Getting a hotel in Brooklyn, especially near the heart of the city, can be a bit iffy, especially if you're on a budget. But the Best Western Arena, on Atlantic Avenue proved to be a good choice.
I was visiting my two daughters who live in Bushwick, and the closest hotel to their apartment had comments under room tips like, "Stay somewhere else." So I was a bit apprehensive when booking and pre-paying for a three day stay.
I asked for a quiet room and late arrival. When I came in at 11:30 pm, the last place in the hotel was mine. In the basement. What??? Well, it turned out perfectly. The Long Island Railroad rumbles up Atlantic Avenue out front, and my deluxe king room, C-001, was quiet all three nights, had a window at the level of the back parking lot, and was sparkling clean each day. There was a microwave and little frig, which I didn't use, the room was decent sized for one or two, and the flat screen never got turned on.
Free breakfast was up on floor one (like the continental system), and the attendant was quite pleasant. Food choices were cereals, pastries, yogurt, boiled eggs, egg sandwiches, fruit, and some kind of quick cooking pancakes which I didn't try. Coffe was from a machine, and not quite as good as Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, but hey, it was Free!
Would I stay again? Yes. Not only is it a good hotel choice, but there's a bus that runs within three blocks of my kids' apartment. They'll be seeing me again, I'm sure.
