Came to town for the mystery dinner train. Always stay at B&B's or Inns. Listen to the reviews for this place. Absolutely the worst I've ever stayed in. The desk clerk was far from pleasant to everyone. She answered the phone several times and not once looked up to even say just a minute. Were told by the manager when booking the reservation we could check in early if the room was available and we also were given and emailed a confirmation for the AAA rate. The clerk was very curt about these were not the rules and there were no notes in our file. Proceeded to show her the email and she was not interested. Went to our room (NBC room) and the horror began. Even with all the lights on it was so dark (obviously good reason)... the bathroom smelled worse than a public restroom, room had a musty smell, the shower did not work nor did the tub stopper so you had to sit in the tub and wash up in the running water, the TV did not work. We stayed despite my better judgment as it was only one night. Went back later to the lobby to ask directions and the same girl was there. The railroad is one of the main attractions and she was clueless how to get to it and showed little interest in helping us. Oh, it continues. You get a complimentary breakfast at the restaurant next door. Take my word go to a fast food place for your breakfast. You would do much better. It consisted of cereal, dried biscuits, a pastry (surprisingly tasty) and coffee/juice. They do have a buffet which was quite popular. We had also gone to it the night before for a snack - food horrible. The plus side is the staff are very nice. My advice check out the Super 8 in the area.
