Houston - San Antonio - Austin
Basic Information
I stayed at 1111 Wilshire, managed by Ginosi Apartments. My family experienced many issues on the property, including the following (taken from correspondence to the apartment manager): - Hidden Parking Costs - When I booked our stay here, I read that there was limited on-street parking and we had the option of getting a space for $30, but what I learned at your leasing office is that there was NO overnight parking, so obviously I had no choice but to purchase a space for two nights. Avoiding this cost went into the choice of your property versus another. - Lack of proper bedding - When we arrived, we did not have full bedding for the cot and the futon. I had to call your office twice, the first individual saying that they would get back to me (they did not), the second individual saying they could get what I needed but I had to come pick it up because they were the only one in the office. Completely unacceptable that I had to get in my car and drive to get the rest of our bedding. - Quality of larger bed - I have found the quality of the mattress to be less than acceptable. My wife and I can actually feel the springs. It did not make for a good night sleep. - Lack of kitchen amenities - While I realize that most of your guests may not touch the kitchen, I have found the number of glasses and the lack of dish washing liquid or a scrubber brush less than acceptable. - Locks on door - This may not be helped and may only amount to a suggestion, but in comparison to a hotel, to have one single solitary keyed deadbolt without an additional chain or additional bolt that only I have access to on the inside was unsettling and did not give me a sense of security for my family. -In general, we don't find the apartment to be ultra clean and we just discovered the lack of a bath mat. -When using the toaster, I noticed there was a small electrical short that was making a spark. I immediately turned it off. I suggest you get rid of it before someone gets hurt. - Last night, we discovered broken porcelain or glass behind a chair in the corner of the room. See the attached photo. There was also a small shard on the chair which I discovered first. - We are leaving all dirty dishes in the dishwasher, which we could not run given the lack of detergent. After writing this, I was offered a $60 discount to cover the parking fees, nothing more. I expressed that because of our experience I felt that we should have paid half as much as we did. I was then told that $60 off would be all they would offer. I never accepted. I would think twice before staying at any property operated by Ginosi Apartments.

Folks at Veracruz all natural: you guys know I support you and think your tacos are THE BEST in Austin but I have been very put off by the fact that you guys don't start answering calls at 8am like you're scheduled to. If you guys are posted as opening up at 8am, you should open at 8am, not 8:15am. This is my only issue with Verazruz All Natural. They have great food and homemade tortillas which is very rare in Austin. Highly recommended but guys get it together and open when you say you'll open!! :)
