I've stayed at this location twice now, solely because I was able to book a room at a very good rate (approx $200 both times).
The location is very good. If you're not familiar with NYC, I'd say this hotel is kind of on the southwest fringe of times square. To be clear, you're not going to walk out the front door and into your performance of Wicked in 1 minute, but you're maybe 2 blocks from hitting times sqr. I saw a couple other reviewers suggest this hotel is on a sketchy block -- I'd disagree. There are 2 or 3 other chain hotels right there, and great hotels & bars just over on 9th & 10th. The block isn't loaded with restaurants & bars so it does feel a little desolate, but I don't think this area is any worse than other block in the neighborhood, which is to say -- it's fine.
The hotel itself was probably built within the last 5 years (I'm guessing). It's a no frills spot. No fancy lobby, no hotel bar. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. Rooms have a little kitchen which would make this really appealing if you're in town for multiple nights.
My only gripe is that the AC unit in my room was pretty loud.
