Cozy and Adorable
This efficiency apartment was clean and well kept and provided a very comfortable stay. The kitchen was fully stocked, the tv was Roku ready and the bed and sofa bed were comfortable. The location is amazing, an easy walk to lots of fun places. While there was some street noise the white noise machine provided was a nice touch.

My stay

Awesome experience

Good stay
Stayed in one the garden level apartments. Location is amazing! Super convenient to use. Staff corresponded promptly. It’s perfect if you plan to be out and about for the majority of your stay, full size kitchen is a huge bonus. However, the apartment could use a fresh coat of paint and some minor fixes. Lack of outlets in the bedroom was a bummer but could be remedied if they supplied a power strip. Wouldn’t hurt to add a bedside table as well, i had no place to set my cpap on while i slept. The tap water tasted a little off so some complimentary water bottles would be nice however 7-11 is literally right outside your door.
