“Bugs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Bugs....
From the outside it looked quaint. On the inside is was dismal. We decided we better check the bed for bugs, and sure enough, when I pulled the bedspread off, a bug was right there on the pillow! YUCK! There was no way were were going to stay there. The owner gave us a refund, without argument. The husband told me he couldn’t control the bugs.......

It may be cheap but save your money. The rooms were dingy and had a lovely stench to them. We also had to deal with the bugs that also call this place home. They were everywhere and I'm sure this place had bedbugs. Didn't feel comfortable sleeping on top of the bedding with sheets from home. The lady up front was the rudest person I have ever encountered in the hotel industry. She obviously hates all the tourists that keep her disgusting place in business, and has no problem showing it.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

This hotel is not for you if you are looking for great amenities. But if you want a very basic room from which to launch your fun activities this place has a great location at a price that cant be beat. Basically this retired polish couple from Chicago built a bunch of little one room houses in their back yard and a hot dog stand in their front yard and they rent out the rooms and throw in a free hot dog with each nights stay. I have stayed here three times and find it the perfect place for a dells vacation on the cheaps.

We checked the dells website to choose our places to stay and see on our family vacation. We found what looked like a nice quiet motel. The prices on the site are about half what they are when you call for a room. We rented 2 rooms for 2 nights. I found the bathrooms to have large quantities of mold, including black mold growing on the back of the bathroom door. That night we chose to watch TV, but the TV remote did not work for the TV... none of the buttons, but the light worked on the remote and the batteries worked in the camera we brought... The airconditioner was so loud that we could not run it at night so we had to take a chance by leaving the windows open all night. The next day we went out for breakfast and some shopping, came back about 11:30 am and the rooms had not been made up yet, we went back out and came back again by 10:00 pm and the rooms still had not been made up, which left no clean towels for showering... and also, they only had 2 towels for each room with 4 people per room.
The website for this place looks nice, but don't spen your money there... it is not worth it by far.
