    Staff is really nice and super friendly. That's unfortunately the only positive I can really say. It's in the middle of nowhere and it looks like nothing has been cleaned since the 90s. The beds are also probably from the 90s and you certainly feel it the next morning. There's no real common area and staff is only there during the operating hrs of the bar so finding someone to help you is also tricky. I'm also still waiting to get my key deposit back.

    We were sent to 3 different places to check in. Blind was broken in our room,we asked twice for it to be fixed & were told it was "on the long list of things to do", it was fixed after a few days. The carpet was dirty and sticky. The kitchen was filthy - not just dirty from guests but actually not cleaned regularly. We knew there wasn't AC, however there was 1 fan to be shared between 6 bunks - useless. Beds were uncomfortable, pokey springs. "common area" is a couch in a hall. Mouse in our room

    Unfortunately we had a terrible experience at the College Lawn Hotel. My room did not have a key, the room smelled awful and there were stains all over my sheet/blanket. I had to sleep on the floor of my own private room as the result of how unsanitary it was. My friend no linen on his bed at all and was not warned about this prior to arrival, so slept without any sheets or blankets. The only thing that wasn’t terrible about our stay were the nice staff and the location.

    Room was not ready upon arriving. Also had to ask multiple times for toilet paper to be restocked in the bathroom. Rooms, kitchen, and bathroom were very unclean and not kept up with. Disappointed that the service wasn't better and no one seemed happy to help with anything. Also no soap in the kitchen and had to wash dishes in the bathroom. Very noisy after dark due bar downstairs. No air con either.
