We got stuck because it was the weekend, and we hadn't booked ahead, and all the other places in this lovely town were full. So we were stuck here. Our own stupid fault I guess. All the reviews you rad are true. $178 and our own personal experience was the shower tap coming off in my hand leaving hot water... More

The location is fantastic but for the fact the place is run like a tenement in Mumbai. The price is right if you like threadbare towels, slovenly housekeeping inside and out and the haunting suspicion they wash the sheets and pillow cases every two weeks whether they need them or not. Continental breakfast is a gallon jug of milk set... More

Don't stay hear folks? You're better off sleeping on a park bench. TV didn't work. The lamp on the nightstand didn't work. The refrigerator didn't work. The shower was filthy. Mold and mildew on the ceiling of it. The grout was solid black with grime in some areas. We stayed 2 nights and requested that there be no maid service... More

Oh Dear God this was just about the grossest place ever. I had read reviews beforehand (not before booking, unfortunately) and brought my own sheets and pillow cases so that made it bearable for one night. This place seemed like it had not been cleaned in years. The towels are gray and threadbare. The room was hilariously painted and caulked... More

Filthy dirty and run down. Wish I had slept in the car. Had to ask for soap, shampoo and kleenex. Cold water sink faucet didn't work, clock didn't work. Several long hairs in the shower. Mold in shower, filthy toilet and carpet. Coffee maker but no coffee. Dresser but no handles to open the drawers. Could hear the entire conversation... More

Stay away from this hotel! Location definitely does not guarantee a reputable find for lodging. What could be a charming stop, is ruined by the attitude of new ownership that has "zero" regard for cleanliness, customer service, or pride in owning an establishment. Filth, neglect, and denial describe this place. We were afraid to sit on anything for fear of... More

We have stayed here in the past and it has been degrading to a point of just pure nastiness. The rooms were disgusting and filthy. The bathroom smelled musty and the mildew smell was overpowering. These rooms are not worth the money. Don't let the outside deceive you - absolutely disgusting place.

Driving up, this reminded me of so many motels my family stayed in over the years. Except for old, worn, carpet, it was clean and simply a place to sleep. The electrical outlets did not work for the most part and we were concerned about how this did or did not meet building codes. However, we settled in for what... More
