The hotel was generally clean and well lit, but not much to brag about otherwise. On general notes, the bed was moderate to poor and the furniture was definately dated. But it is clean and in a good location.
On a particular note, I do not recall my room number, but the hotel is shaped like a U, and I got a room in the northwest corner. This room is actually in a "covered alley" and therefor is has almost no natural light. The only window that got light was on an exterior wall and was both high up and small, and facing an appartment building and tree cover. It was depressing to be in it, so I stayed out as late as possible before returning for bed.
Staff was friendly, though not particularly helpful.
