Positive Reviews

Handy refrigerator supplies.

The refrigerator, which most hotels generally fill with soda and alcohol, is instead full of standard meal ingredients such as bread and cheese. This is perfect if you're looking to simply check in and eat without worrying about trekking across town for groceries or a restaurant.

Dutiful cleaning.

The cleaning staff does an excellent job of keeping the suites and shared outdoor areas as spotless as possible. Any issues that you report to the front desk will be promptly handled, although in most cases, the maintenance team is proactive in seeking out potential flaws.

Charming atmosphere.

The warm colour patterns and playful decor within the suites is sure to put you at ease from the time you initially check in. The grounds surrounding the main living area are similarly inviting, and you'll quickly fall in love with the property's sense of serenity.

Negative Reviews

Disconnected room layouts.

Although the suites are spacious enough to let you feel mobile and comfortable, there are few shared areas for larger parties to congregate. Even if you book one of the larger room packages, you're not guaranteed to have a living room area with ample seating.

Insufficient parking space.

Considering the amount of guests checking into this property, there should be an expanded lot or secondary spaces available on-site. Many guests experienced issues with finding a parking spot or being boxed in by fellow drivers due to cramped conditions.

Wi-Fi is unreliable.

The Wi-Fi signal tends to fluctuate wildly based on where you are, and doesn't work especially well in the suite areas. If you rely on these networks for work or demanding tasks such as downloading media, you may be forced to resort to a wired connection.
