Average room. Average cleanliness. Not bad, but not great. Many transients in the area.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
So the problem is not the hotel or staff, but the surroundings. A homeless man emerged from the shadows by the office to harass me (& the clerk) at check-in & did not stop for hours, following me to my room, standing in the parking lot challenging me to run him over, hitting my car, banging on my room door & threatening me bodily. Once when he was following me outside, trying to corner me against the wall, I tried to get into the office for safety, but it had been locked to keep him out & nobody would answer my frantic knocking - totally understandably, but terrifyingly, like a really bad nightmare. Otherwise staff was supportive & called both security & the police, with me hiding in my room’s locked bathroom in the meantime, also placing a 911 call. The security guard arrived well before APD (of course) & deserves a medal for safely escorting me to my car so that I could leave & never ever come back. It’s really sad how bad the Central & Tramway area has become & it’s not this hotel’s fault. Given the circumstances, however, & the state of the APD, a security guard should be on duty every night - instead of on call - for guests’ safety. Lighting at night outside the rooms/hall could be improved as well.

Expectations not high for a budget room but surprising you initial your liability for $150 room cleaning if you smoke and the room still smells. Not horrible but definitely noticeable.
