We stayed for 3 nights in March 2013 and had a really good time. The front desk staff was very helpful in finding parking and was friendly and polite.
Our room was not the newest room and seemed a little run-down, but since the hotel is not very expensive, that was more than reasonable. Everything was clean and well-maintained (and we liked that, at least on the 2nd floor, the housekeeping came around during noon so you could sleep in without worrying that your room wouldn't be cleaned at all). The heating worked very well (which is quite important in winter in Montreal). We didn't try the free breakfast, since it was served between 8 and 9 and we weren't up yet. Our room was out to the back side and it was very quiet, we slept very well in the comfortable bed.
The area does seem a little sketchy, but with this being my 2nd stay in Montreal, I almost feel that every downtown area has something sketchy to it. And the hotel staff makes sure to keep the front door locked, so we never saw any weird people in the actual hotel building. Other than that, it is very convienently located, with the old town only 10 minutes away, chinatown 5 and a metro station 5 minutes away and Rue St. Catherine 10 minutes away (all by foot).
Overall, I'd totally recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good hotel experience at a sensationally low price.
