Please, please pick somewhere else. My Husband and I were looking for a quick getaway, and decided to stay at the Victorian Candle based on its reviews. WHAT A MISTAKE. To Start with we called ahead to see if they have anything available, we were told yes and that reservations would not be necessary. Upon arrival the front door was locked I knocked and called again the owner said he was there and 10 min. later came to the door. He then took me in to the dining room to fill out paper work. Up to this point things were going splendidly. He then took me in to the basement which was not clean hair and dirt on the steps ect., but the place was quite and it was mid day so I thought maybe the cleaning crew just hadn’t made it to the basement yet. He then took me to the room and showed me how to work the key pad door which he check twice to make sure it worked explaining that they change the lock codes once and month and that they were just changed. (Glad I came when I did, I was still concerned enough to use the dead bolt) At this point I inquired about breakfast and was told that it would be served in the dining room at 9:00 am , he asked if I had plans and I explained that we would need to be leaving at 10:30am to catch a charter boat. He stated that we would have plenty of time. When we got unpacked I wanted a shower to wash off the day at Calvert Cliffs Beach the shower had hairs in it, a large hole in the wall, did not drain well and did not get as hot as I would have liked. The toilet ran all night and had to be held to flush. The bed was stiff and there were hairs under the pillow. The hot tub was not filled with water. There was no ice to be found in the entire place. If you have a question there is no one there working to answer it. The next morning at 8:50 I made my way up stairs where a number of guessed were gathering in the dining room. My husband packed the car and moved it around front then joined us, at 9:15 there was still no food out so I walked to the kitchen and asked if it would be much longer. I was told it was coming out now. At 9:48 there was still no food to be seen and the owner brought out plates saying it would be a few more min. However we did not have a few more min and had to leave. I was upset to say the least but we had to leave or we would miss the boat. After getting home I wrote to the owner and have yet to receive any reply. Please pick one of the dozen other lovely B&B in the area.
