Very friendly atmosphere. Move in day went smoothly. Bathroom was not the cleanest, but was taken care of immediately. A couple corners high corners in the room had cob/dust webs. Dad brought his own sheets. They were not there when he moved in and we wanted to get room set. It was the weekend. Still, he's been there just a week and i'n sure it will all straighten out.
