in april we stayed for two nights in the most expensive room on the top level at mildred’s b&b (the rose room). our stay was not at all what we expected.
1.there was a very steep and narrow staircase to our room (lugging the suitcases up and down was a [--]!)
2.the furniture was dusty; the sheets were of poor quality, the pillows were old and flat, the bathroom glasses were etched and one had a crack.
3.the room was over-filled with furniture, and almost every drawer was filled with “stuff.” It felt like a storage room. the one dresser that was empty contained an unused (but with an expired date) condom (charming touch). spare towels were kept underneath the bathroom sink, along with the cleaning supplies.
4.we had a room with views … a portion of lake washington and, looking downward, a backyard from the set of sanford & son (tires, old bikes, junk).
5.breakfast was disappointing … the silver was tarnished, my coffee cup was cracked, we had peaches which were still half-frozen. the eggs benedict … mediocre.
6.when we returned at day’s end, we found our bed unmade, coffee cups and pot still dirty, the bathroom the same as when we left. when we complained, we were told that we had locked our room and so it couldn’t be cleaned… duh! isn’t that what you do when leaving your room for the day? to their credit, they cleaned the room while we were at dinner, did a better job than when we first arrived, and even left us two hershey’s miniature chocolates.
1.on-street parking was always available
2.mildred’s is across the road from the beautiful volunteer park and its conservatory.
3.we enjoyed conversation with the other guests at breakfast.
we decided to leave early and didn’t have our second breakfast, choosing to eat out instead. mildred’s website makes it sound like a luxurious bed & breakfast. it’s not!
