We used this hotel for a one-night stopover so that we were close to the airport for a departure the following day.
As we approached the location we were a little concerned as it's quite a seedy part of the city - the surrounding motels were typically advertising 'topless dancing' or 'adult movies' and we were worried what kind of place it was going to be. However, we didn't need to worry in that respect, the Times Hotel is very respectable clean and tidy.
The location is only about 5 or 10 minutes from the airport so great if you do need to fly the next day.
Presentation of the hotel was excellent, I think it was nearly new. The room was very comfortable, good quality linens. Modern funky look with a mix of Ikea furniture, polished concrete surfaces etc etc but it made for a refreshing change from the cheap patterned bedspreads, wallerpaper & curtains you find in most value chain motels.
The 'free' continental breakfast was OK, pretty basic but so long as you're good with toast or bagels you can eat in the morning.
Main critisism with the room was NO TEA & COFFEE MAKER. In a so called business hotel offering free wireless, free parking, pool, hot tub, gym etc etc but you can't make your own tea & coffee. It was OK for one night but would definately stop us staying in this hotel again and certainly for more than one night as it's such a basic necessity in this day & age.
Regarding the location, while it was grubby a few blocks along there was a new sports bar opposite and a large retail park / mall next door which had a couple of new restaurants in it. We had the feeling the area was improving with new shops, restaurants and facilities.
