Comminications were super pro and friendly. We needed a jail set on short notice and this one felt the most authentic and was exactly what we needed. Highly recommend this place. Its refreshing to be treated like a professional, as we are a production company and many others on these spaces get very short and or frustrated (probably from dealing with all types) and act like going over time wise isn’t something that can be easily worked out. If we’re there, we have the money and when things happen and more time is needed, it’s refreshing for that to be understood.
