Where to begin:
1). Essence Suites was our contingency plan, because Champagne Lodge was booked for the days requested.
2). We liked the idea of a couples only hotel, as we were visiting on a romantic getaway.
3). The website is VERY MISLEADING.
4). This is not a boutique. It is a motel that offers a variety of adult novelty, marital aids, and assorted flavored lubricants for anyone that so desires.
5). The room square footage is manageable. We had a Jacuzzi tub and steam room/shower.
6). The platform bed was encased in hideous foul-smelling shag carpet. The epitomy of tacky circa 1970's.
7). Each room has a love swing, which would have been fine, if properly sanitized and cleaned. Take a chance with that? No thank you!
8). The walls are paper thin. Good luck with that.
9). Our room was located next to a 24 hour McDonald's.
10). Private, romantic, and secluded. This place is NOT!!! NEVER AGAIN!
