The place looks abandoned from the outside. It was dark--no lights, and one of the windows was boarded up with plywood. The cab driver asked if we were sure that was the right place. In hindsight, I wish we had asked him to take us somewhere else. They weren't expecting us, and the room wasn't ready. Then, there was no hot water in that room. They moved us to the room with the boarded up window. Soap bar was recycled, used by a prior guest. Breakfast was white bread toast and jelly and not very good coffee. Photos must have been taken 30 years ago. Everything is dusty and old. Something about the owner's manner reminded me of a bad movie--she seemed like a nice lady, but there seemed to be a menacing undercurrent. I didn't feel safe, and couldn't get out of there fast enough. Before we left, the owner asked us to write a review in her presence. We did not feel comfortable sharing our true thoughts with the owner looking over our shoulders. There were no restaurants within walking distance, and no free shuttle anywhere. Only redeeming feature--they had free internet for my daughter to use.
