I checked in Thursday evening and wasnt too impressed. Its old. The whole unit leans down hill. When you walk across the floor everything rattles. The bed is about 20 years old. Oh well...it was just me and it would do.
Friday evening the neighbors arrived. I went to bed at 9...was awoken at 10 to a thud, thud, thud. My bed was shaking ever so slightly with each thud. All they were doing was walking around in their room getting settled. I couldnt hear any voices. I finally fell back asleep...and again was awoken at midnight when the rest of their party arrived. Thud, thud, thud. The whole room shakes.
I had to change my plans for hiking on Saturday to something that didnt require as much time...as I had planned on getting up at 4am. I didnt end up waking up till 830.
No one in office at 9. Went and did my hike...came back...no one in the office at 4pm. 5pm I found the owner very defensive when I requested a refund. He would not give me a refund for my night of misery. I should have told him at midnight about the problem he said. So he could do what? I wasnt switching rooms at midnight, and you cant tell guests they cant walk around their room. We argued back and forth and he gave me a refund for my final night there. I packed my stuff and headed down the road and found somewhere else. IT WAS WORTH IT.
There is a reason why this place is so cheap! Anyday now and the place will crumble to the ground.
Also.....they housekeeper will make your bed...and thats it. Do not expect your room to be vaccumed, your trash to be emptied, your sink to be cleaned, or new towels to be supplied.
