This is a 60s era building. An attempt has been made to polish it up. While clean and recently painted, it's still showing its age. Location is central but a couple of blocks away from the heart of town.
Our room on the second floor was utilitarian to the max. No closet, so all the usual gadgets - iron, ironing board, etc were just heaped in a corner under a coat rack. Room had a fridge, microwave, dvd player etc which was great but all this was just piled on one side of the room - hugely cluttered. Additional power outlets had been installed by running an industrial grade electrical conduit into the room. Downright ugly. Bed was OK but not great, bathroom was spacious and clean.
Major issue was the window and ventilation. I am overlooking the lack of AC - it's Alaska - but there is a good part of the year where you may need cool air. Our room was on the second floor and the window had a ledge outside that led downwards - easy to climb up. There was a stick in the window to wedge it shut but basically there was no security possible once you opened the window even a crack. Room looked out onto the outdoor bar. Loud music which was turned down fairly early, but no privacy if the window was open - room had heavy drapes but no sheers.
If you did open the window, the area is next to a busy highway and noise was considerable.
Bottom line - this place may be OK in winter, and it's livable if you arrive late and don't have options.....but I would try hard to avoid it if I had the flexibility to shop around.
