4,8 Mediocre
Pros:The price was what attracted me to this facility. The drive through check in was convenient.

Cons:The cleanliness was lacking, and I have pretty low standards. The shower had a noticing ring. The bedding, linens and shower curtain looked as if someone who has just finished replacing a car engine slept in the bed , then showered. And none of this was cleaned after.
