Went for a weekend getaway and left early. The staff was helpful and polite. Our room was old, outdated, and smelled of smoke/must/mildew. I was afraid to have my children play on the carpet. There were burn holes in the chairs and the rug. The chairs were cloth and stained. The rugs were torn up and there was dust, crumbs, and garbage from previous guests when we arrived. The mattresses were stained, uncomfortable, and were not protected by mattress covers. Showers were covered in mildew and the bathroom sink was outside of the bathroom... The window of our room was hazed because the seal was broken. We had a view of the back of Shaws supermarket. The outdoor pool was filled with bugs, grass, and sand. The gate to the pool was falling apart and it could no longer be locked. There was duck poop all around the beach near the lake. We couldn't wait to get home!!! It was $230 per night and we felt it was worth no more than $70 a night... We had to wash everything when we got home today because the room left an awful odor on everything. It looked like the lakeside rooms had a nice view, however, I would not take a chance wasting money on this hotel ever again!!!!! Very disappointed and happy to be back in my clean home!!!!!
