The oily rag that was left on the bed served as an indicative symbol of our stay at this inn.
We stayed one night in the "Bear" room as we traveled cross country. Photos online of the inn make it look quaint, but unfortunately it's run down, antiquated and with the exception of the linens, didn't seem to have been cleaned thoroughly for quite some time. I opened the kitchenette cabinet to get a glass out for water, and it stuck to the cabinet where it was set, as an example.
Carpet didn't seem to have been vacuumed for at least a few weeks, and the bath floors hadn't been wiped down/mopped for at least as long.
The bed was uncomfortable, the mattress had zero support.
The inside of the door to the room has some kind of oily grease on it that you don't want to get on your hands when closing it. Don't know exactly what type of grease it is...
The staff was friendly, I'll give them that. It's also in a great spot logistically. But I would never recommend this place to a friend.
