If you need to be close to downtown but don't want to be in downtown and pay the downtown prices and you don't care about anything but a clean bed, this would be ok. This place is right on the freeway so there is extreme freeway noise although not too bad in the room. The area does not feel very safe--there is a bulletproof window by the desk clerk if that is a clue. The "breakfast" is a joke in a space maybe 8' x 8' with no seating--it has toast and waffles and cereal but it really feels cheap. The staff other than the desk clerk were very polite and helpful. The free wi fi was very good. Otherwise, definitely a "no frills" hotel.
