This is a classic older property and the owner does not want to spend the money to renovate it. Instead, the owner seems content using cleaning supplies to mask the odor in order to make it seem like a great, clean facility. This place is a few steps up from a slum hotel. The property is dated and in need of some TLC. However, the staff are nice and accommodating.
