We found the bed unmade. We made it ourselves with very substandard bedding. The sheets were not well made, they did not have deep enough pockets to stay on the bed. The corners kept coming off and were uncomfortable Microfiber. Only enough towels for 2 people although listing says sleeps 4. Ceiling fan was LOUD. Listed as a condo, but nothing to cook on; only tiny sink, tiny microwave, mini fridge. Did have coffee maker. Needs TLC and a bit of paint and finish work in bathroom. Window in bedroom opens to hallway which was once an exterior wall. Curtains did not block light. Had a hard time figuring out the lock. Called property manager, asked about the lock and the bed, she said she would “see what she could do for us” since the bed was an issue, but never heard back from her. Disappointing. Location was a redeeming factor, but would not stay here again.
Location, Location, that’s all
In all the rentals I’ve ever used this is my first negative review. I would say in its current state this “condo” is unrentable. The master bed is completely destroyed. Previous reviews talked about the mattress being worn but the entire bed frame is destroyed. After 2 nights of attempting to sleep on it we gave up an settled for the pull out love seat. Even though this room is located in a hotel they do not provide daily cleaning, fresh towels, or extra toilet papers. So expect your trash to pile up, reusing the sub par towels, and the bedding to remain strune about. There are many other minor quirks that other reviewers go into detail about but I will quickly summarize them. Fan in living room above medium has the screech of a dying puppy, bathroom underwhelming with walls torn up from where pictures have fallen off the walls, rooms are cooled by window units that have seen better days, and the kitchenette needs some TLC.
This place could be amazing but I feel it has been neglected too long.
Positives. Location, simple walk into downtown Charlevoix. Has a nice out door sitting area for a nice cool night (no view and traffic noise though) and convienient parking.
Just need the property manager to step up and return this room to its full potential.
Lastly not sure how 4 people could ever stay here. Only 2 towels and no bedding on the pullout love seat.
Excellent location, small improvements needed
Property location was excellent and it was very clean. Warm welcome from front desk staff and secure building. However, small snafus and some needed repairs would have made it better:
1) A/C in bedroom was obnoxiously loud and inconsistent in noise, which kept us up at night
2) the bedroom “window” actually faces the condo hallway and the curtain in place is too flimsy to block the light. A blackout curtain would be great. We ended up hanging a blanket to help.
3) Bathroom shower door seal leaked and the wall above the jacuzzi had a damage from a previously hung photo or mirror
4) Ceiling fan motor in the living room was so noisy we could not use it (screeching is more the word)
5) sliding porch door was off its track
6) bed needed a new mattress; it’s worn enough that we both slid into the middle.
These things aside the place has been modeled, looked fresh, etc. just needed some TLC or an overnight from the owner to ID parts that would really irritate guests. Beautiful area and easy walk to everything!
Dirty and Disappointing
This rental was a disaster, the owners are unresponsive and unhelpful, and the online representation of this place is deceptive. Do NOT stay here. We booked this place for Labor day weekend for a family wedding, and drove seven hours to find the place in shambles - dirty is an understatement.
The bedding was clearly not washed, was visibly soiled, and the sheets did not even fit the mattress. We had to use our own beach towels as bed linens. We were only provided with one bath towel each. Very small and old. The kitchenware was dirty and only consisted of dirty plates, one knife, and no glasses. In the refrigerator we found old food that was left behind and a freezer that was covered in ice and unusable. There was no WIFI working . There screen door did not close. I have stayed in many rentals booked online before, but have never encountered anything like this. The images online must be years old, because this place is nothing like how it is represented.
We called the property manager, but no response. As it was Labor day weekend, there were no options to stay anywhere else. After many back-and-forths we were finally able to get a hold of someone. They informed us that they have not visited their rental themselves in years. When we informed them of the status of the place, we were offered less than a 10% refund on our visit - only covering the cleaning fee or a weekend stay in the future!! We would never be back in this area again and surly not stay here! This was truly outrageous. I am not one to write scathing reviews, however, as the owners will not return our calls or emails, I feel I have no choice. The unit is in terrible shape, the online presentation of it is viciously misrepresented, and the owner's handling of their rental is shameful. It would be a mistake to rent this property.
Great spot to stay!
This was a great location with easy walking to explore Charlevoix. Some earlier reviews mentioned that the window coverings were transparent...that has been corrected. The unit is nicely decorated, very clean, and has a comfy bed. I booked through HomeAway, and Briana posted all the check-in info we needed on the app. Would definitely stay here again.
The location in Charlevoix was excellent. The property was ready shortly after the time of check in time. The property is older and the outside patio was dirty. The inside is properly maintained.
