    The room was beautiful & very clean. Looked like everything was updated. We checked in early & we got our key right away. Staff was friendly. I will definitely be staying here again when I'm in the area.

    My check in was speeding and quiet. I had a basement room, and to my surprise was just as beautiful as the rest. The room was very spacious, warm and the bed was oh so comfy. I wish I could have stayed longer. I had a wonderful quiet night.

    « Great place to stay in Brooklyn »

    The rooms were nicer than I had expected. Everything was very clean and updated. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was quiet. Kamran, the hotel manager, and his wife were very friendly and invested in our having an excellent experience at their hotel. Breakfast was very generous as well. I highly recommend this hotel.

    « Pretty good hotel, bad housekeeping »

    Relatively nice hotel, especially for that areas of Brooklyn. Everything is relatively new, seems to have enough parking spaces, even though I stayed there during the downtime (middle of January). Housekeeping service is horrible. We ordered it once on the second night of the three night's stay and it seems that the housekeeper did not even enter the bathroom: the empty shampoo container and hair remained in the shower, a dirty towel was left behind the door, and the coffee maker tray that I left for them to wash near the sink was just set aside (not even put back into the machine) unwashed. In general, would recommend staying there, just be prepared to tell the front desk to clean your room again

    « Decent hotel - convenient location »

    There are very few places to stay in the Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn. This hotel is quite good. Breakfast and Parking is included. It's just a 5 minute drive to the Brighton Beach area. I had family visiting and they were all happy with their stay.

    « Splendid Hotel! »

    I stayed at this hotel for a few nights at the beginning of December. Reema was particularly helpful during my stay along with Pablo who helped me with my luggage. My room was lovely! Truly the photos on here do not do the rooms justice! The accommodation has been practically and very tastefully. I was very content and even extended my stay by another day! I would definitely return to this hotel!

    We stayed for nine days over Christmas and from the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Our room was newly decorated with every modern convenience,spotless ,and with the most comfortable bed ever. Housekeeping staff could not do enough. Breakfast catered for every taste. Security perfect. Numerous restaurants right on your doorstep. Transport so convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel with the most professional and friendly manager and staff. Ann and Michael

    « Great location near Sheepshead Bay but upper-level parking is tight and weird »

    The location was wonderful, near Sheepshead Bay and some good seafood restaurants. The rooms were neat and clean; the breakfast buffet was nice. However, we had selected that particular hotel for the free on-site parking, yet it ended up costing us $450 because our rental SUV got dinged by somebody in the teardrop-shaped parking lot, which is difficult to get out of (you need to do something like an eight-point turn) once it gets near full (after sundown every day). Some nights there wasn't any room left after we came back from dinner and we had to look for parking spots on the local streets, which isn't ever easy in Brooklyn, due to all the various regulations and hours for different days.

    « Nice Hotel in Brooklyn »

    The front desk staff was really nice! They were able to check us in early which was great since we wanted to get into NYC quickly. The rooms were very clean and fairly good sized. Good location near the shoreline of Sheepshead Bay.

    « Stay Away: Noisy and Parking is not "Guaranteed" - »

    Arrived at 10 pm after a long day only to be told that the free parking was not 'guaranteed' and we would have to find street parking in a timed area. Drove around for 30 minutes before finding something about 4 blocks away - had to lug our luggage into the hotel. We were placed in a basement room which was 2 doors away from the breakfast area, where there was a HUGE party going on until 2 in the morning. People were going in and out of the door to the garage which SLAMMED every time it opened. I tried calling the front desk to complain and they said they would "see" what time the party was scheduled to go until, and I never heard back. Tried complaining upon check out but the front desk attendant said she could not help and would let her manager know. I've now called 3 times to speak to a manager but have yet to reach one! Room and breakfast were fine - nothing special but comfortable enough. We would never return though.

    « An Excellent Hotel in Brooklyn, New York »

    For the record, I am a Best Western Rewards Diamond member and as such, I'm entitled to certain amenities. I have stayed in probably 35 ? 40 Best Western hotels, for hundreds and hundreds of nights, across the United States; as well as other hotels especially during my work career. I mention this only to show that I have a certain amount of experience. I love getting good reviews and I hate giving bad reviews. This is a good review: This was my second stay at this hotel and it is becoming a favorite especially because of the staff, location, and quality offered. It is located in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn which is filled with many different restaurants and has become a rather trendy area. It is only a few minutes to either the Belt Parkway, if you are driving, as well as public transportation. It is perhaps 20 - 30 minutes from JFK airport. The rooms are large, clean, and very nicely decorated. I did not have the breakfast so I cannot comment on that. The one drawback about this hotel is the parking. Parking is free but limited and because it is in a high use area, street parking is also difficult. However, I fully recommend this hotel both for couples, family, friends, and for those who are traveling solo.

    « Not Bad! »

    In comparence with Europe its rather expensive. But for States its Ok. The Breakfast was good enough and rooms are clean. But because of the location in rooms are very nosy. The road behind my window was busy and the windows are too weak to pretend this noice... so I was hard to sleep. And its a litle bit far from metro. ( 15 minutes by walk) Anyway, for the business trip its ok for 3-5 days to stay.

    Very good location for inner city travelers that do not want to go to Manhattan to stay for a couple of evenings. Not far from Kennedy airport and Coney Island. Buses and a Subway nearby. Close to many restaurants .

    « Great place to stay »

    This hotel was great value for the cost paid. The hotel was located a short walk (15 min) walk to a subway station. It looked great from the outside and our room was very comfortable and roomy. They also had a very nice breakfast with hot items as well as the usual cereal and toast options. We really enjoyed our stay.

    « Average Place »

    Came in recently for a trip. The room was decent (luckily I didn't get a basement room), there were some upgrades that were done, but you can tell they still need some work. In my case, the bathroom needs a new paint job, the door and wall paint is peeling and chipped. Shower water pressure is fairly weak and water isn't hot enough. If you are visiting during cooler seasons, the hotel is pretty cold in the common areas including the lobby. Be aware, there is a lot of road nice that you hear. Breakfast is also included which is nice, but nothing special - your typical free breakfast staple items.

    « Good for an overnight stay »

    Rooms are small but decor is very nice, walk in shower also. Breakfast food, eggs, bacon, sausage, a no for me. Eggs cold bacon and sausage tasteless. Dining area nice with a booth. Front desk was a little slow with checkout and there was only one couple in front of us. Pleasant though. My biggest complaint security for that back exit door especially when people are sleeping right in front of it. Also door leading to parking lot was cracked and taped up. Until these security issues are addressed, I would not go back or recommend the hotel to anyone.

    « Being afraid at the Best western on Emmons st. Bklyn N.Y »

    Hotel was clean, Breakfast was better then most. The noice level from street traffic really bad. Need double paned windows. Also on the 4th of November at 2or3am 3 or 4 young men were on the corner , yelling at cars, kicking bus sign , climbing the bus sign . I was very afraid . They could have come into hotel lobby at any time. Hotel has no security. Nor did hotel staff call police . Also glass door to parking lot cracked and just taped together. Why not repaired,

    « Great Location, Average Hotel »

    This Hotel could use some updating. Room and bathroom size were ok. Chair was missing from the room, never replaced even when commented to front desk. No place to sit but on the bed. Parking is definitely at your own risk! Two extremely small lots. One with worn plywood over a huge drop off, the only way in or out of the upper lot. The lower lot was almost impossible to get out of because it is so small. The breakfast was always late in setting up, no variety, everything is microwaved while you wait to eat. The staff at breakfast was nice and tried to be helpful. Front desk staff seems unknowledgeable, not very helpful. The location is good for restaurants, public transportation and Coney Island. Don't think we would return to this Hotel.

    « Comfortable and Convenient »

    This was our second stay at this hotel. We have been impressed during both visits by the cleanliness of the premises.It seems there are people cleaning 24/7! I passed the breakfast room on my way to the ice machine at 4:30 PM and saw a young woman washing the WALLS! There was a parking glitch the afternoon we arrived due to repairs on the upper level parking ramp, but staff was very kind to accommodate us in the VERY LIMITED basement level parking area. A very safe place to stay. Plenty of convenient dining options within walking distance. We will return whenever we visit family members in Brooklyn.

    « HUNG UP OM »

    as you can see by my reviews below, I LOVED THIS HOTEL. Tried to call hotel to make a reservation for several members of my family for a Brooklyn family reunion. MANAGEMENT: I called at 8:53 tonite, 9/27 to try and make a reservation for several rooms and whoever answered phone hung up on me, your biggest fan! i called several times immediately after and no answer. then i tried again and asked him what his problem was. He YELLED at me and hung up on me again. I guess me and my family will find another hotel in Brooklyn to gather....like that will be a problem. what a jerk. what happened to the wonderful people at the front desk who used to answer my calls and book at room at was once a wonderful place to stay in Brooklyn. Will never all again. will never go to this hotel again. Bully's answering the phone is a real bad idea.

    « Great choice. »

    Accomodations were very good. Sleeping was extremely comfortable. When we first stopped by to make a late reservation just 5 days prior, we were offered some great discounts we were not expecting. If we needed directions in finding a particular store, the staff was very knowledgeable.

    « Reasonably Good Experience at Brooklyn BW »

    Stayed at Brooklyn BW due to business since it was near a customer. Now that this property has been updated to a BW Plus, it's much better than before and the modern rooms offer all you need for a short stay. Bathroom is modern and efficient, high-speed internet and cable television work well and there are various dining options within walking distance.

    « Really understands the needs of the customer »

    It amazes me that expensive hotel chains STILL do not pay attention to what the customer, esp a business traveler, needs. THIS hotel does = 1 - enough plugs/connections for phones and laptop 2 - shower, not a tub (who takes a bath in a hotel? Ick) 3 - toilet that was high enough to be comfortable 4 - TV ON WALL!!! This is my benchmark - why don't ALL hotels do this!?? 5 - AC was easy to regulate and not loud 6 - breakfast sausage patties were delicious (not a big deal, but still nice!) And the desk personnel were very pleasant and helpful. I will definitely return.

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    For the location and the price, I think this was a clean, comfortable hotel. We were visiting Coney Island for a concert and the amusement park and one has to take an Uber or taxi to get to Coney Island but it is close. It looks like the hotel was renovated recently and the staff was helpful and the breakfast wasn't bad considering it came along with the room. It was nice that it had free parking though the parking lot is somewhat awkward. I would generally recommend this hotel.

    « Beach Vacation in Brooklyn »

    This is our 3rd stay at the Best Western Sheepshead Bay. It is a great location, close to many beautiful beaches and great restaurants. The area is very easy to get around cabs, subway and UBER are very easily accessed. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, easy to get in and out of, traffic wise. Looking forward already to our beach trip next summer.

    « Horible hotel with rooms in the basement! »

    I booked a room cost $175 plus tax with city view. When we arrived to the hotel we got the room in the basement close to huge laundry room. The 'city view' was half under the ground and half at boots of people walking on the street. When I asked to change the room I was told this is the only available room, it was midweek and empty parking. Hotel located at the corner and bus stop 20 feet from hotel windows. I will NEVER be back to this hotel!!! Shame they call themselves Best Western name!

    « Across the street from Brooklyn Bay - Nice ! »

    This south Brooklyn hotel is reasonably-priced & easy to get to - even if you are driving. Nice, pleasant location with restaurants close by. About 20 min to walk to the train that goes direct into Manhattan. Parking is free, but cramped. The room was small, but very nice, appearing to be newly decorated & tiled. They also have one of the nicest breakfast rooms I have seen, as well as decent breakfast food.

    « Great room as usual »

    Love it here been there many times with husband. Rooms very clean and love the new decor. Lobby fun to sit and watch guests in and out. Breakfast is fine and plenty of seating. Great place to stay in the Sheepshead bay area and near Rollin Roaster. Front desk workers always there and been there for a long time and love to chat with guests about what did they did or help with what to do.

    « Best option around; don't count on parking »

    We visit family in Breezy point down by the beach a couple times a year and this is the best option in the area. (Don't stay at the Comfort Inn a few blocks away, by the way). The rooms are nice and clean with spacious walk-in showers. The staff seemed mostly pleasant, and they have your standard hotel continental breakfast. A few things in the hallway looked like they were in need of repair--there was a taped-up broken glass door, for example. The real kicker is that parking is not guaranteed, which is a problem if you are trying to street park on a Saturday night. They have parking areas, one above ground and another under, but the spaces are VERY tight. Still, this hotel is the best place to stay in the area.

    « Not the room I reserved »

    During the check-in, employee at the front desk did not instruct me at all that the room that I have reserved (with one king bed) was not available and yet proceeded to check me into a two-queen bed guest room. When I have arrived to the room, my girlfriend and myself have contacted the front desk via room phone and asked why were we checked into a room that we did not ask for during online reservation, nor we were told about it during the actual check-in. The front desk employee has said that "well the room that you have reserved with one king bed is in the basement". The employee has added that it is an upgrade to what I have, but clearly it wasn't. I honestly didn't know what to say to that kind of response. There was no assistance or any further suggestions from the staff if I even want to move into the room that I have booked or appologies for the inconvenience. We have asked for 20% off for the stay and the employee has agreed to do so. I have yet to see that 20% to reflected on my bill... Not sure if I'll stay here at this location again.

    « This place is terrible. »

    Normally, I use the Comfort Inn across the Street. This week decided to stay at Best Western. Worst decision I made this week. This place is terrible. The front desk guys are rude and clueless. Management is no existant. Avoid this place at all cost. So upset that they took my money. Did not even stay the full night. Parking is also non existant. There is only like 10 parking spaces for the entire building! Good luck finding parking. However, they do cord off additional spaces so no one can park. Not cool. there is no spaces on the street either. The restaurant patrons and neighborhood residents monopolize the spots. . Internet was nonfunctional and disasterous. Numerous restaurants in the area. Spend you money on a place that will respect you. We will never stay at this place again.

    Parking is horrible, but hotel room is well made, walls are not thin, you can really feel the privacy. The night staff was very good at handling situations. When you come to the hotel late on a Saturday and it's fully book, no parking, you'll know you get an irate customer. He handled it well for me as a customer not to lose my temper and later on offered assistance. Top rated service!

The eating area was maintained constantly. The food didn't run out and the entire room was kept very clean. The staff was great. All of them were very helpful and courteous. I would definitely stay again if I were ever planning to return to NY (I'm not!). The staff were truly the nicest people we met in NY!

    Stayed here to go to a spring baseball game in Coney Island. The hotel inside and out is very clean. Location has bus stop right out front and subway several blocks over with ample places to eat in very close proximity. Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Room was perfectly sized and very clean comfortable and new. Not very much street noise, outside of the group who were singing while walking by. Hallways were a bit chilly, but your not sleeping in the hall. Breakfast area was cute and was a step above continental breakfast which was nice. We are planning on coming to area again, and will definitely stay here.

    « Forget about parking a car »

    Although we made hotel reservation, we were unable to utilize the facilities as we were unable to find a parking space. We arrived at the hotel approx. 6:30 PM and were told that no parking was available and we should attempt to find it in the neighborhood on one of the side streets. After driving around for roughly half hour without success we asked the hotel clerk for a refund. Was told by the desk clerk that it was not possible as the hotel would have to provide same consideration to other guests in similar circumstances. At this same time there as another couple in the lobby that had been driving for an hour without finding a parking space. Hotel suggestion was to drive some more. Corporate office was not helpful in refunding our deposit.

    « Don't bring a car »

    There are 30+ rooms and maybe 20 spaces. If however, you want to catch a bus - don't worry there will be one outside your window every 15 minutes. The hotel also has not upgraded to chip card and will swipe your card and then take a copy of your ID - definite ID theft potential.

    This is the second time that we stayed at this hotel. We had a good experience each time. It's been updated since our first stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. They welcomed us back. It had been at least 4 years since we had been there and we were still in there system. They had a great breakfast. They call it a continental breakfast but it's beyond that. There's scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, great coffee and even honey for your tea. The room was large by New York standards and very nice.

    Close to Coney Island park. I came here for an interview. Easy access, friendly staff. Quick simple check-in. Elevators available and tea/coffee in lobby. Room was clean, spacious, and quiet. Coffee/tea available in room. Nice layout / setup. Standup shower (no tub, at least not in my room). Pretty good breakfast (hot and cold): eggs, sausages, waffles, breads, pastries, muffins, fruit, cereal, yoghurts, beverages, lots of spreads too (nutella!). Breakfast area kept clean and constantly maintained during breakfast time. Not entirely decided whether the room is worth the price, could be a little better priced (especially since it is pretty much all the way south Brooklyn away from downtown Brooklyn, let alone Manhattan), but not a deal-breaker.

    Stayed here for a weekend with two small kids. Good location, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good selection at breakfast (although better on the first morning). Parking is limited but I didn't have a problem finding a spot either day. Our room was located on the main floor which i was concerned about since my kids are sensitive to noise but it was really quiet and we all slept well. Walked around the neighborhood a little and felt very safe. i would recommend this hotel to others.

    booked 2 rooms both were on the 2nd floor, rooms are clean and comfortable with a mini fridge and plenty of storage. At times it can be a little noisy from outside traffic and or other rooms. There is a complimentary expanded continental breakfast, with both hot and cold items on the basement level. There is a musty smell at times in the basement so request a room on an upper floor. Staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. Parking is very limited and tight with restaurants in walking distance

    We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. It was newly renovated, clean, and in a good location. We were going to a concert at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island. All the staff were friendly, the breakfast room has a lots of room and the food choices were fine. The only issue is that their parking lot is small, spaces are very small, and hard to get in and out. There is street parking, but it was hard to find a space. This was a very nice hotel to stay out. The room was very comfortable and modern.

    « Perfect for Smoking! »

    Only hotel we can smoke. This hotel is nothing special. What attracted us, is we can smoke here, and we smokers. Room was a little durty. Other tenant forgot his cigs in the bathroom, and they forgot to clean. Too, toilet was not cleaned. This room was ok, but old furniture and advertised renovated. Very humid too. Breakfast ok. Perfect for us, because we smoke.

    « Reasonable priced, updated, clean, good location »

    Was going to Coney Island for a concert at the new Ford Amphitheatre and needed a hotel for one night. Selected this property for price/location. Was happy with the cleanliness of the property and the pleasant staff. Bathroom was updated with walk in shower and was very clean. Room was clean. Beds were not the most comfortable but were fine. Parking spots are VERY limited at this property so if you have a car, better to leave it there and walk or taxi around. Overall good experience and would choose this property again.

    « Comfort stay in water front neighborhood »

    Im very impress with the new look on and within Best Western. For I'm not a big fan of this brand it is an eye opener stay. Under new management and renovations, made the stay comfortable for my kids and wife. Warm breakfast clean room and staff, there was much little fault we could find. Great neighborhood with middle eastern restaurants, 1 franchise bar n grill and a hip strip on the waterbfront. You'll also enjoyed a 45 year old fast food restaurant (Roll & Roaster). With a few more house keeping personals and a little more variety in the daily breakfast. It could be a summer stop for driving or fishing travelers. Enjoy

    « Worst hotel! Stay elsewhere! »

    Terrible place! Staff unfriendly. Booked a non-smoking loft room, as advertised and was given a basement smoking room with a porthole window that was opening onto the street at street level and with a smoking sewer just outside. Smelly, humid and simply dirty. Not the loft suite that was advertised online. There was no vacancy, so no other room was available. However, we did not see any other guests during the day or at breakfast, which was really gross. Next time in Brooklyn, I'll be staying somewhere else. This rat hole does not even deserve one star. And it cost almost $300 for one night.

    « Clean and Quiet »

    I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I usually expect best westerns to be a lower end hotel. The rooms here were just upgraded according to the manager. Very modern and exceptionally clean. The beds are extremely firm so do not expect pillow top mattresses here. Nice staff and decent breakfast. The parking is free but there are way less spots than there are rooms (but this is NY so that is the norm). We counted 14 parking spaces for the whole hotel. There is free on-street parking available. Overall, very good experience. Its close to numerous restaurants and attraction and very reasonably priced. The shower door is just a half clear glass. Very unique. On the whole, I would recommend this hotel. Comfortable and clean.

    « Unclean »

    I was very disappointed with the room. I had a late check in and after driving all day just wanted to lay down in a nice clean bed. When I turned on the lights, there was a spider web from the ceiling to the light and the spider was sitting there. I killed the spider and thought ew. Then I went to the bathroom and found one in the shower near the drain. At this point I felt like I couldn't even get under the covers in the room. There was no internet and I felt ripped off. For $200 I should have been able to have a clean room without spiders and some internet.

    « Bait and Switch! Would give 0 if I could. »

    They advertise "well appointed loft guest rooms" I booked a non-smoking double room to attend a wedding in the area. When arrived, the room was smoking and in the basement. The management needs tips in hospitality. Did not have another room, so it was take-it-or-leave-it! After discussing the issues with the Best Western 1-800 number rep, I was offered to leave without penalty... really? They could not find another Best Western in the area, so the manager called the car service for me. At that point I left and they charged me the full price of the room - almost US $300. NEVER AGAIN! I am disputing the charges, but the hotel insists that I requested a smoking basement (dirty, smoky, dingy, humid, damp smelly carpets!) - even with Asthma. I sent a complaint letter to the president of the Best Western International, and the reply was "we are sorry we cannot resolve the issue to your satisfaction and won't refund you". Best Western International, Mr. Kong, President and CEO! Horrible hotel, horrible service, horrible rooms, horrible administration.

    We stayed here for 5 nights. Rooms were clean and modern. Grounds were clean as well. Nice area lots of restaurants. A good walk to the train but doable. About an 40-50 min ride to Manhattan.

I would definitely stay again. Staff was great!!

    « Brooklyn Bay: Home of the Second Best Best Western I've Ever Stayed »

    The Best Western Plus in Brooklyn Bay is an excellent place to stay while you're in Brooklyn, especially when you consider its amenities, its location, and it's cost. I've stayed there every year since 2013, and each year the Brooklyn Bay Best Western has taken strides to make their hotel better. This past year, it would appear they've upgraded the back splashes in the bathrooms, along with new hardwood floors, which give the rooms a very clean and warm aesthetic feel. Additionally, the front desk staff (I dealt wtih Kabir and Jacqueline) are most helpful, especially when it comes to finding places to eat in the area. Definitely recommended.

    « Nice clean for a good sleep »

    This hotel was nice and clean. However, I had take a smoking room nothing else available at the last minute. I am not a smoker so it did reek of smoke. The air condition made loud noise all through the day and night even after maintenance man claimed he fixed it. Breakfast was a little more than continental with meat. Glad to see turkey bacon but it was not cooked. Price was high for a best western but i guess in nyc everything is expensive. The hotel does have parking that is a PLUS the camera's are right in the lobby at the front desk.

    « The PLUS is warranted! »

    I was concerned about the quality of this hotel because the quality of Best Western hotels vary so greatly. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The PLUS realistically represents the stepped up room with nice sheets, quality pillows, and decent furniture. You need a car to navigate the neighborhood and can park on site on an availability basis. The spaces are narrow and awkward in placement. But, have patience to park. It is better than finding parking on the street. Coney Island beach and amusement park are nearby. It was fun to visit.

It is an immaculate motel, the beds and pillows are very comfortable, a good flat screen TV on the wall, ample closet and drawer space. Breakfast is served self service daily in the lower floor cafe. Coffee is available all day. Each floor is accessible by elevator. As you enter there is a lift that takes you to and from the lobby. AC and Heat is controlled by each room. Car Service would pick us up and drop us off in the parking area which was very accessible to our room. Several restaurants are within walking distance.

    Stayed here for a week in March. Very nice front desk staff and very accommodating house keeping. The room was absolutely beautiful. Didn't like that we were per say 'underground' but the rooms were beautiful. The area is quiet so the room was quiet. The downfall was the parking lot is small and narrow. It was hard to maneuver out of it. But very thankful it offered parking as a lot of hotels do not in Brooklyn. Will definitely stay here again

    We were in town for a funeral and this Best Western was the closest to the funeral home. We were only there for the night but it was comfortable, newly renovated, and clean. The breakfast was adequate and had enough of a variety for all of us and nice hot coffee. Not sure in that location and that price what more you could want. All the employees were efficient and courteous. Only complaint was the heating unit was unusually loud but it did not interfere with our sleep...not really a problem and we didn't mention it to the employees so would not be fair to knock them or the hotel down for that. We would probably go again if we go back to the area.

    I reside in Florida,and my mother in-law passed away and lived in Brooklyn N.Y. With my head in spins from the sad news, all I could think about now was where I and my family were going to stay in Brooklyn for the funeral. I called Best Western in Sheepshead Bay and explained my situation. Without hesitation, they booked me a double room. Once we arrived, the staff was so friendly and accommodating. The hotel and room was clean and comfortable, the service was great and the staff was very friendly. And to my surprise, they even offer a free breakfast buffet, eggs, sausage, make your own waffles, muffins, bagels, cereals and so much more to mention. Would I go back? Absolutely! I personally want to thank Best Western for making my grieving time comforting. Thank you.

    « Reminded Us of San Francisco! »

    Trying to save some money, we decided to head outside of NYC and give Brooklyn a whirl. We were not disappointed with the hotel. In fact, being just across the street from the water, it reminded us a little bit of San Francisco. The staff was very friendly, the room was smaller but comfortable (and appeared to be recently remodeled) and there were tons of dining options near by. We hiked it to the subway station, where several people we talked to found it a bit strange that we were all the way out in Brooklyn, but everyone was helpful and we felt very safe. A great part of our trip was discovering how well Hollywood has captured the look of Brooklyn. When we got to the subway station, it looked just like something you'd see in the movies. The hotel is also very close to Coney Island, so we took an afternoon to eat Nathan's hot dogs, ride the giant wheel, and enjoy the aquarium and boardwalk. Overall, a very pleasant stay and we'd recommend it if you don't mind being away from NYC and doing a bit of walking.

    I was really looking forward to staying here with my friend as its right near the bay. The hotel itself looks really run-down and is under construction. It also felt like we were the only ones there. We checked in on a Wednesday at around 2am as my flight was delayed and requested a late checkout for Thursday. Please note the hotel seemed empty. When we asked for a late check out on Thursday the rude front desk guy told us that if we were not out in 5-min (it was 12:20pm) he was going to charge us another day and we would still have to leave. I can understand if it were peak season or if the hotel was busy and bustling with people but it wasn't either of those. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone and I truly hope Best Western Plus knows how to treat there customers better.

    Nice hotel with great front desk staff. Friendly and very helpful. I was there for a week on business, and was on the 2nd floor on the Emmons street side. I am a light sleeper, and the first night was a little noisy. I asked to be switched to the opposite side, and this was no problem. Courteous front desk staff helped with dinner suggestions (Maria's a must if you like Italian). Rooms were clean and well maintained. The only issue would be if you need to check out earlier than the initial check out date. Was charged a full night. I can understand perhaps a half night, but a full night is a little too much. Other than that I had no issues. Parking can be tight if you have a larger car, and parking under the hotel is impossible unless you have a Smart car. Hotel is in good area with lots of food choices (Randazzo's Clam Bar, Roll & Roaster, Maria's, and a host of others). I would stay again if business takes me to the area.
