Merrifield, Minnesota
Reviewed 30 Jun. 2016
The rooms are full of mold and LOTS of spiders. No ventilation in the bathrooms, and layers upon layers of paint on the mold in there trying to cover it up from guests. They make you pay for your toilet paper after you use the first roll. I was so disgusted by the place, but it was during Lakes Jam so everything was booked in the area. I asked to have someone come clean the shower as there was someone else's nasty bar of soap sitting on the floor of the shower and was yelled at by the owners sister who manages it (who lives in one of the rooms and sits outside with a cat drinking all day and night) she told me that it was my room and how did they know I didn't put the soap there? I was furious and left for the day without being able to shower due to their lack of housekeeping and returned that evening to find the door to my room cracked (I had made sure to lock it when I left because I had left the computer in there) I found things to be moved around and the clothes I had laid on my bed when I unpacked were on the floor. I went down and spoke to the owner and she said she had no idea and was busy with the bait shop, but no one else had a key except them and I. I am disgusted that they are even allowed to operate, it was like being in a 3rd world country in that room!
