My budget is below US$100 in downtown area and this is one of the limited choices (another is Westmark Hotel). It takes 10 mins walk to downtown (say the 5th Avenue Mall). At night, the neighbourhood is quiet and I was a bit afraid when walking alone back at 8pm.
Room is a suite, very spacious. Room is clean with nice decor and bed super comfy. I slept for 14 hours at one of my 2-night stay. It has a kitchen but was empty without any plates, utensils or cutleries for preparing meals. They are pleased to provide if I had asked though. Hair dryer and safe didn't work, seems disconnected to electricity. I believe they are pleased to get them fixed if I had raised it though. I just told upon check-out as that didn't trouble me much.
The staff are friendly nice and helpful, though they lack of flyers or materials on hand for ignorant tourist like me. They called up and helped booking local tours for me.
From airport, I booked the Captain Cook shuttle bus at US$10 at the concierge and took 10 mins to arrive at this hotel. Some may not know the location until I told it's next to Ramada Hotel.
Overall, with the price and space, it's a sound choice.
