Location is great but never saw anyone in the office. Sign on door said to go next door to the Cavalier office to check in. Room was acceptable but ceiling fan/light kept going off after it got warm and then wouldn’t come back on. Outlets in room need replaced, all very loose( plugs fell out to easily) ...
