I have stayed at this location on a number of occasions in the past. It is a humble location if you just need a place to lay your head for the night, or are hunters with muddy boots, etc. The property is old and run-down, the bathroom has only communion-wafer size soaps and no shampoo, and the staff generally look very seedy (dirty, oily threadbare clothes, etc.) When I am "roughing it" on a hunting trip my expectations aren't very high, and the low price is attractive.
However on my last visit to this facility I experienced a new level in dissatisfaction that places this hotel in "last choice".
When I arrived in the room I soon perceived a nauseating smell emanating from somewhere in the room. After sniffing around I detected an odor in the bedspread, which smelled like fecal matter and/or wet dog. I also smelled a musty/moldy smell in the bathroom. I brought the bedspread to the office and asked for a clean one. The staff provided a clean one and were initially very apologetic, but then began to argue with me about the moldy smell in the bathroom, claiming I must be imagining it (I had asked for a new shower curtain as this is a frequent culprit). I decided to pick my battles and let it go. Later, I also noted an odor coming from the upholstered room chair. I sprayed the room copiously each night with Febreze.
The sheets had some substance on them that made my skin sweat when in contact. The shower drains so slowly I was standing knee-deep by the end.

The hot tub was clean & hot, the pool was a pleasantly warm temperature. We had the pool & hot tub to ourselves most of the week-end. Nice having coffee, juice & water on hand all the time. Rooms were large & clean. We had an enjoyable time in the Granite Falls/Marshall area.
