We were really happy with our 2brm 2 bath apartment. The bedrooms were spacious which is a nice bonus not to be walking into the walls all the time and the couch was actually comfortable to sit on!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights. On first entering the apartment we were greeted by an overwhelming smell of stale cigarette smoke.
