At first sight you might have second thoughts about staying here, judging from the outside ruckus that you will see on the weekends. Once inside, you're in another dimension. This hotel is a nice, quaint, comfortable and clean place to sleep overnight or have an extended stay. If you are looking for expensive sheets, towels and luxury soaps, skip it. It is a no-frills place but very comfortable and most important, very clean.
Front desk and security guard in front are very pleasant and welcoming. Check in will be very smooth. The rooms itself are big - it has a living/dining area, kitchen, bedroom and bath. Only thing though - I wish they had a TV in the bedroom and not only in the living room.
Breakfast is not included but for around $6 you can enjoy a variety of "continental" fare. They do provide morning coffee and tea on the house.
Overall, I give it a 2 thumbs up!
