The Sierra Sky Ranch was an AWFUL EXPERIENCE!!! On arrival, we were taken to the "BUNK HOUSE" which should be called the "FUNK HOUSE." Our 150.00 a night bought us stained sheets that were not contour and too small to tuck in so we woke up on a dirty mattress each morning with no pad. The bedspread was fifthy!!! The shower was grungy and the shower head was so low that I had to crouch to rinse. "Decorator" carpets had been stapled to the floor and I stepped on a staple that had come loose and it went through my foot. The first day, our room received NO ROOM SERVICE until I complained and that evening and the lady at the desk quickly made our bed and gave us fresh but tattered linens. The security light shone through our old curtains all night and then the sunlight pierced the room!!! The second day, our room was once again overlooked by house keeping!!!! Again, I had to go to the front desk.The pillows were pancakes!!!! Our "terrace" gave us a view of the kitchen staff smoking behind the kitchen!!! I am a cat lover, but was apalled to watch a cat urinating in the hallway just outside our door!!! ... and the entire hotel REEKED of cat urine!!! The wall tiles in the bath were cracked and the mildew smell was atrocious!!! THERE WAS NO SECURITY!!!! A simple hook lock on one door and nothing on the other!!!! We had to leave the hotel to eat because the dining room decided to serve on tow entrees --- a pricy roast beef or some sort of Mexican dish ---- ALL WEEKEND!!!
We were given a "free night" but it was hardly compensation for such a horrific experience. DO NOT STAY IN ROOM 26!!!!
