First off, I would definitely stay here again because above everything else, the hotel was quiet, clean, and comfortable and the price was very reasonable. I have no complaints about the room or the facility, other than maybe the typical "low pressure shower" complaint that seems to be a given for every hotel these days.
The only reservation I'd have about booking the place is that it is in a rather depressed part of town -- shuttered businesses and hotels abound, making it appear more sketchy than it really is. We were there for two nights and experienced zero issues regarding the area, so I don't really think it's a big deal, but when you roll into the neighborhood, it'll be the first thing you notice. We never felt unsafe.
