                              Location, price, cleanliness.

                              No microwave, no fridge, no toaster, poor coffee maker

                              I was never told there wasn't an elevator at the villa I booked hauling luggage up steep stairs after knee surgery wasn't easy it didn't feel like a nice time when it's so much work without the elevator. How many hotels do you know about without elevators? I don't know any do you give a free room with an elevator for my next visit so I can enjoy my stay?

                              Having to pay for parking in a relatively empty parking lot is ridiculous. The $9.95 parking fee was not disclosed until check in. It's not the $9.95 that bothers me, it's the fact that I feel it is only used to increase revenue while advertising lower facility rates on booking.

                              We enjoyed staying local without having to drive home after a festive celebration. We liked the location and the price was outstanding.
