“Does not live up to it's promise”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2006

The Meadowlark Inn is a misnomer. It is actually a roadside motel, very noisily situated between two churches (kids skateboarding in the parking lot late at night). We stayed the weekend of April 29th in Room 1 and paid extra for a hottub. It was not worth it. The room was clean, but very small, old and very cheaply decorated. The bedding was worn and there was no bathtub.The hottub was new, however extremely small, and although it was fenced in, there was no landscaping. Just the tub with a fence around it. We had to walk out the front door of our room and around to the fence to get there. The best thing about the place was the nice oak trees and lawn. We could relax there with a bottle of wine. But after seeing some of the other nicer and price comparable places to stay, we decided it was not worth another try. If you are expecting a bed and breakfast type inn, this is definitely not it.

meadowlarkinn, Manager at Meadowlark Inn, responded to this review, 24 November 2008
I feel that this review is very exaggerated on the negative aspects. We are located next to a church but rarely ever is there any noise at night in the church parking lot. If there is a noise incident though I would hope the guest would contact me promptly and I would of course stop the issue immediately. The hot tub area for room "Chardonnay" room has recently been replaced and it is now a larged fenced in area with the hot tub,landscaping, reclining chairs, and a small sitting area. We have a door from the room to the hot tub area so you no longer have to walk out the front. Also, most of decorations and bedding material has been replaced. There are no cheaply decorated rooms or worn bedding. We hope that you choose to stay with us again and have a great experience.
