    The rooms are very clean, the staff is super helpful, the events are fun and the overall atmosphere is pleasant. Some rooms are very open and bright other are quite claustrophobic. The laundry is there but you'll have to help yourself. No kitchen!

    I paid about $50 per night so I would imagine the $141 is for all 3 of you. Try adjusting you settings for 1 person to see what the cost is per person.
