SB gem conveniently located in town
In SB for our son's Wedding November 2022. Our apartment was well appointed and spacious. Housekeeping was happy not to clean daily, and complied with our request for clean towels or supplies, front desk pleasant and knowledgeable, property very clean and well organized with on site restaurant and lovely pool. Some noise from the guest upstairs rolling suitcases on tiled floor, and toilets should be updated to water miser quiet models, carpets need to be replaced with low nap synthetics easy to steam and quick dry so they are always appear clean. But overall a great place to stay in SB!

A great stay
We stayed here once before & had an ok experience. This time was much improved- we were given a more updated room & the desk staff was very friendly & accommodating. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean & quiet. We really love the location because it is close to our family that we were visiting
