The Pine Lodge Cabins are in dire need of repair. There are so many places to stay in this area please try another!
During our stay one guest got stuck in thier bedroom when the door knob broke. We had to go to the office to report it. She was in there for about 45 mins to an hour. She could actually exit the building through a back door but at 80 could not accompany the rest of us in the livingroom b/c she was unable to climb the stairs.
Our heater would not work. I walked over and reported this to the office. They came over with pliers in hand telling us how to get it to work. So this apparently has been an on going problem they have refused to repair. We could never get to a comfortable temp b/c it was hard to adjust with pliers.
The fridge was so cold everything froze. You could not get it to adjust. It also leaked. we had to place towels infront of it and clean water up each morning when we got up.
The bathroom facuet has a major drip that is very annoying to those sleeping in the livingroom and 1st bedroom since the bathroom is in the middle. The toliet was broke in this bathroom as well. We finally just left the lid off the tank so you could flush the toliet each time you went.
The beds were terrible. The king size bed is litterly bowing. It visibly sags in the middle. The hid-a-bed is even worse. Plus the couch has rips in it. I did not lay on the queen size bed but my Grandmother and Great-aunt said it was extremely uncomfortable. I can say that the bed linens were clean.
The bathroom was reasonably clean however the smaller bathroom had a strong urine smell. And the large bedroom smelled of animals. I did not smell this is the remainder of the cabin.
Each room has a step down (for a total of 3 steps). The older people in our group (80 and 77) had trouble with these. However the rest of us (55, 30, 13, and 2) seem to navigate them just fine. However, on the step from the livingroom to the hallway there is a soft spot in the floor. You had to step over this spot or it would pop and you felt like you were going to fall through.
The last complaints are that the carpets were so dirty all our socks where black on the bottom. So they really need cleaned or replaced. There were small black bugs around the back door and spider all over the place inside. So a contract with a pest control company is something they are def. lacking!
Over all the place was falling apart but we enjoyed shopping and spending time with each other for the 2 nights we stayed. We will just never stay there again! Happy Travels to all!!
