We had booked our room well in advance and yes it was the July long week-end. Upon arrival, we checked in and were handed our room key. The room turned out to be in the basement. Wow talk about old and worn-out. A shower that one would never use, cigarette burns in the carpet, 2 small windows and furniture that was beat up worse than any we had seen. We could not believe that anyone would rent out a room like this. We refused the room - first time in many years and we do travel a fair bit.
The desk clerk (who I believe was the owner) bent over backwards to help us once we threatened to go down the street to one of his competitors. He proceeded to give us a room on the main floor. The room was clean with comfortable beds. And yes the smoke detector was in the desk and the small air conditioner struggled to cool the room. The breakfast was about what you would expect - very basic.
Would we stay here again - probably not. Even though management did their best, we felt that the experience with the basement room left a sour taste in our mouths. Spend the extra $10.00 and try the competition or if you are offered one of the basement rooms - make sure that you do not pay more than $25.00 a night for it. That is all it is worth.
