This is my first foray into the Airbnb world. I thought long and hard about how I would present my stay in these accommodations and finally decided to be honest although not brutally.
The host requested that I check-in at 7 pm in the evening which I thought unusual but I left the time up to the host. The host was not in attendance when I arrived but his girlfriend was and appeared to be nice enough. The room was not quite accurately described. The room is located upstairs from the kitchen, family room, dining room and above the garage. It is not 'isolated' as alluded to in the advertisement. Therefore, you can imagine that you will get the arrival/departures, conversations and aromas at the end of the day which are distracting if you are present. It is quiet during work hours. I was not anticipating having to CLEAN the bathroom before it could be used and the room had not been cleaned, vacuumed or the linens changed from the previous lodger(s). The host "thanked me" for cleaning but did not offer any concession for the conditions. If you have back problems, the bed will not be comfortable. There was NO microwave in the room as alluded to in the advertisement. The internet connectivity was inadequate. There is no access point located in that portion of the house so connectivity was unreliable if I could connect at all and when I complained nothing was done to correct the issue to my knowledge. The positives are that the water is piping hot, and the room is quiet during the day. If I had not already paid in full, I would have left the same day.
