“ Poor ”
April 21, 2015
When we arrived at the property, we had to wait 1 hour before the owner (Sam) showed up. Sketchy fellow carrying a scraggly dod. He spoke to some parking attendants, gave one some money, and that attendant lead us through some back hallways to an elevator. We went to the 5th floor with Sam and walked down a smelly hallway to room 546. At this time it was 9pm at night. First impressions were that the property was much smaller that shown, was very smelly, had cigarette burns in the fake wood floor, etc. Sam then gave us our guard gate entry keycard and on it was the name Victor Flores with a photo of a hispanic man on it. I asked Sam why it said Victor Flores and he sad "just tell the guards you are guests of Victor Flores". Feeling uncomfortable, we left for dinner and when we came back to the guard gate, the guards told us there was no one named Victor Flores that lived there! We called Sam, he asked to speak to the guard, the guard yelled and told him he was not going to do this again, and he let us through. Very uncomfortable. Once back in the room, we were able to assess just how horrible this place was. Where the photos showed a washing machine was now just an empty space with hoses hanging out. The kitchen cabinets were full of painting supplies, chalk, used Raid Roach Bombs, lots of bugs and roaches, not to mention the group of bugs crawling all over the silverware in the drawer. None of the 3 TV's were operational. The towel bar was torn off the wall in one bathroom and the bathmats were so saturated that when lifted, they dripped, and as the bugs scattered from underneath, you could tell it was infested with mold. The closets were full of old boards, cabinets, building materials etc as there was little room to hang clothes. The "beds" were basically a 2 inch foam pad on top of a 5 inch wood pedestal, and the beds were also teaming with bugs. The sliding balcony door had no handle and no lock and the balcony itself had a dead plant in a planter resting on it. Being so late, we decided to try and sleep and deal with the mess in the morning but after waking with bug bites, we decided to leave and we emailed and texted both Nina and Sam to let them know and that we wanted a full refund. 15 days later, still no refund of our $2700.
