As the other reviews say, the owners are very friendly. The room's floors, bedding, bathroom was clean, but thick dust has collected in areas that obviously do not get attention. There is not a microwave or coffee maker in the room, so i ventured to the hallway (which is where their breakfast/coffee area is) to use the public microwave, but did not since it was disgustingly dirty with food and fingerprints inside and out! So much for trying to warm up with hot instant cocoa. Why was i cold? Because the room i stayed in (number 1) gives you no control over the heat. I had a hard time sleeping and ended up taking all the bedding off the other bed in the middle of the night because i was so cold. For the price, i did not want to complain too much. But, then in the morning, i thought i'd at least i'd get a hot shower to start the day- NO! I let that water run for 5 minutes, and still no hot water! aaarrrgh! Breakfast?! Powdered donuts and room temperature fruit juices (because they don't keep it on ice and just leave it sitting out in this hallway i mentioned before). I don't mind taking the cheap route sometimes, but this was ridiculous. Next time i'll pay the extra money for the Grand Union just down the street.
