First I must admit I am jaded and already mad at this place. I bought a hotel deal on Living Social which included a bottle of wine upon arrival; however, when I checked in they would not honor the promotion. (Although it was paid for ahead of time. Deceptive advertising?) They did have a nice bottle of wine set up in the room for a cost of $35.00. That was a bit fishy to me. They offered us two coupons for a "glass" of wine at another restaurant facility miles away. Odd. The place is definitely dated with the cute "retro" touches nice but they don't pay attention to details. The bathroom shower curtain had a nickel size make-up stain (room 107) and the tile on the floor of the shower needed a good chlorine scrub as it was not clean. The vanity area was cute but who knew that the metal lunchbox had washcloths in it? Maybe a sign would be helpful. The fridge and microwave were handy. They do include a vcr, and record player (yes a usable one) so if you are inclined to bring a few records, you're in luck. The room is painted lime green and has some little decoration touches I found amusing. (Check out the odd shaped pillow that look like hotdog rolls tied with twine.) The one added plus that changed this room from poor to average was the private little fenced in deck with had for our dog. It had a nice lounger, three chairs and a table looking out to the yard in the back. It was nice and convenient for our dog. All and all, don't pay over a hundred for this hotel and make sure they include all the extra's promised in the fine print. Would I go to this hotel again. NO WAY!
