The room wasn’t ready at check in. The staff is not on site so if there are issues - TV, Internet, etc you’re on your own.

It was like my own little getaway in a new apartment. I only wish I had more time to extend my stay or enjoy a late checkout option. I felt comfortable and secure my entire visit.
