The room was reasonably clean, and the location was convenient. Housekeeping was poor and did not follow up when they said they would. They nickel-and-dime you for amenities within the room; it's like staying in a convenience store. For example, there's a minifridge in the room, but you can't use it for anything you get because it's pre-stocked and has sensors to detect if you move anything so that it can bill your card. Outside of the minifridge, for $5 you could get a container of Altoids or for another $5 you could get a "first aid kit" (2 bandaids and an aspirin). The internet was also hilariously slow at all tiers: $12/night for 1MB/s, $15/night for 3MB/s, and $20/night for 5MB/s. I have not used internet that slow since about 10 years ago. The internet was faster when I created a wifi hotspot using the 4G on my phone.
