    Worst ever

    Landlord came in my room without knocking. My puppy barked, came out of bathroom and seen the door somewhat opened, checked and some guy started telling im not to have a puppy(was cleared when booking) he then tells me my puppy open the door. Called the owner and it was nothimg but lies. I let her know i was leaving the property and will not br staying for the remaining nights, didnt care and i think they do this on a regular basis... stay away unless you want invasion of privacy.

    I stayed in this unit over the weekend I had experienced an issue with a nest of flying ants in the master bedroom. I had my cat with me so the property manager messaged me and requested $90 which I sent but then when I messaged them explaining there was bugs they never messaged me back clearly they only care about money.

    Unfortunately, this stay was one of my worst stays. This is NOT a hotel, it's like a multi-plex unit with rooms that are used for stays. Walls are paper-thin. Pro: Check-in was smooth (door code). Room is basic - had microwave, mini-fridge, bottled water. Didn't look like pictures. I had an issue with clogged sink which was fixed same day by management and I appreciate that. Con: DURING COVID, I had neighbours that were loud and having a party. I called property management who said they will address this issue, but the noises didn't settle down until 2 am (I went and personally spoke to the renters). The second day I tried calling management about loud noise and couldn't reach anyone. During the day, starting early morning these was a lot of loud noise outside the room as well, affecting my sleep significantly. Walls are paper thin, so you can hear footsteps, shower etc in other units near by. Bedsheet had small damage to it. Towels were not very absorbent (if you care about that). What I found more disturbing is getting an email from management saying not to review if we were having a bad stay and to contact them directly (which I understand may affect rating) but this is why maybe there's less "bad reviews" online. Renters should be able to express honest reviews. I personally don't see myself stay her again, but I hope they improve, make it more sound-proof for future renters.

    Hotel.com staff not knowledgeable

    I had a confusion because of the hotels.com app not being very clear and the staff when I called hotels.com were not very knowledgeable about the place I was staying. So they created some confusion for me. Otherwise the apartment that I rented was excellent and very beautiful and clean.

    Great rental. Perfect location. Clean, thoughtful management. Check in instructions were prompt and straightforward. Appreciate that after long travel. Had an issue come up and the management looked after it promptly and was very quick in communications. I recommend it. Clean, safe, and comfortable. The price point can't be beat given that hotels in area at similar and even higher price point have cleanliness/bugs issues. Would stay again!

    Be careful when matching room booking to photos.

    Positive: Staff; Large tv; comfy chair; spacious shower. Negative: There are over 100 photos -- make sure the correct ones correspond to your actual room/suite; not soundproof; people don't obey laundry hours; bathroom sink clogged easily.

    Hello. Quite surprised at the room condition. No desk or work area. It was clean and fine for a place to put your head down but other than that it was not as usable as needed.
