When they say "off the beaten path" they mean off the beaten path and headed straight into hickville. The "close trolley stop" is actually about 3 blocks away from the hotel and that's a walk straight through an area that you should probably be carrying mace through. By the time you even get to the trolley stop, you're in downtown. We were told we would have a fridge and a microwave..no such thing. The other side of the cottage was rented that had the kitchenette and when they made coffee, we heard it, when they sneezed, we heard it, when they yelled, we heard it!! PAPER THIN WALLS! There were no dead bolts, only real keys for a closet door type lock. There was a yard sale going on run by the owners the next morning, while the manager was nice enough to knock 20 bucks off our total for getting lost, they were pretty rough looking people...nice but rough. The room did not get cleaned the entire 3 days we were there so we had no clean towels or sheets. The pool had leaves floating in it, the shower curtain was half covered in mildew, the sheets had a cigarette burn, there was a dark stain on the inside of the pillow, no shampoo...in a nutshell, a total get what you pay for...for 50 a night I would not recommend this dumpy place.

We stayed in one of the cottages here for two nights at the end of June. We asked to see it before paying, because the area seemed pretty run down. The cottage was very simple, with 2 double beds and the option of using the kitchen for ten dollars more each day. The room was clean, so we stayed, and had a pleasant visit, but I wouldn't choose it again. The area and some of the people hanging around were just a little too seedy for us.
