We stayed 2 nights on sept 15 and 16. I enjoyed our stay and Terry at the front desk was a nice addition. Friendly guy who was welcoming and hospitable. I didn't read the review until after we came home and honestly was glad I hadn't. I may not have stayed there. The review are particularly nit picky for this budget priced hotel and a lot of the negativity just isn't accurate.
We originally booked at the Econo Lodge, but once there was so put off by the location (across the street from a poorly maintained trailer park) and the lack of scenery we just couldn't stay!
The White House has a great location, gave us a great deal on 4 adults in a room with 2 bedroom areas and has a nice big bathroom.
Negative things from other reviews that were semi true:
No shampoo - they DO have shampoo to offer, but not sure why they don't stock the rooms with it. Kinda weird that you have to ask for it.
Uncomfortable rooms - the beds were soft and comfortable. Could have used 2more pillows per bed. I bet if we asked they would have brought more.
The rooms were also very quiet and we were next to the elevator. We were a bit worried about the noise, but were never disturbed by it.
Parking - true, the spots are smaller and they could use more parking. But the area is tight with a lot of people in a little town. Although small, this was not a problem for anyone we spoke with.
Towels - yes, it's time to replace them. They are a bit rough and tired. No problem though. Water pressure was great and had no problems with draining.
Bugs - absolutely not. We are ridiculously thorough when checking out hotel rooms and there is no indications of bugs of any type!
The only negative was the hot tub. WAY over chlorinated, it burned your eyes after just a bit. It was foamy with green and brown layers on the foam. That's my only complaint. Seriously, that tub needs to be drained, scrubbed and maintained!
The overall stay was very nice, and I'd stay again here next time we're in Keystone!
