Wow! The following review MIGHT show some sarcasm. The room was beautifully updated, in 1970 or earlier. The beds, though rock hard, appeared to inspire a nostalgic feel with the bed spread covers that both looked like they were bought at a garage sale AND felt as though they were meant to torture those unlucky enough to sleep within them. The bartender was about as friendly as Chris Brown after a few cocktails; they felt a tip was expected, not earned. Dining was legendary, just like the sign says; is legendary means that no one will talk about it at any point in their lifetime unless they got deathly sick from it. They did have a karaoke DJ that night, he was awesome but not likely affiliated with the hotel. I agree with many other comments; a landmark, yes. Beautiful outward look, yes. Trash inside, yes. Unless the owners want it to be razed, they should look at selling or hiring a manager who knows how to manager. Bad form, Sawmill, bad form, indeed.
