My husband and I stayed in this hotel in early May 2013. We saw that it had very mixed reviews, but were just going to be in town for a few nights and wanted something in this general area, and didn't want to spend a lot. We did get a room with a private bath. The hotel was older, but it was clean. The manager was very friendly and helpful. As many of the reviews stated, he gave us three rooms to choose from. We chose a room located on the same floor and in close proximity to the office. For that reason, we did hear some noise in the evenings as people came and went, but it usually quieted down by 10:30.
The location of the hotel was fantastic. Apparently just several months ago they closed the street off in front of the hotel to vehicle traffic and made it a pedestrian walk area, so that cut down on car noise. There is a bagel-deli right across the street and a street vendor cart that we got meals from, Madison Park is only a couple blocks away, as is the subway station.
For price and location, it was great. There are no elevators, through, so if you have a problem with stairs, take that into account. I had forgotten in earlier reviews it mentioned that they do not provide washclothes, just towels (and plenty of those). It's nothing fancy, but we were out early in the morning and didn't usually get back until late at night, so didn't miss having a TV. Does have free wifi. Will stay there again.
