HORRIBLE PLACE TO STAY! HUGE LACK OF COMMUNICATION! There were so many wrong things with this hotel. Staff and management was extremely rude and unprofessional. Rooms are NOT as the pictures advertise. Pool hours are until 8:30 pm. You have to EXCHANGE room towels for new ones. They will not give you extras. We were given 2 bath towels in a room that sleeps 4. Staff refused to give more towels. After each time in the pool we had to exchange towels at the front desk to be able to shower. There is no convenient way to get to the lobby from the pool. You have to walk around the entire building and go in the front entrance. There are no signs anywhere indicating this. The pool by our building had the gates locked well before 8pm. There was no sign indicating it was closed and the staff did not inform us that it was either. It looked fully functioning (pool and hot tub full of water). Once leaving our building to go out to that pool, there was no way to get back into our building through the back door. We had to walk through mulch and between bushes to get back out to the sidewalk along the front and part of the side of the building. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING and UNNECESSARY! Cabinets from the 80s, appliances probably from the 60s... Microwave was outdated to the point of having dials to turn for temperature and for time. Tv did not work and was never fixed. The bed was not a Queen as advertised- only a double or a full. The sheets were excessively wrinkled and felt plasticky. Bathroom had excessive water damage on cabinets and had black mold growing. Entire room smelled like mildew. AC was broken (80 and humid in room) and took a long time to be fixed. The elevators sounded and felt like they were going to break. I would NOT feel safe taking a child in them and did not feel safe in them myself. Both elevators did break our last day causing us to have to haul our luggage down multiple flights of stairs. One of the elevator certifications was EXPIRED. So much could have been fixed with signage or communication with guests, but even when this was brought to the attention of staff and management they were rude and dismissive of any kind of feedback. We would have rather slept on the street than stayed at this place if we would have been able to get our money back. Read less

Travel nurses beware!! We are renting an AirBnB for 8 weeks and already have huge regrets about this place, it is not at all as advertised. There is no playground, it was torn down.

Travel nurses beware!! We are renting an AirBnB for 8 weeks and already have huge regrets about this place, it is not at all as advertised. There is no playground, it was torn down. There is no way to cook besides a microwave, they provide a plug in plate warmer and call it a stove. The garbage disposal does not work and all the drains smell like sewerage when you or a neighbor uses water. To top it all off, there are no mailboxes for long term tenants and the office charges $5 PER package and piece of of mail before they will hand your own mail to you!! Absolutely ridiculous for long term tenants!! We are here for travel nursing because of the Covid crisis, I have a young baby who cannot be vaccinated, and I do not have a car here so ordering online is my only option while here and charging $5 per piece of mail is so wrong!! The WiFi is extremely patchy so I cannot work from home or stream TV for more than 30 seconds at a time. The management is completely unavailable and front desk staff extremely rude. The front desk employee named Elisha is unprofessional and refuses to help guests, she would not provide a phone number for me to voice my complaints and resolve issues. My suggestion to improve guest satisfaction is to allow long term tenants to sign a waiver releasing them from responsibility of mail so that we are not charged $5 for our own mail. I have not been able to get in touch with management here because they make themselves unavailable. In reference to another guest’s review about the elevators being unsafe, yes they probably are unsafe because the elevator permit they have posted inside is actually expired. Avoid this place!

This place has an awesome location so therefore I rate it 1star, but the air bnb I rented was not properly managed building 3, room 3904. First issue: The individual stated the pictures was taken by a professional and slightly enhanced and was uploaded to the website and it was completely not like it was presented online once we checked in . Second issue: We only had 1 set of towels, we asked if and how would we retrieve a new fresh set, they provide 1 set every 7 days or normally we charge for replenishing fresh towels during the stay. Third issue: The master bedroom had a vacuum cleaner that was full of dirt from previously beijg cleaning and was never cleaned out. The smell was like an old basement musty smell. The couch had multiple stains and was not suitable to sit on. The carpet throughout the entire place was dingy, dirty and had a stench odor Final straw: The entrie building was experiencing maintenance from 930-3pm with no Air conditioning and limited use of water, we asked how can we be compensated, the host stated that they would buy us lunch or comp one night. Not sure what kind of lunch but a family of 4 could be a good price, but not for the inconvenience we experienced. Closing: The building is in much need of repairs, pull the carpet, paint wallpaper or whatever to truly enhance this property. Once again, I've stayed many places and this had been my worst experience. Read less
