For lack of better words, I will just list the pros and cons.
Pros: Quiet, Nothing Commercial, Secluded, you don't have to cook.
Cons: Moldy shared Shower walls/floors/curtain, No Air Conditioning, Scheduled Meal Times, Greasy Food, The communal shower is down the hall, No locks on the doors, there is a sense of community between the guests that have been coming for 30+ years that you are not a part of, there is absolutely 0 privacy in the hotel, you MUST be on time for meals - from start to end they last about 35 to 45 minutes. That is from the time they ring the cow/farm/ship/train bells and everyone has gathered outside the door waiting to be let in to the time the last morsel is cleaned off the tables as though no one has ever entered the dining room. You have an assigned table, not to be changed throughout your stay unless the management needs the space. The portions are preset and predetermined on plates most nights. We got caught in traffic and were late one evening and were told to 'go find our own dinner elsewhere'. The whole place reminded us of our grandparents retirement home, with more restrictions.
We felt liberated upon our leaving!
