Was in town for a class reunion & booked this room just a day or so before. We got there late to check in & it looked sketchy. When you go to the "lobby", it smells old & musty, but I'm thinking maybe it's just the lobby. There is a sign over a phone that says you have to ring them to check in. (They live next door) The man who came to check me in didn't have my name on the list. I told him my name several times & he kept saying he had one for Cindy, but not my name. Then his wife came out & they discussed this as if I wasn't standing right there. I finally told them that I was Cindy & they gave us our room. It was my room, I'm sure, they just wrote the name down wrong.
We went to our room & I couldn't believe I was going to have to sleep there, but I knew I would probably have had enough cocktails that I wouldn't care. It was a small room with 2 beds, poorly placed. Smoke permeated the room. I don't know if there was someone next door smoking or not. I think it just smelled that way. The bedding looked old & I kept thinking if I looked under the bed there would be a body. The bathroom was very small & outdated, but there was an actual toilet. There was also a single shower, but there was one of those things you put on the floor so you don't slip, but it had these bristles on it, I guess so you could scrub your feet. It was all yellowed. I would never let my feet touch that nasty thing.
We dropped our bags there, even though I thought they wouldn't be there when we got back & went to our reunion. I made sure I had plenty of cocktails so that I could sleep comfortably. We got back to our room really late & it smelled worse than the bar we just came from. When I woke up, well, I was just glad I woke up....I peeked out the back curtain & lo & behold the sun was out & there was a beautifully landscaped yard in view. It gave me hope. For a minute I thought I was going to be involved in some murder for hire plot or I was going to become a crack addict just from being there.
I would never recommend this place & I will never go back. Anytime we are on a trip & we stay somewhere I insist that it be nice. And if it's not as nice as I would like, I remind myself how it could be as bad as The Crossroads. You get what you pay for.
