My husband and I stayed a week here while getting settled in a new city. It is not really comparable to ordinary hotels, but is a sort of hybrid between a hotel and SRO. (In fact, it is a long-term home for a number of single people.) Few amenities are provided; you bring your own dishes and do your own cleaning, or you purchase these services separately. Don't expect little shampoo bottles or tissue dispensers. What you do get is a small room with a double bed, a bathroom and a kitchenette with a big fridge, 2-burner stove and microwave. Storage space is meager, but minimalists can do fine here for a while. It worked fine for us, and it fills a real need for people in transition. By the time all the extra charges are added up it isn't cheap, compared with an unfurnished apartment, but also there's no lease, no utility accounts and no move-in fees. And the staff is helpful, in a casual way.
There's no lobby or common area, which I think would be useful to tenants. Since the building is located right off the freeway some areas can be noisy for those who like to open the windows. Quietest rooms are on the west side of the building and at the end away from the freeway.
