They had parking
There was half a coffee machine, dirty pots, place looked grimy. No beverages, coffee etc provided.
No toilet paper in the bathroom
Reqests were responded to well and with good faith tho a request for the carpet to be vacuumed sermed to be forgotren.
Vety dowdy place. Hostel feeling. Unkempt with water damaged ceiling, pealing paint. $200 a night felt a bit rich for such s place.
The location rocks! It gave me great transportation options I didn't expect, but learned to love. I rode Bluebikes everywhere and walked plenty, besides taking the "T"!
Not much, really ! I love the simplicity and luckily I didn't have a car this time. I'm a cyclist.
Location was good, outside was like a quaint 1890's Victoria house with large trees. Relatively quiet and At least the sheets and bathroom were clean.
House was dirty and needs a total makeover Chip and Joanna where are you? Even this Old House..... somebody. We don't like to use The Shining, or Amenityville analogy but if the shoe fits...
