Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property is not as described by the pictures posted. Dirty carpet, stained mattresses (I have pictures) No Covid measures in place, it is not clean. If you have health issues don't book! The reviews state how great it is but, I am not sure how the property has so MANY good reviews hmmmm.

Bed and pull out was old and uncomfortable. Wifi was minimal. Door was a challenge to lock. No toilet paper or paper towel or hand soap. Fortunately I brought my own. Expected a bit more for the money.
