Unsafe,sketchy people {well for a run down un -kept place guess that's clientele. For 58 dollars a night???

Loved my room - very spacious & clean. The staff was very competent & eager to please. Great place to land. Excellent value. Right in the middle of oriental food row! Everything was so convenient, within walking distance. Wasn't noisy or crowded, & other occupants were friendly. I highly recommend this place...I would stay there again.
