This is definitely a good deal, given the location and the amenities. Room was small (we were, unfortunately, in the room right next to the linen closet facing the neighboring building) and threadbare but comfortable. It's an old building, so sound DOES carry far. Easily walked to meet family for dinner, parking was close, if not super convenient, and $22/night. Neighborhood seemed safe and walkable. Free breakfast was fine- cereal, hardboiled eggs, pastries, coffee.
Only serious beef was that the morning we left we had no hot water (let run 10+ minutes). Calls to the front desk resulted in promises that the boilers were working, which.. is fine, except it was 4 degrees outside and I would have liked a shower. 20 minutes later the hot water mysteriously recovered.
Take home: I would stay again, but request a room away from the elevators (which are next to the housekeeping and linen facilities).
