1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Felt like a dirty basement. Shower mat had a huge rip in it and was stained, coffee maker was very dusty, the lamp was broken near the wiring, and more. They aren't good at answering their phones (didn't answer all day), and there was no one on property. I complained about the filth, and one owner said she was offended. The other said he cleaned everything himself, which made me even more uneasy! It was 10pm, and we were thinking of alternatives to me staying in that rm, like maybe a different rm. Then the other owner said he doesn't want me staying at his hotel if i'm not happy with it and left me with no place to sleep late at nt. I was livid. This is the worst hotel service and cleanliness I have ever received in my 50 yrs. Highly do not recommend this place. There are a lot of other bad reviews too.

Not the best for our money but clean
Pictures of property were more flattering than actual on which we based our hotel pick. Although old, it was fresh and very clean, smelled of disinfectant when we walked in but reassuring that it was clean in this time of COVID. Had trouble with Wifi but management was helpful via text. Battery in TV remote was low so couldn’t use. No hot water for shower.
