Embarrassing and awful. Second hand store would not sell the "furniture". The entire place needs to be gutted. There isn't anything redeeming about this place. Nothing has been painted fixed or maintained.

When my husband went to turn our UHAUL truck around, none of the sullen looking young men hanging out in the parking lot made any effort to move, so he had to make a three point turn....
