4.0 Okay
Pros: I liked everything we only had 1 problem and it was a big problem I will tell you about but everything else was great.
Cons: I would have to say that the hotel and the room were very clean and inviting, but the minute I opened up the room door it smelled of dog. You could tell they had steam cleaned and tried to make it smell refreshed but the smell was just overwhelming to the point that it was hard to relax at all because of the smell. I new it allowed dogs but I just never thought that would be a problem. I guess I know that if it is a hotel that allows pets not to stay there so I suppose it was partially my fault other than that staff was kind.

Cons: The road noise woke me several times during the night even though our window faced over the parking lot and their was a Burger King between our Hotel and the main road. I would suggest some type of sound blocking liners for the windows to help muffle the road noise.

1.0 Poor
Cons: It needs major renovations.. We found burnt cigarette holes in the comforters.. Lock didnt work in the bathroom... None of the electric circuits were working...so we couldn't charge our mobiles.. and use our laptops.. Bathroom didn't have proper exhaust system,because of that ,after taking shower the floor was damp wet 'coz of the steam... I asked for clean towels...And got a call from the place asking me,what did i mean by clean sheets...i told them,that i had uncomfortable experience in the past with other hotels regarding this..they said that will have clean towels when we arrive & i also got an email conforming this...but i found lots of hair in the folded towels that was kept in the bathroom.. The room itself was cold,inspite of the heater ON....and it made a loud noise, so the night was uncomfortable and painful with a loud noise while we are sleeping...the main door itself was very tight & got stuck manytimes wgen we tried to open... Bathroom door can be opened from the outside, even though it was locked on the inside... We chose this place 'coz we had a good experience in other Scottish inn in Lancaster,Pennsylvania... This was worse...we booked it 'coz it was cheap compared to the other hotels nearby....even its for just one night...the comfort that they promised on the website that they will offer, was a bit of a stretch... We will never stay @ this place again.. We are totally dissatisfied with the experience we had..

5.8 Okay
Pros: Location was good. Close to the venue we were visiting. We had to leave early and management allowed a one night refund when they didn't have to. Nice folks.

2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: All of it. My dog got fleas here.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Staff friendly at check in.
Cons: Room was dirty. Embarassed to have my wife staying in such a nasty room.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Great price when we needed a hotel last minute.
Cons: The shower didn’t work the morning that we were trying to leave. There was an awful garbage smell outside when we first arrived that leaked into the room. The $2 cash only deposit was a little off putting since we don’t carry cash normally.
7.1 Good
Pros: I had no great expectations. In fact, my friend (fishing buddy) and I were just looking for a reasonably-priced, clean and comfortable place to sleep between 3 days of fishing. For our purposes, this was fine. However, it is an old facility that could certainly use a few cosmetic upgrades (rust deposits in the sink, for example). But everything worked, the room was clean, and the beds were comfortable - which is all we needed.
Cons: The (very minimal) breakfast - which was nothing more than packaged pastry and coffee - wasn't ready when we came by the office on our first morning, so we had to stop on the way to the lake to buy breakfast.
5.0 Okay
Cons: I reserved a nonsmoking room, when I arrived I was told that the only room available was a smoking room. It smelled so bad, the toilet was loose on the floor, shower faucets leak. This place needs to hire a maintenance man desperately. An O- zone machine would take most of the smell out of the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Minimal breakfast -- coffee and sweet roll only, but that was all I expected.
Cons: Everything was fine, although the location was 7 or 8 miles from the spot my friend and I were fishing. Very few restaurant options nearby, although the man at the desk suggested a very good Italian restaurant that was only a mile away.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable beds . ice cold air. hot water.
Cons: The fact that the pool was closed for remodeling.
