“Bring your own cleaning supplies”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

Stayed here in June for 6 nights with a group visiting Camden to do volunteer work. Only stayed here because it is 1 of only 2 hotels in the town - and the other one is worse! The hotel is just old and broken down. Definitely needs a thorough cleaning. Don't count on the continental breakfast, either. Once I saw the condition of the lobby area I wasn't about to touch any food that came out of there. It reeked of mildew and years of dirt and dust. I came prepared with lysol, detergent, and a few other cleaning supplies and was glad I did. Toilet was dirty, sink was dirty, countertops were dusty, and I didn't even bother looking at the sheets, just covered them up with the mattress cover and sheets I brought with me. Other reviewers complained the beds were flat, but our King bed was a fairly new, thick pillowtop mattress, and we slept comfortably every night.

Positive notes: (1) no bedbugs! (2) A/C in the rooms was ICE COLD. My hubby likes it cold and even he had to turn the A/C down (3) all of the rooms have microwaves and min-refrigerators, which was nice. There's a Piggly Wiggly down the street that we utilized to get some groceries (4) free WIFI (5) pleasant staff.

The hotel was in need of updating. The mattress was lumpy, beddings were well worn, comforter wasn't clean and chairs were well worn. There were some type of bugs lying around outside and inside. Room smelled of mildew. Had to change rooms because the mini fridge didn't work in the 1st room. Could tell at one time the hotel was nice, but now in desparate need of updating.

Log Cabin type, single story. Rooms are huge, beds were tinie tiny!! Bedspreads too big for the size bed we had, pillows were pancake flat, old bedding. Towels are kinda scrathy!! Good stay for hunters and fishermen. We were in for 3 days and everyday the owner would call our room asking if we were checking out For some reason!! Overall, decent.
