Not Fabulous.
Nick the manager was very nice. Room was clean but very simple. Hardly any furniture. We booked it as the reviews said fabulous, it was not fabulous at all. Clean and simple.

This spot was a diamond in the rough! It was incredibly clean, very quiet, comfortable, cost effective, had great (free) parking, and was perfectly located. The staff was very friendly, accommodating, and genuine. We will seek out this spot next time for sure!
