We booked 2 nights but left after one, as early as we could get ready the next morning. The Ranch Hand Bunkhouse was our selection based on photos on the web site and good reviews. In summation, the place was dirty, the amenities very outdated and the cost was way out of line.
Specifically, the floor and rugs were dirty; the refrigerator, though working, was filthy on the outside, like it had just recently been brought in from living on the porch; the bathroom accommodations were so-so (toilet so close to the wall you have to sit sideways and the shower so small you could barely move in it) and we didn't even try the jacuzzi because the water smells so bad. Described as a jacuzzi for two, I doubt we'd have been able to move around IF we'd gotten in the thing. Outfitted with a hotel-type floor A/C and a somewhat ineffective window unit in the bedroom, we had to keep them both running at 68 to keep the temp down enough to sleep without sweating. Really old TVs and no DVD player made watching our movies only possible with our laptop we just happened to bring along. Living area furniture was uncomfortable, to boot.
But the icing on the cake: a scorpion ran across the floor, right in front of my bare feet. Now, given the dry conditions and the place being in the country, it wouldn't have been a shocker to see a scorpion outside, but in the house? And there was no mention of the possibility of running into a scorpion; had we been warned, I certainly wouldn't have taken my shoes off. I am thankful I didn't get stung.
Fairly recently, we stayed at a different B&B, a little southwest of Brenham and I guess that place spoiled us. We'd have gone there, but it was booked solid this weekend; hence, we took what we thought was a small risk and selected Mariposa for our getaway. I guess the odds are that you're going to hit a dud every once in awhile, and that we did. The other place was amazing and COST LESS. So we really expected Mariposa to be at least as nice, with the slightly higher per night price, and we were sorely let down.
After speaking to the innkeepers, they offered to comp the room, but since we stayed the one night, we felt it fair to pay for that night in exchange for a refund for the second night. So a plus with regard to fairness on the innkeeper's part.
