My husband and I booked online because the price was good and the hotel had some favorable reviews and nice photos on the web site. When we entered the room we were met with a strange strong smell, we think cheap deoderizer. The room wasn't terrible but was quite run down. The bathroom, however, was terrible with stained toilet sitting crooked in a narrow ratty alcove. The shower was also very water stained and in disrepair and the whole area reeked with the stench of urine.
The owner said we could try a different, presumably newer, room but it would be $25 more. We found another room at the Rainbow Hotel just down the street and it was wonderful and clean and in good shape. It was the same price and also included breakfast.
The owners of the Dillon were accommodating in allowing us to cancel the reservation and they deserve credit for that.
