The bad: I called about a month in advance and booked my room. They requested my credit card info, which I gave them. When I arrived for check-in, I was told I wasn't on the books. Sure, I was kind of pissed. When you're six hours away from home and on a budget, the last thing you want to hear is the possibility of not having somewhere to sleep when you KNOW you booked it. The woman was pretty rude to me, practically accusing me of not booking the room ahead of time. Then told me to calm down when I was getting upset because she did have a room.
After paying her (and she commented that I must have called first because I had the correct amount already in my hand), she asked if I was climbing. I said yes since I was in town to hit 3 4,000 footers in Baxter State Park. She acted like I was ridiculous, said she would never do it, and became visibly irritated when, answering her question, I said I was hiking alone, like I have no experience or business whatsoever even going out in the woods period. It was a big turn off.
The carpet on the way to my room was impressive. It looked like they had dragged a bloody body out of one room and down the hall. There was quite a large stain on the carpet. Not impressed. The carpet of my room was so nasty that I refused to walk around barefoot. Had to wear my awesome bunny slippers the whole time. Not impressed. Some of the towels had holes in them, but I should have expected that seeing the condition of the floors.
Saturday night I had to turn the a/c fan on around 10.30-11pm because people outside in the hallway were being so loud. Thought that was kind of rude. In the dining room, since it was fairly empty midweek, you get to listen to the staff's conversations. I'd rather have a quiet meal to be honest. Don't need to hear your life story. The owner's kids were also running around a lot. I wonder if the owners live there too? I didn't ask.
The good: The restaurant wasn't bad. Food came really quickly and in a large portion, exactly what a hiking girl needs! The bed was pretty comfortable, no lumps or anything. The a/c worked. The shower was hot. It's not that far from Baxter State Park, excellent location actually.
The ugly: How the heck do they have such a good rating on Trip Advisor? I was so totally not impressed. All in all, I would not stay here again. Don't really want to deal with the rude owners again. I'd rather sleep in my car.
