I've stayed here 4 or 5 times over about 10 years. Used to love it - basic, inexpensive, good location, pool which my kids loved. But it has just gone down hill too much. I didn't mind all the construction in front - that is the City not the hotel. But the rooms which are quiet in the back are DARK - one small window that opens onto the outside corrider. There were not enought lights in the room to do much of anything. We were there in August but it felt like December in our room, even with the curtain over the window open.
The lobby offers no relief - also just too basic and tired. It isn't even that good a deal anymore. Next time I'm paying more and staying elsewhere. Until this hotel is completely remodeled, I cannot recommend it. You can probably pay less at the Days Inn or whatever else is in the immediate area and it won't be any worse.
