We booked this place as we saw good reviews here. But our stay with this place proof to be very difficult and disappointing. First, neither our GPS or Google map were able to find the place, we ended up arriving at a very deserted place and we called the B&B and the lady would barely speak any English. It took us more than half an hour with the help of nice people we met at the gas station to show us where it is. Later we got to know the BB owner knows the Google map is not correct and she didn't bother to let Google know to fix it.
The room we were given are very small and the whole place is shabby and rundown. The toilet seat is broken, the cups have dust on them. The water boiler is broken. The floor makes noise when you walk on it and was not clean. The breakfast was OK. The parking space outside is almost impossible to park two minivans that we and my friend's family have without taking part of the street.
When we checked out, the owner wanted to charge us 56 dollars more than the booking price we confirmed with Expedia saying she gave us a "bigger" room. We argued about this. She still charged us 46 dollars more than what we should be paying and insisted that we pay cash only. Her reason was we have to pay 2 more people's breakfast but when we book through expedia, we already selected 2 adults and 2 children and the booking said that breakfast was included. Because of the language barrier, we gave up the fight and ended up filing compliant with Expedia instead. My friends' family was charged more than 40 dollars than their booking as well.
