OK, so I went into this "caveat emptor" right? Nothing could have prepared me for how badly this place is managed, or how run down and downright scary it is. No amount of renovation will ever make it good, just tear it down and start over. Note to self: NEVER go against TripAdvisor again! You do get what you pay for.
Where to even begin, well first my reservation was screwed up, they had me down for Sat/Sun, even though I had reserved Fri/Sat. by phone with a person. The confirmation number didn't make a difference b/c they had the wrong dates in there anyway. A couple checking in next to me was having similar problems.
I was lucky to get a room. The room, oh I wish I had brought my camera. Front facing almost on the street since my reservation was messed up, I had no choice. You enter the door from the outside, and have to walk past other rooms with huge picture windows, like the motel in My Name is Earl. I did not feel safe at all. The wallpaper was peeling in every corner of the room, the hinges on every door were rusted, the room smelled highly deoderized, a sickening sweet smell. The bedspread was that shiny polyester material. I was afraid to get under the covers.
I mean, I guess the room was clean, it was just so dilapildated that clean didn't help. In the end I was able to find a gorgeous B&B for the next day for just $70 more. A taxi to downtown was just $5.00. Definitely not worth stayng here just to be close to town.
