1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The hotel is Closed !!!!!
We arrived on Friday to find the hotel closed permanently and in the process of being torn down. Had to drive another twenty miles from there to find hotel rooms on our own, and pay a hefty sum over what our booked rooms were reserved at. Totally unacceptable on Expedia's part!!!!!

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was in the process of closing down in a couple of days, was a virtual ghost town and the iron I used burned a hole in a new pair of shorts. It was a sad experience because I'm sure at one time it was a fun hotel.

Weekend getaway
We had a couple with us. The hotel was nice and employees friendly. It was very clean but needs updating. We were surprised at the size of the entire space and the beautiful woodwork and such throughout the facility but were saddened to hear of its SALE at auction next Monday the 10th. We were very hesitant when we arrived to see a HUGE sign at the entrance saying AUCTION OFF JULY 10th. We didn't know if we would be even staying. The pool and hottub were great but the pool needed a good cleaning around the sides. I am sure they are very low staff with closing so soon. It would be a wonderful place to stay again if they stayed open. Also they replaced our hair dryer since it burnt up immediately and the refrigerator was not working. I know they costs are high but if they were to do a major scrubbing, new paint, and some new bedding/towels, it would be a continued hit as it was packed when we arrived and was so all weekend. We were disappointed that there was no restaurant any longer, bar or putt putt items to use. We so looked forward to the ice cream parlor but we were told most of this has been closed for years. SOMEONE help this place and remarket it with some TLC....IT WILL BE A HIT AGAIN!
