It could be described as a bit dated but it was clean and provided all we needed.

Built in 1973, I guess it could be called a bit dated, but very clean and functional. Offers more than a lot of modern styles. People appreciate the Spanish style and the roomy units. Wouldn't change it. Please come again.

Thanks for staying with us, and your feedback. We are happy to discuss what amenities you consider outdated face to face rather than an online review as the end result would be more positive.
