“Horrified”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Whatever you do not stay at this hotel.  Didn't feel safe when we pulled up. But decided to stay since we had prepaid.  The room had roaches no iron or ironing board. Had to go to separate building to ask for an iron and mini ironing board that you sit on a table. The room smelled. The pool was not fit for my dog to swim. This is the hotel prostitutes take their johns. The owner was one of the rudest men I have ever met.   Had to book another hotel down the street. Wouldn't stay there if they paid me.

Room Tip: Don't stay there.

This property is in need of repair. The room was not clean, especially the bathroom, and the water did not properly drain when taking a shower. Would usually enjoy the strong shower pressure but the tub filled up with water so quickly, we were reduced to one minute showers. The lighting was very dim (had to step outside in the sunlight to apply face makeup). The sheets and towels were stained and there was no shampoo. The room was very drafty to the point of blowing the curtain. Someone attempted to enter our room unannounced at 5am (housekeeping????); after the door chain kept them from entering, I tried to look through the peephole in the door only to discover it was stuffed with tissue.

This is an older property that is in need of some upgrades. It appears that the owners are in the process of doing just that as time and money allows. The owners appear to be onsite and they were very kind and helpful. Unfortunately, the room was in need of a more thorough cleaning in regards to the bathroom floors, sink, and bathtub. It appears that they were given a once over and nothing more. Also, there is not shampoo in the room. I had to go to the main office and it was provided. The bedsheets were very clean though and the shower pressure was the best I have come across. Hopefully needed improvements will be made to the hotel because the owners are super nice and I would like to see this property do well. For a one night stay this hotel is okay, but if you plan on staying for more than one night, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
