The good: Nice quiet neighborhood, a welcome respite from traveling and staying and chain hotels, decent price for a week, the small suite provided adequate room, although it was a room, not a suite. Outfitted with full kitchen counter, microwave and refrigerator although we did not really use that. Bed was comfortable, but pillows...not so much. I enjoyed the week, although probably would not go back.
The bad: carpet looked like it had not been cleaned in a long time, stains on the carpet, covers for the heating baseboards were falling off, peeling paint in the bathroom, under the sink cabinet had not been cleaned in a long time, one light in the ceiling was out, no internet, window air conditioner could not really keep up with the heat.
The ugly: We were given two keys on arrival. They keys are the old fashioned kind with the plastic fob that has the name of the hotel/apartment, room number and phone on it. The same key let us into the building and into our room. There was only one lock on the room and no chain lock. We had one of the keys stolen. I called the desk clerk and asked to have the lock chained. He said probably no one would use the key. i agree although, if someone did use it, the consequences could be severe. After several minutes of disagreeing with me, he said he would send maintenance out to change the lock within an hour. No one ever came. The next morning, the desk clerk told my wife they had no intention of changing the lock unless I made a nuisance of myself. In short, the clerk lied to me. Security is very poor. I could have easily made a copy of my key and go back the next week and gain entrance when someone else had rented it.
