Property badly needs renovation, or at a minimum, adequate maintenance. Pool furniture is broken and dirty, bathroom sink had no cold water, shower faucet barely worked, carpet ripped and dirty, no service given during our 2-night stay.

It needs a major update. Bed was very soft and the pillows were too fat with no alternative available. There was a strong odour in the room.

Liked that property was close to our event at Ace Hotel. Did not like the very high price for two nights. Did not like that wallpaper was peeling, coffee maker did not work, ice machine did not work, few electrical outlets, outdated furniture. We had to pay a deposit even though they took credit card. Young woman at front desk was nice and helpful.

Friendly & helpful staff made check-in easy. A crazy price for the quality of the room. The maintenance of the property is okay. The room was dark and the position of the lights for the two beds did not make sense if someone wanted to turn off a light while someone else kept theirs on, no USB ports, needed fresh paint on the concrete (!) floors. Walls are thin so you hear everything inside and out. I was also concerned about the lock on the door. Didn't have a deadbolt, hard to tell how locked it was. Didn't use any of the indicated amenities.

The property has some wonderful parts to it. We loved the pool, hot tub, and grassy area. It is a bit dated but quite clean and decently maintained.
