“A nice surprise”

I booked this for an impromtu trip to the ice caves in Leland. Last minute and cheap... AWESOME room, very clean and huge shower. Nice breakfast and super friendly staff. Was great for me and my two kids.

Reviewed February 22, 2014

Because we have stayed at this property before and have enjoyed our stays from the past, I wish I did not have to write this review. We stayed in the heart shaped bubble tub suites each time. Since we were checking out on Thanksgiving day, we were trying to help housekeeping by collecting all the towels and removing the sheets from the bed. To our horror, we found two spots on the mattress pad from the previous guests. I have tried several times to see what the management/owners would do, but I have received no response from them. One time we were told by "Todd" that it was their housekeeping practice to "inspect" the mattress pad after each stay and only launder it when it looked soiled. Since learning we slept on a bed soiled from the couple that stayed there some time before us, we now have no desire to visit a motel, especially this one, for a getaway time again. If we ever stay out again, we will make sure we strip down the bedding before ever laying down on the bed again!
