Upon arrival, I thought the place was just as nice as their website claimed. The lobby was spacious and clean, so at least those pictures were accurate. Then we went to our room. I instantly felt gross walking in. It had a musty smell, and it just felt dirty. The walls are a dingy cream color, so that made it even worse. The lights are quite dim, so that didn't help either. The sink at first glance looked filthy, but then I realized it was just the marble pattern. It looks like smeared poop. Not pretty. The shower and toilet area were surprisingly clean, but the floor tile was dark, so who knows what that was hiding.
When I opened the curtains, I realized quickly that the window will open plenty far enough for a small child to fall out of, so that should be changed ASAP. Another annoying factor was the air conditioning unit. I programmed it so that fan would stay on at all times, but it didn't. Just when the cool air was running. (I like the white noise, so this was quite a disturbance) When the air was running, it was nice and chilly, but as soon as the air kicked off, the room got too warm.
My daughter enjoyed the pool, but she was the only one. They have so much chlorine in the water, that just walking into the pool area my husband and my eyes started burning and watering. The pool is MUCH smaller than the pictures make you believe. The pool was also surprisingly clean, but with all that chlorine it should be.
The breakfast buffet wasn't bad. Not much of a variety of food, but what they did have was tasty. They ran out of sugar by the coffee both mornings, and when I went to use the packets upstairs with the coffee machine in my room, I noticed the creamer packets (from the package that contained sugar, creamer, a napkin, and stirrer) had already been removed. I guess the next tennant will find out if the package is missing sugar now.
All in all, we will never stay here again, unless we hear a major renovation happened - in EVERY room.
