The hotel is old and a little creepy but I'm also not used to staying in this price range of hotels, so part of that is my own fault!
The bed was "wavy", and the room was also a little creepy but I was okay with it once I adjusted my expectations.
Then, just as we were climbing into bed for the night, I saw a mouse run across the floor! My husband went to the front desk, and the manager told him that there are mice all over the hotel because it's harvest time and the hotel is next to a field. He offered to give my husband a box trap to put in our room! Haha! My husband said, "Don't tell my wife you said that please. Just switch us to a different room and we will hope she doesn't see any more mice." (Thank you, hubby!)
Anyway, we switched rooms and thankfully I didn't see another mouse, but I was freaked out the whole rest of the time. (BTW, my husband told me after check-out what the manager had said.)
The waffle maker wasn't clean, so the waffles were covered in black stuff.
The location is convenient though, and if you don't care about mice or a nice breakfast and just want a low price, this might be just the place for you! Also, the pool did look pretty nice compared to the rest of the hotel.
