I was looking for something romantic to do for our anniversary and being that we have stayed in B&Bs before, I looked forward to having a nice dinner on-site and having a romantic get-a-away in a jacuzzi room with a view from our balcony.
The room was cramped, full of flies, and the jacuzzi for two was more like a spa tub for one unless you are less than 100 pounds each. The bedspread was beautiful but the blanket underneath was your run of the mill hotel style with cigarette burns and all. The sheets were at best high quality Target brand. The TV was terrible (not that at any other B&B I would even bother with the TV) and the remote didn't work past On/Off and Channel. I could easily hear the goings on in the room next to us. The "river view" from our balcony was more parking lot than river and with a good pair of binoculars or a squint you might catch a bit better glimpse.
The Wheel Room is COMPLETELY overpriced and the service was absolutely terrible. My poor cut of filet mignon was overdone and not even an apology from the snotty and poorly trained waitress. The scallops and walleye were both very fishy and the stuffed mushrooms, while large, were nearly tasteless. For a $92 dinner for two, I expected more than an Applebee's atmosphere, quality and service.
The breakfast the next morning was on par with an upscale Super8, offering a buffet style of overcooked scrambled eggs, potatoes, and a variety of meats included obvious leftover chicken and BBQ ribs. Instead of seating us in the nice room off the lobby or the Wheel Room, they placed us in the dirty bar area and we ate amongst the dead flies and wasps lining the windowsill. The yogurt was dated August 2nd and we were there on September 2nd! They forgot to give us a comp card and the bill would have been nearly $19 for the two of us!
I would NEVER recommend that anyone who has previous B&B experience stay here. If you're looking for an overpriced and awful experience with bad service and food, this place is definitely for you.
You're better off dropping $500 anywhere else than at the Afton House Inn.
