We were in cottage 1 and it was a disappointment to say the very least. Old, shabby and stuck in the 70's with old stained linoleum, formica and faucets. I could not bring myself to go into the kitchen, which reminded of an exhibit at the Holocaust Museum in DC. For what we paid, it was disgusting. The traffic, honking and loud noises was so bad on Sat. night we could not sleep. The next morning we requested to be moved. No luck. The next night,on Sun., traffic noise was quieter. Monday night power was lost and the large generator power plant kicked in right next to our bedroom windows, blasting us out of sleep by midnight and continuing on for hours. I went outside and demanded some answers from the only person around, the night watchman. After much frustration the owner's son showed up with a beer in his hand, I asked him who he was and he replied Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater. I asked him if he was a guest there and he replied that he was the owner's son. I demanded that my husband and I needed to be moved because the noise was deafening. He then proceeded to move us to a unit away from the noise. By that time it was 2 AM and we were quite upset and lost more sleep. It was a nightmare.
We paid for 4 nights at Nirvana and got 2 nights of sleep in the worst accommodations we have ever had! The owners blamed the generator noise on the next door motel. However, the lack of care the Nirvana owners provided for their guests, who they clearly knew were experiencing a difficult time, was a disappointment. They should have come over and moved us immediately instead of us having to deal with the frustration of waiting and wondering what was going on and eventually having to demand that they move us at 1 am in the morning after losing sleep and being put through this bad experience. The owners apologized but blamed the problem on the motel next door instead of taking responsibility for making sure their guests are taken proper care of immediately when this ordeal first began..
