We actually stayed on 2 occasions, hotel was clean, front desk staff helpful at all times of the day and night. At breakfast on our first morning there was a gentleman there that I thought had wandered in off the street, his appearance was disheveled, as though he had slept in the clothes he was wearing and he was watching everything that was going on. Turns out he works there, he was in the dining room every morning. The rest of the staff was dressed professionally.
Rooms were rather small for an extended stay, they had the frig and microwave but no place to actually sit down and eat. Clean and housekeeping was great. We left a note for an issue in the room that concerned us and they took care of it, leaving a note in response.
Though the neighborhood looks rough, my daughters and I went out for several walks and never encountered anything unpleasant or unexpected. Felt safe at all times.
The front doors were locked at 11P every night and we had to be buzzed in. As I would expect this at any hotel.
