If you love the strong smell of Bleach and Pall Malls, then this may be the place for you. I stayed for 2 hours and had to leave, the bathroom, the smallest i've ever seen, and quite moldy, despite the reeking smell of bleach everywhere, no cross ventilation in the room except to have the door open which wafted the smells of the owners chain smoking, they said cooking would be ok but the stove was broken and they offered up a toy sized electric skillet to be put outside for the cooking option. The location was in a small stuffy neighborhood and a streetlight which was on 24/7 dominated the view out the window. we paid for the week and was only refunded 1/2 the money when we realized we couldn't stand to stay there.
