The property looks run down from the outside and is very outdated, but the room was nice and updated. New furniture, carpet bathroom and beds. The heating system was not very good so if you go in the winter time, best of luck. The bathroom should have been a little bigger. Internet service was horrible and TV channel selections was not good.

Other than the room being somewhat on the small side, it was very nice. Comfy beds and pillows and upgraded.
