Close to downtown

Before booking this hotel we read all the reviews, but decided to take the chance anyways because the deal was pretty good. We checked in about 9pm on a weekday. There was not a lot of cars so there was ample parking. The area is more industrial looking so no tourist stuff. Front doors were locked and we were buzzed in by the night staff. The night staff was very friendly. She was cheerful and pleasant. We unloaded everything from the car because we've read that there was a lot of break-ins. The room was very large. We booked a king suite, so there was 2 bathrooms and a separate bedroom. At first glance the room looked very clean, but then we noticed the stains on the carpet, razor blade under the air conditioning unit, and large water-bug running around. Husband killed the bug and we simply left the razor blade alone. Bathrooms were clean enough, but it was old. Bed was clean and comfortable. Walls were thick because we didn't hear anything. Our window was facing the freeway, so we can hear cars honking their horns. The microwave was missing a foot so it wobbled when used. When we woke the next morning, my husband went downstairs to check on our car. Our was car was fine, but our neighbor wasn't too lucky. His moving truck was broken into and everything was taken. So, I guess the reviews about break-ins were accurate. However, overall we didn't have any major problems while staying there and would most likely stay there again, if needed.
