We picked this motel because of the price and location to the trolley station. We knew it was a low budget hotel, but planned to do so much sight seeing that we only needed somewhere to sleep at the end of the day.
The hotel was located under about 4 highways/roads and also bordered the train tracks. I was worried that we wouldn't be able to sleep well, but at night it got much quieter except for our neighbors antics.
Unbeknownst to us our neighbor was a recovering drug addict that stayed up late at night. First night was okay, but second night she got in a fight with her boyfriend over $40 and she called the cops on him. The boyfriend had left by the time to cops arrived, but we got to listen to her tell her life story and embellish her boyfriends misdeeds to cops for about an hour. The next night she spent on her phone yelling at her boyfriend and then of course he finally returned to her place so they could continue to argue the final night we were there. Why didn't we leave, well we only had one day left before returning home.
The second problem was the carpet smelled like wet dog. I bought a bottle of Fabreeze and used about 3/4 of it to fix the problem. Other smaller problems is that the shower wouldn't turn off all the way (but maintence did fix the next day), we only recieved 2 new clean towels each day, there was no alarm clock in the room and the streets around the area were poorly lit.
I just imagined I was visiting another country and it helped me get by. Only stay here if you really need a place. Other than that it is worth it to spend $50 more to stay somewhere a little quieter and safer.
After reading some of the other comments I will be sure to check and make sure that our credit cards are properly charged.
