My boyfriend and I decided to save some money on our hotel and took a chance with this place. We had room 201, which the owner told us was her favorite room. The pictures on their website showed a warm, cozy, northwoods-style room, but that wasn’t what we got at all. The carpet reminded me of artificial turf, the furniture and beds/covers were like a typical “cheap” motel room, the screen door out to the balcony didn’t close very tightly and there were dead gnats plastered all over it, cobwebs and spiders in every corner of the room, uncomfortable beds, very old microwave, fridge tended to freeze things, no coffee-maker. Luckily it wasn't hot out because there was no air conditioning. Taking a shower the next morning was a nightmare… the temp would alternate from ice cold to scalding hot in a second. The owner thought maybe too many people in other rooms were trying to take showers at the same time. We ended up taking our showers in the evening, which was a little better. The towels weren’t very soft, some of them were stained or had holes in them. The WiFi was basically non-existent, even though we were in the room closest to the office.
Sadly, this turned out to be a not-so-good experience and we don’t plan to come back. The view and sound of the waves were nice, but that didn’t really make up for the lack of a quality room.
