      Outdated decor but food is great

      The food here is amazing. The staff are friendly. The place is old and probably hard to clean. Considering we stayed during covid, the room was dusty and there was a bobbypin left on the bathroom floor. I’m not a super paranoid person but I was a little surprised that not more was done in terms of cleaning. The decor is outdated and it stands to reason that the place used to be a retirement home- except for the bathroom, which was modern and nice. The room we stayed in was super hot even with both windows open. One of the lamps didn’t work. I seldom bother to review hotels but for the cost the best thing about this place was the food. They charged the wrong credit card for our food order despite us clarifying at the desk, and I never got my deposit back despite leaving the room completely intact and not too unlike how we found it.
