We made reservations ahead of time for a King non smoking, should be an easy check in....right? WRONG! With no one ahead of us it took over half an hour. They didn't have a King available so the check in clerk had to call the manager and it took him 20 min. to come to the desk. Tired of waiting we took a room with 2 double beds. We found the carpet to be dirty, the beds were made but in no way crisp like you expect in a hotel. They were very sloppy looking. The beds were comfortable and lots of pillows ( always a plus in my book). The rooms aren't really that bad, they just in need of some serious updating. There were no cover on the light in the bathroom and wires were exposed. We couldn't keep electrical items plugged in, in the bathroom the plugs were so loose. The bathroom is in serious need of caulking. The furniture and TV were in good condition. The walls are very thin and people talking in the hallway was disturbing, especially when it wasn't the guest talking to loud it was employees. And the final blow was finding out at 8 am the the inn is right next to the railroad tracks! We were awaken thinking there was a train coming through our room! We decided not to check out the free breakfast because unfortunately in this inn there is no value but you get exactly what you pay for!
