I stayed here for 4 nights in early May 2012, and the room was nice, clean, and the place has friendly staff. The overnight guy was a little grumpy when he had to let me in (I had to catch a very early flight), but other than that it was good. Nothing too fancy, but the room was clean and aside from the outside noise on Saturday night it was quiet.
The location is pretty nice, close walking distance or a short cab ride to lots of shops, restaurants, and bars. There is also a grocery store close, and the convention center is a short walk away, so it is a good place to stay when in town for a conference.
On Saturday night, the noise outside gets a bit loud with all the drunks walking around, but close the window and all is good.
Wifi did not work in my room and there was a separate charge, but it got refunded since I did not use it. If it works, it is pretty cheap, but free would be better.
