We stayed this past weekend at Peter's and were very disappointed. We chose Peter's because of the close location to a family wedding we were attending and we needed a place that could sleep nine family members. We arrived late Friday and were greeted with musty smells and sand on the carpets and floors as if the place had not been cleaned since the last visitors. While we had enough space for our group (plenty of beds and bathrooms), the bedding definitely could be updated. The next morning we noticed lots of spiders and wallpaper falling off the walls in every room. The whole place needed updating. The hot water ran out after the second shower so the rest of us had very cold showers. The cleaning people stopped by and we asked them to come back at noon (as all of us were getting ready to go to the wedding). They said they were understaffed (probably explains the dirtiness of everything) and that they wouldn't be able to clean, make beds or drop off fresh towels. We would have been ok with this had we not been told that we would need to pay 6% gratuity for cleaning! When we brought up our concerns with the "owner" the next day nothing was done to discount our room or provide us with an incentive to come back another time for a better experience. Considering the cost of staying here and the condition the place is in, we will not stay here again when we are back for family functions.
