First, do NOT book room 521, it is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, overlooking the mountains. The room itself was very nice, clean, and I thought we found a great place. And then night time came. There was a strict guideline given to everyone letting us know that quiet hours are from 11:00pm to 8:00am. Well, the unit directly above 521, we found out, is privately owned, and the owners allow their teenagers to "use" their property for parties, which started around 11:30 pm and lasted until early morning. These kids were drinking, smoking, cussing loudly and making so much noise that sleep was impossible. I alerted secerity, who scolded them, and they moved the whole party inside (instead of both the porch and inside), where it sounded to us that there was a stampede of cattle above us. When I talked to management the next morning, they were sympathetic, but offered no comps or discounts for what we paid. They did alert the owners, and the next night, the noise was down a bit, but they were still partying at all hours and knocking around. Being sleep deprived made the days hard to manage, and we had to oversleep to even get a few hours in. Oviously the rules only apply to guests and not owners, and our quiet get-away was ruined. There were only 4 of us renting a 3 bedroom to make sure we would have a nice quiet place. I feel like management could do more to insure that guests and owners alike are required to follow the rules.
