Quaint apartment
"I chose this apartment because of its location and it had everything we needed, however I would recommend some local information be available on site. Also a few tips, such as when showering open a window as there is no bathroom fan. I liked the quaintness and the garden area."

"The hotel was super clean, and even though it’s in downtown where there’s more traffic the location is near a lot of things! The only downside was the underground parking. It was such a tight fit we ended up parking across the street in a parking lot."
