The internet did not work on one day. I had to go in the basement where the tv room is to take my messages from work. The bottom of the shower curtain needs to be washed. It would be nice if there was a large sign telling all guests using the kitchen to be quiet between 10 and 7. My room was between the kitchen and the bathroom.
