Excellent4.0 / 5
1st room wasnt even finished
when we got our first room it was terrible. none of the lights worked, and the smell was just terrible and the beds were a mess, and lets talk about the floor, it looked like they tore it up and never replaced it. just bad. oh and the tv, broken in the closet. so called the front desk and they moved us and it was much better. The beds were made up and actually bigger. It didnt have a smell to it like the previous. it was just all around nicer. only things i would have liked were more towels (they dont have a maid service we only had 4 towels for 3 days) and a balcony. but after the room change it was great. just wish they didnt have so many hidden fees.

New Years Stay
The room, kitchen, and bathroom was overall clean. There was no onsite front desk people. If there were they were definitely hiding. The front desk was at another property. Check out time was at 10am (you have to use a code to get in and out of the room) it automatically locked us out at 9:45am while we were still getting our stuff out. It took 20 minutes to call around to figure out how we could unlock the door (hence I said no one is on property or at least no where to be found) finally got a hold of the front desk (which is at another property) they gave us a code and we got the rest of our thing. But it's not a bad condo to stay in. It was a very good price and very clean

Poor1.0 / 5
Awful experience - DON'T STAY HERE!
No one at the front desk for check in. None of the #s posted on the office door work. No security / no parking monitor, even though they charge extra for it. We paid an extra $10/night for a bay view; we got a view of the parking lot. Outdated appliances. Dishwasher almost caught fire. DVD player, telephone, and hair dryer don't work. Mold on the ceilings and under stove and dishwasher. Fridge leaks. Beds are broken and mattresses are swaybacked - feels like they haven't been changed out in several years. chipped and cracked furniture.

Fair2.0 / 5
We survived and thrived despite the inadequacies.
Shocked to discover that there is no towel or bedding exchange daily but we dealt with it by purchasing new towels which added a little extra expense. We were informed that we had use of the laundry on other floors than the one that we were staying on. The bedding was worn and had some damage so I was concerned about that on my departure. Also the heating/cooling thermostat went dark and the unit stopped working; thankfully, the weather was mild and we endured comfortably without the system. The toilet was very low to the ground, and the seat was either mal-adjusted or broken. All these things were reported to a parking attendant as the "office" was closed on our day of departure. The office was for the most part unattended and/or closed the entire stay except for several hours on a couple of days. I had to make several trips to "finalize" my registration. The fees charged were more that I was informed they would be by $55.00. Hotels.com representative promised to refund $30.00 to me but I have not received that yet. Would I repeat this stay again? No.
