This is definitely not a luxury hotel. But it is a fine place to stay at a very reasonable rate. It is very convenient to the subway. The staff is very helpful. There is a grocery store right next door. In short, if you want a convenient budget stay, this is a great choice. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g60827-d1879049-r347508769-BEST_WESTERN_Plus_Prospect_Park_Hotel-Brooklyn_New_York.html# If you are looking for luxury - a pool for example - this would not be the best choice.
The room was extremely tight & small.
very friendly and helpful staff. couldnt check in early but they watched my luggage all day. and there is no ice machine on every floor but they were willing to bring ice to my room. very knowledgeable of area and pointed out some nice sites and places to eat. neighborhood is going thru some renewal but wasnt as bad as downtown brooklyn so cant complain.
The location is convenient and the room decor is pleasant, but I would recommend avoiding this place until they get new management. TL;DR: Damp, dirty towels. Broken elevator. Hard bed. Awful smell. No room cleaning during the week. 1: Cleanliness - The towels in the room were damp. When I called and requested a fresh set of towels, they weren't sure if they had any. Belongings from a previous guest were still in the room. The bed was made, but I'm not even sure if we had clean sheets. They at least appeared clean. I thought it was odd that there was no "do not disturb" or "privacy please" or "cleaning requested" sign to hang on the door. I was less surprised about this when we noticed the room cleaning service never came during the week (they came Friday only). 2: Elevator broken. We had to haul our heavy luggage to the 4th floor at 2am after 8 hours of travel. Not fun. Broken elevator seems to be a recurring problem. They should have hotel staff available to carry bags when the elevator is broken. 3: Comfort. The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable. Woke up with a sore back and neck every day. A warm shower would have been nice but... 4: Smell. Oh my god the smell. The bathroom smelled so horrible. Using the vent made it worse. Running water made it worse. Using the bathroom at all made it worse. Gross.
