We recently spent 4 nights at B&B Lodges. We booked the two bedroom/bathroom with kitchenette. We were 2 couples traveling together and this option gave us enough room for getting ready each day. We liked having the kitchenette. It was well appointed with cooking supplies and utensils. A quick trip down to the grocery store one block down and we... More

Just returned from a great week in New York . Great to be just a small way out of the main downtown area and only a ten minute walk from the quieter parts of Central Park . Very close to subway gives easy access to all areas of New York . Current exchange rates make NewYork very expensive for U.K.... More

This is the place to stay! Not a hotel. It's home away from home. Subway is literally one short block away. Grocery stores, restaurants, laundry/dry cleaners, everything at a stones throw away. The room we stayed in is the only room with a door that goes outside to an adorable fenced rooftop, with a small table & chairs. It's also... More

I almost gave up the idea of taking my 3 teenage sons to NY because of the hotel prices, but B&B changed my mind. This is a charming guest house. Prior e-mail communication with owners was excellent. The ground floor flat was perfect - 2 lovely bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, the all-important fridge and air-conditioning and the WiFi was outstanding -... More

We stayed here for a full week on our first trip to NYC. We were quite nervous coming from the UK not knowing what to expect, which wasn't helped by driving through Harlem on the way to the apartment. However I had done my research and knew NYC is very safe nowadays so wasn't worried. The apartment block is in... More

We've stayed at Bubba and Bean twice, once as a couple and once as a family. The hosts are wonderful, the accommodations are comfortable and the location is very handy being close to a subway stop. We will go back,

We stayed for nearly 2 weeks in 2014 and it was an excellent base to explore Manhattan from. The hosts were very friendly and really made an effort to make sure we enjoyed the stay. You can't beat the size of the rooms. There are 5 in our family and we all had plenty of room to move. Much better... More
