Reviewed 27 August 2014

1) the bath tub backed up on the first shower which means the cleaning people, if it was cleaned after the last people, did not report it
2) the toilet backed up the last day
3) the back door into the building from the parking lot was not secured although it had a key card receptacle which means the whole complex was not protected from intruders
4) one elevator was out of commission for a time
5) there was not an availability of fresh towels, though we kept ours for two days, the third day we had to wait for the laundry to finish after noon
6) advertised as updated rooms, however, I think that was done years ago
7) mold in the bathtub calking; shower spray ran down the front side of the tub to the floor, required bath mat to be placed there to avoid a puddle
8) didn't 'feel clean'
9) early morning voices and laughing, may be because we were facing where the pool is and trash/outside storage
10) strong smell in the hallway when entering building, was some type of air freshener that was overpowering and repulsive
11) room lighting terrible, no lighting in entry, no overhead lights
12) staff was nice, pleasant
