These are simple rooms- think Best Western in the US- but they have wood floors (and if you've seen the carpets in many Chinese hotels you are jumping for joy), hot showers with good water pressure, clean western bathrooms and English speaking staff. They often have rooms with one large bed (also hard to find in China) the beds are western style and comfortable. They are well lit and kept in 'new' condition. Overall a very solid hotel that I'd give 3 points in the US but close to 5 in China, expecially when you are in the sticks.
This location is somewhat poor, but a tax is going to cost you less than $2 anywhere in the city, so no real worries about that. There is a wonderful muslim night restaurant down the street past the college ($5 simple delicious dinner for two) as well as a (Sichuan? style) chinese place called the something Family Restaurant ($15 for two with beer).
Xining is the gateway to Tibet, and in the summer it is nightmarishly crowded. You need to have accomidations before you get there, and this hotel or a hostel may be your only options. Definately the cleanest hotel I stayed in in Xining by far. Also, the only night in China I actually had a full/queen sized bed.
The rooms are "ikeaesque' decorated and reminded me of a dorm room, in a good way.
