The communication between the owner and myself prior to arriving was a good indicator of how things were going to be - I should have trusted my instincts. When a property doesn't have its own website or even photos up on other sites, it's never a good sign. Owner was often confused on the phone (mixing up dates, names, claiming I had never sent emails when I did) and we were never quite sure we would have a room until we arrived (she never even took a deposit or payment info prior to us arriving). The place itself was a little worn - did not look like guests stayed here regularly. Carpeting was stained. We were not provided a key to the front door and the owners insisted that the door needn't be locked as Orangeville was "a safe town." That was the last straw.
We ended up staying elsewhere. We just didn't feel safe or comfortable with the whole situation.
