    I loved it here! I would definitely go back and stay for longer! Everything was incredibly clean, and the staff is friendly! They have short termers and long termers which the long termers can be intimidating at first, but if you get out of your shell and go sit on the couch they are awesome people! Also, for how small the place is, it's very homey and quiet! Loved it here
