I stayed here about a year ago and while the exterior is just decent, the interior is very nice and extremely clean. It's in a nice area and is very close by to restaurants, supermarkets, even a golf course and lots of retail shops. The rooms itself though are set back from the main road so it does provide a...

My boyfriend and I stayed here from 3/15/04 - 3/20/04. I was scared after reading the reviews, but once I got there, I was so glad. This is a clean place and even though it is not gated, our apartment was all the way in the back so we felt safe since it was away from the main road. Our... More

Two of us stayed here in late Jan 2004. The apartment obviously dates back some decades, but the interior was clean and very spacious -- an apartment with a full kitchen. It was nice to have the sitting area and the fridge. For the price, it was a great deal. We stayed in more expensive hotels with lots less room.... More

Each room had a different floor plan which I found to be more... More

This is not a hotel- it's a corporate apartment complex. I TRIED staying there once last year, only to have them tell me the kind of room I booked was not available. After about 20 minutes the man at the desk- quite possible the rudest person I've ever encountered in years of business travel- gave me a room and key... More

Poor maintenance of TV remote controls and answering machines in rooms. Often bad record-keeping in office. One time I was assigned to a room and found that it had not yet been made up. The rooms and hallways have an unpleasant odor. My company had a contract with St Francis Arms, which is why I stayed there 7 times. PS:... More

An excellent experience from making the reservations to check out. The grounds are delightful, rooms large and very clean, continental breakfast a delight, great pool and the staff goes out of their way to make sure that your stay is the very best it can be. First time I have even felt that the time it takes to place a... More
