Stopped here for the night as most other hotels in the area had full vacancy. Owner was friendly and helpful but our experience here wasn't as advertised on the sign outside. The sign mentioned "Clean" rooms. Well, when we checked in, and pulled back the bedsheet, the first thing we noticed that the sheet was on the outside, and the flannel blanket was on the bottom - we had to remake the bed before going to bed so that the sheet was what we were sleeping against. The next thing we noticed were stains on the sheets. Also the bathroom sink had grime in it - kind of an orangy color which looked like the residue of someone's makeup. It had not been cleaned since the previous visitor had stayed there. The real kicker was when we woke up in the morning though - we found 2 bright red bed bugs that had just feasted on us which exploded in a burst of blood when we squished them. Also on the mattress were 2 blood stains that weren't there when we went to bed - we must have rolled over on some other bed bugs after they had dined on us. Makes me shudder just thinking about it. Now we are back home and are taking all of our travel clothes to the laundromat - we don't want to bring these guys into our home. And we have a nice souvenier from our road trip - itchy bites and red welts. We will not be back!
