“Smelly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2010

Don't confuse this place with the other Handys Suites, which seems to have some OK reviews. Our room smelled like there was something dead under the floorboards. That seems to be common in the first-floor rooms (had some friends in another room), although the higher floors are better. The furniture is falling apart, literally.

Staying here is like crashing in your sketchy friend's basement.

But a couple of good points. First, the owners have an arrangement with the Days Inn a couple doors down the road, so we can use their wireless internet (which is strong) and their pool (which is pretty strong, too). The location is right there at the NB 89 exit for Rte 15. And although given the state of the furniture and room I was expecting bugs, it was creditably clean, with fresh linen.
