We needed a place for 7 people to stay during the Rally to Restore Sanity. Basically, all we were looking for was a roof and a bathroom, and a hotel in which we could sneak several people into one room. Even with those standards, this place was pretty squalid. The "lobby" is really just a tiny entry way that requires the front desk to buzz you in, which is unsettling. It really feels like you're entering an apartment building in a really bad area. The wireless internet didn't work at all, and the building does have a smoky odor. The room didn't feel dirty, but was so dated and worn that no amount of cleaning would have made it feel good.
That being said, it was super cheap, and the lady at the front desk was quite perky. She sells cans of pop out of a mini-fridge she's got back behind the desk somewhere (I discovered this upon inquiring about vending machines.)
Since there's only one entryway that's tightly guarded, I don't recommend this place if you're looking to sneak in more people than you're allowed. We managed, but not without some nervous moments and suspicious glares from the front desk. It worked out fine for us as a place to crash and have a few drinks before setting out. Otherwise, it's a dump that I'd never bring a family to.
