Oh dear lets start with the positives..... Had a reasonably short flight in and was pleased I was able to walk from the terminal to my hotel (about 10minute walk from customs at the most), so if you are looking for something close to the airport then you really can't beat it.
Facilities were clean. I arrived at 11:30pm and wanted a beer and a quick snack and was pleased to learn the room service was available until 5am. I ordered the soy duck dish and a beer. The duck was probably the oldest duck in China, judging by how tough the meat was, however I was able to wash it down with the luke warm beer that arrived. However, after a 10 minute argument with the waiter who brought my meal I finally convinced him to walk to the other end of the floors I was on (same as the hotel bar) to get me some ice and a glass to drink my beer in...
Check inn was simply a joke. Receptionist number 3048 would have to be the rudest hotel staff member i have encountered in a long time, and throwing my room key across the counter demonstrated her complete lack of interest in customer service. However, the poor guest checking in next to me didn't have better luck, the person checking him in was just as bad and looking at all the staff they were sitting there yawning, sleeping on the counter and generally mimicking an episode of faulty towers... Quite comical actually.
In summary, if you NEED to stay near the hotel (as I did unfortunately), then you will not have to worry about safety, and the rooms are clean. Just take a deep breath when you walk in the front doors and try and ignore the absolute rudeness of the staff and you will be fine! For the USD80 I was charged, compared to other hotels in Shanghai, facility wise it was fine. As mentioned earlier, I can't recall staying in a hotel with such bad service so hard to compare.
