When the heater air came on it had a musty smell which really bothered my sinus. Also fan in the bath doesn't work.

"Thin towels, workers smoke at entrance and leave butts."
Overall score2.0/ 5
This is the second highest priced hotel in this area. The bath towels were very thin, no service, no amenities such as lotion, make up remover, workers smoke at entrance and leave ash trays full of butts on tables, have to leave towels outside door to get clean ones. Hotel provides two small squares of soap, one small shampoo and one small conditioner for a three day stay. We enjoy sitting on a porch (there is none) and watching the horses and buggies pass by in the evening. I was very disappointed as this appears on the outside as a top notch hotel. Breakfast was the usual powdered eggs, great sausage, cereal and pastries. Milk was in a pitcher with the top missing and some of the plastic utensils were unwrapped. The beds were clean (no bedbugs) but the sheets did not stay on the bed.

"Not all amenities were available."
Overall score3.0/ 5
They advertise a full family restaurant however there is none. Pool was closed but no mention of it when booking room(s). I won a free night at the hotel while I was there. Tried to use it when checking out but manager had to approve it and he was not available. Not even there, however he would be later that day. I wasn't waiting. Now to avail myself of the free night, I'm going to have to come back sometime before 12 30 2020. 6 hour round trip for me. They advertise free cookies but none were available. Breakfast food was not very good and no variety. Rooms were comfortable, clean and a little bigger than most others. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.
