We had read the reviews and decided to book at this hotel. When we arrived the room was definitely now what we expected. The bed was so low to the ground I don't know how we could have gotten up the next morning. We spoke with the manager and they showed us another room. Not much better but at least the bed was higher. We were exhausted and didn't want to drive all over to find another place.
We soon realized we should have driven on. There was no deadbolt on the door and the lock was totally insufficient. There was no air conditioning so you had to leave your unsecured window open. Everything was old and run down. I have stayed at older establishments before and there is a difference between vintage and run down. This is run down.
The neighborhood did not appear all that secure and we could not wait to get out of there the next morning. The breakfast consisted of a roll and there was nothing about this hotel that I could recommend (and I'm not a fussy traveler). I have no idea how this hotel has the positive reviews it does I kept thinking that I had to be at the wrong hotel but the address and the name confirmed that was not the case.
