      The maintenance staff was polite. They knocked on my door to check if someone was home. I appreciated the curtsy. I unfortunately cannot comment on current community because I have not lived here long enough to say.

              Great price in a very safe neighborhood. Solid building and room (nothing fancy, somewhat old, but certainly clean and nice). Very close to downtown and relevant sites. Utilities included, which is fantastic. No dishwasher or laundry in the room, but overall I'd recommend!

                Overall good. Just that the building does not have AC/heater regulators in rooms and parking facility. The management is nice. Budget friendly apartment. Also, kitchen sink is small if you want to cook and no storage in restrooms.
