  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

Great rental. Perfect location. Clean, thoughtful management. Check in instructions were prompt and straightforward. Appreciate that after long travel. Had an issue come up and the management looked after it promptly and was very quick in communications. I recommend it. Clean, safe, and comfortable. The price point can't be beat given that hotels in area at similar and even higher price point have cleanliness/bugs issues. Would stay again!

Hello. Quite surprised at the room condition. No desk or work area. It was clean and fine for a place to put your head down but other than that it was not as usable as needed.

The apartment was beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable. The apartment had everything we needed, lots of towels, iron and ironing board, kitchen utensils. There was a party in the unit below us Friday night, and in the unit 2 below us Saturday night ( that one went on until we left for the airport at 4 am) There are 3 units in the building. I did contact management about the Friday party. They contacted the people in the unit. I do believe it helped shut them down after midnight. Other than that there was no one to be present and tell them to shut it down. We were too tired to deal with the Saturday night party ( and it didn't affect us as much because it was further away). Only other thing. The parking should be designated, so you don't have people parked behind you when you want to leave for the airport. OnPoint was available and answered concerns, just seems like it's know as a party house. If there's no one present to make people follow the rules, it's just going to keep being a party house.
