By far the absolute strangest place I've ever stayed!! After driving 7 hours yesterday as you'd imagine we were hoping to get a good night sleep, not the case! The beds for starters are rOck hard! I literally feel like I'm sleeping on concrete! My backs killing me and I am not exaggerating. Guests here are insanely disrespectful. I see why the office closes at midnight and the staff leaves, it's because they'd be awake all night dealing with inconsiderate noisy guests. It's 1:10am and people next door are laughing slamming into the walls opening and closing there front door every 5 minutes literally partying and there's nothing I can do but lay here trying to sleep to be rudely awaken by laughter blaring music or people just being rude! Then let's not forget how outdated these rooms are. Definitely not your standard motel/hotel room. The walls are paper thin you can completely hear word for word conversations between people in the adjacent rooms to ours as im sure they can hear ours too. Old furnishings, no a/c which right now doesn't matter but to some I know it's a big deal anytime. Small outdated tv, fridge and microwave may be the newest things in here. All in all I don't recommend if a peaceful sleep is what you r after.
