Look, it's an inexpensive hotel in Manhattan. There's a reason: it isn't fancy in any way. The beds are fine, the towels are fine, the staff was fine. The water pressure was lousy, but the water was hot. The building is noisy, but so is the ventilation, which masks almost everything when you're trying to sleep. It was clean when I arrived, but there was no cleaning done during my 4-night stay.
The subway is close and the buses are closer. Target and other stores are a couple blocks away. It's not an upscale area, so don't expect one.
