  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Did not appreciate phone call telling me I was staying at a different property then to arrive at midnight and be told I had to pay a pet deposit even though I had no pets with me and no pets notated on the reservation. Front desk agent argued with me for a long time. Entire hotel smelled like marijuana. Was told I would have a crib in the room as we requested and there was no crib and no one willing to get us one. This was a HORRIBLE experience, we will not recommend or stay here again. Breakfast was even TERRIBLE.

hotel needs to be cleaned better & updated

The town is beautiful but the hotel needs work. The old outdated carpet needs to go. The room we stayed in needs better lighting, new paint, clean bathroom ( tile was moldy), and room needed to be vacuumed (found hair and a used floss threader under the table.

Only if there is nowhere else to stay

Just as I settled in to relax for the night, the front desk called and abruptly asked my name and if I checked in, which I had done hours earlier. I hadn't even let go of the phone when it rang again. No intro, just the same questions and also asked if I knew who Novack was that would be checking in tomorrow. No. Okay. Less than half an hour later, someone was opening my door. I sent them back to the office. 15 minutes later, someone else was opening the door. I called the office, went through the same questions and ended up having to sign papers again. The next day my key wouldn't work and the hot tub was cold. That night the room above me had the tv blaring until 5 am. The guy at the desk pretended to go talk to them and actually went after the 5th time I called. He only answered twice. You have to go outside to get to the office, pool and breakfast room. The breakfast room was about half the size of a hotel room, so it was very crowded. We took our breakfast back to the room to find the key didn't work. Will go to a mom and pop hotel next time.
