took it there last october

It's a pretty good place. It was kinda chilly, not cold, warm, or completely neutral.

There's about ~50 people in a room iirc. Each room is roughly equal to a regular university classroom for discussions designed for 24~30 people. But since those discussions designed to accommodate 24~30 spaciously, it's not adversely crowded. It is slightly crowded to the point that when you're not doing anything important you are aware that the person next to you is a bit annoyingly close but spacious enough that when during the test you forget. There are multiple rooms though, so only speaking of that specific one I was in. The different rooms are probably similar, at least not too different.

The environment is clean and there is a good amount of space. There are actual tables and distinct chairs. There's enough space that I didn't worry about running out of room.

Parking was validated, and the parking lot is right next to the entrance.

I used the restroom once before the test, I did not have a problem (male).

The proctors did NOT let you use the restroom between the check-in and the test - which is unnecessarily restricted imo. They yelled at a girl for checking in and then going into the restroom. They wanted everyone to check in and directly go to the assigned room without anything else. The proctors were casual - all black, males and females, appeared 20~35 (pretty young). Mine kept time and announced 5 min warning with a digital phone. They were pretty polite, I didn't have a problem. Other people had problems when they wanted to go to the restroom at some various points during the test.

I don't really get all the crazy precautions that LSAC takes at testing sites. As if bringing in a cheat sheet would do anything but slow you down and cause you to do worse than you otherwise would.
