We needed a place to stay on a below 60 night budget,which is nearly impossible and not have a dirty buggy room. We have stayed in the area many times and have actually passed by this hotel just because of the way and location it is in. However on this trip we needed something. We showed up at about 6pm to check in..which is thru a window. We asked to see the room before paying,which we were told they don't normaly do that,but I am persistant and believe before I give out money for a week I want to see what I'm getting. They agreed,I was totally suprised,it is dated,swag lighting,small tv with limited channels,but the room was clean,the carpet didn't look to old and was clean. The bathroom was also dated but clean,no mold on the curtain,or around the tub. The housekeepers for the dated building they have to deal with,I believe do a very good job. However bring your shampoo,body soap,hairdryer,alarm clock because other than a small round of soap the amenitys are sparse. I also bring these things just because no hotel ever gives you enough shampoo or bath soap and as far as a alarm every cell phone has one. The Beds are comfortable,there is a fridge with a small freezer part that keeps things nicely chilled,the only micro is located in the laundry/vending/ice area. Nights are quite and there is Mcdonalds right next door with a Dennys withing walking distance. The muni is right outside the parking lot. My overveiw of this hotel is, It isn't a Marriot but it also isn't a roach motel..for 53 a night you can get a clean room and a good nights sleep with the convience of being close to public transportation along with just about anything else you need. The downside the wifii you have to pay for, I paid for a month for 9.95 which was cheaper than by day or week..go figure, however you can use it anywhere there is a wifii hotspot,and the inroom phones need to be relined bad reception. I recommend this hotel for working or traveling people but as far as kids there isn't anything for them to do unless you take them offsite..Happy hoteling and good luck with your travels..hope this helps!
