I can't find one good thing to say about this place. The entry way is cramped, dark and depressing...And that's the good news. We thought we knew what we were getting into. Didn't expect any luggage help or anything fancy. The stairs to the room are very steep and claustrophobic. The Memories room, is a dump. Grimy, flaking walls, grimy bathroom mats. Coffin sized shower. Limp, dank bedding. No closet room due to a rollaway bed in closet. No blinds on windows to stop the street light glaring in all night. Or any privacy. Due to a transom above the door that is open this isn't a "couples" friendly place. I'm not sure why they stress they are military. There was nothing "ship shape or squared away" about this place. I don't think anyone in a supervisory capacity has been up those stairs in a good while. The "stairs to the garden area" are steep and rotting, the "alley" is almost blocked by a crumbling fence and watch out for the nails. The back area could have been nice at one time but is overgrown, moldy, weedy. The house view at the back is of crumbling doors and steps. Wait, to be fair there is a nice table and chairs. But watch for the deadly caterpillars. Warned of anaphylactic shock. Not conducive to relaxing. To show how bad it is we stayed one night and walked away from $800.00 that we couldn't really afford.
How many places require a signed waiver before you arrive and after you arrive? Does that tell you something? Be careful.
