“Noisey nights. Odd parking. Nice staff.”
We came here using our timeshare exchange. The first room we were assigned(606)had a balcony but smelled so bad of cigarette smoke, and the sofa was so awlful, we asked for a different room. The 2nd room we were assigned(503) smelled and looked better- no balcony;located above Kentucky Ave and the entrance to the parking garage. Sofa bed mattress was all springs. Our guests had to sleep on the sofa and loveseat, throwing sheets over the cushions. The blankets are made of some kind of foam. the room furnishings and decor are very dated but the room was clean. It was nice to be able to open the windows a crack because I could smell a faint trace of cigarrette residue. I could smell it on the drapes. We purchased fragranced candles and burned them nearly 24hrs a day for 2 days straight then, the smelled subsided. BUT THEN... someone in one of the rooms near us smoked each morning. the smoke smell would fill the corridor. Each time our door was opened the odor would seep into our room. This is why we had candles burning off and on most of the week. The location is nice except at nght the street got noisey with drunks and loud music coming from cars. Then there were the seagalls. Early every morning the seagalls would swarm down on the full trash can by the parking lot across the street and they'd make suck a racket, and mess, starting around 5:30- 5:45am. The Parking: what can I say. It's a challenge. A crazy challenge. Having to honk the horn each time to gain entrance into the garage is not only annoying, it's tacky. Really. They should have a better system. Then one night we went out to eat, came back and had no spot to park in. We parked across the street in the lot. We had to run around getting the info on what to do etc. Another time someone put a trash can in a spot to save it(they must have been from Philly). Sorry, it isn't legal in Philly and it doesn't work in N.J. either:) The pool is an oversized spa tub but was sufficient for us. Too much chlorine; they need to look into better pool management. I doubt that will happen since they won't even changed out the artwork. I'd label this place budget. It's not what the timeshare folks promise but, if you've owned a timeshare for any length of time you know the drill. Big on promises small on delivery. Bring a small fan for white noise so you can sleep. It helped us alot. Oh yeah, when the a/c went on in the unit next to us, it rattled our liv rm wall. Boy what a week we had. Yeah. But the cigarette smell is a huge turn off. Lots of goofy odors in this place. Can you say Fabreeze folks? Again, the staff was nice even if they didn't always understand what I was saying. This was our second visit at this resort. I don't believe we will visit again because of the odors. It's a shame.
The balcony railing separations are large enough for a small child to fit through so be careful if y...
