If you would like some modern conviences try another place. The rooms our group were in were so far from front desk you had to drive to get there. Our room was very small and had no clock, no phone and a television that was so small you had to sit on end of bed to see picture. I think it was a 12" screen. Our towels were all mismatched with different colors and patterns on the bath, hand and washcloths (when we got them). Their was no bars of soap so when you wanted to wash your hands you had to go in a walk in shower and dispense liquid soap from a dispenser on the far wall. There was a refrigerator that shut off everytime you turned the lights off and a microwave that never did work. If you wanted ice you walked outside the rooms down a walkway and if you were lucky there would be a bag of ice in an old chest type ice box. Of course everyone would stick their hands in the bag of ice so it was definitely not very sanitary. To get to front desk you drove down the street ,past a very good shrimp house restaurant, up a windy hill and there was the front desk, with a bar and I think a small restaurant inside although I never saw anyone eating there. The bar service was very slow as the bartender was also the front desk clerk checking in/ out guests, answering the Phone and also the waitress/waiter serving customers who were out side the building in the patio. I think I will look for another place next time I'm in the area.
