The issue i had was the cleaning. There was dust build up on the furniture which i had to wipe and the bed sheets had too many stains. I had to ask for clean sheets and put them on the bed. The staff was great.

Location is perfect- view is great... just was not a fan of how our room was kept. Bugs in the drawers, yuck on the bedskirt, dust on everything and the air unit looked gross/broken
