stuff. We really only used it to sleep, so it was fine. I called 2 weeks before and requested a room with a view, and was told it was not guaranteed but they would try when we checked in. We were early, and were greeted by a delightful young lady who assured me a room with a view was booked for me, but it wasn't ready. We were told we could certainly leave our car in the paid lot ($22), and we could check back in later which was what I expected. Since there are in and out privileges, we drove to a couple of spots in Brooklyn we wanted to hit, and when we got back to the hotel at 1:30, our room was ready! We checked out the room on the tenth floor, admired the Manhattan view, and took the subway right across the street into Manhattan. The people there were all very polite, friendly, and efficient. The room was clean and the tv remote was even in a sanitized bag! The view at night was great, there were no annoying sounds to speak of, and the bed was comfy. Also, the elevators were quick- even from the 10th floor. Breakfast was bacon, sausage, eggs, cereal, juice. coffee, yogurt, pastries and make your own waffle with whipped cream and strawberry sauce. Perfectly fine and very well attended to so that nothing ran out. We did not use them, but there is a small workout room on the bottom floor with a full locker room, and dry and wet sauna. In summary, the low price, the cleanliness, friendly staff, breakfast, and the subway so close, made this an almost perfect stay. If only the parking were free but you can't have everything. It is still a great value.

    Just what you'd expect. Small room, not much to offer. Poor heating system, not enough power outlets. Seemed clean and had a bread-based breakfast if you can eat gluten. Staff was friendly. Location next to the subway was the best perk.

    « Be careful »

    Be careful with your credit cards if you stay here. During my actual stay, I had a major issue. Besides general rudeness from the man checking me in, he twice forgot to give me my credit card back. The first time when I was checking in, I noticed, waited for him to give me my card back and finally had to ask him for it. He barely apologized as he gave it back. Due to having two reservations, I had to check out and check back in, and when I checked back in, he did the same exact thing. This time, I did not notice. I received a phone call an hour later, asking me to come pick up my credit card. One time is an accident, twice is a problem. It could be an honest mistake, but I'm not willing to take that chance. I have had to call my bank, cancel that card and request a new one. Overall, the hotel was nice. It was in a good location and the rooms were an adequate size for New York City area hotels. However, due to the extremely poor service, I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Sadly I had not had time to review this wonderful hotel sooner however my memories of my pleasant stay have not yet faded! I visited this hotel for my second time since 2011 this August 2015. All staff were welcoming and friendly and the hotel was very clean. The room was great and the hotel had managed to fulfill my room request which was really good. This was the first time my girl friend had visited the US and I wanted her to have a good view of the city. The hotel did not disappoint, and I was very grateful for their efforts as I am sure that August can be a busy period for them. This hotel is in a great location if you want to easily get in and out of the city. A 7 day Subway pass is all you need. Unfortunately, I did not get the names of any of the approachable and helpful staff there. There was a heatwave when we stayed here, however the AC worked very well, and when we came back, the room was just perfect in terms of temperature. House keeping staff would come round quite early. If you wanted them to come back later, simply put the provided sign on your door. They were very accommodating. My only complaint was that the WiFi speeds were very slow, but seeing as we were not there that much, it didn't make much difference for us. On our last day, we asked if it might be possible that the hotel could print our boarding passes as we didn't seem to have our return ones. They couldn't have been more helpful. Can't wait to stay again, hopefully very soon!

    We left the Wyndham (terrible place) and arrived at the Best Western. The manager happened to be there behind the desk when we were checking in. My wife told him the story of how we "HATED" the Wyndham (just around the corner) and had wanted to at the Best Western but the days we wanted were double the Wyndham prices. She also told about the lack of parking at the Wyndham and how we got two tickets (two cars) for $45.00 each. He immediately said we can make you/stay better. He had us cancel the other days at the Wyndham, he booked us for that days at his hotel for way less then his normal pricing and less than the Wyndham. Then he gave us free parking for each car for 3 days @ normal price of $25/day - total gift of $150 bucks to help cover our fines..I cannot say how courteous he and everyone else was. What great stay!! thank you Mr. Manager..The Morgans

    We visited NYC the weekend before Christmas. We chose this hotel because we had friends in Brooklyn and the rates were affordable. We usually do not stay at Best Westerns, but were thoroughly impressed by the hotel. Breakfast and WIFI were included, the rooms were clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is on the same corner as a subway station, so we did not have to move our car during the entire trip. We found free street parking a few streets away from the hotel, but the hotel also has a private lot for parking. We felt safe in the area and there is nothing I would change about the trip. We will definitely stay at this hotel when we return to NYC.

The subway station for Manhattan is only 40 yards from the hotel, i recommend buying the 7 day pass. The free breakfast is of a very good standard although it can get a bit busy. The rooms are modern and well equipped and cleaned every day in all thjis is an ideal hotel for a New York visit.

    I am a local but needed a place to stay nearby for a family function. The hotel was okay but nothing special. I had a king sized room. It was a fairly small room with a nice bathroom. Room was clean. The pillows on the bed are very tiny. I called down and asked for 3 more so that it would be a normal sleeping experience - but they use throw pillows as their pillows. The breakfast was good. They would not give me a late checkout but otherwise staff was friendly and helpful. I thought the price makes sense for NY but considering it's a good hour out from midtown Manhattan and comparable to Manhattan hotel prices, I am not quite sure why tourists stay here. Only reason I did was for the location near my family function. Brooklyn is starting to become a bigger attraction, but the hotel is border of Gowanus and Sunset Park - it's not really a happening area. But when Brooklyn does become more of an attraction, this hotel will need a serious facelift. Overall, the hotel is OK.

    « No frills hotel with basic amenities, pleasant staff and affordable rates »

    Rooms are small but well-designed with a small desk, a reasonable number of electrical outlets, good closet and drawer space, acceptable lighting, bedside tables on both sides of the bed, comfortable bed (not plush, but okay). Some rooms have refrigerators; if you need one, be sure to ask in advance. Bathrooms are small but functional, with moderate vanity space and good shower. Cleanliness is acceptable ? not spotless, but okay. Breakfast (hot and cold items ? the usual fare) is served 6:30 to 10:30 am every morning, longer hours than many similar hotels, and the two small breakfast rooms were never over-crowded. Elevators are efficient. Parking is available in an open lot, adjacent to the hotel, for an extra fee. There seem to be ample spaces at all times. The neighborhood, which runs along 4th Avenue, at first glance seems rather grim and gritty; it's a mix of small industrial buildings, discount stores, funeral parlors, check cashing stores, and inelegant residential properties, with a number of inexpensive casual ethnic restaurants (not as many good choices here as on 5th avenue 10 or 20 blocks south, going toward downtown). However, we felt safe at all times and had no trouble walking day and night throughout the area. The Green-Wood cemetery is one block away and makes for a fascinating and spectacular walk during daylight hours. Despite the hotel's name, it is not really in the Prospect Park area; the hotel is a 30-minute walk from the famous greenspace. One excellent feature: the R Subway Line, which takes you into Manhattan, is a few steps from the hotel's front door. And, there is a very good grocery store right next door with a generous deli counter, fresh fruit, and other basic provisions. In summary: if you want to be in one of the trendy sections of Brooklyn, with tree-lined streets, cute restaurants, attractive late-night bars, and interesting shops, the Best Western Prospect Park is probably not the place for you. However, you can probably save money by staying at the BW Prospect Park, you'll be safe and comfortable, and you can hop on the subway and be in lower Manhattan in 20 minutes. You can also drive to other parts of Brooklyn with relative ease. Ask for a room with views of Manhattan - a real plus.

Good water pressure in the shower, comfortable bed. There is no restaurant on site but there is a pizza place that will provide room service. We didn't use it though. The hotel itself was very quiet and we were lucky enough to get a view of Manhattan from the 8th floor. The WiFi generally worked well. There is an express subway that runs to Manhattan which is about a 20 min. ride. You can catch that train one stop away at 36th St. Otherwise it takes about 45min. We found that restaurants in the area close early, around 10pm so if you're used to Times Square hours this will definitely be a change.

    The hotel was very nice, right across the street there is a train station that you can use to get everywhere. The staff was very nice, parking was convenient for me (extra $23 but worth it) the room was clean, the bed was confortable. No issues with the TV or the AA, nice view from my room. Easy and fast check in (3pm) easy and fast check out... I did not had the continental breakfast for lack of time but it look good. Overall a great experience.

    « Two night stay...Clean, Safe, convenient, and affordable. »

    My husband and I were in Brooklyn for our daughter's wedding and needed a place for not only us, but our extended family and friends to stay that was near Prospect Park Boat House. The hotel was a perfect location for all. We had a shuttle bus and limo's to get the family and guest to and from the hotel. During the day of the wedding, guest walked along the Avenue - stopped for lunch - picked up coffee at Dunkin Donuts across the street, others picked up a Subway Sandwich.

    « Great hotel for the weekend away from the city. »

    I've stayed in a few hotels in the past couple of months and this hotel surprised me. Everything was great with the hotel clean rooms, breakfast was good (free) and the staff made us feel right at home. We came in for Halloween weekend and the staff were all dressed up in costumes handing out candy to local kids which was a first for me to see but I loved it. I've never seen a hotel so down to earth and "not all about business" which made me not mind the money i spent. If they keep this up I'll stay here for every Holiday to see what they come up next. Great job guys Caitlin (skull face), Alex (The Mad Hatter), The breakfast lady "nurse" and the doll from Saw.

    Nice, clean hotel very convenient to subway station. Beds were incredibly comfortable and the lobby was very inviting. Only issue was it takes forever for the rooms to be serviced. The location is great and the rooms are very clean and comfortable.

    « A room with a view! Small, clean, modern and excellent customer service »

    I have been avoiding Best Western because of past experiences. I was surprised to find that this hotel in Brooklyn surpassed my expectations and even brought a smile to my face! I had a wonderful view of the city from my room that I enjoyed all night. While my room was very small (queen bed only) it was remodeled and clean. The size of the room is what I expect when traveling in Europe - not the USA. But if you are ok with small, the location and price was right.

    « Pleasant stay- basic but practical »

    Helpful staff, tiny room but everything you could need for an economic stay in Brooklyn. Breakfast was a bonus and better choice than we expected. Location good for metro but mainly fast food outlets locally rather than better dining options. Supermarket next door which had a good selection of food and drinks.Despite the position of the hotel on 4th the room was quiet and we were not disturbed. Ask for a higher room if this is important. Wi Fi worked well.Altogether a clean and functional hotel.

    « Halloween/Marathon/Birthday in New York »

    Loved our stay in this hotel. The location is great-at the tip of Brooklyn overlooking Manhattan, near beautiful Prospect Park, Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights, and a short subway ride or drive across the Brooklyn Bridge. Ample on site parking. Fantastic staff who do all they can to make your stay comfortable and pleasurable. Breakfast buffet with hot food and delicious bakery pastries included. Homey atmosphere. Beds are super comfortable with quality cotton linens. Will come back every time we are in New York.

    « Breakfast could be better, but not a bad hotel. »

    The milk was old or sat out too long and the cream cheese is allowed to sit out and reach room temperature. It would be nice if they offered more fruit. Besides that it was a nice hotel for Brooklyn. The pillows are small; they should replace them with at least standard size pillows (just a thought).

    « Convenient location, good quality and price »

    I stayed her for a few days to attend a conference in Manhattan -- the location directly next to a subway station is excellent and the available (for pay) parking lot was useful for a day with a rental car. Rooms are clean, reasonably new and well taken care of -- overall a good experience and good price/value balance.

    My husband, sister,brother-in-law and I recently traveled across the country on a road trip. We left California on October 1st and visited a variety of places during out trip. We had the pleasure of spending 2 nights in the Best Western Plus Prospect Park Hotel in Brooklyn, NY. We were 2 weeks into our trip when we arrived in Brooklyn and had stayed in a number of hotels up to this time. From the moment we entered the hotel lobby at B.W. Prospect Park we were made to feel most welcome. Lucky for us Gia was "manning" the counter! She was so helpful in a variety of ways. She told us about the subway and mapped out a route for us to follow to visit the 9/11 Memorial. When we decided to take a taxi instead of the subway, she called a cab for us. When we inquired about a place for dinner she recommended a nearby Italian restaurant. The restaurant was so good we returned for the second night! My sister needed to print a boarding pass for their return home-Gia was right there to assist. The hotel itself was wonderful-small but immaculate! Every bit of space was functional. The amenities were wonderful and included free WiFi, continental breakfast ( delicious) and parking. My sister and brother-in-law flew home after 2 weeks, but my husband and I spent a total of 3 weeks away from home. We agree that the B.W. Prospect Plus was a highlight of our trip! Thanks again Gia for making us feel so welcome!

    « Convenient location, excellent staff »

    The Best Western Plus Prospect Park is very convenient by car or subway. The surface lot next to the hotel was never full during our stay, although there is a garage if it fills. The subway (Broadway local line) is right across the street (to Manhattan) and two doors away coming back. Breakfast is included, with better than average eggs, bacon, sausages, do-it-yourself waffles, fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee, and tea. The staff is very knowledgable, friendly, and courteous. The free internet is good. All-in-all, this is a good choice to stay in Brooklyn, with easy access to Lower Manhattan, Midtown, and Queens.

    Great hotel away from the bustle of Manhattan but only a short train ride away. Subway right next to hotel, convenience store next door. Nice middle eastern restaurant behind hotel. Great staff and free breakfast.

    « Pretty good for NYC »

    On the plus side : Brand new hotel and metro just in front of it On the minus side : nothing close around by walking. Comfortable room but you can hear the traffic the entire night if your room is on 4th av. or on the East or West side. Breakfast is "industrial minimum", but it is better than nothing. Should be 10 or 15 % cheaper (I paid $ 220 anight plus taxes) Again everything beeing new makes the difference.

    « Stayed one night »

    People were very friendly & helpful. Room was very clean. Pillows were the size of throw pillows on a sofa and you were not able to close the curtains which let the sun in but also made you feel like you didn't have any privacy if it was night time and you had a light on in the room.

    « Excellent value »

    We arrived much, much earlier than expected at the hotel and, of course, our room wasn't ready. The reception staff offered to put our luggage in a store room, so we retrieved a few bits and went off into Manhattan to pick up our tourist passes. On our return, we were "signed in" very quickly and efficiently and told where to find our room. We asked for a "quiet" room and were told we'd been allocated a room with a view - and what a view! It was also on the 8th floor, so hardly any road noise. There are many adverse comments on here about small room sizes - I've included a photo of the floor plan so you can gauge the sizes, we were in room 806. It wasn't big, admittedly, but - hey, news flash - you use a hotel as a place to sleep and get changed, you DO NOT need a large room. This is a quality hotel at budget prices. The bed was large and comfortable, the room and bathroom were scrupulously clean and the small bottles of shampoo, shower gel, conditioner and body lotion were replenished daily, as were the coffee sachets (but only two regular and one decaf!). Storage space was quite adequate for our clothes although one large suitcase had to go on top of the wardrobe, the other behind the room door. Breakfast consisted of American "bacon" (ie rashers hard fried and greasy - not really to British tastes but we accept that this is how our colonial cousins like it and when in Rome...), sausages and scrambled egg, a batter dispenser to make your own waffles, breads, pastries, cereals, yoghurt, fruit juice, tea and coffee but little in the way of fresh fruit (oranges for the first few days, then nothing until my wife asked for fruit, when apples were produced). Again, there are negative comments about the use of disposable plates and cutlery. I repeat - this is a quality hotel at budget prices, so get a life and stop complaining. My wife had a minor accident outside as we were waiting for a taxi, and the reception staff were quick off the mark to provide first aid. The location looks fine in Google Earth Streetview but is actually a bit run down. It's perfectly safe, though (there is a large police station just down the road). What appear to be restaurants down the road (to the right leaving the hotel) are actually take-aways with a couple of tables, and are little more that "greasy spoon" joints. The supermarket next door is a bit of a muddle. There is a Dunkin' Donuts across the road to the left, but we didn't explore the street further than that. The subway is feet away from the front door of the hotel, on the R line. The entrance by the hotel is for the Coney Island end of the line, to get to Manhattan you need to cross the road. However, using the R line to get into Manhattan takes about 40 minutes. It is much better to go south one stop and change to the N or D lines (depending on where you are aiming for) as these are express services and take around 20 minutes to get to the Times Square area. We were extremely pleased to have found this hotel, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot recommend it highly enough.

    « What a view! »

    Stayed for three nights at the end of September. Chose Brooklyn and this hotel as a cheaper alternative to Manhattan with the R subway being located directly outside the front door and it only being a short subway ride to a car rental location for our trip upstate. We arrived earlier than anticipated thanks to a great flight and an efficient taxi driver to be told that check in was at 3.00, nearly two hours away. We grabbed a coffee before deciding whether to leave luggage but before it was finished a smiling receptionist told us that the "quiet, upper floor room" we had requested was ready. Boy did we luck out. Room 1007 had a view of the Manhattan skyline to die for. Yes the room isn't large and yes it was warm (it was 81 the day we arrived) and yes the wind did whistle the following two nights after the weather changed for the worse but these are small moans. I would say though that the mattress is getting tired. It was clean with plenty of hanging space and suited our needs. Breakfast starts at 6.30 which was also a big plus as we were up very early because of jet lag. Fairly basic but quite filling. We didn't have a great deal of contact with the staff but they were all very pleasant and willing to help. There isn't much within a block or two of the hotel and area, whilst perfectly safe, certainly isn't swanky. We found some great restaurants on 5th Avenue, two or three subway stops away. If you are looking to save some money and don't mind a longer "commute" to the sights then we can thoroughly recommend this Best Western. And did I mention the view?!

    This hotel like many Best Westerns was great,if you happen to get a room with a view you can see the Island of Manhattan in its glory.Good facilities ie gym and sauna,and the housekeepers on the ball.Subway across the otherside of street and away you go...NYC is your oyster,Sean.

    « Great Location and Staff! »

    The location is so close to everything, subway, industry city, shops, restaurants and more. Great staff, very accommodating and helpful. Gave great ideas for dinner within walking distance. Small grocery store next door and great bakeries. Room was pretty small, but that's expected in NYC. Top floor room had windows that whistled when the wind blew, kind of annoying. Spectacular Views of NYC! Good breakfast in the morning, but great 7th Ave. Donut Shop Diner was recommended and it's a must! All in all a great value for the money in the pricey area.

    Clean, convenient, great breakfast. It's nice to have a room with a refrigerator in the City. That's not normal. Also, there was space to put my suitcase. Also not normal in a NYC hotel. You are steps away from a subway stop which puts you minutes from anywhere you'd want to go in Brooklyn or any other borough. Attentive management.

    « Very close to subway »

    We were in New York for a week and loved this location. It is steps from the subway, grocery store next door, and breakfast every morning! The staff were very helpful in explaining how to use the subway and made great recommendations for places to eat. The room was clean and we had a wonderful view from our room. We will stay at this hotel the next time we visit New York.

    Our 1st trip to New York and our stay at Best Western Brooklyn was perfect. We loved the location with subway close by, the room was clean and maintained daily, the breakfast was great with hot and cold choices, the staff were friendly and helpful, restaurants close by, grocery store next door, and the cost was affordable for our weeks' stay. Highly recommend this place!

    « Avoid management that only cares about the bottom line »

    I have stayed here in the past as I visit family here - I tend to patronize the same place. I booked here again to attend the funeral of my sister. The arrangements were changed and I had to rebook it to a few nights later. The original night was not cancelled correctly and the hotel charged me over $250 for the one night - refusing in any way to refund it even though I had another reservation for two nights a few days later. It was a very upsetting time for me and they were inflexible even though the charges were still "pending" and they could have easily reversed it and kept a loyal customer. I very rarely write bad reviews, but I feel like people should know what a horrible place this is - there are plenty of better places to stay in Brooklyn. Support businesses where the management supports the customers. They could have made it right - easily. They pretended to do me a big favor by not charging me another $250 and letting me cancel the current reservation - they have a 48 hr cancellation policy - which I was within 24 hrs., but had been waiting to hear back from *them* about the first charge. Just unnecessary rudeness to a loyal customer. Hotels can say they care, but when it comes down to it, they can do whatever they want. Note - when I talked to the national office, they were sure I would be refunded the money, but it is up to the local manager.

    « solid choice »

    If you're looking for good value and clean and comfortable rooms, it's hard to beat this hotel. There is a subway stop on the doorstep and we have Google Maps nowadays, so going to Manhattan is not an issue unless you like to come back to your hotel multiple times a day. The only downsides are the sometimes inconsistent housekeeping (once the toilet paper wasn't replaced even though we were clearly running low, another time we didn't get new shampoo) and the lack of a laundry machine. There is a laundromat 2-3 blocks away, but it's a hassle to carry your laundry to and fro while in your jammies, especially in the colder months I can imagine. Guest laundry should be basic for a mid-range hotel, especially a Best Western Plus.

    We stayed at this hotel from 8 sept till 11 sept 2015. Hotel location is very convenient with subway metro at doorstep . Can easily reach to all tourist attractions with R line metro. Hotel also provided limited outdoor parking located right next to it . There is convenient mart open from 7am to 9pm. Lots of eateries nearby . Upon checking out, we asked for a cab thru the reception . It cost us usd55 to Jfk airport in 50mins.
