We went to the Inn on the Creek for a quick getaway after Christmas. We had stayed there 8 years ago for part of our honeymoon and wanted to go back for sentimental reasons. Even though I had read some bad reviews about new management, we decided to give it a try.
Check hours were posted as 3:00-6:00 pm. We showed up at 4:00 and waited about 10 minutes for someone to show up at the front desk and check us in. No one was even close enough to hear us repeatedly ring the bell. The building seemed virtually deserted. The room was spacious and seemed clean enough. The jetted tub was large but not fancy by any means. The inn says it has wireless internet but I could not get a connection to the open signal and no one was at the front desk later to ask about a password to the locked signal. Definitely don't expect to see any staff or be able to call the front desk if you have a problem in the middle of the night. I don't know if the phones forward somewhere else, but I did hear them ring for quite a while unanswered while in the lobby.
Breakfast was definitely the most disappointing. The rooms did seem a little less expensive than other B&B's in the area, so plan on spending the difference on a good breakfast if that's important to you. We walked down at about 8:30 for breakfast expecting things to be well under way. We met a man as we came down the stairs and he said that they were just setting out the food and asked if we would like a waffle. We said yes, and got started on some yogurt and fruit that was setting out. After about 5 minutes, some juices and a plate of butter appeared. A few minutes later, the breakfast cook/housekeeper came out with a single waffle on a plate. It was really crunchy and unappetizing. A little later some muffins were brought out and we had one of those and left. So by 9:00 am, the single staff member was able to put out a few muffins, some juice, some yogurt, a small selection of fruit and a single crusty, dry waffle. There wasn't even anyone around to complain to if we wanted to.
My only other complaint was that the room was set to 74 degrees. I like things a bit cooler, and so I set the apparently adjustable thermostat lower. A little later, when the temperature hadn't dropped much, I checked and the thermostat was back to 74. I repeated this a few times before realizing that it didn't matter what you set it to, it would always revert to 74. Luckily it was extremely cold outside and we were able to crack an outside door open to cool things down a little.
I don't recommend staying here unless you don't care about breakfast and don't want to talk to the staff.
