The price was right... but not for what you end up getting.
So, I know this is really a student residence but if you're also going to be a hotel you need to do a better job. I've stayed in residence at other universities as it's often the cheapest accommodation in a given city but I would gladly pay more for better digs.
My room had a funny smell that I could not identify. It was musty in the room itself and the bathroom alternated between smelling of sawdust and the plastic shower curtain (it was curiously pungent).
I saw a cockroach saunter across the bathroom floor like it owned the place. I mentioned this to a colleague also staying in the hotel and she said she'd seen several in her room as well. (I will be notifying staff upon check-out.)
The furniture was mismatched, the TV remote was broken, and there was no alarm clock so remember to pack your own. I didn't try out the continental breakfast on offer. There was a grocery store down the street and a mini-fridge in the room.
The drain in the shower also didn't really work. After a 15-minute shower there were six inches of water in the tub. When I left the room half an hour later there was still water in the tub. I let the front desk staff know and housekeeping took care of it.
Staff were friendly and helpful but unless you really need a cheap place to stay in this neighbourhood I would suggest finding another hotel.
