Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Thevineline Brooklyn location
Back basement room....somewhat antiquated.
Hotel reception and common area were under construction.
But location was very convenient within blocks of great Brooklyn dining locations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lucyhotel Excellent, personal service and great location
This is a great hotel whether you are visiting Brooklyn or Manhattan. It is right next to a subway station which is very convenient. The hotel is very clean and the staff is excellent. It had a personal feel to it. The room has great heat/air controls and we were comfortable. I didn't hear a sound in the hallways at night. My only complaint is I did not get any shampoo (only conditioner) and the toiletries and towels were not replenished as I would have expected. (But if I had contacted the front desk I am sure they would have responded quickly). We were there for three nights and were very pleased!

The Holiday Inn Express in Brooklyn was convenient to the subway and has some good restaurants in the area. The guest rooms are small and the elevator is extremely slow. Breakfast was good. I'm sure the hotel was less expensive than many others in New York, however if we travel to the city again, we will look for other options.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bh1818 Excellent breakfast, room, and staff, but too much Muzak
Everything was great except that the outdoor Muzak speakers near our room were left on all night. When this was mentioned to the front desk they took steps to turn off the sound system the next night.
The room was clean and comfortable with many amenities in the bathroom and a coffee maker. Television could have some more channel selections.
The breakfast was much more than I was expecting and very good with an attentive staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ryanctwx good service, pleasant stay
The rooms are a bit compact. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. The main issue that I ran into had to do with the location on the top floor. Normally this would be a great thing, but the elevator was the problem. Not only was it slow, but it felt stressed every time I had to use it - especially on trips from the lobby to floor 9. It also took a while to respond when I needed it because it moves so slowly and has to accommodate quite a few people.
The hotel staff is amazingly friendly. If there was something they were able to help me with they did it. I was with a larger wedding group and the front desk manager really made an effort to reach out to us and make sure our needs were taken care of. So I do appreciate that.

The hotel at first was sketchy, they are renovating I guess. The room itself was comfortable and clean, the staff was very helpful. The manager Naomi always greeted with an amazing smile, and willingness. I look forward to going back to see the end result of the chaos which was the lobby

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by J.Sch Not received what was confirmed - very unpleasant experience
We frequently stay in Brooklyn because of Family. We stayed recently at the Holiday Inn Express because we needed a room with two double beds. We booked and paid in advance for specifically that kind of room. After checking in we sent into a room with one king bed. The woman at the reception couldn’t tell us only that they have overbooking issues. After explaining it the next day to the manager we could move to a room with two beds. The manager assured us that we would have the night fully compensated. However, at the checkout we were overcharged for the two other nights and paid much more than initially stated on the confirmation. This is not really what we expected of Holiday Inn Express as we had no bad experiences before with that hotel chain.
Other than that the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast room is tiny and by far not all guests were able to find seating. At least it was possible to take breakfast into the room. There was only one small elevator for the whole hotel which led to long waiting times. We had a room in the eighth floor and ended up walking.
After all those issues, we can’t recommend Holiday Inn Express Brooklyn to anyone. There are far better options nearby.
