Was guest of an organization who made my reservations here. When I arrived, I immediately checked Trip Advisor for reviews. There are some tough ones. The property is not as bad as described but there are certainly weaknesses that could discourage travelers, especially at the rate of $298 a night on weekends.
Wifi was off and on; explanation was power outage was the cause and couldn't get the cable company to repair it on the weekend. Probably true. But you could haul your lap top around the property and find a hot spot; lobby seemed to work.
Continental breakfast was okay. . . . Keurig coffee maker with choice of brew packs.
And yes the innkeeper, who seemed in some reviews to be kin to Norman Bates, was a little loud and full of rules. ..
One story I must share. . . .read in a review about the person opening the microwave in the room and finding a cold pizza slice housekeeping missed. When I read this, I got up and looked in my microwave. This is true: No pizza slice but there was crusted, dried pizza sauce that had come from a slice. I proceed to do housekeeping and wash the glass tray.
An investment of money to spruce this place up could make it a wonderful boutique motel with charm. There are beautiful grounds, a pool, and parking. And note no places close by to walk for a meal or any service.
Better housekeeping and more attention to details could really raise the reviews.
