Thank you very much for your review. It is important that our guests pass along things such as an issue with a bed. This is a brand new mattress, just short of one year old. We will certainly be looking into the bed you slept on in that particular room to be sure there are no major concerns. We can... More

No power or water upon arrival, was offered a discount, and then argued with about said discount. on top of this was lied to about WiFi password because manager can't spell "schooner", the building is named after one for Christ sakes!

Dirty ,smelly, one of the beds were broken etc... We mentioned the broken bed to the clerk at checkout and she said "oh really, I know that you guys were jumping up and down on it" in a sarcastic tone and just shrugged it off; no sorry or apology or anything. No class! We pulled into town late after we... More

Room was dingy and old, and the smell chocked me. They had some kind of deodorizer smell in the room that was just awful. Hotel is built on the side of a hill with sorta weird parking, you drive up and up these tiered levels. The bathroom was old and had stained fixtures. Wifi worked for about an hour of... More
