Low cost - good location w/ easy parking

The room was recently renovated and exceeded expectations, but don't expect a cozy lobby or any amenities. Location is good and price is almost half the hotels accross the street. As expected amenities were spartan at best (breakfast was poor and not a lot of immediate options in the area & fitness equipment was dated and not working.) A good easy option if you need to stay downtown and price is a major consideration.

Good location but........................

Stayed there Mon, Tue, Wed. for a convention. Not a nice part of town. Constantly pestered by minorities asking for a handout while walking to and from 4th Street. Little police presence. The room was OK for what I paid but certainly nothing special. Very weak WIFI signal. Unlike a real hotel with multiple walls, the single wall motel construction allowed traffic noise during the day and siren noise in all night. The room were very clean but the parking lot, sidewalks and stair cases were filthy with dirt, old wads of chewing gum and other grime. The breakfast had the standard OJ, apple juice dispensor and the several day old pastries which seems to be the norm in most discount motels. Next year I will make reservations earlier and stay at the Marriot. The extra cost will be worth a good night's sleep.

This hotel's location could not be better. It is a few blocks' walk from essentially any restaurant/nightlife you could think of. The room was appropriately appointed for the price, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
