One Star is Generous
Aging rental in need of maintenance and CLEANING. We were not given the correct codes/security password for WIFI. There was no list of TV cable channels. There was no thermostat, so when we were sweating all nite long, we didn't know how warm the room was, just that we were very uncomfortable. The polyester bed sheets didn't stay on the bed and the bed was super soft, like sleeping on a pillow.The air conditioning didn't cool the room (80's daytime temp), it ran continuously if set at 76 or below and the front cover was covered with pea size clumps of dust balls. The red "clean filter" light was on the entire time. The inside of the floor lamp shade was fuzzy with dust and had dead bug carcasses in it. Bathroom mirror filthy, shower had previous tenants toiletry products in it and sides of vanity were splashed with white streaks (someone's tooth paste slime?) The shower temperature was difficult to set and changed from warm to HOT for no reason without any warning. Be prepared to jump out of the shower at a moments notice to prevent being scalded. Towels had two previous tenants cast off hair on them which transferred to my body when I used them after my shower...eww! Kitchen floor had dried noodles/spaghetti sauce stuck to the floor. The one pot holder and drying rack for dishes were filthy and we did not use them. It was a challenge to use the cast iron frying pan without a pot holder. The other pots/pans were too small for cooking breakfast for two people. Cooking utensils all had to be washed before we could use them. Cupboard was empty except for salt and pepper shakers. No other complimentary items were provided. Useful items like cutting board, strainer for noodles, mixing bowls, casserole dish were missing. Pool had algae growing on the bottom, and an open outdoor garbage receptacle had discarded deli containers filled with food baking in the sun. It was never emptied then entire 10 days we were there. The wine opener was broken and there were no wine glasses/barware. There is a coin operated laundry on the first floor, however, the machines were dirty when the site manager showed me where they were upon our arrival, and they were still dirty when we vacated the rental. You get the picture...just select a different rental and you will be a lot happier.
This review is filled with false statements. These guests did not contact us once during their stay to complain about the cleanliness of the apartment or the supposed issues with the WIFI, the shower, or the A/C despite the fact that our onsite maintenance manager walked through the property with them at the time of check in and they were given a phone number to report problems with the unit 24 hours a day.
Both the A/C and the shower were inspected after their departure and found to be in working order with no issues. The A/C does have a thermostat and has a setting that will allow it to cycle on and off according to the temperature instead of running continuously. The WIFI was working during their stay. Our other tenants and guests did not have any problem connecting to it. And we advised them that if they had any difficulty connecting with their particular devices they could contact our onsite manager at any time for assistance connecting.
The apartment was professionally cleaned before they arrived. However, our cleaning staff did a rush job to accommodate a check in time for these guests that was a day early with only a few hours advance notice. We believe it is possible that the cleaning staff may have missed a few things during that rush job such as the spot on the floor, but the linens were definitely clean and did not have any hair on them and we would have gladly cleaned the apartment again if they would have expressed any dissatisfaction during the walk through or at any other time. The toiletries they are claiming were left by previous guests were new toiletries that were provided to these guests as a courtesy.
The pool is professionally cleaned every week even though it is not used in the winter. The pool has a pebble tec finish that gives it a blue green appearance, it is not algae.
We're sorry to hear that some of the items that we usually have stocked in our kitchen such as wine glasses, and a cutting board were missing. We may have missed this in our rush job trying to accommodate an early check in for these guests. If these guests had reached out to us, we would have provided them with whatever they needed for a comfortable stay.
Our property is an old building but it is well maintained and we have 24 hour onsite maintenance to insure our guests will be comfortable and repairs are done quickly. The few valid complaints made could have been easily remedied if these guests had worked with us instead of waiting to complain after leaving.
Charming, quiet home away from home
The building manager was great and went above and beyond to make me feel at home and make sure I had a good vacation. The building was quiet and clean, the décor has style and the neighbourhood was very centrally located. I would be happy to stay here again in the future.
Interesting historic building, close to university. Very quiet and secure.
Needs some updating. Bed needs new mattress. Manager helpful and our request for two chairs was immediately satisfied. Good location for tall people and we were only 5'6". All cabinets were hard to reach, and micro location was not so good. However, they gave us a step stool which solved the problem!
Good parking and new kitchen appliances that functioned well. Probably better for a single person than a couple. All in all, quite satisfactory.
Not like the pictures at all, couch was a shiny leather sofa in the picture and was warn out crumbled with a cover over it. I was very disappointed in the apartment, the stove was greasy, which I cleaned and the couch on the VRBO site picture was a nice leather sofa and underneath was a crumbled couch that has a cover on it, the rug needs replacing. It was not what I expected from the pictures. Your place is unacceptable, I only stayed 4 nights of my monthly rental, I thought VRBO would be a reputable site.
False comments from a guest who was impossible to please. She demanded a refund because she didn't like the neighborhood our rental is in even though she could provide no evidence to her claims that our historic university area neighborhood was "unsafe"
Even though the apartment was professionally cleaned before the guest arrived, we offered to clean it again since she was dissatisfied with the stove, but she checked out and refused to work with us. The comments about the rug are completely false, the rug was replaced less than a month before her arrival. Everything in the apartment was exactly as pictured with the exception of the sofa. It was clearly explained to the guest that there was some minor peeling on the sofa's upholstery that we did not have time to repair before her arrival and that we put a slipcover on it to improve the appearance. When she did not like the appearance of the sofa with the slipcover, we offered to replace the sofa with an identical leather sofa from our leasing office during her stay, but she refused to work toward any resolution.
This guest had very unrealistic expectations and she should not be renting vacation rentals.
I have stayed at the Castle apartments 3 times so far in the past year and have several more trips planned. I do long business trips to the U of A and the Castle's location is perfect for this, I keep my rental car in the private parking lot, but walk to and from the University each day so I don't have to be hassled with parking on campus. I have stayed in both the studio and 1 bedroom apartments and both are great. They are clean, well appointed and have all the comforts of home away from home. Zack and Amy, the owners are great, they are easy to communicate with through email and are extremely flexible, my first trip out I arrived late and they were there to meet me and welcome me and explain everything. I have had several great trips to the Castle Apartments and look forward to more!
We are located a half mile from the University of Arizona and within walking distance from popular shopping and dining destination 4th Avenue
