A Wonderful Experience !

4.2 on August 28, 2012

My Spouse and I stayed at A&G Bed and breakfast for a weekend for the first time. We could not have been more pleased with our discovery. Yvette the in-keeper was very friendly and answered all our question before our booking, which was very professional.We reserved the Asian room which we saw photos of online to which i may say the theme was captured very well. It was very spacious, appointed with everything we may have wished for: comfortable bed, lighting to read with and Flat screen TV. Breakfast was self served and had a variety of bagels, cereal, fruits and gourmet coffee(which is a regular routine for my spouse and i). Transportation was accessible around the area and not too far from the city. A& G is a good example of what a bed and breakfast should be and we will definitely be back whenever we visit NYC. Recommend!!!


will stay again

I stayed at the A&G Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights while visiting friends and family in Brooklyn. The place was perfect for a simple guy like me who got up, showered,eat breakfast and was out and about. for this price i would def. visit again. ANTHONY, V.


Worst B&B Experience I Have Ever Had

1.0 on May 31, 2012

This was the worse experience in a B&B I have ever had, and I have had many! My friend and I booked a room here for two nights. When we arrived, we had to wait 45 minutes in the pitch dark for someone to let us in. We had reserved a room with two beds, but we were given a room with only one bed. When we pointed this out, we were told that there was a futon that could be brought in for us. The fellow who let us in then left to go get the futon (which we assumed would be somewhere in the house), and 20 minutes later called us to say that he needed us to spot him the cab fare in order for him to bring the futon back. We opted to share the bed. I should add that the bed was not prepared for us Instead, we were shown a side room downstairs with piles of laundry and told we could find the linens there, at which point the fellow left, leaving us to root around for sheets that fit our bed. We never did find towels, so resorted to using a washcloth. The bathroom was so dirty we opted not to take showers. The bedroom was also unclean--there was still garbage in the waste bin, and garbage on the floor. We were promised a breakfast which never appeared (we never saw the fellow again, and not another soul in the house). The kitchen was full of stale and rotting food. There was not a thing to eat. My friend and I, unable to get anyone on the phone the next morning to help us resolve our issue with the room, decided to book a room in another hotel for our second night. To top it all off, the proprietress ignored our calls completely and never refunded us the money for our stay! I am completely baffled by all of the good reviews, given our experience. Having to spend half of a day trying to find another room in a place that we could remotely afford left us precious little time to enjoy the city. A truly awful experience.

Innkeeper Response
First of all, I think these guests are scam artists. Thanks to the awful economy, there are people visiting Inns -and they make it their business to create scenarios whereby they can extract their payments back. They justify these actions by writing bad reviews. First of all the customers were fully refunded. Period. I have refund receipt. Second of all, this customer said they make a habit of visiting BnB's and extracting refunds. Read between the lines "had lots experience visiting BAD BnB's I employ a professional cleaning service and pay $20.00 per hour to make sure all of the rooms are cleaned and made up in a professional manner. They have been working for me since early 2012 and I have never had one complaint since their employment. As far as the guests waiting 45 minutes, they were 1 hour late coming to the house. I ask every customer to give me a precise time of arrival. I have 2 jobs and Jack has 2 jobs and kids! As far as their not being any food ion the house...that is a straight out lie. I had a French family of 5 staying in the house for 5 days. They never complained about not having enough food!! In addition, I never received any phone calls from them. As far as some strange individual asking them for money etc., I just think this is just one of their fabrications to manage to get a free room for a couple of nights by these Con Artists. This season, we have had over 300 or more people stay at our establishment. I have not had any complaints about the food or cleanliness. I am, as always open to suggestions on how we can improve our service. We are also grateful to those who keep coming back to us. Thanks!


Alternative Lodging

4.0 on May 09, 2012

I'm in the process of securing a new place of employment. I was in town for a job interview & get in a little R&R. I sought a place to stay that was affordable but at least within close range to transportation and points of interest to the West Indian community. A Jamaican restaurant is about two blocks from the house. The "J/Z" train's Chauncey Street and the "A" train stations are short walks away. The Red Room (Room #9) was excellent with its feng sui and all! The owner even gave me a basket of goodies that included Bath & Body Works products. I recommend A&G to persons whom are looking for an affordable place to stay on a short term basis or to someone whom needs to stay in NYC for more than 3 nights who would prefer not to pay high hotel rates.
