Check-in was promising, and I was looking forward to the room, until I opened the door. It was an inside room, like on a cruise ship. No windows, just four walls and some glass cubes they put on the wall with curtains around them. Nice try. It was a claustrophobic fire hazard, and I immediately asked for a different room, but they were fully booked so we were stuck with the death trap utility closet. Luckily they were able to re-accomodate us the next day in a room with a window. It seemed like it was falling apart a bit - the phone didn't work, the toilet wasn't functioning quite right. But it was clean, the bed was comfy, and the staff did their best to make our stay as pleasant as possible, especially Raquel.
If you're looking for a clean, basic room, stay in one of their window rooms. If they can't get you into one of those, stay at a Holiday Inn Express.
