Every one has different expectations and comfort levels. We wish we had stayed elesewere. The owners were freindly but the place has seen better days. I found the lack of internet access dissapointing, shame on me for not noticing it prior to making reservations. The location was ok and quiet, the place was clean but worn out. The furnishings were cheap and dated. The bedding was old and faded, but clean. The towels were the see thru variety. The air conditioner was one of those $88.00 units found at discount stores and was grossly undersized for the space, we were hot. The refrigerator would not cool. The towel bar was missing. My wife and kids were not impressed with the shower. there were spare blankets on a plywood shelf that were absolutly shot. They reminded me of my dogs blanket with fuzz knots, but they were clean. They do offer a microwave and toaster oven but they had a sign posted "no cooking in the room" , I thought it a bit strange... The envelope on the counter with "Gratuities are appreciated" on it, was just a bit tacky. We noticed the art on the walls were miss matched and tacky. If you like velvet Elvis you might not have a problem with the art. They would have been better having nothingon the walls I learned a lesson that Trip Advisor is not perfect and the reviews come from people of all walks of life. I am sure to anyone on a tight budget the place would be O.K. But I beleive there is much better lodging in the area with the amenities most middle class travlers desire, but expect to pay more than the $78.00 a night at Two Rivers charges. You get what you pay for!
