The hotel has a very nice reception building with deep south traditional white columns and red brick. it seemed inviting and was offered at a great price. However, the rooms are in a different older building and although they appeared clean--we found 3 bugs in the beds between the sheets. Since we have NEVER encountered bed bugs, I can't say for sure that is what they were--but they sure looked like the pictures on the internet. When we went to the desk to check-out (with one of the bugs in a small zip lock bag) the clerk didn't seemed too surprised. When asked whether they had had a problem in the past with bugs, he sort of hedged and didn't answer. (I was freaking out!) When asked if he could help us find another hotel--he said he was sorry, all he could do was give us our money back. This was at 11:00 at night after a long day in the car. What an ordeal! I've never given a bad review on anything but feel this is appropriate. BEWARE.
