Clean, inexpensive,Posted Nov 10, 2013
Pros: Clean, close to subway, kitchen, close to grocery stores.
Cons: The wood stairs are noisy. It adds to the charm of this old (but very well kept) house.
Location: Within walking distance to Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Easy access to the subway (B, Q, S) with a +/- 15, 20 minute ride to Manhattan.
I booked this B&B for a 4 night stay in early November. Staff was very pleasant, facilities very clean, my room (Ebony) was small, but enough for a single person. It has a kitchen, and the only drawback is that you have to share a bathroom. Not really a problem, since it's clean and very well kept. I booked this place as I was running the NY marathon. It has easy access to the subway B, Q, S. With a 15 to 20 min. ride to Manhattan.

Clean, on a quiet side streetPosted Sep 7, 2013
We felt comfortable. Would have preferred another chair or a small table for eating breakfast. We had to stand or eat sitting on the floor. Nice to have breakfast foods available in the kitchenette.

Pros: it was clean
Cons: staff availability, a thorough check-in
Location: i didn't get very aquainted with the neighborhood. i wish the staff would've helped recommend what's good locally. and offer a neighborhood map.
the house itself is pretty and very clean, but the staff is basically invisible. i was told in a very brief and uninformative "check in" that if i needed anything, i was to either go outside and ring the doorbell or send them an email. this was pretty uncool in my mind already. they said they would respond quickly.. they did not. when being shown to my room, i felt like i was keeping her from doing something else and that there was no time for questions. perhaps there is a different set of rules for new york city b&b's of which i am just not aware. but i was extremely disappointed and frustrated by the lack of help there. i think if you are going to run a b&b and take people's money for it, that you need to also commit to putting in the time to be there for your guests. i will not return, i would rather have part of my money returned. ...also, no a.c. or t.v. i'm glad it wasn't very hot when i was there. and don't forget to ask ahead for breakfast in the a.m. they didn't tell me that. it was mentioned on their website, which is not where i made the reservation. i thought i should've been mentioned to me at some point. two big thumbs down.. unless you have no desire to socialize and are very familiar with the city.

Not what we expectedPosted Aug 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
We chose this B&B because it was close to Prospect Park and we had planned a 5K there. We arrived fairly late 10PM and weren't sure we were at the right place as there is no signage on the building. There is an imposing CCTV camera and stickers regarding guard dogs. After a few minutes Michelle came to the door and told us we were in the right place. It was very hot in New York the week we were there and the air conditioning in our room was not on when we arrived. The small window unit was able to cool down the room after about 2-3 hours. We were asked to turn the air off when we left (?). It is quite a distance from the subway lines. Do not think we will stay here again.

Roomy. Close to businesses & public transportationPosted Jul 7, 2013
Pros: The location and well maintained interior. The kitchen on the third floor was very helpful with it's full size refrig, sink and utensils.
Cons: The owner could be more welcoming. She never asked about our comfort, offered towels or linen or offered to have someone vacuum. We were on our own
Location: This bed and breakfast is within walking distance of Prospect Park. Many restaurants provide a wide variety of dining choices.
This bed and breakfast is attractive and in the midst of an eclectic and diverse community. Lots of restaurants, shops and very close to the metro. It's easy to get to and from Manhattan.It is definitely a homey feel with the rich wood, high ceilings and vintage look. The first night, the electricity shut off. We were warned not to use the ceiling chandelier. Michelle, the owner, asked us to use the table lamps instead. But, when we turned on the television, the lights went off. It was late and we had to awaken Michelle so that she could reset the circuit breaker. The remainder of our three day stay, we sat in the dark when we turned on the t.v. We never were offered clean towels or to have the room cleaned. We're not messy, so cleaning wasn't an issue, but we could have used towels. The last day, I requested new towels and they were provided. Even though the bathroom was shared with another resident on the second floor, this didn't cause much of a delay or inconvenience. We loved the large, stone tiled bathroom with the glass enclosed shower. It would have been good to have hooks in the bathroom because there wasn't anywhere to put clothes or to hang the towel while showering. Also, since the bathroom was shared, we would have appreciated cleaning spray for the toilet and shower. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to travelers who don't expect frills or lots of attention. Continental breakfast would have been good, also. There was tea,coffee and water

Very Sweet Place to Stay!Posted Jun 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
Michelle who owns the place was very friendly! The place has a very home-like feeling, sweet with stained glass, hardwood floor and classical-looking furniture pieces. Room was clean, mattress was comfortable. The towels provided very fluffy. When I visited, big bottles of Fructis shampoo, conditioner and Dove shower gel were provided. Location was 7min walk from subway station (Prospect Park), and neighborhood was very safe and quiet with birds tweeting in early morning. Manhattan was a 40-min subway ride away. Though there was no TV in my room, I didn't mind and I think It was a very worthwhile stay!

CharmingPosted May 27, 2013
Room was small, but for ~$80 a night, that is to be expected. I didn't spend much time in the hotel, as I was mostly out and about, but the hotel was charming and comfortable, and located on a quiet street. The Hotel is located by Prospect park which is a bit out of the way from Manhattan, so if you're looking to be almost exclusively spending time in Manhattan during your stay, unless you want a 30ish minute Subway ride to Manhattan, I'd recommend somewhere closer, but if you're looking to enjoy Prospect Park and other areas of Brooklyn, and all they have to offer (botanical gardens, Prospect park zoo, etc.) then this place is perfect!

Great value for a B&B in BrooklynPosted Apr 7, 2013
Pros: Location, "home-iness," price.
Location: a couple of blocks from Prospect Park and Prospect Park subway station. Easy access to Manhattan.
We found this place by luck when looking for something relatively convenient to our son's apartment. It's a lovely brownstone a couple of blocks from the Prospect Park subway (and Prospect Park itself). They had one room left -- the Morgan, which had a lovely bedroom and sitting room, and I think it might be the biggest room in the place. And it was still less expensive than the Best Western, and oh-so-much-more charming. If you're expecting that breakfast is part of "bed and breakfast," it is if you want to pay $10 each. We didn't, and didn't care about that. I WAS concerned that (1) it would be noisy and (2) the shared bath might be limiting. Neither was an issue. The rooms are well-insulated and unless someone was walking up the steps, you didn't hear much. There are only a couple rooms on each of the 3 floors so you don't feel like you're sharing. If you're driving, parking is a challenge. You may do some circling to find something, and be sure to check out the days/times of street sweeping if you don't want a ticket. Bottom line: we will visit our son again, and this is the first place I'll check for availability.

Nice Safe B&BPosted Mar 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
My stay started out a little rocky that was my fault, but the woman that owns the B&B was very polite and kind. I showed up at about 1 in the morning to a house that she owns. I thought they would have 24 hour service, but they don't. It was my mistake for assuming. I called the owner a couple times and she answered. She let me in with no questions asked and escorted me to my room. It was clear she had been sleeping and even showed me around a little bit. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. My room did not have a TV, but other rooms did. I spoke with the lady on my last evening when I was coming back from being with some friends. We spoke for a few minutes and she is extremely friendly. The area is nice and safe. It was also near my friends, which was a plus. I would stay here again in the future.
