The Maya Hotel is a small pleasant hotel about 5-10 minutes walk from the West Gate of the Taj Mahal. With clean rooms, reliable hot water, and TV and AC in the room, it made for a pleasant stay while visiting the sights of Agra. There's even a little rooftop restaurant which does a decent breakfast (no views of the Taj Mahal though), and the staff were polite and helpful.
I would echo the comments of another reviewer regarding the pickup from the station - nice to have (as there are a crowd of touts when the trains arrive all vying for your rupees), but alongside the auto-rickshaw driver was someone who en-route to the hotel did an aggressive hard-sell on being my "guide" around the Taj Mahal and Agra the next day. Despite repeated refusals he said he would turn up at the hotel at 7am the next morning - whether he did or not I don't know as I was out at 6.30 to see the Taj at sunrise (awesome experience by the way)...
Apart from the hassle with the tout/guide, no other problems with the hotel and so definitely recommended if you're willing to pay a bit more for something a bit cleaner and nicer than the real budget end of the market.
