Location was great for us. Required upgrading in bathroom , required detailed cleaning such as corners and edges, an electric outlet not working. I cleaned areas to my own standard. BUT will go back again in March, may upgrade when booking. In all fairness i note most places over time lack detail in their cleaning.
