I saw this "mosque shaped" hotel for years and years, and figured it was a landmark and therefore expensive. It turned out NOT to be expensive, to be clean and comfortable, with over-sized rooms with plenty of space, microwave and small fridge--a good place to dig in affordably for a couple weeks, which is what I needed. It's a bit down at the heels, but clean and comfortable. I was there just before Halloween, and one night there was a big party in the next room (and spilling out onto the balcony)--despite a sign in the office saying "No Parties". When I felt it had gone on and never quieted down, I called the manager, and he settled them down--for an hour. It built up again, and I called him again, and he went tot he room and made them stop--threatening a call to the police. So I thought he handled it well. Internet is great at the front of the building, but definitely not reliable at the back--so if being on line is important to you, ask for a room at the front. Very nice family runs the place, makes you feel welcome. I plan to stay there next year when I go back to California.
