6/10 Good

This place is none too new. The elevator is slow, the carpets are sticky, the doors have very makeshift repairs. The street noise is titanic (it's 10 lanes of traffic right outside the thin window). The neighborhood is somehow broken down and too touristy at the same time, and leads to some sad sections of beach. But, everything worked, the bed was comfortable, and it's really cheap for that area, so one must take the price point into consideration.
