Note: Lilly Pad has 5 rooms, is for students and is no frills. If you are a party of 2, select 2 guests. So you share common space with others. Plus we have 7 Bengal Cats and their kittens that live outside the house in their own housing chambers but you will see their supplies around the back or front yard. Other student guests staying here may make your stay good, great or not so good. It depends who books. So if you are not a student, or have a problem putting on your own bedsheets, or stripping them at checkout, or have a problem with students storing their luggage or me crashing out in living room at times, or have any issues with the detailed instructions I send after you book, talk to me first or do not book. I do not want a 4 star review because you were not made aware of what to expect here. Skip the review or please do not book if your expectations are different.
Check in anytime. Just follow self checkin process. Any questions or anything pls feel free to call or text. We have lot of guests and its difficult to manage expectations especially for non yalie visitors as house is really geared for no frill Yalies.
Cosy, ideal for Yale visitors. The room is part of a victorian home that has been a welcoming spot for Yalies for last 4 years. It is not a hotel. It is a lived-in space and has many visitors. Therefore if you are expecting a hotel, this is not it. Cleanliness and organization is important for me the host and I hope it is important to you as well but please keep in mind sometimes because of people checking in, checking out, cooking, studying, typing, printing assignments, house gives a "lived-in" look.
Price is lower than what comparable homes ask for on Airbnb. Amenities and proximity to Yale is comparable if not better than a lot, if not most, of the options on Airbnb.
But if you are for immaculate cleanliness a hotel is probably a better option (at three times the price in downtown New Haven).
Also note, when in town, I often end up crashing out in the living room couch - full disclosure. House has a lived-in look. You will see residents luggage in living room or people coming in and out.
Noise: There may be 3 potential sources of noise. (1) Street people and downtown cars playing loud music. There is nothing that can be done about this. It comes with living downtown close to Yale. (2) Next door neighbors playing music. There is a New Haven City Ordinance that requires peace and quiet after 9 pm. If you encounter annoying music played by neighbors, read my printed instructions regarding making a noise complaint with the New Haven police printed in the hallway/stairs and make the complaint call. (3) Other Guests talking loudly in the house. Remember you are one of the several guests staying. So if someone talks loudly and you find it disturbing, please either tell me or talk to the loud guest and let him/her know to keep it down. These things are beyond my control, as I have open booking on Air BnB. Therefore do not book if you expect a library environment. I don't need a 4 star review based on sounds that are not in my control.
Note on Clutter:
Free Storage provided to guests on main floor adds to the clutter. Additionally there is always some element of improvements taking place on premises. This place is for Yale students and no frills travelers who are looking for budget and safe travel options at Yale. There is no clutter on 2nd and 3rd floors, where the rooms are located. Also, if instructions on self checkin scare you, please do not book. Watch the self checkin video. Security and guidelines help all. Hence the elaborate instructions you get when you book.
Cameras & Security at Yale:
Please note Yale has iffy neighborhoods. I have EXTERNAL security cameras. So if you have an issue with external security cameras, pls do not book. Specifically, 2 EXTERNAL security cameras (in front and back of house), a Security System with motion sensor on ground floor. No sensors/cameras on 2nd/3rd floors.
