Made a reservation by phone a month in advance along with a group of other people. When we got there the guy behind the desk at first didn't know we were checking in because it wasn't written down in the book, who doesn't have a computerized system?! then he found our "reservation" written on the back of a piece of scrap paper. after running my card my "receipt" was also written on scrap paper. I guess we were lucky because another of our party got their room given away 20 minutes before they got there.
The rooms are very hit or miss, The 'Rose Room' (the one with the spirit of a prostitute) is very pretty if cluttered and had a much better bed than the one we got. Our bed was saggy and had kind of a mildew smell, shower and toilet were old but worked. There was random bits of trash around the room that really should have been noticed by housekeeping like abandoned makeup and crumpled up sheets of paper.
The restaurant was empty so our group decided to check it out, the waitress informed us that the kitchen only had 4 steaks and some chicken as our protein options, so the five of us finished off the steaks and one of the chickens (the woman who got the chicken came down with what we highly suspect as food poisoning). Food was ok, I could have made better but I have eaten worse.
The group did our spooky thing around town and when we got back to our rooms at around 2 we were all very ready for bed but it was difficult with the drunks making all sorts of noises and being loud.
all in all, I've been to worse places (like run away in the night worse) but if we ever come back to Ione for any of our spooky needs, we'll be staying elsewhere
