This place was great to stay in until we found our new home. However, if you end up staying a while, just know that some of the staff are not the friendliest. One of the female receptionist was very unfriendly, and rude and ALWAYS smelled heavily of smoke, considering this place was smoke free facility. I think her name was Carol.
The manager is very nice, the amenities are really worth it, free laundry,guest lounge with TV couch, books and stuff that was nice and comfy, banquets room, board room for meeting, and a VERY clean swimming pool which was nice.
It's a bit pricey if you staying less than 7 days but its cheaper if you stay longer. As a platinum member I thought they would give you the check in specials, but eh do NOTHING special for Priority club member, which kind of sucks. It would make it more friendly.
I would recommend it for family, since it is kid friendly, and very safe area, close to everything, and plus hospital across the street incase emergencies.
Over all this place is recommended.
