Room looked tidy when we first opened the door but it didn't take much to discover that two of the 3 lamps in the room didn't work, the carpet was dirty and bunched up like it had no padding under it and it had installed a long time ago, the bathroom floor was dirty, the shower grout showed significant mildew, and the toilet didn't flush completely even when the tank was full. In fairness, the pool was nice and appeared to be clean. The breakfast room was nice enough, though the breakfast offerings were marginal. Parking was fine.
This is clearly an old motel that needs a serious renovation. In the short run, it needs a housekeeping staff that gives a damn and checks that the lights and plumbing fixtures work, the floor is clean, and the mildew problem is addressed.
This property was rated with 3.5 stars in the tourist visitors' center book and the one current review in Trip Advisor was favorable too. That's how we ended up here. Our experience says these ratings are flat out wrong. We sure wouldn't stay here again!
