The staff was very friendly and polite. I checked in around 5 and upon entering my given room, I saw empty water bottles and other items suggesting someone was still in the room. I went back to the front and the young woman was very apologetic and immediately gave me another room. As, I was standing there the manager or owner not sure which came up and asked me if everything was OK. I said yes and told him what I saw but it really wasn't a big deal. He was very apologetic as well and upset that the room was not cleaned as it should have been as there wasn't anyone in that room any longer.
The pool seemed nice (we didnt use it) Room was clean Staff was nice, not overly friendly, but not rude Walls were thin, (early morning seniors like to sit by the pool-where are room was-and talk loudly)
Bed was too firm for me, but not uncomfortable Toiletries were sparse (shampoo, lotion, and soap...no conditioner?) and cheap Fan in the bathroom was broken Continental breakfast was the worst I've ever had
They have an exceptionally good, hot breakfast, starting at 6am! The facility is older, quaint, comfy!
The Inn was fairly large, but everything including pool area were kept neat and clean. parking areas convenient to rooms, with enough spaces we were able to park at our room, Was very close to everything we were doing in the area. Front desk help & asst Manager were ALL very nice, Very helpful. Everyone went out of their way to help. Housekeeping was prompt, friendly, & did her job quickly and efficiently.
carpet should be steam cleaned.
