I obtained a decent rate on Priceline for two nights in March 2013.
We were in town for an event and this facility was a five minute drive.
For what we needed, a bed and a shower close to the event, this was adequate.
The neighborhood is rather scary.
I've seen worse but there were plenty of reasons to stay off the streets as much as possible.
It's a sad testament to how socialism has ruined so many once-desirable cities in the northeast.
This was obviously a grand town at one time but is now populated by typical inner-city type dregs and thugs in the downtown area near the hotel.
There were plenty of these types hanging around the hotel also which called for vigilance in the hallways and elevators.
The staff was so so and we avoided all unnecessary contact with them.
The quality of the facility was typical two-star and what was expected.
The room wasn't serviced until way after 3:00 PM which made for some dismay on our part.
The one bright spot was the restaurant next door.
Based on the dreary and dangerous look of the area we weren't interested in traveling for dinner so we walked the 30 feet to the Asian buffet next door and it was great!
It had all the usual buffet fare but the best part was they would prepare fresh dishes on a hibachi and the quality was exceptional.
Would I recommend the hotel?
Only if you have to and only if you can get a very good discount on the rate.
