Our room had old, old drapes and a bedspread with holes, disgustingly stained pillows, wet carpet where the ceiling had leaked, moldy shower with broken faucet, a fan for a.c., a flimsy lock on the door and no bolt, bars on the window and the smoke alarm was missing. Some of the other patrons made noise all night long. I... More

The room was DIRTY. The carpet at the foot of the queen sized bed smelled of vomit and was sticky dirty everywhere. The two chairs were stained. I found a cannabis seed in my night stand drawer, and the other night stand was nailed shut. We ran out of "Kleenex" after one use and, upon lifting the empty box out... More

This was the worst experience ever. I booked this hotel thru Expedia (a trusted site) and it was horrible. The carpet was torn and had holes all over it. It was so stained and smelled disgusting. I was shocked when I plugged in my hot iron, there was no grounded outlets. The bathroom- the door would not close, the towels... More

The best thing in the room was the Jacuzzi tub big enough to hold four people.Not that we had four people. The bed was king size. The refrige,held the Microwave, and it held the coffee maker. The closet was a shelve with rod across to hang maybe four garments. Under the shelf was the desk. So couldn't hang dress or... More

This place is just the pits! They gave us one queen bed for 3 people and then had the nerve to say we could have a king bed for $50 more! It was already way overpriced! The room had a disgusting odor to it and was the size of a shoebox! It was falling apart and filthy dirty. The icing... More

I just stayed at the Pinewood Inn and found the rooms to be clean, cozy, and comfortable. The hotel is rustic, I happen to like wood and rustic so it was perfect for my needs. For the price you get a small frig, microwave, and coffee maker in your room. I have traveled a lot and getting these items for... More

The place is cheap. I have stayed in cheaper with better update. So there is no excuse y the owner cant do better. I have to put the coffee maker on the floor to make the coffee. The plugs are at odds locations. You unplug the fridge or microwave to use coffee maker. And put it on the floor. Something... More

AVOID AT ALL COSTS, UNSAFE HOTEL!!! My girlfriend and I stayed there over the 4th of July weekend. Upon arrival, I noticed that the guy at the front desk was rude, and acted like he didn't want to be there. When we approached the room (#2) I noticed that that the front screen door had been previously broken into, and... More

Rude, awful woman at check in. Arguing with me about my conf number, doubted we had a reservation, and so much more. Room was beyond compare - filth, mold, cockroaches - DISGUSTING. I would rather sleep in an alley - safer and cleaner environment than this hole. Woman barged into room as we were leaving - inspecting, insisting on more... More
