We made reservations here because everything else nearby was booked. Arrived to find no one at the front desk and it took 5 minutes of yelling out for someone before a clerk came out. He couldn't find our reservation. But since he barely spoke English, we doubted he understood the spelling. Another man came finally came. He was extremely rude... More

I should have known, when we saw no cars in the parking lot. It looked like an abandoned property. The lobby smelled of urine, the rooms were dirty with unclean linen, dirty windows, no air conditioning. Need I say, I did not stay there. Quality/Holiday is right down the road. You get what you pay for!!

I'm not picky about hotels. I have no problems staying in dive hotels as long as they're clean. I don't care how old the furniture is or if the carpet is old as long as it's clean. This place was beyond disgusting. It smelled like years of stale cigarettes and mold, and it was filthy. You felt like you needed... More

lost reservation, rude front desk manager who checked us in, was locked out at 2 am and not refunded after having to spend the night elsewhere, was yelled at and called names owner/manager after expressing dissatisfaction and the need of a refund, felt extremely unsafe.

Omg! I can't write much because we checked out as soon as we checked in basically. Me and my family has been on the road from Ga and needed a place and all the other places around Chestertown were booked up. We got our room key and as soon as we stepped in we stepped right back out. It smelt... More

Sleep in your car if you have to, at least you know what's been there. I would have except that I was on a motorcycle. Stayed one night in May because everywhere else was booked. Given the rate I did not expect much but the place was filthy inside and out. Sheets seemed to be clean (I hope!) but the... More

Room seemed to be covered in baby oil? Tables, fridge, tv, microwave, everything! I was afraid to move or touch anything but this is the only hotel in this town. Will not be somewhere I stay again, I would rather sleep in my car in a parking lot. Lots of trash under the bed, and when they say "old fashioned... More

This is by far the WORST place I've stayed in since my first dump back in Europe in 1998! Smelled so BAD of fresh cigarette odor (literally there were ashes on back of toilet!!!!) The carpet, walls, bedding, and bathroom were SO DIRTY and nasty, I didn't even want to touch anything! I slept in full clothing with hood up... More

This hotel was not that great a few years ago but this year hit rock bottom. Bed bugs, 2 rooms from the group didn't have tvs. Filthy carpeting and mold. Not good stay away. It's sad because it's convenient and very reasonable maybe too reasonable.

Well. There was mold in the shower. You need to hold the handle down for 20 seconds to flush the toilet. The carpet is pulled up and just laying there in spots. My husbands back is in pain from the beds. We booked a one queen bed room and got something else. I called ahead to ask if they had... More
