Owners could make more money if they invested in aPros: It was clean. It was the only room available in town. My reservation was there when I arrived.Cons: This place is old and built cheap. It is time for a face lift. Towels so threadbare they had holes in them, though they were clean...and same for bedding. I was a little nervous about sleeping in the sheets, honestly, but the bedding was clean, though decades old and worn out. Room was musty and mildewy smelling even though the fan runs non-stop. Holes in the curtains, electrical cords visible to every appliance, the clock didn't work - who cares, the tv did. The shower worked, but the drain was clogged so the tub filled to your ankles while you showered and the faucet hit me at chest-level even though I am only 5'4".
