Upon arriving for our 2 night stay, I was a little shocked to see that in order to get to the office, you had to walk through what looked like a greenhouse that had been through WWIII. It was full of dead, overgrown brown plants that kinda creeped me out. The owner, Paul, who has about as much people skills as a NJ tolltaker, said he didn't have our reservation. We did have a copy of it, but it was on our laptop and didn't have a printout of the res. He said he could show us some rooms. The first one was the honeymoon suite, $120.00, which you had to walk through a landmine of dog poop to get to the front door, It was bigger than we needed, and we really wanted our $85.00 room that we had booked, so he showed us a room in a different building, which we said we'd take, he said this rm was 99.00. At this point I didn't want to argue with him so we took it. Before he left the room I said I smelled cigarette smoke in the room, and he assured us that no smoking was allowed. After being in the room for about 15 minutes and looking around, I noticed that the bedspread had a big tear in it and the towels were dingy grey (they were, at one time, white towels), but the clincher was when our throats were starting to close up from the smell, so I walked backto the office, through the landmine of dog poop and was met with irritation that I was bothering him. He finally gave us the key to the honeymoon suite. This room was really no cleaner than the last, and the towels in this room were even dingier than the last. Breakfast was from 7:30 to 8:30, not a minute later I was informed. Well, not very accomodating when you're running a B&B for people on Vacation!
My husband and I travel extensively and use B&B gift certificates all the time. We usually always check Tripadvisor before booking.... my bad for not doing it THIS time!
