Stink dirty rooms that smelt like old cigarettes found lots of rubbish in the drawers and drug untensils told the manager and she didn't care. Doctors are concerned that this place has not been shut down. Filthy and disgusting don't stay there at all.

I wont say don't stay there but PLEASE view your room before handing over any payment. My experience was so bad we did not stay - it was preferable to loose $265 for a night in something advertised as two bedroom unit... which was actually a unit with two rooms in which they had simply removed the lounge furniture from one of them and put in a bed. Even if it was a real two bedroom unit we wouldn't have stayed - the place should be condemned. We ended up paying similar money for a brand new spacious apartment in Newmarket with two perfect marble bathrooms etc. - no comparison.
