A quirky reservations process - fax or email only, 3 months in advance, on the 15th - but apparently it works, as reservations filled up QUICK!
Stayed here for a week in September 2011: Two twin beds, shared bath. Rooms were basic, dated, but CLEAN! There is a restroom with toilet/sink in each room, and bath towels are provided. "Shared bath" means just that - only the bathtub/shower is shared. Again, these were dated, but clean. Ours were right next door. There were a total of 2 shower-capable bathrooms and 1 bathtub-only bathroom on our floor. Understand that they are trying to do renovations - upgrading so that each room has an ensuite bathroom.
Housekeeping does a good job. Front desk staff were always friendly, courteous, and helpful. There was no curfew that we experienced. The front desk was always manned, even at 2 or later in the morning, and would buzz you in. A security measure. Breakfast (not included) was alright but the bacon was never crispy.
Location was fine for our purposes - Close to the subway, couple of laundromats and Rite-Aid/CVS nearby. Never tried the restaurants in the vicinity but they looked alright. Neighborhood seemed safe.
Clientele seemed to skew toward the middle-age and up crowd.
To note: There's only 1 key per room - an actual key with a tag that you drop off in the drop box at the front desk every time you leave the hotel, and ask for by room number (and name if they don't recognize you) every time you come back. They don't take American Express.
I'm giving them an "Average" rating for now due to the state of the accommodations, but I'm confident it would improve once their renovations are completed!
