While the location of this hotel is good, close to subway and lots of different fast-foodish options, it has some gaping faults that detract from the experience of any traveller (for business or pleasure).
The hotel is dreary and dingy and desperately needs an update, the hallways smell like dirty and old hotel hallways..maybe the carpets are musty. There is no bar of restaurant of any kind: if you arrive later at night, you are skipping dinner or you have to venture out into the neighborhood (not the best, but I will get to that). Breakfast is a sad affair: no eggs or other hot items, just cereal, bread and bagels with a toaster and plastic plates/cups/utensils. Sad.
A scary looking guy tried to sell me drugs on the corner near the hotel. This makes me think that the neighborhood is not so nice, or bordering on sketchy. Would not walk around alone at night, as a woman.
The good points that save the experience from being a total failure? The staff is very kind and helpful, and the maid service does a great jobkeeping the dingy rooms clean.
There must be something better at this price!
