Third trip here, second one for a month, booked it in July,Nov1-Dec.1. Upon arriving we were barricade from parking in front on the building, had to park halfway in the parking lot. When checking in asked about, was told they were doing some construction( first we heard of this), the early morning wakeup (7:00am) with sound of large machine that was sitting in front of our unit (unit 215) and the sound of saws and hammers, great way to start the day off for the next 30 days. Even had noise after 10pm on the 3rd floor with construction, asked several times about the noise early and late, just got excuses .The staff told my husband they had a talk with the workers, should not start to work before 8 and stop at 5, well SO MUCH FOR THAT. Think that made it WORSE!!!! The room was not as clean as it should have been, carpets are terrible NASTY!!!! painting the building, replacing all the windows, construction in the rooms above us all month, SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE CALLED TO LET US KNOW THESE THINGS WOULD BE HAPPENING. WE are retired and like a vacation of relaxing and not in the middle of construction. THIS HAS BEEN THE WORST AND MOST STRESSFUL MONTH I HAVE EVER SPENT ON VACATION. This is the reason we book this month, quietness and less people. NOT THIS TIME. Will be thinking about NOT RENTING NEXT YEAR.
