Good for short stay
Generally ok, except for carpet which needs to be cleaned up or newly replaced.

Tries to be more than they are
Window AC not sensitive, so either hot or cold--also smelled like mildew!! They claim to be "green" but, despite my towels hanging up, they were replaced daily. The TV would shut off every hour and reset to the default, VERY loud volume and a different channel than where I had been. Given the cost in the area, it was "reasonable" price but not worth what was paid--but no good options. More like a Motel 6--next door!
