Great stay!
I have only nice things to say about my stay at this hotel. Check in was easy, the room was very clean and it appeared like it was newly renovated. The staff at the front desk was very friendly. The location is close (2 blocks) to the subway. It was just what I needed at short notice and for a very very low price for the neighborhood.

My husband and I stayed here during our apartment search first for 5 days. We were so comfortable here that we decided to extend our reservation for 4 more days because we needed more time. We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone who is looking for clean, spacious and comfortable lodging.
