Rating this as terrible and titling this "horrendous" is actually not saying enough. My friend and I stayed at this "hotel" (which is far stretch) just this past weekend. (Memorial Weekend 2012) We were only staying for a night and couldn't even make it through the night. There were bugs, the windows barely opened and no air conditioning. The "hotel" is old and needs renovating and the owner seems bothered by his guests. When asked for a tube of toothpaste he huffed and puffed as he got up from his place on the couch. Like I sad we ended up leaving and the following day we asked for a refund the owner was extremely rude and refused. Actually fought with us and was extremely nasty and we were threatened with his attorney and accountant. He made us go all the way down there in traffic (we live an hour away but it took about 2) and the coward wasn't even there to face us himself. He made some kid help us out. If you like to be treated badly and want to deal with hot/humid, old and dusty conditions... by all means stay at the Albatross.
