We drove up to the hotel and were terribly concerned about the appearance of the property. The roof was in bad condition with curling shingles, and there was a foam rubber cushion on the roof.
My wife and I looked at each other and decided we could not imagine what the rooms must look like. We chose to forfeit over $100 rather than actually go in the place.
We went to another property close by that was very attractive, had a great room, and it was cheaper that the Scottish Inn.
The Inn is in really sad shape and there were several attractive hotels in the area with lower rates. This place is not a bargain at any price.
