Our first impression was a dead bird on the stones right next to the deck to our room and then a bunch of bird poo on the deck which was from a nest in the eves of the deck (we had the room which was behind the restaurant and had a covered porch/deck to the room. From there, we stepped into a very dark and musty smelling room. We opened the windows but one of the screens was broken so we were concerned about bugs getting in...or BIRDS, so we only kept one window open! This place was not worth paying over $100. We should have driven a bit further and found a place in Groveland.
Shower barely spit out water.
On the plus side, the bed was very nice and comfortable and the room did seem clean. Rooster woke us up in the morning as well as a dog barking because we did keep the windows open.
