I was without power during the October storm and thought I'd be without a 2nd night
so my son looked online and this was the ONLY place available. It is about 5 minutes from
my house, but when I saw it I knew it wouldn't be my cup of tea, even cheap as it was.
They asked for my i/d. (standard) but they made a copy of it which I did NOT like but I decided I would ask for it back when I left the next morning. Thank goodness I had a room in the back away from Rt. 46 which probably would be quite noisy. The room was OPEN when I entered and I quickly checked to make sure no one was there. The tv was very old and small, the
bureau had one drawer missing and was probably vintage 70's (and not good 70's). The table
was banged up and old. The mirror in the 'dressing area' needed resilvering. The room SEEMED clean but the bed had no mattress protector (yuck!) and the sheets were both flat sheets and didn't fit well and came off in the night. The next morning I asked for my copy of my driver's license back and they said they 'keep it for their files.' I told them I would never be back. One of the men volunteered to cross out the i.d. number and I asked him to also cross out my birthdate. I told them I didn't understand why they needed to keep a copy since my credit card has a picture of myself on it. I probably would stay in my cold house if the power ever goews out again and this is the only thing available. Oh yeah, 1 teensy bar of soap, some kind of hideous packet of shampoo (I didn't use), no tv channel info (if you were unfamiliar to the area). This is as basic as it gets. I told my son in Brooklyn 'I feel like I'm waiting for my customer/s to arrive, if ya get my drift!'
If you have to stay here, ask for a room at the back.
