I got a room on hotwire for 48$ per night. After i found out the name of the hotel and went to see the reviews i got scared! Turns out it was nothing to worry about: the lobby is nice, but the rooms are very basic, yet clean and functional. Rooms has somewhat ugly furniture but has been renovated somewhat recently (5 years perhaps?), bathroom was even newer and clean. My guess is that this used to be a really good hotel that didn't break even so they just repurposed it as a cheap hotel until they figure out what to do with it.
I've read all sorts of stuff in the reviews: people feeling unsafe in the parking lot at night (what? this is a very nice professional-medical area. nothing interesting walking distance, but looks fairly safe to me. this person probably saw a brown dude for the first time and got scared), moldy carpets (my room had fake linoleum, the corridors had carpets which were in good condition), basic breakfast (what do you expect, you're paying 50$ per night! the following night i went to a 120$ per night hotel and they gave me no breakfast), AC difficult to control (it has a thermostat + hi/mid/lo control, this person must not be very clever), drug deals in the lobby (whaaaaaat? the lobby is the best part of the hotel and is very quiet, full of old nice people and young people watching netflix on the free wifi).
Not worth 4 stars, but I have to somehow balance out the people who gave the place 1 star because they paid 50$ per night and did not get a plasma TV. Only thing i did miss even for a 50$ hotel is the wifi, which is only in the lobby (hotwire does not differentiate between room wifi and lobby wifi).
