Needs some electrical work done.

The room was okay for the most part. Not the nicest looking, but mostly clean. The location was good. My main complaint was that most of the electrical outlets not already in use by appliances (TV, fridge, microwave, etc) did not work. I'd left my phone plugged in to the charger for hours only to see its charge drop. I tried every single other available outlet and found only one that worked properly. This was super annoying. No one should have to hunt around the room trying to figure out which outlets work and which don't.

Horrible property. Should be taken down. Biggest waste of money. Couldn't even spend the night because of the uninvited creatures living in the room and the worst smell ever.
