Must value whimsy above modern convenience
The location is ideal for a visit to Brooklyn! It's close to the A/C train and a very pleasant walk to the Botanical Gardens and the Brooklyn Museum. Crown Heights is full of delicious places like Lula Bagels, Catfish, and Berg'n, and all of these--and more--are just steps away! The price is right too. Suite 9 was very spacious. My cousin and I both had our own sleeping area and enjoyed chilling out in the living room between adventures. We also appreciated the kitchen for snacks and drinks. The decor was whimsical and comfy; it felt very much like my first apartment in a quirky, shabby chic Victorian walk-up way. The staff was very friendly too.
Our room was definitely missing some lanterns--it was pretty dark. Also, the whole process of booking a room, communicating about arrival, even finding the office at 1185 Dean Street didn't exactly instill confidence that I hadn't made a tragic mistake. But my overall experience definitely exceeded my expectations. I would definitely return and recommend it to my friends who are cool with hostels, no promise of fast Wi-Fi, and general quirkiness.
I've stayed at TML before and found it a charming if cramped stay for a good value. Unfortunately, for my latest reservation, I was given the wrong code and was unable to gain entrance to my room. I called their emergency number and sent emails to their office. Waited with my 3 month old daughter on the front door step for an hour. No reply. No refund. Nothing.
It was a good value for the price- we stayed there mainly for location and didn't stay in the room much.
It was kind of cramped- especially the shower- and there were signs everywhere telling us not to touch things. The sheets and towels were clean, but I think the rest of the rooms could benefit from more cleaning.
