2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Immediately upon entering building was an extremely overwhelming foul odor of cat piss. DON’T STAY HERE. Numerous feral cats roaming indoors and all around property. DON’T STAY HERE Restaurant closed. Pool has obviously been closed for at least a decade because it was overgrown with weeds, inside the pool itself. DON’T STAY HERE. The hallway leading to our room was almost unbearable because of the smell of cat piss. DON’T STAY HERE. Overhead lights are out, so they plugged in lamps from the rooms to light the hallway. DON’T STAY HERE. Zero water pressure for the yellow water that came from the faucets. DON’T STAY HERE. At some point the tub needed repairs, so it was painted and now all the paint is peeling off. DON’T STAY HERE. Overall… DON’T. STAY. AT. THIS. NASTY. PLACE.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Over the 20 years I have been staying at Bent's Fort Inn, it has continually deteriorated. Room was OK; but there are no facilities and the lobby, grounds and exterior are much in need of repairs and upgrading.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
It was a little hard to figure out how to get to. Looks like it had been closed for a long time and maybe was just being opened back up. Needs a lot of yard work and pool work.
