1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
On the third night I was out on the hotel's balcony, looking into the mountains. Eventually I got up from a chair an leaned on the wooden railing of the balcony. Almost immediately the railing gave way and I fell down about nine feet with it over a sharp concrete ledge onto the concrete walkway. After laying there helpless in excruciating chest pain I could not find my cell phone to call for help. After over one hour later the only other hotel guest came home and tried to help me up. My hip and chest were hurting terribly so we decided he would drive me to the ER in the next town, Silva, NC. There they found three broken ribs and severely bruised hip. After finally getting home a week later I retained an attorney to sue for damages and pain and suffering. It took almost a year for my ribs to heal and my hip was now found to be one inch out of alignment, making it painful and hard for me to walk. This took again several months of physical therapy to correct. By the way, the aforementioned balcony railing consisted of old rotten wood, held together only by the paint on it. Why did I wait three years to inform you? Since it was under litigation I was not allowed to talk about the case. Now I have just been informed by my attorney that the owners of Jarrett House hotel have filed for bankruptcy some time ago and never even carried liability insurance. I sincerely hope that you take this hotel off of your booking list. Please contact me if you need further information.

Not what it used to be, but will it be again?
We have stayed at the Jarrett House many times in the past and have had very good experiences. However, this time was very disappointing. We understand the hotel is under new ownership, so I want to give them a bit of grace. I suspect the previous owner had let the place run down, and maybe disposed of a lot of furnishings. It's probably a very expensive property, so money may not be there yet to properly fix and furnish -- yet. The room we had was bare-bones, the bathroom was utilitarian, and the overall condition is in desperate need of upgrade. The place was reasonably clean, just old and barren. The nice, homey, front dining room has been changed to into a sitting parlor (unfortunate). The dining room was moved to the windowless back room (bad move) with "church retreat camp" decor (awful). Breakfast seems to have come from cans. Honestly, this place could be a real gem again if it were closed for a year and properly renovated with a historic preservationist architect in charge -- with a lot of money. So, I want to give the new owners a bit of grace and chance to get things together. But, one needs business to raise money to put back into the business. I wish them the best of luck, but it's going to need a lot of intentional effort and polish to step back up to the heritage and expectations folks have had of the Jarrett House. The location is great!
