While it was a 5 minute walk from the Renn faire, the rooms could use an update. While I booked a king sized bed, our room had two full beds instead. The bathroom was sub par with the tub faucet protruding from the wall by a good 2 inches. (Bare pipe exposed). Said pipe also spewed brown water for 10 minutes before running semi clear. If it wasn't for how disgusting i was from working outside all day i would NOT have showered during my stay, my fiance sure didn't. The AC was weird. The buttons on the actual machine were busted and the only way to get it started was with a janky remote that barely worked. The floor didn't look like it was vacuumed from the last 2 guests and the tv had a good amount of dust on the back. Kinda gross not going to lie. Our door didn't even lock from the inside, the deadbolt was a few millimeters off center and no matter how we pushed or lifted the door it was a no go. The only good thing about our stay was Tammy, the front desk clerk. She was bright and bubbly and just made all of these little issues worth it with her personality alone. She was so excited to see our outfits for faire and asked to take photos, she made our late check in go smoothly and was more than happy to help our tired brains learn how the key cards worked. Tammy is adorable and the only reason I would consider booking another stay here unless they update their cleaning and maintenance regimen.

On today's episode of this old crack house.
When my family and I pulled up to the hotel we were fairly excited. It looked like a cute, quaint, family hotel. We were horribly wrong. When we got to our room the door was open and the staff was still "cleaning". They cleared out shortly and apologized because they were out of towels. We got in our room and it was dirty and gross but surprisingly no bugs. The furniture was pretty much falling apart. The highlight of my night was when I looked on the floor next to the nightstand and found a heavily used glass crackpipe. It would have been bad enough if it was somebody using it to smoke some weed but this was definitely a crack pipe. I guess I'm just lucky it wasn't a needle in the bed. I informed the front desk and while they were apologetic they didn't offer any other rooms or prorate our room. I'm ashamed to say that I didn't push the issue or leave. We spent a horrifyingly uncomfortable night, really just enough to catch a few hours of sleep before we ran the hell out of there. No one was in the office to check out at 5am and they didn't answer the phone so hopefully I don't get charged a late fee. Bottom line I would avoid this place like the plague.

The bathroom was disgusting with mold on the shower walls. The linens looked like they’d never been washed, gray, dingy and full of stains. The floor was littered and not vacuumed fully. I would not recommend this motel to anyone!

Completely unsatisfied !!
I cannot believe would have this place listed on there site!! As soon as we opened the door I could see it was not what we expected. No stopper in the sink...had to let the water run to shave!! The shower curtain was so bad we wouldn't take a shower....looked like it had been used for years!! No fitted sheet on the bed...just an unfitted mattress cover and top sheet, blanket which we didn't use, and bedspread!! We made the best of it and stayed through the night and left early the next morning! The people (owners?) were very nice but I would not recommend staying here!!
