I stayed here for 5 days. There was a conference during the weekend and yes it was more affordable than the others because the regular 3+ stars were charging 300-600 per night or booked so this was the only option. Reviews said it was cheap, well I ended up paying 190 per night so no was not cheap. The room smelled and I complained several times, staff is nice but they never offered me another room or a discount just kept blaming the lady prior that stayed and stuck up the room, really? The walls had black marks on them, room was by the alley so about 6am every morning trash came through to pick up glass bottles (that was fun). Yes it's nice u get 25% discount at the diner downstairs but u can get better service and food at the diner around the corner, I found hair the first morning then just ignored it because it happens then the 2nd morning egg shells so didn't go back after that. By the way u need ur key to get in and out of the hotel all day! Which was annoying because most of the time there are beggars kind of just hanging out there so ur fumbling for your key while someone is approaching u for money. The decor was nice, staff was nice, location close to things, price not good, overall not worth $190 per night. There were so many other little hotels near by that aren't listed on the internet that u can stay at for a decent price and cleaner facility. Oh and if ur looking for a comfy bed and pillows, this is not the place. The bed and pillows were so hard!! So for an average 2 star hotel, they deserve 2 stars. A local motel 6 is cleaner and more comfortable.
