    Good location, needs a thorough cleaning

    The property is nice, secure, and in a great location. The problem was with the cleanliness of the apartment. The bathroom floors were so dirty that my feet were muddy when I got in the shower. The walls were dirty, there were child-sized handprints on the refrigerator and windows. The dishwasher was full of dishes and it smelled as if it hadn't been run or was run a long time ago. The couch had some stains on the cushions. The bedside lights flickered and were useless. Basically, they need to hire a professional cleaning crew to clean the room from top to bottom. We requested a new room but it was a holiday weekend and so none were available. Another thing to note is the tubs are high side, soaker tubs. My mother, 78, was unable to get into the tub to shower. If I had known that, I would have requested an accessible room.

    Overall, the location and space was very nice. I would have liked it to be a bit cleaner and the flat sheet and bath towels were still in the dryer when I arrived. Aside from that, the space worked well for work travel and having an actual kitchen, laundry and living area made my stay far more comfortable than in a hotel room.

    Dorm room meets hospital room

    **BEWARE** Similar to what another reviewer mentioned, this was not the right fit for me (more suited to a single college student or budget traveler). Felt misled as the sleeping area is SUPER small, slightly bigger than the bathroom, and not at all what is represented in the pictures with living room and kitchenette pics -- I'm sure it is partially my fault as those rooms are probably available to book, and I opted for the best price. Pros and cons (for me cons outweigh the pros): I'll start with the pros: Great location Good free parking Huge HD flat screen TV with Netflix/Streaming apps Good air con Cons: Very small sleeping room, felt like a dorm sleeping area Bed is right next to front door Bathroom similar to hospital bathroom with chair and handrails Nowhere to place shampoo and toiletries in shower Not super clean Stains on our comforter No desk, chair or sitting area Limited space for clothes Front door is five feet from busy parking spot Next busy train track Loud (garbage) truck that comes by in middle of the night Not really suitable for professionals or those used to chain hotels. Not good for extended stays, I would have paid the extra $20 a night for the Marriott or Courtyard.

    Not right for us

    The apartment was super clean and tidy, property well kept and bed was comfy! You can see the capitol when you walk out your door. It’s close to everything we walked everywhere. Now the not so great....... I feel like the heading of our reservation was a little misleading. It says two bedroom one bath in studio apartment. We have an infant so we need room for a pack and play. When we arrived, the room is so small, I cannot even set up a pack and play and had to sleep with the baby in bed with us. The room has no windows except for on the door which I don’t like. The door is right next to the entrance to the building so there is a ton of noise. I found ear plugs in the drawer and now I know why they are there. 😂 since this is the entrance people tend to stand here and talk right outside your door. The ac is so loud it woke me up several times. Also, the room cost us over $100 and there are several options close by, with more room that are 25% cheaper. I feel a bit cheated but it’s my own fault, I should have really read every detail. The room is perfect for a young couple wanting the night life because there are several really cool restaurants and bars in walking distance. I do not think this is for a traveler who needs any kind of extra space or who wants peace and quiet.

    This place is a really nice little studio and I’d located in a great location. However...it is located a few feet from an active railroad track that has a very loud train that comes by often. In addition, the room I stayed in was located next to the main entrance and every drunk moron that came home would have a 10-15 minute conversation with the other drunk morons making it extremely difficult to sleep through the night...I can certify that I was woken up multiple times on the first night and at 10, midnight and 3:30am on the last night. I would never stay here again.

    Nice small place. The AC was pretty loud though, was hard to sleep at night. Otherwise, very decent stay for the price.
