This condo is lovely with nice furnishings, nice quality linens, and a well-equipped kitchen. It was clean and we appreciated an unexpected notification that we could have an early check-in. The unit has beautiful views, when you look beyond the busy interstate in the foreground (see next paragraph). I would echo the many other complimentary reviews all of which I read before booking unit 1504. We used the shuttle to downtown which was convenient. There is a trail head for the Gore River Trail just across a round-about, and we thoroughly enjoyed both biking and walking the trail. From the complex, there are sidewalks and an underpass making access to the trail simple. The management company was easy to work with and responded quickly to any specific questions I had.
Although I could have looked up the address of the complex on my own, I waited for VRBO/HA to send me the specific location and did not put it in on Google Maps until I had already booked the unit. This complex sits right on the frontage road that runs along I-70, thus the traffic noise is terrible. I am surprised no other reviewer has mentioned that information. In the winter, staying here would probably be fine, but I will not stay here in the summer again. It was warm enough that we had to have windows open (and appreciated the inclusion of fans in the unit). There was a constant roar of road noise day and night. Maybe one of the back units would not be so bad, but I can’t imagine there isn’t quite a bit of noise in those as well. This issue is the only reason I would not give this property five stars. One other downside of this unit is that there is no balcony, though given the noise level, I don’t suppose we would have used it much. Some of the units do have small balconies.
The unit itself merits a five star. The convenience of the location merits a five star. The noise level in this unit, however, probably should make it fall below the four stars I am giving it.
