This was a decent room for the price. We were there for a week and the fridge dryer and microwave all broke. Our fridge also had a rancid smell the third night and we were told to try and call someone in the morning. Facility was nice balcony was great! Would stay again

The room (1 bed apartment) was roomy and spacious. A deck (overlooking the court house hotel roof) was large and with the bifold glass doors open it created a large open area. The bed was comfortable although there was no caster stops, so the whole bed rolled anywhere when you sit on it. Room had a good size (2 people... More

We arrived and was made welcome, the $200 security was a bit of a suprise as we booked through an agent and this was not explained to us, limited us to what we could use.
