I knew the place would be rustic going into the weekend and Debbie was very sweet but we only saw her when we checked in & that was it, which was fine~we weren't expecting much from her. We appreciated the bottled juices in the frig that we could drink. The packaged snacks were pretty yuck, but again....we weren't thinking we were getting breakfast. I booked this place for its great location only, although the rustic feel was charming. Unfortunately, we got maybe one hour of sleep. The walls might as well be made out of paper. We heard EVERY step by EVERY guest ALL NIGHT LONG! And the noise from the streets was just as bad. 2am-4am there were guests wandering in, being loud & roaming upstairs & downstairs. They also got up by 7am & then did the same for the next 3 hours....so there was no sleeping except from 4-7am if no one moved & the street was silent. So for those 3 hours you were in a half state of sleep. It was miserable. This morning all I could say to my husband was that it was an adventure & laugh. The only sleep possible would be for those who pass out in a drunken stupor. Someone should have told us that!! HA! Oh & the communal bathroom is just a toilet in a tiny closet of a room, my husband & I both agreed that anyone who was overweight would have a nearly impossible time using & getting in & out of this "bathroom"~totally ridiculous!!!! We stayed in the horse room. Liked the decor, not very clean....kinda like in the olden days of the cowboys I suspect. There was also an old faded bottle of baby oil on the sink in the room~we didn't want to even ask what that was for. A folded paper towel, 3 styrofoam cups, handsoap, the baby oil, & a few cloth handtowels were the room amenities. Still a great location but not worth the $115 we paid AT ALL!!! This was our 22 yr wedding anny overnighter too. We enjoyed our dinner at H3 Ranch, music & pool at Filthy McNastys and dancing at Rodeo Exchange tho so the trip was fun otherwise. I guess we can take a nap when we get home to catch up on our sleep ;-) I guess if no one else is in the bldg, maybe midweek one could get a good nights sleep but I would still bring earplugs. On the weekend tho~nothing would help short of being deaf.
