Liked: Nice clean rooms, very friendly staff.

Disliked: It was very loud. Other guests were talking loudly in the hallway at all hours of the night. The door to the stairwell was across from my room, every time it closed my bed would literally shake, which continued throughout the night. I didn't get much sleep, the room was nice and clean but the noise was too much.

Liked: I liked that this property had a gym attached to it, the twin room I stayed in was spacious. Very glad the beds had electric blankets.

Disliked: The location is pretty terrible in terms of nightlife and just everything else really... I am sure it would have been a great spot before the earthquake.
