Amenities & Room:
No toaster cutting board
but the kitchen was missing a microwave
I really hated saying anything bad
As is it is a really big comfortable hotel room with a refrigerator
the kitchen has no cooking utensils a one quart pot and a few small skillets
The sink water pressure in every room was super low
she was able to give us directions and we had no more problems
big trucks all day and all night
We were a bit surprised that it sits on a major road with all day long fast traffic
Luckily Brandy (our Evolve contact) messaged me back and even with my bad mountain/cell phone reception
Also be careful about VRBO that evolve management company run
It ended up being a good location
but really it's walking distant to chains like CVS
no one else really explained that
The listing led me to believe we could walk to restaurants and shops
the location is not the greatest
