Location was good, and there was no fuss. Also, no cockroaches. You kind of know what you're getting into.
The water pressure in the shower was a trickle. That's not an exaggeration. Don't plan to wash your hair. One of the towels had a stain I can only assume was blood. There were hairs in the sheets (I brought my own and would recommend doing the same). And parking is a surcharge, but I suppose I should have expected that.
