I literally walked into a room here and walked out. Where to begin? Old school, little rabbit eared tv and rusted, barely working airconditioner wall unit chugging loudly and ineffectively away. Dingy furniture, nasty smell, NO bedspread or comforter on bed (why, I ask is that)? A rather suspicious stain on the carpet. Sign next to room says that there are cancer causing agents on premise-that's conducive to a great night's sleep for me!
So, I went to the front desk and informed the woman behind the desk that the room was unacceptable and that we wouldn't be staying. She said that since it was after 3pm (it was almost 4pm) I was not going to get a refund for the room. The whole time she's hammering me about "what's wrong with the room"? I was trying to be polite as there were other guests in the lobby, but she kept at me with "what's wrong with the room"? I said, "I'm sorry if this causes a problem for you". This charmer actually said to me "No, you're not". That's when I decided I would list the room's faults for everyone in the lobby to hear. And then I left for the Whiskey Creek Inn down the road. I'm very glad I did! it was clean, nicer pool and jacuzzi and the staff was helpful and civil. I had to pay 79 bucks NOT to stay at the Vagabond. It was worth it.
