We stayed here maybe 5-6 years ago, and while it was not ever a luxurious hotel it was acceptable, funky but charming. This time, we couldn't get a reservation at the Residence Inn or Inn on the Lake, so we checked into one of the suites on the 2nd floor of Kenilworth, and what a disappointment. We were prepared for funk and even just a Comfort Suite level type of accommodation. What turned out was not acceptable at any standards. The closet floor was filthy with debris from not having ever been vacuumed it seemed (not sure what the stuff was). Stains on ceilings, toilet did not look like it was cleaned, had "stuff" around the rim. Tub rusted out at the bottom, and then get this, not only did the sink in the bathroom not drain, there was another sink in the bedroom, and it was backed up with disgusting looking water that wouldn't drain. I called the front desk, and maybe we will be able to change room tomorrow, but we will likely try to find another hotel if possible. I don't mind old, like linoleum floor, old CRT TVs, (hard to find any hotels with them these days), all this is acceptable since the hotel is inexpensive, but basic cleanliness is to be expected. The lodge had one shot this time with us because our usual hotels were full, unfortunately we will never come back again. A shame as the staff all seems nice, and I would love to support mom and pop type of businesses but there is a minimum level that a hotel should have to live up to. I hope the management would consider closing down some of the rooms and gradually repair one room at a time, and turn this very very tired (near death) grand dame around, she deserves it.
