This was our first time at the Weatervane, and it will be out last. Our building did not have an elevator, and the closest set of stairs to our second floor room were circular and located in a turret! Needless to say, it was very difficult navigating our way up the narraow passage while toting luggage and various travel items. The turret itself was very dirty with lots of dead bugs and spider webs. The hotel would do well to take a broom to this area on a daily basis. The only ice machine was located in the main hotel building, which neccesitated additional trips down and up the dirty staircase, followed by a trek accross the parking lot to the breakfast room. Once there, we were never sure if the dispensed ice would be whole or partially melted. The hotel does not have enough parking spaces for the number of rooms it rents. Consequently, we were forced to park in the adjacent restaurant lot. There is a large "EXIT" sign in the parking lot, but whatever you do, don't follow that! The exit was blocked by parked cars! The pool and hot tub closed at 9:00 pm when we were there, due to the fireworks display in town. Prior notice of this would have been appreciated, as we packed towels and swim suits anticipating a relaxing evening in the hot tub. Our room was adequate once we evicted the mosquitoes, ants and spiders that had moved in prior to our arrival. The family we traveled with rented a patio room, which would have been lovely had there not been animal feces on the grass adjacent to the patio, as well as various spider webs on the doorwall. This same family received no maid service in their room, and was offiered a mere 10% discount by the manager for their inconvience. They had also requested a suite, but were given one room with 2 queen beds and a kitchenette area. Overall, we did not feel we received a good value for our money and will definitely stay elsewhere next year. The only positive comment I can write about this hotel is that it has a great location.
