“Pass this one by”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2006

We stayed at the Iron Horse for two nights July 31 & Aug 1. The clerk charged us up front for both nights. The room was not very clean. The air conditioner barely worked as the grill and filter were covered with a thick layer of dust. Ours was a non-smoking room but the the odor in the halls made you try to hold your breath. Not only the smell of cigarette smoke but something else one would not want to imagine. There was a small refrigerator but the door would not close due to the ice build up in the freezer. There was an inground pool but it had not been opened. This would have been a great asset, especially in the summer heat. We checked the beds carefully for critters but found only stains on the mattress.

One good point was that there was plenty of parking. There obviously were not many guests except for those in the room above us who let their kids run and jump until after 11PM.

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — noise in the room above us, dirty, air comditioning didn't work well, uncomfortable beds, dirty mattresses, ...
