Yes, its cheaper than the Ptarmigan. And, yes, that costs you something. For $150 I expected a lot more than just a decent bed. The place looks beat up. The ceilings are low. The rooms are a bit dank. There is no breakfast (vs. Ptarmigan). It does have some sketch-balls lurking in the parking lot.
It is fairly clean.
