Initially I was a bit hesitant about this hotel after reading some of the other reviewers, but since I didnt get a better deal for the thanksgiving 2008 , I stayed with this reservation and I am glad I did it.
So first of all- little introduction- I am an Ex New Yorker and wanted to show NY to my wife and meet my friends etc. I didnt want to pay extra $$$ for the manhattan hotels, since its not a big deal commuting to the city from Brooklyn.
Now , about the hotel - Its very very clean and the customer service is excellent. Room was big and house keeping too is excellent. They got their own parking lot, a microwave and cafeteria for breakfast in the basement. Breakfast has free cereals bagels , coffee etc etc ++ they got fitness center too in the basement. Subway is a 20mins walk or just a B4 bus to sheepshead bay . the bus stops right infront of hotel !! After having so much of comfort I am just wondering if I am missing anything..
Oh, One thing - the shower wasnt dispensing the water with high pressure . It was kind of OK bath..
Also , these guys got a free internet wireless ( unsecured) + internet access and printer in the lobby. There were NO bedbugs any where - since i stayed for a week and saw / felt nothing. My recommendation is to ask for 2nd or 3rd floor rooms. The ones in the basement didnt look so great..
If you are trying to book , go through the bestwestern's site so that u can cancel the reservations 24hrs prior to the date Unlike the orbitz / expedia non refund policiess.. All in all - a great place to stay !! Greatly recommended. (BTW _ I didnt have the review in mind , so the pic is just to get an idea )
