Based on the 3.5 star rating, the 8+ customer review, and glowing photographs, I was expecting something else. Something nice. Something maybe even a little fancy. And while The Orchards Hotel might have been nice at one point, that point somewhere in the early 2000s or 90s.
Among the highlights:
-A bedspread with large holes near the foot of the bed (the holes were initially covered by a strange, decorative sash that had been draped across the bed)
-The worst "continental breakfast" I have ever seen.
-Strange brown crust on the exterior of the bathroom cabinets
-An old pink toilet, pink tub, and pink bathroom tiles (with cracked grout), all of which must have dated from the 1980s
-A water heater that took up half the closet and which had been haphazardly hidden with some drywall that hadn't been painted
-A restaurant and bar that was not operational and had been closed for months.
