"Pros: •24hr Access •lights in units •clean floor, walls, and ceiling •friendly management •slide lock doesn't stick •great location Cons: •costly •bathroom out of order(Speedway around the corner) •extreme caution when entering (not the facilities fault) Even though there are a few Cons, I still rate with 5 stars because you really do get what you pay for and I have no complaints with cost, there's a Speedway right around the corner if you have to use the restroom, and the entrance isn't really the facilities fault."
