We've been going here for ten years now, and each summer this place gets more run down.
We were happy with it at first for the pool is large and the location great for going to places like the American Players Theatre, Frank Lloyd Wright sights, Cave of the Mounds, and bike trails.
But it is now a motel that is sinking fast. It is dark and dreary. The bedspreads are not clean -- and are at least ten years old. There are few outlets in each room -- and most of the ones they have are outdated and loose. Trying to charge my cell phone is as much of a challenge as trying to keep my curling iron plug in the socket ( propping it up on a book works well ). The housekeeping staff never replenished our plastic cups, soaps, or coffee cups during the one week stay this year.
The "breakfast" is a joke. It is usually delivered late and consists of cold bread. No juice. No milk. No fruit. Nothing else.
We used to have a Friday fish fry in their small restaurant but now the grease odor is too much for us. Besides, the price went up to $15 a plate this year. Their lobby used to have a gift shop, but this year it looks like a depleted dollar store with empty shelves.
The sad part is that this motel is located in a pretty area and yet the staff does little yard work or landscaping. The bushes outside the windows have overgrown like monsters -- we couldn't even see out our ground floor room. They don't even move their warped picnic table when they cut the lawn. And the vegetation is so big and untrimmed that at night you can't see the entrance to the driveway from the road. It is like they don't care.
What this place needs is a professional makeover. I hope a company like Quality Inn or LaQuinta finds this gem and gets it in shape! It has such potential!
