Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The manager said it was newly renovated. I think they forgot a few things. The room was very spacious but there was no bar in the front closet (or door) so nothing could be hung up. It had a fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker and nice counter space. No sink though. You had to get your water from the bathroom. The bathroom door also could not be opened the whole way. It hit the sink. Otherwise, it was acceptable.
