The hotel is in a weird location. It is the only hotel there surrounded by apartments, gas station, some odd restaurants and businesses that tourists would likely not visit, fortunately, it is close enough to Coco Walk, roughly 1 mile by walking. If you don't feel comfortable walking in the neighborhood then you might as well drive and park in the residential area. The walk at night can be very dark and dogs do poop on the residential grass & sidewalk and dog owners don't pick-up after their dogs, so bring a flash light. The latter doesn't really reflect on the hotel but just be aware.
They do have free breakfast every morning which can be a plus to save money. I did not interact much with the staff so I would not know if they are friendly, it seemed like they were always doing something. There is free ample parking in the garage if the street level is full. People do smoke in front of the hotel entrance so beware for non-smokers, the smoker's "ash tray" is conveniently located by the entrance (I don't smoke so this bothered my a lot).
The room was up to par, clean & quiet hallways.
