I'm not sure where to begin... I never write reviews but I wanted to share my experience so that maybe I could save someone from such a horrible experience. I unfortunately did not see this website before booking a weekend getaway at Country Getaway in Tyler TX. Their website, http://www.countrygetaway.net, is VERY misleading. My husband and I wanted one last... More

This was the worst place to spend our anniversary. The place was a dump and the food was nasty. The people lingered around when not wanted. Our credit card was over charged and we have yet to get our money back 4 months later. A friend of mine told us not to stay but the web pages looked so nice.... More

The web page is deceiving ..to say the least. I was going to rent this place for my girlfriend and I anniversary.. Not happening, she was afraid to stay the night. Starting with the outside... The whole place looked like a run down trailer park. Siding of the room we were suppose to stay in was falling off.. The inside... More

This place promised seclusion, fully equipped kitchen, and hot tub. We got there - no hot water, no kitchen equipment, no oven, and the curtains (on PVC pipe) fell off the wall. To top it off, there was some guy in the next room playing guitar. Couldn't cook dinner - no utensils. Hot tub was all apart and being worked... More

This was undoubtedly the worse place I've ever stayed. The rug in our bedroom looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in weeks. The chair and ottoman had old, stained cushions. The sheets were dingy. In the bath, the tub and toilet were dirty. I actually cleaned the toilet myself before I would use it. There were exposed wires everywhere. The... More

We were hoping for the peaceful , cosy B&B so elegantly described on the web site, but were met with a filthy, poorly run facility. The first 'clue' perhaps was that the owner was nowhere to be seen on our arrival, and I had to call her to come to the house. The main house smelled musty and generally dirty.... More

This was by far the worst bed and breakfast I have ever been to. The floors were dirty and the toilets did not flush everytime they were flushed. Also, if you want to watch tv you have to watch it with the hired help who lives in the same house. Also, the house had a funny stinch, and I saw... More

The bedroom was small. TV didn't work. Hot tub wasn't working. A water line busted while we were there leaving one house without water. The place was filthy (especially the floors and bathroom). There was only 3 towels and one wash cloth left out for 5 guests to share (GROSS) and the soap and shampoo bottles had mold growing on... More
