If you aren't the type to be scared away by a seedy-ish neighborhood (Harlem), this is a fantastic place to stay. Its literally about 50 feet from the subway line 6 and a bus stop.
The room we had (203) was very spacious, wooden floors and a huge closet, and it was spotlessly clean. The bed could have used a mattress pad as it was a little on the hard side, but the pillows were very nice. The common bathroom was also very modern and well equipped and very clean.
Bascially, if you are a younger and budget minded traveler this will be the place for you, but if you're on the older more cautious side then I'd suggest you find something in a different neighborhood. When you DO stay here, you MUST go down the street (116th) west about 5 blocks and eat at Amy Ruths chicken and waffles......one of the best places we ate in the city. :)
