Reviewed August 29, 2012

Stayed during the week at Lodge on Main. Except for expensive price we had to pay for room only booking, everything else was terrible. Our room was dirty with a smelly taste and the bathroom was awful, with no toilet paper nor towels. Called room service, but these tell us it's a self help guest house. Tried the breakfast the next morning as we have to wait for an appointment, but this were even worst. The cereal was old, the milk sour and I even got hair in my food. Best of all I ordered scramble eggs with a cockroach in it !!!

Room Tip: If you like dirty rooms and old food, go for it!
