If you are thinking of staying here, think again. After staying here for a month I left early (was suppose to stay for the summer as a hotel guest). The only good thing about the place is the internet speed. From the strange stains that will not come out, to the faulty toilets that they refuse to do anything about except just get poor art students working part time to unclog them multiple times per week. The water pressure is horrible and to take a decent shower is next to impossible, the water dribbles out it's like taking a sponge bath. The beds are uncomfortable and of questionable hygiene. There are mystery stains on just about everything and when asking the manager about it they will say usually students are "too drunk" to notice these things.
The customer service is HORRIBLE they treat you like they don't need you and they say if you are unhappy to "join the crowd", they don't care.
They have no worries about lying to you, telling you one thing then doing another. IE: Not returning deposits, then when they see your room is spotless and even better then when you moved in, they STILL give you a hard time about the deposit and will mail it to you. *I am not even expecting it back* that's how bad this place is. When I was there they had multiple checks for bed bugs, which they found. Granted they would not tell you they found bed bugs, but when you see them replacing and throwing out HUGE amounts of mattresses right after a dog comes through smelling for bed bugs, it dosen't take a college student to add things up.
Take my advice, don't walk, RUN away from this place. The rules they operate under are self imposed, so they are not even governed by normal consumer laws like a hotel would be and they take advantage of this.
Also as I type this end of June 2012 they just started construction on a new residence (because they just threw in the towel on the current residence). So that means NO parking even remotely close to the place and construction noise. Which I am sure they are not going to tell people about before they move in. Soon as they closed the parking lot across the street from the building, the other parking lot is a fair walk and the parking lot gets full with traffic from the college. So finding a parking spot that is within a 5 minute walk to the place is next to impossible.
If you are thinking to stay here as a hotel guest, don't, you have been warned. Probably the worst place I have ever stayed in my life and I have travled the world staying in hostels in the middle of South America. There is a reason the only people living here really have no choice, because anyone with a choice would not be here.
Also I would like to add from my Google+ review, that this IS NOT a family environment. Students are walking in the halls in their underwear, swearing and just being..well college students in the summer. I noticed they said this is a great "family" environment in there ad, this is a total joke.
