    Rooms needs renovation

    Loved the lobby design and the staff were very friendly but the bed in the room was very squeaky, the paint on the bathroom ceiling was peeling off, there was no waterproof liner on the shower curtain and there were 2 thermostats in the room which which was confusing

    Staff and location were great. Very helpful. We received an email saying we had a free drink and 2 hour extended checkout on our last day. The drink was a nice gesture but they only extended our checkout til 12:30. The doors to enter the building were blackened with handmarks. Our room was missed for cleaning one night. Behind the chair in the bedroom the dust and dirt on the floor showed it hadn’t been properly vacuumed perhaps ever. The pool was murky and had a notice it was closed for the first 3 of our 5 days. When we enquired about access the management said the new chemicals would need til the next day. The next day the pool did not look clear and we never used it. Never saw anyone else use it either.

    This place has so much potential but they really blew it. The service is fine, as all the employees I encountered were very friendly. However, the cleanliness is very poor. So much wear and tear everywhere. It seems like they are renovating but based on other reviews it looks like they have been doing this for a while. On one day of our trip the power went out. They clearly had no back up for hot water because there was no hot water the entire day even though the power was only out in the morning. The courtyard looks cute in the pics, but it also contains the trash which makes it smell awful. The common areas and doors are filthy and need Windexed. I’m very disappointed because this place could be so cute if they just cleaned it and kept up with wear and tear.

    The staff was fantastic. Bed, pool, shower, and water damage were not fantastic. We also had a huge cockroach in the shower.
