Join me and take a look at Brooklyn’s top budget friendly hotels. They will not disappoint.

Wyndham Garden Brooklyn Sunset Park

The Wyndham Garden Brooklyn Sunset Park hotel offers the chance to enjoy New York City with convenience. This modern Brooklyn hotel is near three NYC subway lines, offering transit to all five boroughs, as well as top tourist destinations stops such as the Statue of Liberty, Broadway, Times Square, the Empire State Building, and more. It’s less than 25 miles from three airports, so you can even take an airport shuttle to and from the hotel.

Starting at $99 a night, this hotel is a steal! For a small fee (less than any NYC restaurant), you can add a morning continental breakfast or full breakfast buffet.

Red Lion Inn & Suites Brooklyn

Renovated in 2016, Red Lion Inn & Suites Brooklyn is a 104-room hotel with a large inventory of double/double rooms. Hotel rates include complimentary hot American buffet breakfast and high-speed wireless internet access in all areas. The hotel is also pet-friendly and features amenities such as a suite shop, daily newspapers, an ATM, and a 24-hour business center. It’s conveniently located within walking distance to public transportation, including 13 different subway lines and LIRR train, enabling you to travel anywhere in NYC’s five boroughs.

Beginning at just $80 per night, this is a great deal for a premier city hotel.

Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Brooklyn

Nestled in the vibrant heart of Brooklyn, Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Brooklyn sets a new standard for Fairfield Inn hotels. This affordable hotel (less than $140 per night) boasts a spacious atrium lobby and rooftop gardens with views of both the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines. Explore nearby attractions such as Prospect Park and the New York Aquarium. With a room just steps away from the subway and a short walk to any number of sights and restaurants, you couldn’t ask for a better location.

Save money on dining out in the morning and enjoy the complimentary full buffet breakfast. You’ll want to have lots of energy to explore NYC.

New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge 

Near the waterfront base of the Brooklyn Bridge, you cannot get a better location than the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. You can walk or bike to Manhattan (around 30 minutes one way) on a clear day. The modern and well-appointed rooms offer flat-­screen TVs, desks, mini-fridges and coffee makers. The hotel also offers a 1,924-square-foot health club with an indoor pool and a 24-hour fitness center. That combination is hard to come by in New York City.

Starting at $159 per night, this is definitely a deal with its landmark location.


If a trip involving hotels in New York City has seemed out of reach because it was too costly, think again. These hotels will fit into any budget-conscious traveler’s plans.
