We stayed at the Casa Blanca in Unit 301, and while the location was quite ideal, the unit was horrible. It was not 60's retro - it WAS the 60's, right down to the pink and white marble look formica to the silver lamee wallpaper in the kitchen. There was peeling wallpaper throughout the unit. The carpet was disgusting and should have been replaced with tile 20 years ago. Although the bedroom was quite large, the bed was quite small. The bedding and pillows stunk!!!! There was not even one extra pillow case to put over the pillows. It was disgusting to get into the bed. Even though there were many extra pillows, not a one had a pillow case on it. It was just as disgusting when sitting on the furniture. Had to use a blanket to try to avoid the smell of furniture that had been used by hundreds of people and never cleaned. Not sure even febreeze could have helped. Most, if not all, of the furniture looked like it was purchased in the 60's. The bathrooms were in desparate need of updating. The whole unit needs to be gutted and redone. Although we would consider Casa Blanca again, we would NEVER stay in this unit again and would not recommend this unit to anyone.
