Negative Reviews

Each apartment may be different from the next.

Some guests did not like the style of the apartment they booked and people should note that the apartments are individually owned. Some people said they found the bed linens and furniture to be outdated or in a style that was unappealing.

Self-service may not sit well with everyone.

It was also mentioned that some people did not like to have to take out their own garbage and change their own bed linens. Guests should note that some things on the property are self-service.

Wi-Fi woes.

There were limited remarks from people who were disappointed with having to pay a Wi-Fi fee in select apartments.
