I really wanted to like the Guesthouse in Ocean Shores. We were booked to stay there two nights Sunday - Tuesday. However, we decided to check out a day early. We couldn't bare to stay there another night!
Pros: Very nice couple running the hotel, they let us check out a day early --- no questions asked and didn't charge us the 2nd night. The room looked clean enough -- a little dated and worn but really not too bad. They had toiletries and coffee in the room if we chose to make it. They brought us extra towels when requested (although we had to wait awhile because the owners do EVERYTHING and they are short staffed.)
Cons: The room is quite big and the air conditioner couldn't really circulate the air or make it sufficiently cool. It wasn't hot in Ocean Shores, so there really shouldn't have been a reason that the room would get so stuffy. The window only opens 3 inches so no ocean breeze can make it inside. The room had a permanent stale cracker or corn-chip smell (I don't know how else to describe it). It was kind of overwhelming as we were sleeping. Granted, I may like my room cooler than most while I sleep. Usually at the coast that is no problem! Next time I'm definitely going to stay someplace with windows that open and/or a balcony to get a breeze in.
The bed was horrid and the bottom sheet was so old it kept coming off and we'd have to get out of bed to put it back on.
I was going to give my baby a bath, but some bits of gunk were in the bathtub. I opted to hold him while I took a shower.
The breakfast buffet was very mediocre. The poor owner was running around and couldn't replenish the items. Many guests were waiting around for either the hot food items or for a place to sit.
Obviously some guests have a much better experience, so maybe our room was the only stinky and stuffy one?
