Service and Staff
Property condition


Staff was nice, property needs changes. Staff was a one man crew. He was able to accommodate my request. First room was ran down and Neighbor’s cigar smoke lingered into my room. Second room was up to date and felt more comfortable.

The room was dirty! Not sure if they never cleaned it after the previous stay but there was a dirty leftover pizza box with leftovers in the room. The coffee pot was also dirty.

Not so hot

The room we were in had sheer curtains that were shredded. There was an electrical outlet out of the wall with the wires showing. Not all of the outlets worked. The hot & cold faucet in the shower was installed backwards. They took our towels every day,but didn’t replace them so I had to go to the office to get new towels every night.

Stayed 5 nights in Jul 2019


There was no toilet paper, phone was dead so no contact to room service, Bathroom door lock was not working, sheets were stained, room door key cards worked just once so had to make multiple rounds to check in office to activate/ change them, there was no coffee in coffee maker machine, rooms were not cleaned well so it was stinking, found used bandage and tissue paper under the table. I paid $333 and didn’t even receive basic needs while staying.

Pretty much like all the other reviews. Olace is very dated for what you pay. Durty outside. Pool doesnt work. Tv diesnt work air con doesnt work. Loud plumbing. If you are going to just sleep and leave paying 50 dollars is ok. But paying 150? Spend alittle more and go somewhere else. .... the breakfast consists of warm milk and packaged donuts.... the oj wqs good tho. No lids for coffee cups.
