Found it rundown and dumpy, it stunk in the room, you could not regulate the water temp in the shower, the shower head came to about upper chest height, the air conditioner was so loud you could not have a conversation. The outlet in the bed room was loose and half out of the wall to the point where we wondered if it could start a fire, the night table light kept flickering. I had to change the sheets on the pull out bed as the ones on there had something on them and the clean sheets were left on a table beside the pull out. The photo on the website did not match what you see when you pull up. I found this way over priced for what you get. Horrible experience. Glad to check out.
Air conditioner old and noise
Cute room setup and nice amount of room, clean
Maid service the third night pulled the comforter up over the bed and wadded the sheet and threw it on a chair and left clean towels. No coffee left, coffeemaker not changed.
Rooms were clean. Kitchenette if stating for longer.
Rates were a little high. Beds werent the comfiest.
Location and fridge in room
No ice available that I could findand no chair in room
