Pros: Love that this hotel was an adult friendly hotel with an amazing adult concept. There are no shower curtains and a huge soaking tub for two. The hotel is like a mini townhouse studio because you have your own personal garage with garage door (ours didn't close though) and a personal staircase that leads up to your room. We were blown away by the room as there was a huge soaker tub on one side of the staircase with a nice lounging chair and the bed and huge stand up shower was on the other side of the staircase. I sent pics to friends and family and they were all blown away.
Cons: SMOKEY ROOM!!! The service is subpar. They could not locate my reservation when I arrived and I had to provide the email confirmation I received from my booking website. Each time you want to leave the premises, you have to wait until the front desk person buzzes you out of the gate. If they are not available or stepped away, you'll be waiting there for a while. IT'S TRUE... THERE AREN'T ANY BLANKETS -- JUST SHEETS. We thought this was a joke but there was no blanket in our room and we were freezing at night. I am glad I brought a small throw blanket to keep us semi warm. We had to request an additional wash cloth because they only provided one for a room for two. The bed sheet was not big enough to cover the mattress so the sides of the bed were exposed and the mattress was not very clean. Also, the bedskirt was stained (see picture). The closet shelf was also broken. Last, the check out process is horrible. The front desk clerk told us to pull our car around to the back gate (single lane so we would be blocking others that wanted to leave) and wait until housekeeping checked the room to make sure we didn't use any of the mini-bar or damage anything. Once they got the go ahead from housekeeping, the front desk attendant let us out of the gate. They do not put a deposit or hold on your credit card when you rent a room.
Overall: Great cost ($70 a night) for a very cool stay. Never been to a hotel like this and I can appreciate the kid-free atmosphere. We loved the hotel but would like to see some improvements before we return.
