Please be aware as photos are misleading. Particularly apt 4 is not representative of what is advertised here. The room is run down and bug infested particularly the restroom has hole in ceiling. Refrigerator dated and dirty. My flight came in late and arrived in a nightmare situation where I had pay this room a month in advance and was basing on advertise photos and other reviews. This specific room is not what was advertised. I wouldn’t recommend

Crappy old converted apartment building in a beautiful waterfron t location. Crap furnishings, crap bed and linens, no tv, no ironing board, takes 5-10 minutes to get lukewarm water. Smells like clorox and cleaning fluids. Sit in the waterfront seating and enjoy the view, because you wont want to be in crappy room.
