8/10 Very good

not bad!
it was pretty decent. the air con was very slow though. but overall had everything you needed. theonly thing i didn't like was how there was no elevators, so you had to drag your luggage up the two flights of stairs. but overall was not too bad, good location, and free parking. wifi was stellar.

2/10 Poor

My child found broken glass in the carpet in our room. Showers were cold and had no hot water. Heard banging from other doors all night which we couldn't sleep. Shared bathrooms were disgusting and not maintained. Heater in room was broken. $279 a night for what felt like a jail cell. Would not recommend for any family
