    Ease of checking in was nice.

    One of the bathrooms on my floor during my stay didn't lock. My dorm mate revealed it had been broken all week. Window in my room couldn't close or open, because it was missing the spring and other parts. Only thing keeping the window secure was a metal piece and a prayer.
