My stay at the Arbutus
My room was the closest to the front desk, so I could hear conversations during the evening. Microwave did not work. Staff was helpful and friendly. Considering the maid did not clean my room for four days, one would think the daily rate would be more reasonable.

What I didn't like was the hotel policy that would not allow for someone other than the person staying at the hotel, to pay (leave a credit card #) for the security deposit. We were refused lodging and told to go somewhere else. The gentleman at the front desk was quite rude and abrupt. He gave us a number to give to Expedia to confirm cancellation. We received all but about $25 back for a 10 night stay when they cancelled the reservation. Note to everyone: Read the fine print before you confirm a reservation; make sure you understnd what it means; I didn't, so lesson learned.

ca1 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
The property was easy to get around except for the fact that they don't have an elevator. The property was very clean and smelled nice. I really appreciated that especially during this time. Due to Covid it takes them 4 hours to clean a room. On the one hand this made me feel comfortable (with our current situation) but on the other hand it was frustrating to not have access to our hotel until 3:00 and to be forced to check out at 11:00. The staff was very nice the rooms were super clean and it was so quiet and nice and dark in our room at night. the only issue was that they don't have any plates or cutlery. We ordered delivery but had nothing to eat it on or with. Other than that great place to stay for a reasonable price. We booked a room very last minute so it was $107 including tax and we had a king size bed. Our room included internet, a TV with an HDMI cord and a desk and a full size fridge and microwave and stove. You could pretty much live here.
