    I did not have a good experience here. They wouldn't pick me up, the lady owner didn't say hello or even look at me, the temp who checked me in wasn't trained, gave me no info on activities, I was put in a single that felt like a foreigners' quarantine, enhanced when I was ushered into a rarely-used kitchen (judging from the dust, mold, spiders, lack of materials) to eat. I felt so awful that I cancelled my second night (but was charged for it). The male owner was nice later, but I wanted to go.
