Very Good
Sep 26, 2023
I only stayed here one night and the staff were accommodating and helpful. It has very large living areas and is close to the lake! But you do have to make the entire bed yourself including duvet covers, which was difficult to do after the lights were off. It is a very large facility that feels more like a hotel than a social space to gather and get to know people, but it was clean and well organized.
