I arrived at 2 pm; no one was in the office. Waited for 15-20 minutes and rang the bell they had, called, walked around the property to look for receptionist but never found anyone so left. Did NOT stay so would like REFUND. I paid insurance. Place did not look well kept and clean. Obviously not well managed. Dianne ishida
