It's a good 20 minute walk through several busy interchanges to even get to the Esplanade which is the main tourist area and practically the only part of the city with restaurants. The hotel is next door to an "adult entertainment" shop and a computer gaming place. So you can well imagine the types that hang around this area. The room was filled with some type of tiny brown bug that looked like a dust mite. Also the phone was covered in dust and didn't work. There is nowhere to eat lunch or dinner around this hotel - their restaurant does nothing other than happy hour drinks and a continental breakfast (no menu - you get the $14.95 breakfast or nothing at all). The only restaurant in the area is at an even cheaper hotel down an alley about 3 blocks from this place. As a solo female traveler there was no way I was doing that at night. I ended up at a gas station down the street getting a frozen meal for the microwave and then running for my life back to the hotel after being confronted by a bunch of drunks for money. One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at. Spend some extra money and get a place on the Esplanade, it's worth it.
