We stayed here after there was no other place available in town that would allow our dog. We were sorely disappointed. OK...granted it was last-minute and the town was packed with people who lost their camping reservations in the area due to the government shut-down, but still...one would think that in this town where the overall atmosphere is of high value ambiance and polished cultural sophistication, that even the lowest cost accommodations would hold some kind of reflection of the town. Here were the low-ilghts of this place: (keep in mind we paid $325 for one night in this place).
* This place is only dog tolerable. Not dog friendly.
* For breakfast, you cannot bring your dog into the breakfast room and you are not allowed to bring your breakfast to your room or the beautiful courtyard seating area....huh??
* The Inn-Keeper, a man who is not very friendly or accommodating, sneezed several times without covering his mouth and it was such a disgusting sight to see him spray his sneeze all over the place.
* There was no air-conditioning.
* The walls are PAPER THIN. We could hear everything going on outside our room. I could hear conversations going on in the patio. I woke up every 20 minutes.
* The windows which open out to the courtyard from the rooms, open put about 15" at the most into the hallways which themselves are tiny.
* The bed was small and uncomfortable. (We got a "King" room but it was a Queen at best)
* The morning breakfast was so blah. Waffles that you make yourself and coffee that was the worst I've had in ages. Most places will leave out some fruit for their guests and coffee, but this place put it away 10 minutes before the breakfast was to be "over". The woman taking care of the breakfast area who I believe to be the co-inn-keeper, said, "there were only 4 people who came to breakfast..." gee...I wonder why.
* No water in the room
* Everything in the room seemed filthy or falling apart or both.
* The bathroom was terrible; cramped, packets of shampoo that you had to tear open, the sink had calcified areas and the towels were scratchy.
* The paint on the walls were peeling. How much would it cost to simply repaint your place?
* The moulding was missing in many parts around the room and made it look so shabby.
Here were the good points:
* The garden's were lovely. I wish we were welcomed to enjoy them while we had breakfast.
Umm....can't think of any other good points.
