Cute from the outside, nice outside amenities, especially for kids and groups, but since the whole extended family that runs the place seems to live there and hangs out outside their rooms and spends a great deal of their time outside smoking in the ping-pong, pool table, barbecue area it is not very inviting for guests to hang out there or send their kids out there. The family does seem very nice though, and they seem to want to do a good job for their guests, which is why they got a score of 2 instead of 1. We were given what they said was their best room. The basic cleaning was ok but the wide headboard had a thick layer of dust on it. The bathroom was tiny without counter space. No AC and the room was very uncomfortable on this hot early June night even with the ceiling fan--the fan doesn't bring in any outside air, and there was no breeze this night. It could be difficult to leave the window open anyway with all the smoke outside. When I turned down the bed I discovered a disgusting looking stain on the sheet. It smelled like it had been laundered so I decided to just turn the sheet around and put the stain down by our feet. When I peeled back the covers, I found a 2-foot diameter coffee stain at the bottom, and it still smelled like coffee. Thus had to go out to the smokers and get them to bring clean sheets at 10:30 at night. They had already given a small discount due to trouble with their credit card billing but they didn't offer any additional discount for this disgusting problem. The king size mattress was in good shape and the place was fairly quite at night. I might consider staying there again if I checked the room thoroughly first but I would try other nearby lodging if I had a choice.
