I was doing a workshop 2 doors down from the Emerald Iguana, so it was the perfect location. there were many amenities and features about the suite i was staying in (the leaf room), like a fridge, a gas-range. comfortable furniture. it was extremely quiet most of the time, though the 9:30 pm quiet time was not enforced at all and some noisy evening pool party was not very welcomed.There does not seem to be any staff present after 6 pm. This presented a problem for me, requiring that i stop at the Blue Iguana on my way into to town to check in. it made it absolutely imperative that i rent a car so if my flight was late (which it was) i would have to stop there to check in first. it would have been nice if they could have ran my card a head of time and simply told me where they hid the key (which is all they did). this was extremely irritating to me. the fridge made a lot of noise and would give off a big bang every now and then. the other thing that was not great is that the deadbolt was nearly impossible to turn, so most of the time i only locked the door knob. the flimsy doors made me wonder about the security of the place but i made do. I loved that the cleaning staff did my dishes for me!
