“Disappointed In the Chanticleer”
Reviewed 11 March 2007

We booked this room on the Internet, where looks and description were deceiving. We stayed for 13 nights and so we got a suite with a small kitchen, bedroom, bath and living room. There were no kitchen utensils, dishes or pans, the oven and stove were old and dirty, the only plug in the bathroom didn't work, we ask for and never got a microwave, we ask for and get a small frig and one pan. The fake leather couch smelled, but the bed was clean and comfortable and we had clean towels every day. The whole suite was very old and run down.

There was no iron or ironing board in the room and when we ask for those we got to use them for a few hours and then had to return them.

One of the reasons we booked where we did was for the free breakfast. This was also disappointing as it consisted of only donuts of small muffins and Hawaiian punch -- not any juice or milk. We only ate there once.

There was free Internet in the lobby and a rather old kind of dirty coin operated laundramat with one washer and dryer. We went to a public one that was clean and had lots of washers and dryers.

We didn't try to use the pool so we don' t have anything to say about that.

The owners are Oriental and very hard to communicate with, but very friendly and helpful. We paid $60 for the "suite" so the price was right.

We are returning to the area this summer for another 13 days, but are staying someplace cheaper and in better condition.

I stayed here because i was attending a wedding at the bellhurst castle(beautiful) and wanted something very cheap because i was only going to be sleeping thier. I paid 55 dollars on friday night in june. The motel is older and in need of renovations. The pool was not open while i stayed. as for the rooms we had two and the air conditioning in one worked ok but barly worked in the other. all furnishings were older and some were in need of replacement and repair. Beds were so so not one out of 4 was great but i've slept on worse at other motels. Bathrooms were older but stocked with towels and toliet paper and such. Both rooms seemed to be relativly clean i personally did not see cobwebs or spiders. I don't see renovations being made anytime soon, It is owned by oriental family that seem like they are more then content in running thier dumpy motel as is with no renovations.

We stayed in a room that smelled awful, had cigarette butts in the shower and spiders and cobwebs all over. The low price reflects their lack of care in the property.
