Joy, 3-night trip

4/10 Fair

Property is very rundown. We stayed in the standard studio cabin, and every aspect of everything was just.. rundown. All mattresses cracked all around. Pillow so frail it was literally falling apart inside the pillow case. Handles falling off of kitchen cupboards. Frying pan all bent, could not stand still, and way too thin. I guess bathroom was ok, no complaints. There was no hot (or even warm) water in the kitchen sink. There were ants in kids beds, and after the service person left, the bed still had pieces of biscuits under the mattress although I pointed those out. The mattress cover was literally filthy, covered in some dirt all over, I had to ask to replace it.

For a Superior studio unit I was expecting a kitchen sink at least, and the bed didnt look like a queen, but overall, we enjoyed our visit. The staff were very friendly
