The room smelled gross. The room was dirty. Someonebleft a drink in the microwave. I noticed the end light on, I guess housekeeping did not. A foul smell came out of the Jacuzzi jets. The heater was broken-down cold air kept blowing although set to 80 degrees. Overall a horrible experience!

The office staff was nice, but it the property was seriously in disrepair. Room was dirty, tub faucets leaked, tub did look dirty and marks on walls as well. Carpet looked dirty and aged. Get the impression that it is one of those places which caters to those renting by the month. Not at all what I hoped for. Simple...

First of all, there is NO: iron, ironing board, hair dryer, or coffee pot. The room stinks like someone smoked 10 cartons of cigarettes in it. The carpet made my white socks dark brown----Clorox couldn't get that out! The entire room was dusty and dirty, I spent $50. on cleaning supplies and cleaned it right by myself----still stunk! front desk...

My work set myself and a few other guys up for 3 weeks in this place. After the first few days I was about to find a local campground and stay in a tent. When I first got to my room it smelled like a homeless person had died in it. I went up to tell the front desk guy...

I stayed here before I started using trip advisor. As my title indicates, I wasn't turned off by the place, but I also wasn't overly thrilled either. The beds were decently comfortable, the showers and bathroom area were clean and the overall cleaning was not bad. However, as the pictures show, the room was not in great repair. the bathroom...

Gross. Avoid at all costs. Dank, smelly, and tons of people that appear homeless. Wouldn't board my horse here much less human beings. I did not feel safe at all. Needs to be condemned, no joke. Smells of water damage/mold. I was fearful my car would be broken into. Save your money and go up the street.

I wish I could give a negative review. Worst motel I've ever been to. Owner and most staff are completely rude. Rooms are absolutely disgusting and stinky. The outside is just as bad, they had trash bags lying around, someones roof collapsed in while I was there too. I do not recommend spending your money on such a terrible place....

Kensington Inn isn't a horrible place to stay at. I've been reading other reviews of others stating how rude the staff is but honestly I've been staying there every year for close to 10 years now for a Paintball event and I have had nothing but good service from them. Any problems with the room have always been quickly taken...
