Spotlessly clean, with a well equipped kitchen. My friends and I attended college at SIU, so a great location for walking to old haunts and the campus. There are three bedrooms, and it was fun to all be in one location, rather than separate hotel rooms. The shower was spacious, good water pressure, and nice and hot.
The house is positioned very near the street, and we could hear a lot of traffic noise during the night. Also, the wi-fi was spotty. If you really need to be online, you will probably be dissatisfied. The furnishings were old, but clean and well-kept.
I did think the price was a bit high, compared to other vacation rentals.
