The building was built in the 80's and apparently nothing else was done to keep it up. The carpet has stains that are probably 20 years old and all the cabinets and doors need some oiling. All the kitchen appliances and utensils are of very poor quality, including the knives that really don't cut anything!
The beds are old and caved in the middle.
The gym has very little to offer and machines are also from the 80's (the ones that actually work). There are cables hanging everywhere making it a pretty depressing room.
I think the worst though is that it's located in front of the highway and the windows don't have double glass so it's really noisy plus, the shades are so old and out of shape that they don't really close properly and a lot of light comes in at night.
On the whole, if you are staying for a short period of time, it's a good place for the location but if you are staying for over a month, I would not pick this place.
