ok for the price
I askes for a non smokimg room and it was very obvious the room had been smoked in. Once we got the ac going and I sprayed lysol it was not too bad. The inside of the bathroom door had mildew on it. There was a plastic bag stuck in a hole or covering something in the ceiling which was really weird!
