No discrepancies Hot water Tv Nice bed Clean rooms All here

Disgusting and hey, someone set up a recording studio singing out loud. Terrible.

It’s always a great stay at Gowanus! The staff are friendly and check in is always a smooth transition. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable.

I didn’t like that there’s no shower door or NBC channel

The rooms are clean and efficient, and the staff is friendly and helpful. When I checked in I was upgraded to a different room because of a potential problem with the thermostat in the room they were originally going to place me in. Everything worked well in my room and the beds are clean and comfortable. It's located half a block from a subway station so for people looking to use public transit the location is great. The only issue was the elevator not functioning the last two nights of my stay, not a dealbreaker for me but for anyone with mobility issues this would be a serious problem. So that's something to definitely consider. This is a solid, utilitarian hotel for people looking to explore the city and not spend too much time in their room.

Pretty, stylish, with an industrial look, I had a room with a fantastic view of downtown Brooklyn and lower Manhattan. The bathroom had a pretty white sink that had been poorly designed so when you wash your hands, water splashed on to the floor, but that was a minor inconvenience for the view. And the shower was great, as was the bedding. I paid a low price for the room; if I'd paid alot more, I might have more critical, but maybe not. On the edge of Gowanus and Park Slope: if you walk the block to Fifth Avenue, you're in the world of upscale coffee places, and if you walk the block in the other direction, it's a neighborhood industrial buildings, with a great diner on the corner of Third Avenue. The N train is right across the street from the hotel.

great staff, good location, very restful and checkout was easy

Small, cold and dirty ; youd think such a tiny room , with hardwood floors and a locker room style shower that theyd have no problems cleaning up .

Small but nice, clean and great location. I would definitely go back

I love the decor and the general cleanliness of the place. Close to the subway and a very good BBQ restaurant.

Nice place to stay and close to downtown Brooklyn. It was a 11 minute walk to the Barckay Center. The rooms are small, but if you know NY then you know anywhere you stay in NY the rooms are not huge. Overall the room and place is very clean and well kept. Frank the hotel staff was very professional and nice. I parked on the street and my car was fine. The neighborhood was also great. I would stay again.

Check in was quick, room is basic but serve purpose. I was just spending the night for work. The bathroom is tiny, and the shower is a bit awkward. ( it’s literally 18”x 36”( at max) and there was a column in the middle. The water pressure from the rain shower head was great lol.
