Traveling with pets, there weren't a lot of options in this area, and we booked this property with hopes of it being ok...NOT!! Even my dogs didn't want to be there! The property itself is nothing to look at. The rooms were disgusting. Bulbs were out over the vanity, towel racks falling out of the walls. The phone was so dirty, I wouldn't even pick it up before disinfecting it. The bedding was grimy feeling, and the towels and washclothes were stained...In the bathroom there was an old stained shower curtain covering the mildewed shower wall - nice suprise when I pulled that across. Our room also had mold growing up the bathroom walls, about 18 inches in height. I have photos!! We pulled the bathroom door shut when we weren't in there so that we weren't breathing any of that. My parents shared another room at the same location, and their room wasn't much better. This property advertises free internet connection - neither of our rooms could connect. I went to the front desk and asked about it, and was met with blank stares, and was asked what rooms we were in. When I told her, she said both of those rooms should be able to connect. (What does that mean...??? Some rooms can't connect??? Really???) I told her again that we could not. Again, she simply stated that I should be able to. No help there. We were traveling with a moving truck/car in tow, plus another vehicle and pets. Would have been nice to be able to stay in contact with friends and family to let them know we were ok. Again, didn't want to touch the phone. When I complained about the mold, they just looked at me like I had antennas. Really - the dirtiest, most disgusting place I've ever been. At checkout, I complained again about the mold and dirt, and asked for a refund (their handwritten "NO REFUNDS" policy strategically placed where you check in being right in front of me). She stared at me blankly and said she would give me $5 or $10 off ...???? Wow, how wonderful of them to offer. This property is not fit, or healthy to stay in, and needs to be condemmed. Truly, we wish we had read the reviews before going there - we would've chosen to drive another 100 miles if necessary to find a suitable place.
