Not a fan.
There is absolutely NO free PARKING if any parking avail. That is not reported accutrately on the website. They only have 4 parking spots. It was the middle of heat wave and NO airflow through the building and we were in the attic and refused to open the attic window for airflow. Our bedroom was 98F. Owner told us to go cool off at the shore outside. Pillows were hard as rocks.
