My husband and I booked the "Rustic Cabin". It was the most terrible place that I have EVER stayed. I thought the cabin would be set away from the rest of the facility but it was right next to another unit. That would have been okay except the cabin was aweful. Rustic makes me think of an old mountain cabin, not a fancy sort of place. This place might be old but it was dirty, unmaintained and shabby. Just being old doesn't make it rustic. It was carpeted and the carpeting was stained everywhere. The windows were covered by flour sacks and that would be okay if they were cleaning and hanging from rods but they were dusty, stained and dirty and many of the wall brackets for the rods were broken, some were just laying on the floor. If it had ever been cleaned someone might have noticed them on the floor. The sleeper sofa was 80's era and was so grungy that I barely had courage to put my luggage on it, let alone think about sleeping in it. The bed was worn out, low quality and the foot of the bed was higher than the head of the bed. The drab comforter and few throw pillows looked like they had not been cleaned in a long time. I just prayed the sheets were laundered and I dared not to look to close to find out. The modern kitchen must have meant it had electricity because there was nothing special about it at all. After seeing the rest of this place I didn't dare use any of the eqiupment in there. The bathroom was the worst. The towels were faded, thin and the white colors had turned to gray. There was a sign by the toilet to not flush paper products. We were supposed to wipe and toss THAT in the trash can? The shower consisted of an attached metal wall 3 feet way from the corner walls. The shower head dripped constantly. The very worst part was that the shower NEVER drained. It was so gross that I had to wear my shoes in there when showering. The standing water was 2-3 inches deep at all times. And you know what? Tthe person at the desk KNEW the shower didn't drain! They know what poor care and upkeep this cabin has had and yet they keep booking people into it instead of taking care of it. I can't believe we paid good money to stay in this wreck. I'm not a prissy person and have spent many trips sleeping in a sleeping bag in a tent. I would have rather done that on this trip than stay in this place.
Truly, this was the worst place I have ever experienced. Staying at the Super 8 would have been 100 times better. The river by Dripping Springs was beautiful but you can see the river from lots of other places.
