It sounds great and we decided to try something different. Wow!
First, where it got the name - creekside- is certainly a mystery. As we entered the hotel, the narrow driveway was blocked with cars. The view in every direction was a parking lot and another parking lot.
We had reserved a month ahead and were really looking forward to a creekside hotel. Our room was on the main floor, in a small building adjacent to the parking lots. The view was the parking lot (you guessed it) and the back of a gray building- not sure what it was. Even dreary outside.
We stayed about long enough to bring in part of our luggage and were so depressed with the room, we knew we had to do something. The room needed painting, the carpet was soiled, the fireplace was dirty-- it was claustrophobic.
After a discussion about not being able to stay one minute, much less the two nights we had reserved, we told the desk clerk that the room was awful. We suggested that we would just go down the road a little further, and he said, "No problem" and cancelled our reservation. He just worked there, thank goodness.
We then noted all the vacancy signs in town and went back to our original motel we have been staying for over 30 years. We will continue to stay there when we are in town as the Little Pigeon River DOES flow outside our room and the window reveals the tall trees from our patio.
Thank goodness we had the good sense to get out of the Quality Inn Creekside.
