First off, I have one very simple requirement in an accommodation: Be clean. I wish I had known what I was getting into, or took the previous reviews seriously. We stayed in the apartment across the street from the B&B. The room was not cleaned once (if ever, all summer) the entire time we were there. Apparently cleaning consists of making the bed and emptying garbage. Thankfully, there was a vacuum in the closet. The filter was so clogged, I had to take it out to use the vacuum. Once I did, the amount of filth that machine picked up was sickening. The couch was covered in dog hair, so we had to use the bed spread as a cover. The linoleum and tile on the floors was filthy. I didn't dare go barefoot the entire stay.
The owners are simply not nice people. We were forced to leave early due to an oncoming hurricane (mandatory evacuation). When we let the owners know, we received an "ok". No, apologies, no offers of a partial refund, nothing. They got our money, and that's all that mattered.
I will say that the breakfast was pretty good, and not a simple continental breakfast.
I can't vouch for the actual B&B, but the apartment is simply disgusting. Hopefully these negative reviews that are piling up will do some good.
