    Location near Interstate 8. Only 15 min to the beach. Air Conditioner worked well, and is placed high up on the wall above 6ft..so that it would cool the whole room and family.

    Spider in the bathroom, dirty/ stained carpets. Volume set to med/low. Cant' hear in the daytime, only at night, when it gets quieter. The price was too high for the rank of it. It's more of a single mans quarters.."on the run".

    Superb

    Loved having continental breakfast, microwave and a refrigerator! Room was very spacious; photos don't do it justice. Staff very accommodating at check in and when I had a problem with the toilet.

    Issue with toilet not flushing and requiring them to come to room to fix it.

    When checking in We were told our booking could not be found in their reservation system and were asked to contact the Booked.net. So we had to make an int'l call back by ourselves to the customer service of Booked.net to solve the problem. Although the problem was solved soon, it was not a light-hearted experience to us. What would it be if we did not have the mobile phone with us ?

    I did not like getting ripped off for $50 of the $200 deposit required at check in. Did not appreciate the SURPRISE of this deposit. It was not mentioned when I booked. Didn't like having to move when the bathroom ceiling leaked because of rain
