    Decent location.

    Actually cleaning the room. Shower stall needs replacing, not multiple coats of paint.

    Seedy

    The staff did their best with the poor facilities.

    This is not a place for mothers and young children. Rooms were not clean until after check-in time, common bathroom looked like the homeless lived in it, ceiling tiles were missing, the door latch was on it's last legs and looked like one good kick could easily break open the door, there were no comforters in the room, the heating system was broken (they had space heaters available), the shower looked moldy, and the toilet in our room leaked a substantial amount all over the floor (when I told the front desk, she apologized and said she'd send someone right up, but I got the sense there was no budget for facility repairs and this was just a line she was forced to repeat). The continental breakfast provided shelf-stable calories from refined carbohydrates (toast, muffins, sugary cereal) but no fresh fruit or eggs.

    Clean, but oh so tired

    Price. Desk made effort to get us parking space.

    Sketchy neighborhood. Limited parking. Shabby interior. Dump outside window. Freight train tracks 20 feet away; trains pass every hour blowing horns. Room walls torn up. Tiny thorny thistles all over carpet. Shower door wouldn't stay shut.
