1/5 Terrible

Business traveler, Traveled with partner
Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities
Booked/confirmed through Expedia. No one was on site when we arrived. No communication, despite numerous emails and voicemails. Homeowner's association told us they had voted to cancel their rental program during the COVID crisis, but she did have keys for 3 other parties that reserved properties. We had to make other arrangements. Still have not been contacted by the property management company.
