3/5 Okay

Horribly overpriced, if convenient
I stayed here for one night while passing through. The space was relatively dirty: chipping paint, dark interiors, obviously very old furniture, etc. The shower was especially bad. Really just a high pressure hose of water that soaked the room no matter how carefully you set up the curtain. Wouldn’t stay again.
