In North Brooklyn Mod-Lodge is the best. Our first 2 days were spent in Hotel La Jolie overlooking a noisy highway with a box of a room & entry that looked like a jail. Mod-Lodge was the opposite with a entry that was a beautifully landscaped garden. The room it self was an interesting L shape with furnishings that were ultra modern. [ it also cost half the price] This place is definitely a must stay.

I have to say after our long stay at mod lodge we felt like the owner was a new friend. Great guy & very talented. He said he practiced architecture & you can see it in the way he put the place together. We stayed in the Garden Room [which was the better of the 2] & loved looking out the windows at the green garden. You'll love it! Great art, architecture, furniture & location!

We stayed in the rear of this small wooden townhouse in the quiet and safe Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. With the crazy room prices around New York, I can definitely recommend staying here: it is a good value. I also like the area nearby very much because of the assortment of affordable restaurants - French, Italian, Thai, Mexican, American and Polish (it is a Polish neighborhood) and the many bars that come alive at night. Took a walk all the way to Williamsburg which took about 30 minutes and had lots of fun looking around there. It is more lively in Williamsburg -- while Greenpoint is less of a hotspot. The room itself was fine enough, though nothing fancy. The shared bathroom is down some steps from the room. The back yard is a very pretty surprise. I will be back here next time I come to NYC.

Given a choice I won't ever stay in a hotel again. First is value our stay at the Band B was $99. a night for 14 days. The hotels I contacted were 3x the price. Also having a unique accommodation really suited me & my artsy daughter.
