I can understand why some people would find the area a problem. We did see some "red light" type establishments in the area. However, when we arrived, at 11pm on a Saturday night, the area was quite quiet.
We arrived by car and got into the hotel's secure garage, so we weren't worried about safety.
The room was large and clean and air conditioned. It was perfect for our purposes.
We had the continental breakfast in the morning (nothing to write home about) and headed off.
We would stay here again for a similar visit.
