nice little place

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice little place for a small family, I found it to be a little larger than the average hotel room. For the price you can't beat it, looking for large and fancy then you will have to pay a lot lot more somewhere else. Looking for quaint quiet and inexpensive than this is a wonderful place. We had absolutely no problems while we were here. We did run into a small glitch when it came to after the trip, it took far longer than I would of anticipated to hear anything about the security deposit. Other than that it was a great trip.

Unclean, small and uncomfortable

  • 2 of 5

ill start with the good: the price was decent, the owner was friendly, and the location is awesome.

The bad: it's all one room, smaller than the average hotel, it's in bad need of a remodel, there was dirt in every crevasse of the floor, there was hair in the shower, the place smelled of mildew, the metal appliances were covered in rust, the comforter was blood stained, the mattress was old and sucked you into the middle, the towels were rust stained, and the couch was old and uncomfortable. When we contacted the owner about the uncleanliness he sent a cleaning crew over, one of whom got an attitude stating that they weren't going to clean the bathroom and made the excuse that they only get the linens that the owner gives them. They took the comforter and didn't return till the next day so we had no blanket the first night, they returned with new towels but the blanket was still blood stained but smelled clean.

Owner's Response: The cleaning crew that cleaned the condo is a husband and wife team. Husband tells me that his wife was startled by the dog that you bought with you which may have caused her to be defensive toward your demands. Clearly stated in our listing and in rental agreement, dog is not allowed. The cleaning crew did come back to your room to clean the bathroom and shower again. Once we conversed on the phone several times where I realized you were not happy with our condo and I offered to refund all money to you without any penalty if you desire to leave. Since you wanted few hours to think about this, I gave that time to you. Since you decided to stay and wanted the cleaning crew to clean again, they did that. There was another comforter and bedspread in the closet which could have been used by you. No pet is allowed in our condo, but we let you keep yours there after you told me that it was a "service dog." Per the Federal laws that address handicap and service dogs, I did not have to do that since our condo is not "a place of public accomodation" according to the definition of the laws. After check out, when our cleaning crew looked over the place, our condo was not in good orderly state. Trash was left everywhere, new blood stains were on the sheets, and rules were not followed as to the state that the condo is to be left. Even with those violations, we only deducted $60 off the $200 security deposit. We refunded you $140. We believe this may have caused your bad review.

Mediocre Stay

  • 3 of 5

Our experience started off on the wrong by having issues checking in due to the owner stating that he had no idea someone was staying in his studio. Once I spoke with him he made me send a picture of the confirmation email that he had sent to me. The first thing noticed entering the room was the smell. It was a old/cigarette smell. The kitchen was very outdated and in need of an update. Good price on room.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your candid review. It was my fault that I failed to realize you booked our condo. I started a new job working 11+ hours per day 7 days per week. I have not had a day off in 23 days. It is still no excuse for not knowing about your reservation. I started keeping better notes on reservations. I am in process of investigating smell mentioned in your review.
