With a 16 night stay, you do get the feel for a place. Check in is at 3-00pm and as I arrived early, they had no problem taking my bags for a couple of hours first. I have stayed in a few Best Westerns with varying degrees of satisfaction, rarely exceeding expectations. This one is typical, the room itself is clean, but in need of rejuvenation. The bed is large and comfy, however.
The bathroom is rather small, but functional; quite clean, if a little dated with an old shower unit.
A complimentary self service continental breakfast is available, which is slightly limited, but it is free! The bagels are particularly nice. A really good attribute of this hotel is the wifi. It is also free and high speed. Very good Skype calls were possible most of the time which was important for me as I was visiting from the UK and needed to speak to family. Bizarrely, they do charge for use of the room safe. At time of writing, $1-50 each night. You also have to carry the key around with you and there is a $35 replacement charge. Clearly, a digital locking system would be better.
There is a bar downstairs, but no restaurant apart from the breakfast area itself. I did try to drink in the bar twice and on each occasion, it had shut early, which was a pity.
Also near plenty of shops, restaurants and the subway, it is conveniently located nevertheless.
