We arrived on Friday afternoon with our 3 year old grandson in tow so my husband could go hiking on Mt. San Jacinto the next morning. In light of the comments that stated "walls are paper thin" we prepped our toddler to use a quiet voice so we would not disturb the other guests. He was great...it was the rude people on both sides who ruined it for us. On one side we had a drama queen in pain at 10:00 PM who called for an ambulance and then refused to go when the paramedics came. On the other side the tv was on until 3:00 AM. The drama queen woke up at 5:45 feeling great apparently because after a period of moaning and slapping our little guy said "What's she whining about?"
There was no microwave or air conditioner in our unit. The bathroom window, which was about 2 feet from drama queen's balcony, did not close. The sliding door and screen did not latch. The positives: very pleasant receptionist who guided us to a great community park and to the Nature Center. Room was clean. Breakfast was ok...scones are good, but not worth putting up with neighbors for.
We left Saturday after hiking and showering - didn't want to chance another annoying night. Will not go back.
