Response from the owner We strive very hard for guests to have a fantastic experience at the Arcade Historic Property. As guests can see from all the other reviews, the property is well appreciated by everyone who has visited. It was very unfortunate that these guests had a negative noise experience with the neighbors and the restaurant. We generally receive many compliments regarding the cleanliness and condition of the unit. Again, it was unfortunate that the cleaners were behind schedule that day. It happens sometimes. Saturday is a very busy turnover day in the summer. On the other hand, some of the furniture may well have reached the end of its usefulness and we appreciate having that pointed out. We are upgrading many pieces and we will install a shaving mirror for 2019!.
