OK With Qualifications
Posted Aug 11, 2014
There were pros and cons about our stay at Cobblestone Inn in Vinton, IA. It is a relatively new hotel, so the bathroom, etc. were in good shape. Everything was clean and in good shape in our room and lobby area. It's nice having coffee and tea in the room, microwave and fridge. The staff was very friendly. It was nice having a 24/7 coffee bar with free cookies in the lobby. However we were disappointed that the hot breakfast that was advertised as being served until 10:00 a.m. was gone when we got there at 9:15. The coffee and juice were empty as well. They did put more coffee and juice out, but we were told that the night crew puts the breakfast out, and when it's gone it's gone. Really? I could understand if it was 9:55, but 9:15 is too early to run out of food. There were several guests who came later than my party, and they weren't pleased either. Another disappointment was the discomfort in our room. It was very humid and musty smelling. We tried adjusting the temp and fan, etc., but nothing did any good. For some reason the hall light and bedside lamp were hooked together, so we couldn't operate the bed lamp without having the hall light on. That was kind of inconvenient if you just wanted a reading light.
