1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
For starters, the picture is mis-leading. It's a dump. Turned out the rooms were all booked, so we ended up with a room at the motel next door. We were upstairs, and had to walk through the snow outside our door on the deck. The bathroom sink was filthy. I thought it was just a stained old sink until I ran the water to wash up. It took a minute to get hot water, and because of that, the sink kept filling up. Then,..... It never drained. We asked for another room, and after waiting a half hour to get a new room, we said forget it. And no refund! We ended up driving back home to Milwaukee. My girlfriend was so upset that our trip was ruined.

Traveled with family
Disliked: Amenities
There was a great deal of ice left from the previous day's snowstorm which could have been cleaned up better and also salted. I am a disabled veterans -- leg amputee -- wallking with crutches and felt very threatened with those conditions. ALSO I asked for 1st floor room and had to climb steps with snow coating to get to our 2nd floor room.

The only reason I stayed here was because all I wanted was a place to sleep and it was the cheapest. With that said,the hotel recently purchased the adjacent hotel, which is where I stayed. It was called the Top Hat. It is extremely outdated. The carpet was dingy and they had a hole in the shower covered with caulk. There is no cable tv, even though it's supposed to be one of the amenities. On the plus side, it was cheap.
