We stayed here because it was the only place that would allow a dog. While it is about as far away from the Ritz as you can get it wasn't horrible. I would bring flip flops or some sort of foot covering because to go barefoot is not a good idea. The floor is extremely dirty. It is very old...

I called to ask what the rate was and was given the rate (after I informed them of what date I would be staying there and how many people would be staying). While I was getting my card to book the room, after they knew what days I would be staying and after I verified the amount a 2nd time...

$40 Bucks vs $102... Just needed a room for a couple nights. No complaints. Mgr works hard to deliver on expectation of peace, quiet and functioning room... So there are nicer hotels in the area but you'll pay for it.

I booked a room here and when I cancelled the reservation I was still charged 10% of room for the inconvenience of the cancellation. The man on the phone stated it was to pay for the credit card transaction fee. WHAT A HEIST!!!

Hartwood_Inn_Manager, Manager at Hartwood Inn, responded to this review

Dear Suzette11464, We end up NOT charging you for cancellation. It is true that the company whose booking engine we are using charges us 10% per every online reservation regardless whether it was subsequently cancelled or not. If our attempts at renegotiating the terms of our contract with this company are unsuccessful, we will remove the option of online reservation...

Room was definately not clean. Floor, walls, bathtub, and carpets filthy. Smelled like smoke overpowering the room. Looks nothing like the pictures. We stayed one night because everything else was booked. Definately do no waste your time or money.

Awful filthy room. Front desk would not answer their phone when we called from our room. Holes and stains in sheets. Filthy shower curtain. We ended up buying Lysol spray and wipes to clean the room ourselves. Had booked 2 rooms long distance for a 3 day stay. The only reason we continued to stay for the duration is because...

We stayed here one night only because everywhere else was book within 60 miles, so we had no choice. The part of the motel that we stayed in is like the old strip type motels, where you enter your room from the road. First thing I did upon entering the room is take my husbands penlight and check the bed...

Had never been inside a room there And did not know what to expect. The only thing that could have made it nastier is bedbugs and roaches... Which I had to check to make sure there weren't! Absolutely no heat in room. Had to be about 45 degrees when we went in... Two hours later it warmed up. A nice...
