thank goodness I read the reviews or I would have drove by and canceled my reservation.
This place is kind of run down , but I gave it a fair chance because of the reviews.
The check in area and place for breakfast are very cute. Kind of rustic and old but cozy. The man at the desk acted like he was so happy to see us.And I think he likes to see everyone and truely wants everyone to have a nice time.
Our first room smelled like smoke so we got it changed. I saw other rooms on our floor that looked newer.
Our room was big. The bed was old but more comfortable than it looked.I would not say the room was nice, but was comfortable and quiet.
It was nice to have an outdoor pool. Something you don't see often. It was clean and warm. The chairs were comfortable, and I enjoyed the piped in music.
This hotel is being renovated soon and a new hotel is going in the back lot.
I hope this independent hotel can hold its own. The owner sure was nice, and I like doing buisness with individuals instead of corporate giants.
Good luck with the renovations!
