I understand that recent visitors have had a good experience but it has not been mine. I stayed in the back room with noise (love making) from the upstairs, no heat and complete and utter freezing cold to the bathroom which required toilet paper to be deposited in the waste can rather than flushed. This may be ok for urination but not for feces. The worst part was an unwise recommendation to walk in the dark to what was said to be a "short walk" to the deli to get a sandwich. There was a ditch and I severely sprained my ankle, unable to see it. It took five months to recover. Owners indignant. There was supposed to be help with luggage which there was on the way in but not with it easily on the way out. Not my cup of tea. Funky, great. Also dirty. The negative factors greatly outweighed the positive.
