My husband and I recently stayed at the Old Town Inn. First, I found the staff helpful and cordial when we checked in. We expected an economy style hotel but were rather put off by the musty, deodorizer smell of the room when we first entered it. The room was located in a separate part of the hotel a little ways down the street. The queen bed was OK, (had a torn, worn bedspread), but the room was small. I would suggest upgrading to a larger room with more space and a refrigerator (we didn't have one). The first night we realized the air conditioning unit would not turn off so we had to unplug it each night despite assurances from the manager that a work order would be processed immediately. The second night loud music from the room next door ruined an otherwise peaceful evening. By 11:30 pm, after complaining over the phone several times,I told the staff in person I would call the police if they would not take care of the loud noise. I think the music stopped on its own around midnight. The next night we spotted a little cockroach scurrying across the dresser. My husband took care of it, but we were starting to regret our stay. On the up side the breakfast was good, the pool nice with lovely plants and flowers, and we were getting used to the quaint, old fashioned cramped quarters. Had it not been for the strange smell (bug spray maybe?), loud music, broken air unit, and the cockroach, our stay at the Old town Inn would have been perfect. The moral of this story is be prepared for the unexpected.
