4/10 Fair

The sinks are blocked. The rooms can be very smelly.

8/10 Very good

Good place to stay
A staff member told me to wait to check in when there were others checking in at that time. It would be nice if there were privacy curtains on each bed. Security was very good using the key card for entrance and lockers. Public transportation is a few blocks away and there are many small eating places.
