"It was good under the situation of Covid 19 (no amenities)."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
quiet thru the wall unit. Electric shades nice and dark (some wiring exposed) Liked the Keurig Coffee pot. The Roll in show needed some attention. (I did not request it nor did I need it.) Would have been nice, but I was concerned that water was going to get outside the rubber roll over water barrier. The shower curtain hung outside the barrier. there was no way to hang the shower head hands free and not continually spray the the curtain and it run down and outside the barrier. There was a floor drain over near the commode, but floor looked dead flat to me. Didn't think water would run to it. Shower head support shaft was loose.
