The entrance into to the Mikaso Hotel will leave you thinking you have made a terrible mistake. You follow a dirt path with the smell of burning garbage, which leads you to a concrete sidewalk and the entrance to the hotel. There was no one in the reception area...never was our entire stay. We rang a buzzer and someone showed up and told us to come to the third floor restaurant to check in. As I was walking across the lobby I tripped on an invisible, unmarked step and suffered a hard fall which broke my glasses and gave me a severe knock on the head. Not a good beginning to our stay. After I recovered, we were shown to our room, which had a great view of the lake. The bed was not comfortable and the pillows were small and lumpy. When I asked the housekeeper for extra pillows, she told me they had no more. There was mildew in the shower and on the shower curtain. Otherwise, the room seemed acceptable for the price of $35/night. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was very good. Later in the evening, we returned to the restaurant in order to get a wi-fi signal to listen to a special NCAA basketball game. There was a small crowd at the bar across the room from us and along with some of the staff they were making so much noise we could not hear our game. I complained and was given a rude response from a man who later identified himself as the owner of the hotel. Some cross words were spoken. We considered moving to another hotel, but we had to prepay for our three-day stay and doubted that they would refund our money. The remaining days were uneventful. The hotel owner was pleasant and we ate in the hotel restaurant several times with no other complaints. After we requested it, the owner did put some reflecting tape on the invisible step and on another step. All in all, we would not choose the Mikaso Hotel again.
