I too had my long standing reservation for a week at Bubba & Bean Lodges in mid-September cancelled at the last minute. Once again the explanation was that one of the owners had only just been diagnosed with cancer and they were having to close temporarily! Although I’ve seen no mention of temporary closure on their [-] website. Since my...

We appreciate the guests review. We realize we should not have released our personal issue and use it as the excuse for the canceled reservations. We have learn't to keep information of that nature private as it can come back to haunt you in the end. Such is the life of a bed and breakfast. Many guests that had their...

I too was scheduled to stay @ BBLodges in July and received a disturbing email from the owners saying they would need to cancel my reservation and close the Inn due to one of the owners being diagnosed with cancer. We quickly made alternate reservations and had a fantastic time in the city. I returned to Trip Advisor after our...

We stayed at BBLodges for 4 nights mid-Jul. All correspondence prior to our arrival was via email and they responded promptly and courteously. As with some of the other reviews, our initial reaction when we were dropped off by shuttle ($38 from JFK - it's a $45 flat rate for taxi's out of JFK) was "this doesn't look that great"...

I was scheduled to stay here but the owners encountered a medical emergency. Instead of just leaving my party of 4 - high and dry- since their issue certainly was more important than our va-cay. These guys put us up in one of the nicest hotels and took care of all arangements for our party. We even got a discount...

This place is excellent value for the location and price. You're not paying top dollar, so don't expect all the luxuries. Our apartment was very clean with plenty of room to move about (we were in the one bedroom family apartment). The bathroom was small and a little old, but it's clean and has a great powerful shower. We did...

Thanks for the review. The name of the restaurant you are thinking of (I think) is El Paso Taqueria. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We will work on the bathroom and mattress on the one bedroom apartment. We did not want to update it just yet as we have our other building finishing construction and will have...

Needed to be in New York city on the spur of the moment, most hotels I phoned were booked solid. I emailed Bubba and Bean Lodges of NY to check on any last minute openings for a room and received a prompt response stating that a studio was available for my requested dates. I inquired as to amenities, proximity to...

We would like to thank guests for their review. But, as with any dispute there are 2 sides to a story. We would like to point out that we intentionally did not confirm their reservation because the said guest was disrespectful to our establishment. We informed them of the availability of a room and proceeded to confirm rate. After they...

I stayed at Bubba & Bean Lodges on my first trip to nyc in November 07. It was perfect for what we wanted: cheap and cheerful = more money to go shopping with. All of the apartments are located in a townhouse (i think they had just bought the house next door to convert into apartments aswell). The room was...

The B&B Lodge is a great place to stay. The area may seem a little shady, but it's really not. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The best part is its a block from the subway which was really convenient. The room was great and very clean, and the hosts were really nice and accommodating. The price for a 1 bedroom...

Sorry this took so long, but thank you for your hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay at BB Lodges. It was the perfect place for us; for two weeks we felt like New Yorkers. The location could not have been better, since it was between the Yankee Stadium (we saw seven games) and the Times Square with excellent subway connections...
