The worse hotel everPosted Nov 21, 2013
Cons: no way
Location: nothing just being scared in the middle of night
This was the worse hotel ever seen in my entire life. If you want your car/room to be robbed welcome there ! it smells really bad there and the rooms are not clean at all. the place i guess is not made for visitors .... Do not go there.

Horrible ExperiencePosted Nov 21, 2013
The first time I stayed there it wasn't bad. This time, the place was dirty. While I understand that they are renovating, they started work on the room across from mine at 7:00, drilling, hammering, etc. When I complained, they really didn't seem to care or even offer an apology.

Disappointing experience at Brooklyn Motor InnPosted Oct 29, 2013
Pros: The price - very reasonable. Maybe young people wouldn't mind the inconveniences. It does have plenty of inside street level parking.
Cons: Management could add coffee makers or coffee in the lobby along with some fruit and snacks.
Location: One of the biggest drawbacks was location. Very hard to find because of the way the streets run. It's out of the way for cool stuff to do and see.
I booked a room for 3 nights mostly based on cost. Rooms are being renovated, and there was a layer of plaster dust in the elevator and all down the hallway. My room was very small and there was no hair dryer. (I got one the next morning from housekeeping.) There are no coffee makers - the only things available were bottled water and a couple varieties of juice and soda in the lobby. No blankets - just a bedspread. There are coffee shops in the area that deliver, and I made use of them. I was given completely wrong directions to a Dunkin' Donuts that was walking distance the night I arrived. I spoke to a different clerk in the morning and his reaction was, "Oh, that guy is crazy." This clerk was much more helpful. He gave me some take out menus and also a card with a car service that is much cheaper than Yellow cabs. Light bulbs on both nightstands did not work.

Postage-stamp sized room!Posted Oct 13, 2013
Pros: Close to the Cruise Ship terminal
Cons: Could have been much cleaner. The desk clerk told us we could walk with our luggage to the terminal! NOT!!!! Waaaay too far for an older couple.
Location: Ate dinner and breakfast at a nice restaurant with patio nearby called Cesar's.
The room was extremely small and both the floor and shower had not been cleaned properly. I had to clean dirt out of the floor of the shower before we took showers. Ugh!

worth the pricePosted Oct 13, 2013
Cons: improve the internet
The hotel is very clean, equipped with refrigerator and microwave. TV is extremely large. The only problem is the internet was not good, almost can not use.

You get what you pay for, or a little lessPosted Oct 3, 2013
Pros: Off-street parking (not secure, but there is CCTV); good shower, real bar of soap, microwave and refrigerator. Convenient to the Cobble Hill/C Gardens
Cons: Room clean, but a couple of hairs in the shower stall; elevator rug and stairwell dirty. No coffee.
Location: It is close to a bus line, but the subways are a bit of a walk.
I chose this motel because of the parking and its convenience to the place where someone I was visiting lived. The Comfort Inn nearby only had on-street, first-come-first served parking. And better hotels were much more expensive. Although I think my low rating of this hotel is accurate, I would stay there again. I’d just bring some coffee. And maybe ear plugs. The biggest drawback might be the truck noise. On the Friday night I was there, a Semi ran his motor for more than an hour outside my room and a truck backing up woke me at 5:45. However, that is close to when I usually wake up, so it might not have bothered other people. One unknown is that the building seems to be under renovation. Two rooms on my floor were guttered. This could create a noise problem during the week days.

This is NOT a non-smoking hotelPosted Sep 22, 2013
Pros: The location was 1 block from a bus stop which connected with the subway.
Cons: Everything above.....
We booked this as a non-smoking room in a non-smoking hotel. Corridors and elevator smelled of smoke. Room drapes were terribly odorous with smoke and tobacco smells. Even with 24-hr antihistamines my allergies were horrible. Smoking section was at the entry door to the hotel. It wafted up and into the rooms, which were really tiny anyway. Bed and pillows were uncomfortable. Lampshades still had cellophane coverings, mostly torn and in disarray. On the last morning they were having trouble replacing a light bulb in the elevator, so they turned off the power and started to dismantle the ceiling, including the plywood inner lining. Then they refused to turn it back on so we could get ourselves and our luggage from 3rd floor to the ground floor, until I threatened to call the police. In general, most of the staff appeared to have no training in customer courtesy or hotel management, and no desire to be helpful. A truly unhappy hotel experience.

Bad selectionPosted Sep 9, 2013 on Hotels.com

Cost effective, convenient and easyPosted Sep 7, 2013
Pros: Location, free parking and wifi and price. .
Cons: A screaming child running in the hallway, woke me at 5:20am. Should have worn ear plugs, the hotel and outside traffic can be noisy in the early AM.
Location: Red Hook, IKEA, Fairway market.. Water taxi to Wall Street on the weekends from IKEA or Fairway Market.
I grew up in Brooklyn and am familiar with this industrial area at the mouth of the Hugh Carrey tunnel to lower Manhattan. This tunnel was called the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel when I was a kid. Red hook is a transitional neighborhood and the hotel is located one mile from the Fairway market (love this market). Parking was limited, however, I always pulled into an available spot. My room was small, about 2-3ft clearance around the queen size bed. I was solo so this was not a concern. The room had a half size refrigerator and small microwave. they provided shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, mouth wash, soap and a shower cap. No hair dryer or a glass/paper cup. Adequate number of towels and toilet paper provided.
